Porter to be fired?

February 13th, 2009 · 4 Comments

And we all thought this weekend would just be about good old-fashioned basketball and fun? Nope, Peter Vecsey of the New York Post stoked the Suns are going to fire Porter rumors by, well, writing in Friday’s column that the Suns will fire Porter, who would be replaced by general manager Steve Kerr. In a […]

Cavaliers 109, Suns 92 – Turned over

February 11th, 2009 · 10 Comments

What a fitting way for Phoenix to enter the All-Star break. In Wednesday’s 109-92 defeat in Cleveland the Suns suffered their worst turnover game of the year – which is saying something – allowed an opposing stud guard to set a career high, started strong but then faded and ultimately got blown out in a […]

Bring back Iavaroni … as an assistant

January 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

When the rumors of a Shaq to the Suns trade first made the rounds last February, I posted on my buddy’s Facebook wall, “I GUARANTEE it doesn’t happen.” Shows how much I knew. But the reason I was so sure those crazy rumors were just rumors is because if there ever was a player who […]

Suns 102, Trail Blazers 92 – A balanced effort

November 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

Mission accomplished. Well, kind of. Generally the Suns won’t be happy to play .500 ball over any stretch of games, but doing so this week when hosting the Pistons, Lakers and Blazers and going to Utah has to be seen as an accomplishment of sorts after the Suns finished off Portland on Saturday, 102-92.
