We interrupt Steve Nash Internet Day to share this fun little story from Suns practice.

As I was standing with the collected media (all four of us) talking to Coach Gentry after Suns practice today our friend and local 7ft hot head stormed off the court after a game of 3 on 3 with the other bench players, walked up the stairs and flung open the glass door shown below.

Said door proceeded to yield to Robin's fury and shattered its glass all over the landing and the court below.

Needless to say, Coach Gentry was not a happy camper. While I suppose that technically what he said next can be considered "on the record", I will take the easy road and not repeat his words. Let's just say we can expect Robin to a) pay for the door b) not suit up tomorrow c) get quite an earful and d) be referred to Anger Management Classes.

Actually, I am not so sure about the last one but it might not be a bad idea.

Here's the audio. That sound you hear is Robin's reputation splintering into thousands of tiny pieces. Stay frosty.
