That team is chalk full of scorers and you can only get that many assists per game?

Give me a break.

Novak, Gordon, Fred Jones. Last night, at least on two occasions Thornton was posting up and Jones was wide open, and it was obvious Al was looking at him, but instead, took a dribble and a fadeaway jumper. So annoying.

Obviously that's an effect of playing on a bad team, first of all I bet Al doesn't even think a guy like Fred Jones should be playing and if you can get a bucket why not? Hopefully this blasting on him will teach him to attack more and pass more.

Does Fred Jones even shoot 3's?

I don't remember that being apart of his game.

53% in the month of February. 40% on the season, having made 33 of them in 32 games. A decent 35.5% for his career as well.

I'd say he is our third best 3 point thread behind Novak and Gordon. And fifth at getting into the lane behind Gordon, Taylor, Baron and Mardy.

With how much Dunleavy is getting paid a year(about 7 mil I believe), firing him would be a mistake. We would bring in a crappy coach, such as Alvin Gentry, and have a crappy GM. Sterling isn't paying that much to Dun and paying another 7 mil for a new coach/GM.

If anything, Andy Roeser needs to be fired(teams president of basketball operations) and get a new training/medical staff.

Fred Jones is one of few NBA players I don't remember much about.

I never paid any attention to his game or skills.

Only 40%? 40% from the three is pretty damn good if you ask me.

He has shown it thus far.

I always liked Fred. I think it was the dunk contest, but he has impressed me with his shot and ball handling skills. His defense isn't half bad either.

There is something wrong with using money? Do you want to win or not? Dunleavy is just not the right coach for this team. And if possible we can keep Dunleavy at the GM spot if he is willing too.

Of course there isn't, but with DTS' track record, you think he's going to dish out 14 mil annually? I don't. Hell, I don't even see him dishing out 10 mil annually, so what GM/Coach will we get for 3 mil? Not a very good one.

Dunleavy sticking at GM will be even worse, unless, he himself steps down as the coach, which I don't see happening with his ego. But if Donald just fires him as coach and keeps him as GM, he will be all over the Coach.

Best case scenario would be Dun stepping down as Coach, Kim Hughes taking over and adding Mobley and Cassell to the coaching staff..

why the hell is he backing Mike Dunleavy? That dude is an AWFUL coach.

I remember the game where the Clips had the Suns on the ropes in the playoffs with the chance to go up 3-2 going home as long as they held a 3 point lead in the closing seconds of OT. What does Dunderhead do? He puts in rookie Daniel Ewing for Sam Cassell, who had only played 5 minutes in all 9 of their previous playoff games and had yet to set foot on the floor in this game, to cover Raja Bell. Guess who hits the 3 to send it to a second OT and eventual Suns win?
