  • These are the candidates to be the Suns' next head coach
    John Gambadoro | May 08, 2013 11:03 am
    The Phoenix Suns say that Lindsey Hunter is still a candidate for the head coaching vacancy, but he has about a snowball's chance in hell of actually getting the job. I'm sure at some point Hunter...
  • D-backs will be patient with bullpen -- they have to be
    John Gambadoro | May 02, 2013 1:04 pm
    There is no easy answer, no quick fix. The Arizona Diamondbacks' bullpen is abysmal with an astonishing 10 blown saves in just a month of baseball. The best news for the Diamondbacks is they can't blow...
  • Forget the other numbers, Justin Upton has 11 homers!
    John Gambadoro | April 24, 2013 12:49 pm
    I'm sure that Arizona is happy with Martin Prado, he is a good player and fit a need for the Diamondbacks. I'm also sure that if Justin Upton had stayed here, he wouldn't be off to this hot of a start....
  • Patrick Corbin proving to be another D-back with a bright future
    John Gambadoro | April 19, 2013 1:41 pm
    In his first game, Patrick Corbin shut down the Milwaukee Brewers over six innings in a 9-2 Diamondbacks win. He followed that up by outdueling Clayton Kershaw by throwing six shutout innings in a 3-0...
  • Wesley Johnson is a nice player, but replaceable
    John Gambadoro | April 16, 2013 2:10 pm
    This is going to be one busy and exciting offseason for the Phoenix Suns. With two first round draft picks, decisions to be made on the general manager and the interim coach and, of course, what to do...
  • Lindsey Hunter's fate could be sealed
    John Gambadoro | April 10, 2013 2:51 pm
    The decision should come down in the next 10 days, maybe sooner. Will Lindsey Hunter be back as coach of the Phoenix Suns next season? If this week is any indication, that answer will be 'no.' I...
  • Suns should at least consider Michigan's Trey Burke
    John Gambadoro | April 09, 2013 11:42 am
    Now that the college basketball season is over, the Phoenix Suns -- whose season has been over for a few months now -- can turn their attention to the NBA Draft figuring to have a top 4 pick. And...
  • It will be nice to get back to basketball for a bit
    John Gambadoro | April 05, 2013 2:22 pm
    The Final Four cannot start soon enough. After a week of talking about coaching abuse, failed drug tests, cheating and bounties in the world of college sports, I am ready for some Peyton Siva, Trey...
  • Will Larry Scott's ego prevent him from doing the right thing?
    John Gambadoro | April 02, 2013 1:50 pm
    How Ed "T 'em up" Rush still has a job with the Pac-12 as its coordinator of officials is beyond comprehension. How Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott can back an investigation that said Rush's bounty...
  • Timing of Kevin Ware's injury could have factored in Louisville win
    John Gambadoro | April 01, 2013 2:52 pm
    The image of Louisville's Kevin Ware lying on the court near the Cardinal bench in Indianapolis is not one I care to remember. I saw the replay once and that was enough for me. It was easily one of...
  • Just say 'no' to Carson Palmer, Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | March 28, 2013 5:18 pm
    Been there done that and nine times out of ten, it doesn't work. The Arizona Cardinals should just say 'no' to another retread quarterback in Carson Palmer and try something very foreign to them --...
  • One weekend in, the tournament has provided us no stars
    John Gambadoro | March 26, 2013 12:38 pm
    So while the NCAA Tournament is generating huge television ratings and tons of excitement, it has done nothing to whet the appetite of Suns fans clamoring for a superstar. The top five picks in this...
  • Adrian Wilson changed the Arizona Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | March 08, 2013 11:54 am
    The Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals have been in existence since the team moved here from St. Louis in 1988. In that time they have had 225 draft picks, but none more important than the third round pick...
  • It will be a sad day when Cardinals abandon Flagstaff
    John Gambadoro | March 04, 2013 12:27 pm
    It will be a sad day when the Arizona Cardinals and the City of Glendale announce a 15-year agreement for the professional football team to host its training camp in the West Valley city. Training...
  • '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...
