I forgot to mention Kurt Rambis

My Phoenix Suns fanaticism peaked in 92-93. Since then, every time a major backbone of the organization leaves, I like them a little less. Think: Cotton Fitzsimmons, Paul Westphal, Jeff Hornacek, Tom Chambers, Dan Majerle, KJ, Danny Ainge, Sir Charles. Those are the oldies but goodies. I didn't follow the team for a while, so I don't care much about losing Scott Skiles, Anfernee Hardaway or other early-00's Suns.

But I care again and I really am sad about losing Mike D'Antoni.

Suns stock just fell yet again, in my view.

Why does the Suns stock lose value...the Suns didn't ask him to leave, they asked him to make a few minor changes (actually talk about D during practics, etc.) and he asked for permission to seek employment elsewhere. They wanted him back! I must admit though, I am *hugely* down on Sarver as an owner, if not for his bottom-line approach to running a sports team, I truly believe the Suns would have at least one title if not more...

P.S. Did you know that you were the one that broke the Suns-Knicks brawl news to me?

I'm sad about D'Antoni too. But that won't keep me from watching the Suns play.
