OT: Jermaine O'Neal&Sun's GM have cussing match

The Suns are likely one of the worst franchises in the Association, along with the Bobcats, Kings and possibly the Hornets.

Phoenix Suns center Jermaine O'Neal and general manager Lance Blanks engaged in a blistering, expletive-laced confrontation in the coach's office on Monday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
"It was really bad," one Suns source said Tuesday afternoon.
The confrontation happened after interim coach Lindsey Hunter's first practice and unfolded within earshot of several Suns players in the locker room, sources said.

O'Neal would f### him up no doubt. Jermaine doesn't take any crap.

BTW, you forgot to include the Raptors on your list.

JO liked BC

Trade Peaches for him. Then he can help Val and Ed
why was hakeem called "the dream"??"

Because it rhymes with 'Olajuwon'.

Can't forget about the 'Zards. Re: Worst franchise.

Sadly the Raptors are not that far ahead... :(

JO must have been upset when Gentry got fired. Hopefully the Raptors get JO. He was balling earlier in the season when he played 20+ minutes. Now the GM wants Gortat to play 40+ minutes for tanking purposes.

I'm more shocked that the N'sync guy's a gm.

Hornets have a better history and situation than us. I could argue the Kings are now better since they have new ownership and a freak of nature in Cousins

It would be interesting to have JO on this team again to help our bigs. However, not only we have no playing time for him, also it is difficult to make a deal with the Suns where they may demand much more from us. I wouldn't do Acy for him, because I think we should have him for free.

We'd still be cheering on Hedo if he wasn't.

I'd love to have JO back to mentor JV, especially in time to go up against Bosh tomorrow.

Although Grey actually didn't look too bad on Sunday against the Lakers, so I'd feel bad about that.

JO would be perfect here - Id love to have him mentor our bigs.

The Suns firing Gentry was just a bad move - he is not the reason that team isn't going anywhere - he's a decent coach

My understanding is that Hunter wants to use Beasley more at the four;
Which will cut into JO's minutes substantially and he sure as heck ain't happy about it.

JO: "This franchise has to be the most bush league in the Association. You guys have no class. I've played in Toronto and EVEN THAT PLACE treated us better than you guys!"

GM: "HOW DARE YOU COMPARE US WITH THE RAPTORS!"

TEAM REPORTER: "Did you hear that!? JO told him the team is worse run than the Raptors!?"

TEAM REPORTER #2: "He didn't!"

TEAM REPORTER: "He did!"

GORTAT: "Sh/t is becoming very real!"

Trade Gray for O'Neal straight up (or, as the aforementioned dream come true, JO + Wes for Bargnani). He'd be a great addition to our team working with JV and especially Ed Davis. He'd be a good pairing with Amir if healthy.
