NBA: Phoenix Suns at Atlanta Hawks Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Wait, what?!? Already?

Earl Watson got fired today by the Phoenix Suns. Dave and Greg have all the hot takes with an emergency edition of The Solar Panel.

We cover:

  • the firing
  • potential replacements
  • why it had to be now
  • Other Suns coaches who’ve been fired early in the season (none as early as three games!)
  • what interim head coach Jay Triano brings to the table that might be an improvement over Earl Watson
  • whether the Suns even have a direction that might be compromised by this coaching change
