John Gambadoro Columns

  • Trading Steve Nash won't be easy for Suns
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | January 18, 2012 8:36 am
    The most important date on the calendar this season for the Phoenix Suns is March 15th, and it has nothing to do with a date in L.A. against Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and the Clippers that night. No,...
  • It's time for change at ASU
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | November 13, 2011 8:16 am
    It's a good thing that Arizona State Athletic Director Lisa Love didn't give head football coach Dennis Erickson a contract extension after that big 43- 22 win over USC in the fourth game of the season...
  • No reason why Diamondbacks can't win Game 5
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | October 06, 2011 11:06 am
    There is no reason to think that the Arizona Diamondbacks can't pull off on Friday what has never been done before since baseball switched to the current playoff format in 1995: winning the NLDS after...
  • Cardinals should admit their mistake and cut Chester Taylor
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 27, 2011 12:03 pm
    Sometimes you need to cut your losses while you can. Admit your mistake and move on. Such is the case for the Arizona Cardinals and running back Chester Taylor. It was a mistake from the day they...
  • Let the offense save the defense
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 20, 2011 8:13 am
    You can make the argument that the best defense is a good offense, and in the case of the Arizona Cardinals you would be right. The Cardinals defense through two games has been statistically one of...
  • Finally, college football returns
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | September 05, 2011 10:47 am
    It was nice after an offseason of high-profile scandals and conference realignments to finally get to some Saturday football. While Miami and Ohio State played shorthanded this week due to suspensions...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks must rely on their veterans
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | August 23, 2011 7:58 am
  • D-backs trade for Hernandez has been huge success
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | August 12, 2011 7:41 am
    No general manager can hit on all of his trades and free agent signings. They all make mistakes. And Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers is no exception. He swung and missed quite a few times this year....
  • Gambo and Ash: They say all good things must come to an end
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | August 01, 2011 7:10 am
    They say all good things must come to an end. And such is the case for the Gambo and Ash show. After 12 years of hosting the main afternoon drive sports show here in Phoenix, the show is no longer....
  • D-backs should favor prospects over pitching
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | July 14, 2011 8:37 pm
    For the first time in years the Arizona Diamondbacks will be buyers, not sellers, at the trade deadline. But let the buyer beware in this case, because while the Diamondbacks are clearly in contention in the National League West, they are by no means a lock to make the postseason. Arizona has a stocked minor league system with a number of quality young players destined to be a part of their bright future. While many fans may say the future is now, the D-backs still have to be careful not to make a bad trade, a trade that see's them swap a young star for a rent-a-player. One such player is the Padres Heath Bell.
  • Pietrus cares more about money than championships
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | July 08, 2011 7:11 am
    I'm frankly getting tired of all these athletes lying to us, playing us like we are fools. The latest is Suns swingman Mickael Pietrus, who in dissing the Phoenix Suns to a French newspaper saying...
  • With the 13th pick the Phoenix Suns select...
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | June 23, 2011 7:44 am
    And with the 13th selection in the 2011 NBA draft the Phoenix Suns select -------. Ok before we get to that pick let's go over some scenarios because there are several players the Suns like and would...
  • Justin Upton maturing right before our eyes
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | June 17, 2011 8:30 am
    You can see it happening right before your eyes. The maturity level is at an all-time high. The game winning hits, the leadership, the commitment to playing the game the right way. It's all happening...
  • Can we look at the good in the Mavs and not the bad in the Heat?
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | June 10, 2011 8:05 am
    Unfortunately for the Dallas Mavericks if they happen to win the NBA Championship nobody outside of Big D will be talking about their success, they will be talking about the failures of the Big 3 and...
  • Suns need to trade the No. 13 pick for Jonny Flynn
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | June 03, 2011 6:52 am
    For years the Phoenix Suns have traded away draft picks in an effort to save money. The organization could have had Rajon Rondo, Rudy Fernandez, Luol Deng or Andre Iguodola, to name a few. With...
  • Chris Young is who he is and that's okay
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | May 27, 2011 7:19 pm
    I have come to the conclusion that Chris Young is who he is. I no longer have the expectations of CY hitting .300 with 30 homers and 100 runs batted in. He is going to hit somewhere between .225...
  • James Harden is making a name for himself
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | May 20, 2011 8:11 am
    While Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are bigger names on the Oklahoma City roster, it is becoming very evident in these NBA playoffs not only how valuable, but how good former Sun Devil James Harden...
  • Pac-12, ASU now on equal terms with other power conferences
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | May 06, 2011 8:46 am
    We all knew the Pac-12 would be getting a nice new television deal. We never could have imagined that they would have got a deal that trumped that of the SEC and Big 10. Yes, the new Commissioner...
  • Grading the Cardinals draft
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | May 02, 2011 7:18 am
    We all expect Patrick Peterson to be a flat out stud in the secondary, a true shutdown cornerback. So for that this draft is a success. But for this to be a truly great draft at least three maybe four...
  • No debating Peterson was the right pick
    John Gambadoro/ArizonaSports.com | April 29, 2011 7:31 am
    It would be fun if we could debate the Cardinals fist selection in the 2011 draft, but there really is no debate. The Cardinals had no choice but to select Patrick Peterson with the fifth overall...
