Default Re: Alvin Gentry and the Suns agree to part ways

He's a good coach for a team that has a lot of mature players and veteran leadership within the player roster, as he seems to let veteran leader players have more control over what happens on the court than most coaches. Like... he was the perfect coach for a Steve Nash led team, because he let Steve practically be the co-coach of the team. But for a young team with chemistry issues that's struggling to find an identity, he just doesn't have the command and dicipline to keep the players in check and working to their strengths. He is also often a poor decision maker in the clutch, often letting other teams make 10-0+ runs on the Suns before calling a time-out to try to ease the pain.
