Do the Suns realize it’s not the playoffs yet? February 5, 2007

Seriously, I’m not sure if D’Antoni understands that the regular season is not the playoffs. Usually coaches go to a 6-8 man rotation in the playoffs, not before the All-Star break. Since the beginning of January, ie. the last 18 games, here are the per minute totals per player:

Diaw 33.9
Marion 37.7
Stoudemire 34.6
Bell 32.4
Nash 34.8
Barbosa 31.3
Jones 21.0
Banks 6.1
Thomas 5.1
Jones 2.0
Rose 1.2
Burke 1.1

And if we discount the 4 blowout games in which Pat Burke actually played minutes (how is it possible that there are only 4 blowout games?!?), in the 14 other games the totals:

Diaw 35
Marion 38.6
Stoudemire 35.9
Bell 34.7
Nash 36.2
Barbosa 31.4
Jones 19.8
Banks 4.2
Thomas 4.0
Jones 1.0

I mean, come on, already. A 7 man rotation in the regular season? After last …

A bit of history, the best beer company in the world dropped a bunch of bottles in …
