The Playoffs are here and the high-seeded Phoenix Suns are losing to a lower-seeded team. Gee, what a surprise.
The 3rd seed Suns dropped their first game at home against the 6th seed Blazers who are missing their best player in Brandon Roy, not to mention Greg Oden, Joel Pryzbilla, Bill Walton and Jerome Kersey.
Why do I feel like I’ve seen this movie before? The Suns have a great season and show up in the Playoffs only to have their asses handed to them by a team that plays defense.
And without the injured Robin Lopez, the Suns are small and soft. Every time the broadcast cut to their bench, I kept wondering why assistant coaches Bill Cartwright and Dan Majerle didn’t just suit up and get in the game. They’re both around the same age as Juwan Howard and Grant Hill, aren’t they?
Steve Nash is a great, Hall Of Fame player and he has had a fantastic, eye-opening season, but watching him play defense is like watching your grandparents fuck: it’s disgusting, you worry someone’s going to get hurt, and you can’t help but feel like you could do it better.
Thank you… Goodnight!
