What else is left to say after blowing huge leads in five consecutive games on top of four other times in December.

  • Steve Nash and Grant Hill admit the Suns aren't mentally tough and aren't talented enough to win without playing hard for 48 minutes.
  • Amare Stoudemire keeps saying the Suns need to figure it out.
  • Alvin Gentry and Steve Kerr have admitted they need to focus on defense to preserve leads and have and will continue to adjust the rotations to mix in more defensive oriented players.
  • David Griffin in a brief hallway exchange after the Bucks game joked that at least the TV sponsors are happy because the Suns are keeping the games close.

Since we obviously can't do anything expect bitch and moan and suggest everything from a complete blow up of the entire roster to continued patience, we've decided to contribute in the only way we know how: ridiculous attempts at positive thinking.
