Ha. Only reason I mentioned is because every board/thread I've seen people complain about his substitution pattern. I've never had a problem with it with the exception of him not always sticking to a rotation for extended periods. Seems like players never know when they are getting minutes or how many minutes. Telfair, Beasley, JO, Johnson all have had issues with this. Now I realize minutes vary depending on the game and especially on a bad team lineups are in constant flux trying to find the right mix but constant tinkering is an issue.

Once the Suns' 97-94 home loss to Dallas was over, Coach Alvin Gentry was asked if it was time to move Beasley to the bench.

"More than likely," Gentry said.

Could he do it for Saturday's game at the Los Angeles Clippers?

"Could possibly be," Gentry said.

And then Gentry went into a closed-door meeting with Suns staff and Managing Partner Robert Sarver after five consecutive losses. The problem with the timing to demote Beasley now is Thursday night's injury to P.J. Tucker. He was a candidate to replace Beasley at starting small forward but sprained the MCL in his right knee and did not return to the game. More on Tucker's availability will be learned today.

HHmm, could be coincidence. But still interest thanks for the link. Not sure how much I like our front office meddling with the coaching staffs rotations.

Immediately made me think of "The League" episode where they are talking about racist broadcasters

“Nine times out of 10 when a sportscaster refers to a head coach as a class act, he’s black.”



“Latin guys are always firecracker”



“Gym rat. Code word for a white guy”
