  • 'Little Gambo' signs letter of intent
    John Gambadoro | February 06, 2013 10:40 am
    She had 14 days from today to sign and date the document for it to become official. But she had no need to take that long. She was not allowed to sign it until 7:00 a.m. Wednesay morning, so she signed...
  • Suns make huge mistake in hiring Lindsey Hunter as head coach
    John Gambadoro | January 21, 2013 8:17 am
    In the span of a weekend the Phoenix Suns fired the wrong guy and then they hired the wrong guy. The whirlwind 48-hour so-called interview process that followed the surprising firing of head coach...
  • Thanks for everything Whiz, but it was time for a change
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 31, 2012 4:45 pm
    It's always difficult when someone loses their job -- yes, even multi-millionaires like Ken Whisenhunt. But the time had come. Every coach has a message, a plan, a belief in his system and Whisenhunt...
  • Good riddance, Beanie Wells
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 27, 2012 10:51 am
    So Beanie "the Bust" Wells wants to woo the other 31 teams in the NFL? Sure Beanie, go ahead. But not from the football field on...
  • Gambo: Only time will tell on D-backs' trade of Bauer
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 12, 2012 1:00 pm
    Only time will tell if the Arizona Diamondbacks made a good trade on Tuesday. What we do know is they dealt from a position of strength (pitching prospects) to address a position of need (shortstop). Now,...
  • Suns should be regretting Michael Beasley's signing by now
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 05, 2012 8:35 am
    Let's get one thing clear here. The Phoenix Suns did not learn from their past mistakes of wasting good money on bad players like Josh Childress, Hedo Turkoglu and Hakim Warrick. Somehow, someway...
  • Change could be coming, but are the Cardinals committed to winning?
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | December 04, 2012 8:33 am
    It is not a fun time to be an Arizona Cardinals fan right now. An eight-game losing streak! Seriously! In a league of parity, the hapless Cardinals have managed to have losing streaks of six, seven and...
  • Mike D'Antoni gives Lakers best chance to win
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | November 12, 2012 12:29 pm
    Now Mike D'Antoni can "bust' the Phoenix Suns. The former Suns coach is now the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, and contrary to those who object, this is an absolutely great hire for the purple and...
  • Los Angeles Lakers had to fire Mike Brown
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | November 09, 2012 12:26 pm
    The 1-4 Lakers wasted little time in firing Mike Brown as head coach, and they fired him for all the right reasons. Brown and the Princeton offense that he had Eddie Jordan bring in was the worst possible...
  • D-backs emulating Giants' championship blueprint
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | October 29, 2012 10:12 am
    With two World Series wins in the past three years, you would figure teams would want to emulate the San Francisco Giants. And no team is closer to the Giants' brand of baseball than the Arizona Diamondbacks....
  • A big test awaits in Tempe next Thursday
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | October 12, 2012 1:01 pm
    This is the game. The big test. A chance to finally find out how good of a college football team they are. After a schedule filled with bad to mediocre teams, the first big test is finally here. This...
  • Sun Devils have chance to elevate their status in Berkeley
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 28, 2012 6:51 am
    After watching Washington beat Stanford Thursday night, I am more convinced than ever that Arizona State has a great opportunity to break into the top four in the Pac-12 Conference this season -- maybe...
  • Gambo's random thoughts: Cards, CY and Doan
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 18, 2012 9:34 pm
    I think we are all surprised by the Cardinals being 2-0 mainly because they had to play New England on the road. Clearly this team is winning with defense and special teams, but Kevin Kolb is doing what...
  • Time for Arizona Cardinals to cut ties with Kevin Kolb
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | August 20, 2012 11:34 am
    It's time for the Cardinals to cut their losses. I'm sorry they wasted over $20 million dollars on Kevin Kolb and I certainly don't blame them for trying to get a franchise signal caller after the...
  • MLB should punish the Giants along with Melky Cabrera
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | August 15, 2012 11:36 am
    It is time. Time for Major League Baseball to start punishing teams for their players cheating. I am so tired of this era, so sick of hearing about players cheating. Tired of Ryan Braun, Manny...
  • Kubel is D-backs' priority moving forward
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | August 09, 2012 7:28 am
    The Arizona Diamondbacks have a new priority in the off-season -- re-signing Jason Kubel. With all the uncertainty surrounding Justin Upton and the reality that the Diamondbacks will once again listen...
  • How times have changed for the Cardinals
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | July 25, 2012 9:07 pm
    The first day of Cardinals camp Wednesday in Flagstaff brought me back to the spring of 2003. It was then that the Arizona Cardinals, coming off a 5-11 season under coach Dave McGinnis were looking...
  • Suns' fireworks on the Fourth: Gambo's take
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | July 05, 2012 7:56 am
    The Phoenix Suns supplied lots of fireworks Wednesday on the most appropriate day of the year. Things moved fast once they agreed to move Steve Nash to the Lakers, ending an exciting and highly-successful...
  • Suns must proceed with caution in free agency
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | June 22, 2012 7:12 am
    The most dangerous time in the NBA season is upon us next week and fans all across the country especially here in Phoenix should be afraid. Be very afraid! Free agency is fool's gold in this league,...
  • Bottom line: Upton's gotta get going
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | May 10, 2012 10:07 am
    The time has come. No more excuses. Justin Upton has to put this Arizona Diamondbacks team on his back and carry them. He may be only 24-years-old, but he has played in the major leagues since 2007,...
