Christian Petersen

We can always count on Steve Nash to provide a unique and honest perspective. Here's what he had to say about Gentry's removal as the Suns head coach.

Here's the quotes from Steve Nash and Mike D'Antoni today via the awesome Lakers reporter(s), The Kamenetzky Brothers:

Said Nash:

"Obviously I'm sad for Alvin, but in some ways, maybe this is a good thing for him. He's a great coach. A really good coach, and any club would be lucky to have him, that's for sure. He'll land on his feet, because he can really do a good job."

"I think the writing's been on the wall. It just looks like it to me. They wouldn't extend his contract. They just gave him the year to just kind of play it out. It looked like they wanted to get their own guy in there."

Said D'Antoni:

"He's a good coach. Now, a coach getting fired is not news, and you hate it for a friend, and you hate it that a guy does a great job and it definitely wasn't the coaching that they were losing. But that's our business, and you go on. (But) I hate it for him."
