Suns President of Operations Apologizes to Fans

Things have become so grim in Phoenix that the front-office is having to apologize to the fans for the squad’s on-court performance. From the AZ Republic: “After getting home at 2 a.m., Babby was quick to apologize to fans Wednesday morning when he began his weekly segment on KTAR-AM (620). Babby said he felt he owed the fans an apology on behalf of the team and pledged everyone in the organization would work harder to improve the team’s outlook. ‘If you’re a fan that’s a season-ticket holder or someone who comes and invests in our franchise or if you’re vested emotionally, you have to be feeling what I’m feeling when I watched that game,’ Babby said later Wednesday. ‘You have to be feeling what I’m feeling when I watched that game. You’re disappointed that we’re not competing. It would  wrong of me to sugarcoat that so I felt owed it to people to be candid. It’s not acceptable to us any more than it is to any of you.’ Babby, in line with Suns coach Alvin Gentry, talked about the need to compete more because he said the team is better than its record. ‘I don’t think we’re playing up to the level of our talent,’ said Babby, who said the difference in team chemistry is “stark because you’re comparing to what was last year, which was magical.’”

    Zee, how do you do that??. Its not that theyre not competing, they just suck, especially on defense.

  • Instead of apoligizing for the performance of the team, why doesn’t he apologize for the terrible decision-making of the organization?

    Tarzan: Er, buddy, I’d like to disagree with you. The Suns are DEFINITELY not competing. ESPECIALLY on defense. People are outrunning-gunning the Suns cause they don’t run back after an offensive set, and they ain’t even running during the fast break. They’re not reaching for passes, not jumping for rebounds, total lack of effort on all parts, and that ESPECIALLY includes Nash, who has shied away from doing anything intensive during clutch fourth quarters this year.

    nothing worse then clinging to past brilliance instead of accepting what the players on this team already seem to know; this Suns team will not be competitive when it comes playoff time that’s why their effort is so poor. It’s terrible to see Steve Nash stuck in this mess after all he has done for the team. And i guarantee you the only reason they won’t trade him is ticket sales

    The whole organization should be apologizing for not resigning Amare when he wanted to stay there.

  • roman
