Heard somewhere Terry Porter's been fired as head coach in Phoenix. Thoughts if it is true?

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

It was bound to happen. Most of the times I watched the Suns this season, they're either leading or they're making a comeback but yet they still lose the game.

Wow found this off realgm.com:

According to a Phoenix source, Terry Porter will be replaced by general Manager Steve Kerr as head coach of the Phoenix Suns.

kinda makes sense. hes building this team. if porter cant coach it, have the person building it coach.
i wouldnt be surprised if kerr tries to incorporate the triangle into this team if he takes over. that would be kinda bad for nash though, since the ball would have to be in his hands to make plays and the triangle makes you pass alot to keep rotation and spacing in the offense.

Maybe he wants to save the attrocious job he's done as a GM?

If it's true, it should be on RealGM, or nba.com by now. But never know, since Suns aren't doing so well since Shaq came through the city.

Suns giving up on the season. I can hear a knock on the door of owner Sarver or a telephone call. I think it is Shaq's agent.
