Suns Alvin Gentry fired

Quote:
Alvin Gentry has been fired as head coach of the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns have a 13-28 record as they rebuild following the departure of Steve Nash.

Gentry became interim head coach of the Suns during the 08-09 season, replacing Terry Porter.

Gentry led the Suns to the Western Conference Finals in 2010.

He spearheaded quite possibly the least desirable roster league wide. I'm actually surprised they have that many wins in the western conference. I was extremely impressed by how he maximized that Suns roster that pushed the Lakers to 6 in 2010.

Channing Frye, I hope he gets better. I like Shannon Brown too. Other then that, Phoenix can go suck it.

I don't understand this move at all. Probably the best coach that the Suns have had since Westpahl.

WTF did management expect him to do with that roster?

Seemed like a solid coach, PHX didn't have a good roster so him getting fired isn't gonna help anyone.

mehhh, they aren't THAT bad. IMO they have some talent, but they're essentially rebuilding on the fly. Dragic, Dudley, Beasley, Scola, Gortat, Marshall etc....

Kind of comparable to the Raptors. Put a shit roster out there and seem incredulous when they don't win. Dwane Casey will be Gentry in a couple more years of not winning.

I think that qualifies as a walking disaster for the NBA.

I'm pretty sure Frye is done as an athlete. An enlarged heart doesn't go away.

his was like a strange bacteria infection or some shit. Yes, he almost died, but there's still hope for a comeback.

Don't think he would go there. But I don't know him. I would've loved to see him coach for the Lakers...


How come no rumours out about him when they were in need of one?

Except unlike us they've actually had some reasonable success in the past.

Shoot, 2 years ago they were within a lucky Ron Artest rebound of pushing the Lakers to Gm. 7 in the WC Finals.
