It's been awhile, but NBA Nightly Rundown is back!
Grant Hill on if his exit from Phoenix is bittersweet: “It was tough because not only did we get to the Western Conference finals but I think if you talk to anybody who was on that team, that was really just a special team, a special group of guys, a kind of bond that we had. We had talent obviously but there was a real sense of connection and togetherness on the court. And then quickly it changed.”
The Suns were just not good enough to get over the hump. From 2005-2007 they were one of the top teams in the NBA. Posting great records,and of course Nash won back-to-back MVP's in that span. The Suns may have never won a title because of their style with Mike D as coach. But in 2010 when they lost in the West finals to the Lakers. The Suns were built different, but the result was the same for the Suns. Now the Suns are dwithout Nash, and Hill. The rebuilding has begun in Phoenix.
Van Gundy says Dwight, who was recently traded to the Lakers, is going to lend some financial backing to the cause. “Dwight has pledged his support,” Van Gundy said Monday during an interview on our Open Mike radio show on 740 The Game. “He’s a resident of Seminole County, and he’s keeping his house here. I think his history will show that he’s had great concern for kids in the Central Florida community. With him still living here, we asked him to help and he didn’t hesitate.”
At least Howard's giving a helping hand in Florida.
As far as veterans go, Chris Andersen has pushed the idea of playing for the Knicks, but the sentiment isn't mutual . . . Tracy McGrady did get a much-heralded tryout last week with the Knicks, but there doesn't appear to be great interest there. T-Mac also worked out for the Bobcats and Spurs.
T-Mac still has some game. He gave the Celtics some issues last season in the first round series with the Hawks. Good luck T-Mac, hopefully out west with the Spurs.
