IGOR KOKOSKOV

I like Coach Kokoskov.  I think after paying his dues as an Assistant Coach, he deserves a shot as the Head Coach. You may remember, he was the Assistant Coach with the Suns from 2008-2013 and probably had a lot to do with the acquisition of Goran Dragic. So my question is in 2013 Suns […]

NBA SUMMER LEAGUE

The NBA Summer League recently ended with a few things self evident; Lonzo Ball has a chance to be a special player and his Daddy is no dummy.  His son has not played one NBA regular season game and he is already a household word.   One TV Analyst said it was the “golden age of […]

Tanking — or Dumping?

Today, it is called “tanking.” In the early 1950s, we had an enormous point-shaving, or “dumping,” scandal involving a dozen major colleges in New York City and around the country.
