Gentry says Suns need more confidence, Gortat disagrees

Here's some postgame video featuring Suns coach Alvin Gentry and center Marcin Gortat on Sunday after the team's loss to the New York Knicks. The two men weren't on the same page when it came to describing the slow starts the team seems to suffer...except they kind of were.

Well now, this is interesting (sort of). If you watch the Gentry video you will see the coach at the beginning rightly place blame on the nine first quarter turnovers. Each starter had two except for Shannon Brown who escaped with just one turnover -- but he only played four minutes.

At the end of the video Mr. Paul Coro (AZ Republic beat writer) asked Gentry WHY the team was starting slow. Gentry said they weren't focused and needed to come out with more confidence.

In the next video (below), you will see Mr. Coro ask Marcin Gortat if he agrees with Gentry's confidence prognosis.

"I wouldn't say, specifically, it was a game without confidence. I would say we didn't go out to have fun. We didn't go out to play together and we just didn't enjoy being out there," Gortat said.

He went on to talk about the lack of Suns swagger, which apparently is different than having confidence.
