Horrible interview skills/assh*le tendencies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56GL0ayF9Fs
Underserved large contract
In summary, the bad outweighs the good, but the Suns like his predecessors (Spurs, Kings, Magic) have enough talent to where he will probably help more than hurt. The Suns sure won't be 3rd in the West, but they will probably at least be a lower playoff seed. That said we are ecstatic to get rid of his ass. Hopefully after the first month he won't be complaining about it being a different system than he had in Orlando and that he doesn't get the ball enough with Nash at the point.
I can see why you guys don't like him but we have a unselfish crop of guys and our staff / trainers have something special about them that rejuvenates all these disgruntled, older players. For reference, see O'Neal and Hill. I'm optimistic about the trade since we get another ball handler and a mismatch. And our defense or rebounding don't suffer a great deal. We got the conference finals with Amare grabbed around 6 boards / game. I don't see it as a major problem. Hopefully, he fits in well and stays at the top of his game.
