Hearts of Champions
I was wrong. Really wrong. Ok, it's hard for me to admit just how wrong I was. But here it is: I take back everything I said about the Suns when D'Antoni left. Yes, I was sad. Bitter. Disappointed. Disengaged. And when nothing came together for the Suns for the last three years: Justified. But with Alvin Gentry at the helm, the Suns ignited into a fiery ball of flames--to the tune of a 4-0 sweep against their nemesis, the San Antonio Spurs.
And as amazing a player as Nash is, his game tonight was incomprehensible. To think: Nash played in an NBA playoff against some of the best players in the world with one eye swollen shut. And fired his team to a 107-101 victory.
The Suns, indeed, mean business this year.
