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…

It's "really really really nice" [Alvin Gentry Voice] to have basketball back! If you are anything like me, then you too are reading and soaking in any and everything you can about the Phoenix Suns - and with new players recently added to the roster and training camp in full swing there's a ton to soak in. But aren't you tired of hearing the same cookie cutter questions and answers time and time again?

Don't worry - I've got your back! I caught up new Suns guard Sebastian "Bassy" Telfair after the team scrimmage last night and asked the heavy-hitter questions... you know, the beefy stuff that everybody is dying to know. Here's an example.

Eutychus: "[Sebastian] Are you Team Edward... or Team Jacob?"

You've got to watch the video to find out. ENJOY - and let me know what you think of the video, or if you have better 'beefy' questions you'd like answered.



PHOENIX — The Suns brought US Airways Center to Grand Canyon University Arena Wednesday during the squad’s annual intrasquad scrimmage that broke up the monotony of training camp drills. GCU...
