Post#1 WT: O'Neal, Blanks Engage In Heated Confronta
Tue Jan 22, 2013 8:35 pm by blackstar

Jermaine O'Neal and Phoenix Suns general manager Lance Blanks had a heated, expletive-filled confrontation in the coach's office on Monday, according to league sources.

"It was really bad," one Suns source said Tuesday afternoon.

The confrontation took place after Lindsey Hunter's first practice as interim coach of the Suns.

There has been unrest within the Suns' organization.

O'Neal won't accompany the Suns on their trip to Sacramento.


Part of the solution to our big man problems? He fits in the country club culture we got goin here.

We really have nothing to offer for him. Although I would love to have him here.

After what happened he'll probably be available for peanuts, pretty much. Cut Sheed if he's out for the season or trade White.

I'd love to have Jermaine on this squad. Great size and good rebounder.

Prob wouldn't cost much but what can he really do now? I guess he'd be a solid option if we don't get K-Mart.

Altercation? False! Argument about a coaching change or coaching hire? Even more false! That's is not my position or job to determine that!

Have any of you guys actually seen what O'Neal looks like on the court this year?

Trust me, I did. He played like he was in 2007. But that only lasted for 10-15 games. Then he started playing less minutes.

Take a look at what JO did this year.



I don't think he was able to do this last year, or even two years ago. It's either the knee treatment in Germany, or it's the PHX suns med staff.

I only want JO so he can come off the bench behind Sheed. Then we can trade Amare for ZBo.

I don't want Jermaine here. He was on the Heat, Celtics and Pacers. He also is injury prone.

I think every contender would want JO's presence. He is tough, plays good D and has veteran leadership skills.
I wouldn't mind JO on the Knicks.

Felton/ Kidd/Prigioni
Shumpert/ JR Smith
Melo/ Novak
Amare??/ Sheed
Chandler/ Oneal/ Camby?

This is a deep lineup full of former stars and current stars.

Easy a ECF team who can challenge Heat.

Are you really implying Jermaine O' Neal is the difference that would propel the Knicks?

Nope. I'm saying, JO would be a good addition. Especially if he is healthy.
