Portland Tribune story about the firing of Terry Porter in Phoenix

5

I don't remember that Ben has posted this already in one of his "full court press" reports or that it was posted at another place. It's quite a long and very good piece by Kerry Eggers on what went wrong with Terry Porter trying to revamp the Phoenix Suns into a more defensive team. While taking responsibility he does put some blame on key players not really buying into the philosophy change the front office wanted. Quotes from Shaq, Hill, Barnes and Steve Kerr are included. Nash and Amare were not available. Really interesting backstory.
