Dan Majerle a little miffed at Suns for not picking him
Majerle said he believes the interview process to replace former head coach Alvin Gentry was a charade because he thinks General Manager Lance Blanks already had settled on Hunter over the assistant coaches. "It's been a hard pill to swallow," Majerle said. "The first thing that disappoints me is usually in a situation like this, the interim gets the jobs and that is Elston (Turner) with his 14 years of experience. Once he didn't get it, I thought I deserved it. The thing I keep hearing management say on the radio is that hiring me would've been the popular and easy thing to do. I earned it. I deserved a shot if it's not going to be Elston. I coached 5 ½ years. I coached the summer leagues. I didn't need a favor. Picking Elston would've been the easy thing to do."

So bottom line, he thought he should have gotten it. He keeps referring to Elston, but we all know that's just a veiled attempt for him to say he should have gotten the job.

"Thunder" Dan seems to know what he's talking about as far as coaching. his analysis during and after games when he'd call them was really good, reminded you a bit of Doug Collins in the way he'd talk as a coach.
shame they didn't take him seriously. the franchise and city likes him. if anything, he would've been a safe pick for this lost season.

i was at Gentry's last game that he coached (bucks vs suns). the crowd was dead. such a different scenery compared to the games i used to go to when nash, amare and marion ran the show with Mike D. the least the Suns could have done was throw the suns fans a bone and let thunder dan coach as that is all anyone in phoenix really wants to see at this point.

Even though I'm not a Suns fan, they've gutted that franchise and to see it in such disarray is kind of weird.
