Meet your newest Sun...
 
STROMILE SWIFT!

Link

Discuss here what you think about the signing, what numbers he will get, his impact, his minutes, and how he will do under the Run N Gun style of play.

I am StroShow4 and I approve this thread. :pimp:

I also approve of your avy. :pimp:



Anyways, I'm not going to get my hopes up, I just hope Stro plays hard and produces in whatever minutes he is given.. if he works hard in this system there's no reason why he can't help the team and by doing that help his own reputation.

This is gotta be the second best thing the Suns did this year, signing Stro. With his athleticism, and being in this run n gun tempo, he will be great. Especially with Steve Nash manning the controls.

If we make the playoffs, imagine a running line up of Nash, J-rich, Hill/Barnes/Stro and Stoudemire. Pick and roll em to death with Amar'e then use Stro.

Can't wait to see him in action.

Well considering this organization hasn't made a single good decision in the past 2 years, that's not exactly a glowing endorsement.

Fire terry porter = good decision

Richardson + Dudley for Diaw + Bell = worked out for both teams so far since bell and diaw werent producing as well as they should have been and Richardson and Dudley have picked up their game especially since Amare went out

Shaq > Marion

Returning to Run and Gun = good decision IMO

The problem is that most of the moves you cite were made out of necessity to counteract a previous bad decision.

Terry Porter never should have been hired in the first place.
We had a very good coach here already in D'Antonio whose style matched the personnel we "had".

On a related note, we should have never changed the philosophy in the first place. You say we "returned to the run and gun". Why did we abandon it in the first place? Now we are doing it with inferior personnel and without the coach that is the best in the business at implementing it.

Diaw & Bell were very productive in the old system when D'Antonio was here. They both looked like promising players. In case you haven't noticed, the entire TEAM has been significantly less productive since this change in philosophy took place. Coincidence... I think not.

Shaq may be a better individual player than Marion, but Marion was a MUCH better fit. Marion did everything well. He could create off the dribble, shoot the 3, rebound and play defense. He was really the glue that held the team together IMO, not Nash. Most importantly he could run the floor, something very important in a "run and gun" scheme and something Shaq cannot do. Now instead of getting up and down the floor quickly in transition (something this team thrived upon when it was once good), you see us slowing it down at halfcourt and waiting for Shaq to catch up. I knew when the move happened that it would be bad for this team. You can't argue with results. This team is WORSE OF with Shaq as opposed to Marion.

All bad moves, sorry.

I was laughing because I am sure this is not the second best thing the suns did that year...
