You Didn’t Know About Greg Monroe?

Published

on

That third sentient sponge you have given up on in the back of the soap dish, that is all too ready to disintegrate when called upon, that is Greg Monroe. A crumbly, albeit tall, instrument you use to clean up your franchise’s mess.

Rumor has it that he is headed to Beantown.  Not much to clean-up there but Monroe would swiftly wipe those boards at the Fleet Center.

Monroe, the Big East (remember when that existed?)  Rookie of the Year (7th overall in the 2010 Draft), was selected to play in the NBA All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge and showed his promise.

During the 2013–14 season, Monroe recorded his third consecutive season with 1,000-plus points and 600-plus rebounds, joining Grant Hill as the only Piston to do so since 1994–95. In the parlance of classic car enthusiasts, Monroe kept the team VROOOMMINNGG.

Monroe was a DNP at Dallas on 1/31 but in the previous game he managed 14 points on 6-8 shooting during 23 minutes. Outside of the obvious contenders, who would pass on Greg Monroe?

At 6’11”. Monroe is a rim protector and the bassist of his band. He constructs the rhythm that this Knicks offense plays, he  tunes in on the tenor sax of Porzingas by also offering the 11 points and 8 rebounds he gathered against the Knicks and Pacers respectively.

In the midst of the torrent of the Russell Westbrook’s, LeBron James’, and Lonzo Ball’s (Yes, I said it), Greg Monroe has continually racked rebounds, plus/ minuses, and DEED-UP lesser-thans.

Suns Fans Petitioning for Robert Sarver to Sell Team

Published

Phoenix Suns fans have has enough of owner Robert Sarver, who is arguably the worst owner in the NBA.

Fans are taking their disdain a step further, and have started a petition to force Sarver to sell the team.

Sarver has been brutally terrible with his running of the once proud and successful organization, with his constant meddling and micro-managing that has held the Suns team back.

The recent issues with Talking Stick Arena and Sarver, who threatened relocation before backtracking, was the breaking point for 
longtime fan Josh Miller, who started a petition on the website change.org, according to The Arizona Republic.

“From their inception in 1968, through 2010, the Phoenix Suns were one of the NBA’s model franchises,” wrote Miller in the petition’s description. “The Suns were typically among contenders for the NBA championship. In their history, the Suns have won 7 division titles, and played in the NBA Finals twice. Despite not winning a championship, until recently, the Suns had the fourth highest winning percentage in NBA history.”

The petition goes on to make a plea for NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to step in:

“The only solution is for Mr. Silver to force Robert Sarver to sell the team to an owner who wants to invest in the franchise and is interested in putting together a basketball team that can compete in the NBA.”

Suns Expected to Move Trevor Ariza

Published

on

Amid another dreadful season, there is growing belief around the league that the Phoenix Suns will make Trevor Ariza available when December 15th, the first day players who signed free-agent contracts this past summer are eligible to be traded, rolls around.

According to the New York Times Marc Stein, Ariza, who inked a one-year, $15 million deal with Phoenix during the offseason, is a candidate to be bought out by the Suns, who did the same thing with Tyson Chandler earlier this season, although the Suns are hoping to gauge interest on the trade market for a fair return.

Ariza could be a nice spark for a team down the stretch of the season, and the Suns’ need at point guard could present an opportunity for the Suns to piece together a package featuring Ariza, to land a more permanent solution at their glaring hole at the point guard position.
