Alvin Gentry is ready. In fact, he is more than ready.
“We’re very much prepared, okay.”
The Suns head coach, like everyone else, is waiting for the NBA season to begin. It was suppose to get underway tonight against Oklahoma City. The lockout though has canceled that game in addition to 15 other Suns games in November.
So, instead of trying to figure out how to slow down Kevin Durant and the Thunder, Gentry joined several Suns employees at Excelencia School in Phoenix Wednesday morning to launch “Operation Orange Nets”. The Suns are hanging 1,968 orange basketball nets at schools, parks and recreation centers throughout the Valley in honor of the team’s inaugural year as a franchise, 1968.
