While it would be easy to look at P.J. Tucker’s statistics through the first three games of this current six-game road trip and assume he’s been struggling, the production of some players can’t be defined by a boxscore. [Read more...]
Suns Head Coach Alvin Gentry stopped by the Burns and Gambo Show to talk about the team’s long road trip and how his club is progressing.
When a player is signed during free agency, all that anyone can hope for is that the player lives up to his expectations. For a coaching staff or a front office, the dream scenario would be if the player were to have a career year.
With that being the case, it appears that Suns point guard Goran Dragic has been a dream signing.

It’s a little known fact what is P.J. in P.J. Tucker stands for. That’s because Tucker’s real first name is Anthony: named after his dad. So why aren’t his initials A.J.?
His father, a baseball player, was known for the pop in his bat and thus got the moniker, Pop. That’s how the Suns forward wound up with the nickname Pops Jr., or P.J. for short.
It’s funny because pop is exactly what Tucker has provided the Suns off the bench all season long. His energy and effort have been a large reason why the Suns have made more comebacks this season than Brett Favre and Guns and Roses combined. [Read more...]
