  • Shannon Brown starting to prove the naysayers (like me) wrong

    Face it – when news broke March 30 that Suns forward Grant Hill was having surgery on his right knee, you figured the season was over. For a second straight season, a slow-starting Suns team would rally furiously following the All-Star break, only to fall short of their goal of reaching the NBA Playoffs. I […]
  • Wildcats land Duquesne transfer McConnell

    The rich get richer. Or at least so it would seem. Head coach Sean Miller’s 2012 recruiting class is already ranked as the top collection of incoming talent in the country by many publications. Tuesday, the Arizona basketball program added another weapon to their arsenal for the future by adding guard T.J. McConnell, who will […]
  • Out in left field

    I’m a little late to this party, I know. But maybe the discussion we’re about to have is a little more relevant now that the Diamondbacks’ season has actually begun. I must admit, I feel a little awkward when I think about the Diamondbacks’ left field situation. It’s weird to watch Gerardo Parra receive his […]
  • DDB: Notes and Quotes From Monday’s Practice

    GLENDALE – With the Pacific Division title firmly in hand, the Coyotes re-assembled at Arena on Monday to start preparations for their first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series vs. Chicago. Only a handful of players skated while the rest did off- ice workouts and interviews. All players are expected on the ice Tuesday with Game […]
  • Brock Osweiler set to meet with Dolphins

    Coming off Brock Osweiler’s recent workout for the Denver Broncos Friday in Tempe, the former Arizona State quarterback tweeted he’s scheduled to meet with the Dolphins after arriving in Miami. Just landed in Miami…excited about my visit with the Dolphins! — Brock Osweiler (@BrockOsweiler) April 9, 2012 It’s Osweiler’s second visit with an NFL team […]
  • Coyotes will enter playoffs rested, healthy

    The Coyotes begin the Stanley Cup playoffs Thursday, five days after they closed out the regular season and won the Pacific Division with a 4-1 victory in Minnesota. It was the team’s fifth-straight win and seventh in 10 games. The Coyotes are playing good hockey but now they rest. The waiting, said forward Raffi Torres, […]
  • Doan: This year’s Coyotes have higher ceiling

    When the Phoenix Coyotes qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs two seasons ago, they were a novelty. Sure, they skated into the postseason with a franchise-high 107 points, but they hadn’t been to the “party” in seven years. That Coyotes team went seven games with a talented Detroit Red Wings team before succumbing. Last season, […]
  • Coyotes face more talented team in Blackhawks

    The Phoenix Coyotes won the Pacific Division, tallying 42 victories and 97 points throughout the course of the season. The third seed in the Western Conference playoff picture, they are matched up with the Chicago Blackhawks, won 45 games and earned 101 points. They also won the Stanley Cup just two years ago, so really, […]
  • Coyotes GM Maloney knows Mike Smith is key

    The Phoenix Coyotes are ready. Pacific Division champs for the first time and Stanley Cup Playoff participants for the third consecutive season, the team knows they now must win in the one place they have not. “We’re not, per say, a young, young team, that we should be intimidated at all,” Coyotes GM Don Maloney […]
  • Gibbyball is Money(ball)

    Didn’t Moneyball just earn multiple Oscar nominations? #Ding. Because you know what they say about Hollywood, that it’s a copycat league, right? With that in mind, Paulie Producer is ready to pose a question (and it has nothing to do with whether the Ferris Wheel is worthy of the D-backs’ rotation. #Tired). Instead, we’re just […]
  • Diamondbacks are still the Diamondbacks, and that’s a good thing

    If it is at all possible for a team to make a statement just three games into a 162-game season, the Arizona Diamondbacks did just that over the weekend. It’s not just that the D-backs swept the San Francisco Giants, a team many think will challenge Arizona for the NL West crown. And it’s not […]
  • Suns should include Redd in future plans

    His days of being a team’s leading-scorer are behind him, but that doesn’t mean he still can’t score on a whim. Over the past three months, Michael Redd has gone from washed up veteran just trying to get some reps on a team going nowhere in a hurry, to the best player off the bench […]
  • DDB: Coyotes ‘kicked down the door’ to the playoffs

    GLENDALE — Coyotes G.M. Don Maloney is proud of the Coyotes for winning the first division title in franchise history, but at the same time he notes the team still has much, much bigger fish to fry. The Coyotes, who have never advanced beyond the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs since moving to […]
  • Report: Osweiler works out for Broncos

    According to Mike Klis of The Denver Post, John Elway and company could be wooing another quarterback. After locking up the services of sure-fire Hall of Famer Peyton Manning last month, the Denver Broncos are looking for his possible successor, and that search took them to Tempe. Former Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler worked out […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs sweep Giants

    If you would’ve told me the Diamondbacks were going to sweep the Giants on Friday morning… I would’ve believed you. If you would’ve told me that the Diamondbacks were going to rough up Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner and come back from being down 6-0 against Matt Cain… I would’ve said no way. I guess […]
  • Largest opening weekend attendance for Diamondbacks since 2003

    The Arizona Diamondbacks had more than 108,000 fans at Chase Field for Opening Weekend, the most since the first weekend of the 2003 season (113,709). A crowd of 49,130 on Friday was the fourth-largest regular-season crowd in Diamondbacks history and third-largest on Opening Day. “We want to thank our fans for making Opening Weekend such […]
  • Suns head coach Alvin Gentry doing a ‘phenomenal’ job

    PHOENIX — Steve Nash has said he would like to play three more years. Grant Hill believes he could play two more years. If either free-agent-to-be returns next season, they’ll be playing for a head coach who is signed for only one more year. “I mean Alvin [Gentry] is an amazing coach,” answered Nash when […]
  • Off the Ice: Relief vs. concerns in Coyotes vs. Blackhawks

    It’s set. The Phoenix Coyotes will take on the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. It’s a winnable series, but the Coyotes are in for a rough ride from the ‘Hawks, who are loaded with big-game experience and arguably one of the best followings in the NHL. Looking ahead to […]

  • Phoenix Coyotes, Pacific Division Champs!

    The words ‘division champions’ has never been attached to the name Phoenix Coyotes. In fact, they’ve never been pinned to the name Winnipeg Jets, either. After a 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild in Minneapolis Saturday night, the two phrases are linked for the first time in the 32-year NHL history of the franchise. When […]
