You want a coach that you can really hug and hold and high five and really have fun with. That makes it fun play. You can high five and hug your team mates. You don't want to have fear of your coach. You want to be respectable with him but you also want to be a friend with him."
Coach Gentry is definitely a personable and likable guy but he's also got an old school streak in him. I look forward to seeing if he can use this balance to motivate Amare with hugs and high fives but also get on his ass when it's deserved.
How Amare performs for his fourth coach in his seven year career will be the key not only to the Suns season but perhaps the next 4 to 6 years for the franchise.
