Re: This era's over, Suns fans...
To me, letting Mike D'antoni walk was the beginning of the end. That man's coaching was underrated, and although there were obviously some deficiencies, I believe that last year, they might have been on the brink of something special, even with Shaq. The problem is that when Steve Kerr came in, he tried to be mr. Fix it. What he didn't realize was that adding a piece or two doesn't make this a half court team. In fact, bringing in more half court players and a non-run and gun coach (Porter) actually rendered a lot of our players ineffective. I completely agree that this era is over, and it's sad to see it end this way.
