Important news over the weekend was that along with the interviews given to Rockets Assistant Elston Turner, Maryvale High School Track Coach Bob Ubik, and several assistant store managers from the Starbucks on Mill, the Suns also interviewed TNT analyst Marv Albert. According to insiders, Marv appears to be the current frontrunner, at least until the next candidate is interviewed.
Marv joins a long list of Suns coaching hopefuls from the TNT booths, including NBA head coaching neophyte Mark Jackson. One intriguing candidate, Terry Bradshaw, hails from the FOX network, however.
"I've had a lot of good times with Marv and I would like to continue that," said TNT Homer and Suns GM Steve Kerr. "Many people forget that Marv actually has more NBA experience than most of the candidates we are interviewing."
"But what about NBA head coaching experience?" asked our source.
"What we really need is someone that will talk tough about defense and conduct longer practices. We have a veteran team, they know what to do." Kerr reasoned. "Besides, when I took over as the GM, my only experience was as a player and TNT analyst. And look how good I've done."
"You turned a title contender into a playoff hopeful, made several shocking trades for the worse and ran off the head coach," our source allegedly complained.
"Yeah. But I also brought Balls back into the NBA." said Kerr.
"May we call you a moron now, sir?"
