PHX has 5 assists on 48 points mid way through the 3rd quarter.  I've seen a few of their games this year and it's like they're using Goran Dragic almost more as a SG most of the time. Not only that, but it seems Gentry is committed to making as many of his skilled players as unhappy as possible at the expense of dinosaurs like Jermaine O'Neal - who has been playing well - but is one more knee bump away from retirement.  Also, it seems like the few wins they somehow accomplished that I caught on NBA-LP were the results of just solid individual play with no sort of teamwork or offensive (or defensive really) game plan.  

Somethings gotta give, they're getting beat badly by DET and I just don't see them continuing to play this way, even though they're 7-8 they beat CLE x2, POR who have blown, CHA, DET & NO w/o Davis.  Once they play some real talent they're just going to keep losing.  So what I wanted to know (esp if there are any Suns fans out there) is:
1. Will they fire Gentry and/or should they??
2. Fantasy self-interest aside, who do you think they should be starting??
3. Do you think they're trying to trade any of their guys or is the constant change in starting line-up to mix it up??
4. Even with them using him terribly he's still putting up great #s but will they start using Dragic properly as a TRUE PG??
How'd you get the beans above the frank!?

they are in rebuild mode now, or at least they should be.

Other then Dragic/Scola/Gortat, the rest of the guys on their team should be bench players.  Apparently, Gortat wants out, so they'll probably ship him.  They should showcase him now and get some young talent for him.  If they have 3 picks in the top 25 next year, they will be a force in the future.

as of now, just put an entertaining product on the floor ala Warriors, and wait for 3 years to get some talent.

Stuckey looks a bit more assertive though.  Even so, don't think that will affect Singler's rotation.

Let Drummond loose please!

He's going to be a huge liabilty on offense with his horrible FT's though.....that form, omg.  It looks worse than Shaq's.

Fire Gentry, play Dragic and Gortat more.  Trading Beasley wouldn't hurt although I'm sure no one wants him.

Saw only the first quarter. What happened with Dragic? 16 minutes?! Is he hurt?

This really sucks. Both Brown and Beasley should not be starting, they're both shoot first guys who don't play defense and don't pass. They're not really rotation worthy on a good team and PJ Tucker or Dudley should be starting(or both). I'm not sure if Gentry will go anytime soon because their record isn't terrible yet considering the overall lack of talent there

I think Goran is. They're using him all wrong tho. He consistently puts up 15 + pts, when he gets the minutes of course...
He needs to move back to more of his pass first ways...

get outta here. Dragic is averaging 16ppg-7apg-2.1 steals-1.7 3ptm on the season. How do you figure thats not start worthy? I'd love to hear this explanation.
