Rejoice Suns Fans
 
Lots of Suns Fans are going to laugh at this, espcially if the Lakers and Steve Nash fail to win an NBA title in the future.

The Los Angeles Lakers, in a surprising move, announced Monday morning that they have signed former Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni to replace Mike Brown as head coach.

Was there nobody better to hire? I still can't stop laughing at this. D'Antoni was everything wrong with the Phoenix Suns. I would have liked to see a Gentry ran team when we had Amare. D'Antoni has proven himself to be one of the worst coaches in the league. I can only hope the Lakers continue to not play well.

It will be interesting to see what happens now though, will Nash be called upon to do what he has always done, and how will Kobe react to that? Kobe likes the ball in his hands, obviously.

Kobe does like D'Antoni. However, Phil Jackson was the frontrunner and is surprised that he wasn't picked for the job. From my standpoint, I would have given what Jackson wanted even though he was asking for a limited number of away games to attend. Oh well! It is what it is.

Oh boy, hope he is a good fit or else not hiring Phil will come back to haunt them. Because you know if they later fired Dantoni that nowhere in hell would Phil ever consider coming back to them.

At least the Lakers have something resembling a team. Sarver destroyed his own investment, and with it most of the interest in basketball in the valley.

^ True.

My mom has been a die hard Suns fan since the mid eighties. She had season tickets since the early nineties until the recent labor dispute. I don't think she's watched a single game since. It was combination of several things but the combo of Sarver, the labor dispute and some issues in life was enough to make her decide that she no longer cares about the Suns.

I'm not sure why any suns fan would be rejoicing right about now. Just another shot in the guy, if you ask me. No more loyalties in the games anymore.

I read where the Suns thought OKC's price for Harden was more than they were willing to pay. What combination of players from that roster would have been too much for the Suns to give up? That crap roster? They had the extra picks from the Nash trade so that shouldn't have been a problem. I'd bet the farm that Sarver didn't want to pay the contract Houston paid and that's why they didn't trade for him. I rarely if ever watch basketball anymore. Sarver keeps me from gaining interest any time in the near future even without hockey.

Suns won't pay for anyone, it's insane! Last night's game was brutal. They said attendance was 14k on the ESPN site, but I just don't believe that for a minute.

Last night the courtside seats were primarily military personnel. Good gesture by those that actually gave up their seats for the night to allow them to sit there.

These guys have it down.

To XX's point, not only is it amazing that a team so entrenched as the Suns have so little interest in the valley right now; but also just how fast Sarver managed to tank the product. Truly a masterful job.
