The minute I heard the Phoenix Suns had made yet another clear-the-cupboard, shake-the-Etch-a-Sketch, let’s-try-this-again trade on Friday, I thought about my nephew Jake.
Superman had hardly cleared Hollywood airspace before the rumors of the next Los Angeles Lakers superstar acquisitions began. And as always, the dreams are as big as California:
“The NRA proposes putting a school official through 60 hours of weapons of training for school security. There is an old adage that says (A Jack of all trades is master of none). Does anyone really want to put the life of their small child in the hands of a master of none?”
For Suns fans, rooting against the Lakers has never been so much fun.
Amare Stoudemire’s right knee, the microfracture knee, the knee we all know would surely bring a premature end to one of the most exciting NBA talents in this millennium, is now waving a white flag.
The old adage is that coaches are hired to be fired. Alvin Gentry has been a class individual, coach and a credit to his profession. The Suns are in a very bad place right now.
Don’t cry for Alvin Gentry. The time when he needed your sympathy has already passed.
Within the annals of a dentist-turned-35-year-high-school-basketball coaching career, here are a few things more important to Highland girls coach Miner Webster than his descent upon win No. 700 (in no particular order):
Am I the only one who’s waiting to see if Arizona running back Beanie Wells writes his home phone number and email address on the back of his helmet for today’s 49ers game? Perhaps he can put it right over the Cardinals logo, since that doesn’t mean anything to him anymore.
A lot of people like to make predictions on what is going to happen. Too few of us take responsibility for their successes and, yes, their failures. Here is what I forecast on December 23, 2011 followed by what actually happened and my report card:
The Suns have dubbed their Dec. 6 game against Dallas as “Satisfaction Guarantee Night.” If you don’t have a great time watching Phoenix attempt like the dickens to beat the Mavericks, you can simply saunter up to the ticket window and ask for your money back.
Lakers fans had to be overjoyed this summer when Steve Nash and Dwight Howard were air-dropped into Hollywood from heaven, ostensibly putting Kobe Bryant back on track to collect more jewelry.
New Suns forward Michael Beasley is among several newcomers eager to begin the post-Steve Nash era, though external expectations for Phoenix remain low for the 2012-2013 season, which begins this week.
Riding in on a dark desert highway and cool wind in his now slightly thinner hair, the former Eagle who wrote the music to one of Rock’N’Roll’s most iconic songs — “Hotel California” — is swooping into Casino Arizona at Talking Stick Resort for a concert 8 p.m. Friday.
There is no denying Kobe Bryant is a great basketball player. And there’s no deny that nobody knows that better than Kobe Bryant. When it comes to an opinion of oneself in the pecking order of NBA royalty, Kobe makes Michael Jordan look like a self-deprecator. (“What? Me, great? Aw, shucks …”)
Entering his second year in the NBA, the Suns are counting on a more versatile Markieff Morris to help an offense full of question marks following the departure of point guard Steve Nash.
We’ve had athletes come to Arizona for the money when the Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks were free-spending franchises bent on building fantasy teams.
Enjoy that Rattlers championship. Revel in Diana Taurasi’s gold medal and the fact that temperatures will plunge into the mid-90s, Arizona sports fans.
So what’s new in the NBA? Absolutely nothing.
Steve Nash: gone. Grant Hill: gone. Phoenix Suns fans feel the emotional attachment to the oldest and, historically, most popular professional sports team is heading in the same direction.
Reports of the demise of the Phoenix Coyotes remain greatly exaggerated — for now.
“I think we should boycott the Olympics. They should be wearing things made in United States not in China or any other country than the United States. Also do not donate to the Olympics.”
“Why are people surprised about Steve Nash spitting in the face of his Sun’s fans? He spit in the face of all Arizonians when he went on National Television back in May, 2010. He said ‘I think the law (SB 1070) obviously can target opportunities for racial profiling.’ Which just showed the low esteem he had for the professionalism of Arizona’s law enforcement agencies across the state. ‘Good riddence to bad rubbish’ was a true statement years ago and is just as true today.”
“I think it is laughable that Romney thinks all his Republicans are going to vote for him. Now that President Obama has secured the health insurance, who in their right mind would vote away Medicare or Social Security? Plus, I want the Republicans to know that this is not a gift; we workers paid our share.”
