As the Kerr Hate Grows...

...I would like to offer up a one small morsel of food for thought.

I find it interesting that the bench has been praised lately and the starters berated as to their respective efforts. You do realize that Kerr is responsible for just about everyone on the bench, right? Dragic, Amundson, Dudley, Swift, and Lopez...yup, all Kerr's guys, and all guys, who certainly, if not stars on the NBA level, have played with the heart and hustle that stars at the NBA level should play with. And that all-heart-and-passion guy the Suns have right now, who hasn't mailed in one game this season - that Hill guy or something like that - he's Kerr's guy too, isn't he? Forgive Steve for trying to build a franchise out of hard-working players that uses a model like the Spurs. As much as we hate them, and God knows, I HATE THEM, they truly a model franchise. If Amare had been brought up under Popovich's tutelage as opposed to D' Antoni's, there is no question that he would be approaching (not quite on) but very close to Duncan/Garnett level. He's that gifted talent-wise. Unfortunately, he grew up under a coach that didn't stress defense or discipline whatsoever. There's a reason the most popular saying in the game is "defense wins championships." And if Suns fans haven't learned this lesson over the last four years, continuing only to clamor for the former days of old, there is another saying that would aptly describe our future outlook: "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

My point is, certainly all of Kerr's moves haven't worked out yet, and some, like his hiring of Porter, were downright blunders. But quit attacking him because he took away our fun-lovin, runnin-and-gunnin Suns that were "this close" to a title. Steve Kerr is just as classy as the other Steve in the Suns' organization, and just as smart too. Give him some time, and I'm sure that this Suns team will be a disciplined one that is fun to watch as well.

 

Sarver, on the other hand, is someone I love to rip on. In my mind, he is cheap and meddling, and would rather produce a monetary profit as opposed to a successful NBA team. But as I've learned from all the armchair GMs on this board that love to bash on Kerr, few, if any, of us fans are fit or intellgent enough to run an NBA franchise. I'm willing to cut them both a little more slack.
