    Huh? Well I'm not mad, just didn't expect the pick so soon.

    Well atleast we won't have to worry about a slow offense, as one of the writers tweeted(M.P)

    WE WILL BE ENTERTAINED. lol....

    yeah I´m okay with that, would have preffered JVG but if he will bring good defensive assistants with him we will be fine!

    People are overrating JVG. He was an average coach in Houston. Had two of the best players in the league when healthy and could never lead them out of the first round.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Was really hoping for JVG or Messina. If GS did not have the success they had this year Gentry would not be in the picture...will hope for the best though.

    He was a huge reason for their success.

    I'm excited it's done now. Wasn't my first choice but I'll support him just like my first choice. If people want to complain go ahead but just know that Davis had a lot of say so in who our next coach is. I wouldn't doubt if he even sat in on the 2nd meeting we had with Gentry. If we can hire someone like Mike Malone this will be a home run but either way I'm sure we get the top defensive guy available.

    awesome
    Alvin Gentry was my second choice after Hoiberg.
    Glad Thibs or JVG isn’t our coach.

    Maybe we can pull something off and bring in Draymond Green. Him and Davis would be the best and most versatile front court in the NBA.

    Possible if we trade Ryno and Tyreke. I doubt Gordon will be moved.

    Don't see how Evans fits with Golden St.

    Not thrilled by this hire. I'm not really a big fan of the retread culture in the NBA. Either congrats and good luck to coach Gentry. Seems like a class guy if nothing else.

    Nothing more to say, 1 remarkable season of 12 seasons, 2 times fired (Suns at 12-13, Clippers at 02-03). I saw the Suns at 10-11, 11-12 and 12-13 and i remember that i saw a very good offensive team but in defense was awful, any team with physical players destroy the Suns of these seasons with Gentry.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED with Gentry as head coach.

    Dell loves Tyreke he's his only real FA signing and was a huge reason we made the playoffs. I doubt he is going anywhere. When Dell talks about his core he is saying Jrue, AD, and Tyreke those 3 are the least likely to be traded imo.



    1-6

    Those Suns teams you are mentioning had no defensive players. Kerr left after the Conference Finals season because he knew how terrible the owner is and the new guys made some awful signings/trades. Look at the roster on those teams. It will speak for itself.

    I am happy with this hire. Should be the end of stagnat offense.
    I'm a grinder

    We had the 8th offense with a near bottom pace, Tyreke dribbling for 14 seconds before initating offense, and Monty as the HC. I fully expect a top 3 offense with Gentry.

    Keep in mind Brian Shaw was at the GS workout TODAY talking with Gentry. Let's see how our defense does next year.

    Does this mean that Stephen A. Smith can get off his "firing a black coach" high horse?

    Um, GS is going to win the NBA championship this yr. People evolve. Smart people insert things that work into their arsenal. I'm assuming Gentry is smart enough to learn that what they did in Oakland works, right?
    And your 12 seasons thoery really holds no water. He was a head coach for an 82 game season 4 times. 2 of those w/ a HORRIBLE Clippers organization & 2 w/Phx. 54 wins one season & Stoudamire shananigans in the 40 win season! 1st 3 yrs were like a condensed blur! I'm going to give the guy a shot! With what he did with a full Phx team, along w/ what he has learned the past 2 seasons w/ Kerr & Rivers! What the heck.

    since i saw the Suns of 10-12,11-12... i don't like Gentry. Only this.

    I hope that in the press conference and with his character, comments.... at least convince me to trust him .
