Worried about the Suns this year? The Arizona Republic, October 1,2019, photo of Devin Booker on opening day of camp, tells you all you need to know.
The Suns’ talking point this year is “time to rise”. Let’s all hope it is time to rise and shine. I am pulling for Coach Igor. I hope he really does well in his first Head Coaching job. Like many of the Phoenix Suns fans, I am tired of watching this nonsense of the last five years.
We’re back. New software, new puppy, Maggie, 8 month goldendoddle, and getting ready for the new NBA season. In 2016, the Sacramento Kings traded Marquese Chriss, the number eight pick in the first round (a local kid) to the Phoenix Suns. At that time, I pointed out that in his first year at the University of […]
The Milwaukee Bucks are going to interview a woman, Becky Hammon for their coaching position. She is an ex WNBA Player and longtime Assistant Coach in San Antonio. My first thought was with all the good paying jobs in college and the WNBA, why the hell would she want to coach in the NBA?

When winning, particularly play-off games, meant a bigger paycheck,after games we did not hug each other. Coaches frowned upon even talking to opponents in pre-game warm ups. So, when after the last two games of the Utah-OKC series, players walked off the floor without hugging each other, I loved it.
Playoff match ups are set in the Eastern NBA Conference. The team from Canada, the Toronto Raptors, are in first place with the best record in the National Basketball Association. How about that?
Most people would agree that the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Denver Nuggets game Wednesday, was a well played game and enjoyable to watch. When a game is played the way it should be played, it is also officiated well. There is no question, well played games are well officiated.
Mr. Research has been gone since April 2017 and I really miss him. So, every once in a while, I will share with you one of his research finds: “I am reminded about Bob Knight’s perhaps apocryphal reply to one of his Hoosiers when the lad told the coach the team win if God willed […]
