Coaches Notes:

  • Coach Bower talked about the need to get the ball to David West. He's been playing well lately and lets be honest, they don't have a lot of options
  • Chris Paul was on the court warming up. Bower said he will play again this season. He's at the stage where he's getting back to running on the floor. The next step is for him to get back on the court
  • Bower talked about the improvements in the Suns half court execution (glad I'm not the only one seeing it)
  • Gentry is obviously rooting for Kansas to go all the way. He was on Larry Browns staff in 1988 when they won the National Championship. Gentry pointed out that his team at the time was the lowest seed to win (7th seed). Gentry talked about the depth that Kansas has along with the combination of a point guard, shooters, and size
  • He also likes Syracuse and West Virginia
  • Gentry called Evan Turner the best player in the country and compared him to Brandon Roy but with better handle. He said John Wall is amazing as well and will do even better at the pro level with more spacing on the floor
  • Gentry is impressed with Darren Collison and said he could be in the running for ROY. He called Marcus Thorton and instant offense / Vinny Johnson type who knows how to score the ball
  • Asked about Jarron Collins, Gentry praised him as a "pros's pro" who always keeps himself ready and has always performed when asked. Gentry said in the playoffs you can't have too many bigs

  • I forgot that Gentry said Leandro will play on Tuesday against Minnesota (aka Tuckers Return!)
  • Coro reported that the league upgraded Pau's hit on Lou to a Flagrant 1
