See what a GREAT point guard like Steve Nash can do. He made his fellow Suns look outstanding in the clutch.

The Cavs just couldn't hold onto their lead. They need that point guard to compete with the likes of the Suns.

No wonder LeBoob kicked over the garbage can on his way down the hall off the court after the loss. He's frustrated by cheap a$$ Ferry's lack of attention to the point guard needs.

Why is almost every paragraph one sentence long?

It is "shabby" to lose a game by reverting in the fourth quarter to the "Dribble" offense. How can a team move away from passing, movement and proper spacing that got them a big lead in the 1st half?

Tough, tough loss. They had the Suns beat, but then they started trying to beat them at their own game, which doesn't work. The Suns are a bunch of soft-ass whining punks.....all they know how to do is throw up 3-pointer after 3-pointer. You gotta contest those outside shots and try to make them go inside on you. Amare Stoudamire can't beat you by himself.

Yeah, Amare can! I have seen it over and over the past 3 years. When teams sag down on Amare, like the Cavs last night, it opens up all the 3-pointers. When teams chose to cover the 3pt line, Nash and Amare or Marion play the pick and roll and the Suns get 50-75 points in the paint. Chose your poison! That is what makes the Suns so good. That just play what the other team gives them.

BTW, while I may agree with you on the Suns being soft-ass (on defense), the "whining punks" is a bit much considering the various problems they have had thrust upon them.

How have the Suns done in the playoffs the last few years? Have they even made the NBA Finals?

You're a disgrace to Akron. If you hate the Cavs, then get out of here.
