One of our divisional foes continues their downfall as Alvin Gentry is no longer the head coach of the Phoenix Suns. The reports didn't specifically mention whether it he was fired or quit on his own terms, but they say that Gentry and the team "mutally agreed to part ways."

Gentry was 158-144 in 4 1/2 seasons in the Valley of the Sun. Along with his stints in Miami, Detroit, and of course, the Clippers, his overall coaching record is 335-370, with two playoff appearances (Detroit, '99; Phoenix, '10) in twelve seasons.

That's messed up, Gentry was 1 of only a few bright spots in Pheonix. I really hope he can get a job soon because he's the definition of a class act.

^ Yeah, in a very talented division and conference they have a roster full of role-players. Tough to succeed in a situation like that.

I heard a rumor today that Gentry may join the Lakers' coaching staff in a matter of days.

I hope not. Gentry is actually a decent coach. Surprised the Suns let him go. They were not doing anything with that piss poor roster to begin with. Dragic is not Nash sorry.
