Can’t say I’m surprised by this, even though I do not fully blame Coach Gentry. The Suns announced a short time ago they were going to part ways with Alvin Gentry, which is usually the nice professional way to say they were going to fire him. He was 158-144 since he took over during the 2008-2009 season. Considering they play in the tougher western conference, that record is actually decent. But this year they have the worst record in the west at 13-28. Things have been dismal all year for the suns, partly because they just do not have much talent. I am sure Gentry will get another head coaching chance down the road somewhere. But for whoever takes over for the Suns for the rest of this season it is definitely going to be an uphill battle.
