PHOENIX – Sebastian Telfair left Abraham Lincoln High School as arguably the top point guard prospect in the nation. He was selected 13th in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers ahead of...

Steve Nash and Grant Hill to be benched on Back-to-Back-to-Backs

It almost goes without saying that if the Phoenix Suns are playing three days in a row, veterans Nash and Hill would be sitting out the second game at the least. There are only two B2B2B games this season so I don't see that as a huge problem. What's more worrisome is the 18 B2Bs they have to play.

via Coro: "The Suns twice have games on three consecutive nights this season. Gentry said he would consider sitting out Steve Nash and Grant Hill for one of those games, especially because each of those sets are part of five games in seven days with travel."

A Few Good Players
Sadly adapted from the Aaron Sorkin screenplay

******************************************************************************************************************************

Sarver: You want players?
Sun’s Fans: We think we’re entitled to them.
Sarver: You want players?
Sun’s Fans: We want the talent!


Sarver: You can't handle the talent! Boys and girls, we live in a world that has David Stern. And Stern says the talent has to be guarded by agents with bargaining power and 2 hour “decision” specials. Who's gonna guard it? You? Rosterbation Nation? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Stoudemire and you curse Vince Carter. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that STAT’s departure, while tragic, probably saved you from shooting yourself in the head after another Suns’ failed playoff run. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves heartbreak, pain, and excessive alcoholism...You don't want the talent. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about on BSOTS, you want Stern making arbitrary decisions regarding the few good players. You need men like Stern and me in your world!


We use words like salary cap, trade exemption, free agency, and revenue sharing...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent plundering small-market teams’ talent to prop-up the major markets. You use 'em as a punchline on sports blogs. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to rabble that rise and sleep watching a basketball team that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pack up your bags, move to Sacramento and cheer for the Kings. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

Sun’s Fans: Did you order the Sun’s mediocrity?!?
Sarver: (quietly) I did the job Stern sent me to do.
Sun’s Fans: Did you order the Sun’s mediocrity?
Sarver: You're goddamn right I did!!

(pause)

Sun’s Fans: Does this mean we aren’t getting Dwight Howard at the trade deadline?
Sarver: Damn Skippy…
