    Booker needs some rest. It was a bad idea to start him at PG.

    I'm starting to question McDonough already and I have given him a free pass based upon a learning curve.

    This upcoming draft is crucial. I think the Suns should reevaluate their scouting.

    He doesn't deserve another draft. Five years, three coaches, one GREAT pick, one solid pick, too many questionable picks and trades, 0 FA difference makers even when flush with cap space... 0 playoff appearances, with the team seemingly trending down EVERY YEAR.

    That's his resume. It sucks. Bring in a new GM, along with a new scouting team and new Head Coach. It's simple. If the team gave a damn about winning, it would realize the McD era was a colossal failure and we need to start over.

    I think it's time to start looking at McDonough to produce now. Sarver will likely give him a pass through this summer but I'm not sure it is a wise move. The Suns have all these assets to use. Using them incorrectly would doom the franchise.

    Hopefully McDonough has learned. The Suns might have been able to get a better trade for Bledsoe but I think it was the right move to trade him.

    The GM has to be smarter than the fans.

    I think it’s idiotic to let McD pick a THIRD coach and make the pick that will determine the future of the franchise.

    He’s failed with two completely different coaching staffs, with all lotto picks and cap room to improve. The Suns shouldn’t be a 3rd time’s the charm franchise unless they’re content being a joke in the league.

    Too much on the line this summer to let a complete failure chart our course for the next three to five years.

    I need to watch Warren's defense closer in the new few games. I thought he did an amazing job defensively tonight, especially when matched up against Paul. He also did a nice job when he ended up on Nene in the low post.

    Bender and Chriss... I don't even know what to say. I know they are both youngsters, but I really wish they would show up a little bit more. If I were Triano, I'd tell bender I want him to take ten shots every game. If he doesn't, he will spend the next game on the bench. He can play if he gets ten rebounds, though. As for Chriss, I don't even know what I would do.

    I really like Cannan. I hope the Suns keep him as a backup PG.

    Certainly cannot argue the point. I just think it is not going to happen. Definitely would support a change if someone better were to be brought onboard.

    However, like Kerr, I think McDonough will be good later on.

    I'd like to know the scout that identified Dragic. The Suns miss scouts like Dick Percudani.

    Sarver needs to pay the money for a real head coach. He could give advice to McDonough. Hope it happens before the draft.

    Kerr got the Suns to the WCF in his second year after a rocky first year... before quitting. Don’t really see the comparison.

    Kerr did the Kurt Thomas trade and the Suns had talent not to mention a decent head coach in D'Antoni or was that Gentry.

    Kerr completely rebuilt THE ENTIRE team around Amare and Nash. Literally, the entire team bringing in JRich, Dudley, Lopez, Dragic, Frye... even Lou Freaking Admundson who contributed. Then was smart enough to get rid of his mistake with Porter and bring on Gentry putting all the pieces together to take the team from out of the playoffs to FINALLY being able to SWEEP the Spurs and put up a hell of a fight against the Lakers in the WCF in one year.

    That’s what happened his second year. Again, McD has done nothing to show he merits comparisons to Kerr, who recognized mistake, swiftly made up for them and had us go from in the late lottery to challenging for a title in one year.

    I'd be a lot more interested in getting rid of McD if I had any confidence in Sarver hiring someone better.

    Buddy Heild, Sabonis and Lauri would look really good on this team instead of Bender, Chriss and Jackson ugh.
