Jackson: Suns short on time

This is great. More “war of the words,” by Jackson and D’Antoni. Phil basically gave his thoughts on the Suns “time frame” for a championship. It is a well known fact the Suns are one of the oldest teams in the league. D’Antoni didn’t seem to thrilled from Phil’s opinion…

AZ Republic: “They (the Suns) have got a window that’s closing really fast,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said before Friday night’s game. “If they don’t get a championship, they’ve missed an opportunity.”

Suns coach Mike D’Antoni is just happy that his team has a window.

“We don’t have a window closing,” D’Antoni said. “What’s fast? Four years? Four or five years? Steve is going to play for four, five more years.”

Jackson said his mention of a closing window referred to the Suns’ style and how Nash can be worn out because of it.

“He’s the engine that could,” Jackson said of Nash. “He does a terrific job of being able to play, and it’s apparent in his condition and endurance.”

    Phil’s just trying to start some sort of distraction from all this other crap we’ve been going through this season. He wouldn’t normally add fuel to this already blazing fire we have with the suns. He just wants people to take their minds off of the drama that’s been happening.

    This is why i love our coach and can’t stand whiny little wusses like D’Antoni. If he thinks he has 4 or 5 good years left in Steve Nash’s tank he is delusional. D’Antoni was so humiliated by the 30 point beatdown the Lakers laid on him he hasnt shut up since haha.

    Phil: “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”
    D’Antoni: “These aren’t the droids we’re looking for.”
    Phil: “Move along.”
    D’Antoni: “Move along, move along.”

    Good defense by the Los Angeles Lakers drama boys, if only we could patch up the difference, this will be a Los Angeles good season. They are running, switching in defense, rebounding see those efforts. We don’t have yet the Lakers team down.
