I’m sure by now, you’ve heard the Phoenix Suns have fired Head Coach Alvin Gentry. They said it was mutually decided, eufemisms. Former NBA player Lindsey Hunter is a possible candidate for the job. What mindboggles me, is the fact they haven’t got a replacement coach ready. I think it would be normal to decide who’s going to be your replacement coach and second to actually fire the guy. Now, Phoenix is in a bigger mess than before. Good job!
In a Friday loss to the Brooklyn Nets, the Atlanta Hawks lost Lou Williams for the season. The former 6th Man Of The Year suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and he’ll miss the remainder of the season. Bad news for the recent struggling Hawks. Williams was third in in scoring for Atlanta.
In a win against the Washington Wizard, Chris Paul returned to the line-up. Paul was sidelined because of a bruised kneecap. In his return, he was showered with MVP chants. Which he absolutely deserves.
Washington looks rejuvenated with the return of John Wall. It seems Wall isn’t going to be satisfied with the current record. He looks healthy, but it’s clear, he stills needs some more games to get in top shape. I’m curious if the duo Beal – Wall will work out and if Washington will have a future with this backcourt.
With the trade deadline approaching, the topic of Rudy Gay is very much talked about. The players are against any trade whatsoever involving their nucleos and they’re very public about it. There have been multiple suggestions on Twitter by various NBA reporters to trade Gay for Pierce. But the Celtics trading the loyal Pierce seems very unlikely to me.
For his 31th birthday, Dwyane Wade received a frikkin’ McLaren. I now have very high expectations regarding gifts for my future birthdays.
It seems Indiana’s Paul George is enjoying his breakout season. The last 10 games, George is averaging 20, 10 and 4, conforming his top spot amongst NBA Small Forwards. It seems he’s improving every week, it’ll be an adjustement though when Granger comes back.
