So true. The Suns management should be ones to be fired. Gentry is not a bad coach, at least offensively.

Whoa. Houston is on a six game losing streak. Utah has lost some games, too. If only we were at least somewhat healthy... this is so depressing :(

Lou Williams out with ACL tear. I'm guess Morrow just got harder to acquire.

I wonder if Kahn had interest in Lou for him to tear his knee? Watch out Morrow, Kahn might be thinking about you.

Simply having kahn interested in you is enough for ones knees to explode.

I wouldn't mind getting Hill back in a push for next year.

Never thought they would leave, ever. I remember the battles in the early-mid 00s when Arco was always packed with diehards.

Better them than us. I'd feel pretty uncomfortable with Taylor selling the team while Seattle was still looking for a franchise to steal.

That's why you dont trade for someone like Varejao like we had on this board some time ago. No team especially us needs a guy who gets hurt for extended or season ending injuries constantly.

If he was on our team he'd suffer a knee injury while being sidelined.

At least that saves us from trading for him.

Bobcats are the epitome of a young team that chokes. They choke away every time down the stretch.
