Steve Kerr - Full transcript available @ Suns.com

  • Not going to promise anyone they are staying or going
  • Amare understands that as do all our players
  • Anyone can get traded - doesn't mean everyone is accessible but you don't know what's going to come up
  • We are under performing and not playing up to our capabilities
  • Lack of defensive improvement is the biggest disappointment
  • We haven't been consistent
  • Talked to Amare - he understands this is the nature of our business
  • I've gotten a lot of calls
  • I am not going to go into detail about what's gone wrong but we've not clicked yet and are still searching for that

Amare Stoudemire

  • Me being one of the leaders and an all star you can put it on me but I am not one of the Captains. You can't put too much blame on me. It's not my job to rally the troops
  • Kerr said anyone can be traded: me, Steve or Shaq
  • Right now I feel it's more me
  • I have cherished the moments here (in Phoenix), I would love to stay here but you never know what happens
  • It's more of a business move then anything else
  • I know where ever I go we are going to be playoff contenders

Steve Nash

  • I love playing here, I want to see it work out here
  • I apologize to the fans - it's killing me and it's really hurting the fans
  • I hear things second and third hand
  • I don't care what people are saying out there (about Nash possbily being traded)
  • I am only worried about us playing hard and playing together. I wouldn't care if we lost every game for the rest of the season if we played hard and with committment
  • If we did that we would win our share of games
  • Might as well back us into a corner and let us try and fight our way out of it
