Steve Kerr Hates Phoenix. Here's Proof.

NEW YORK - JUNE 26: Robin Lopez , selected fifteenth overall by the Phoenix Suns poses for a portrait backstage during the 2008 NBA Draft on June 26, 2008 at the WaMu Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

It's like hiring a PETA-card toting, Vegetarian to run McDonald's.

Not to mention that Terry Porter looked like he had just shot kidney stones the size or Robin Lopez's kneecaps out his urethra when he was being interviewed by Stu Scott.  Lopez is a slow, offensive-less player who as a "big time rebounder," couldn't even pull down 6 a game against Pac-10 competition. Just what the doctor ordered in Phoenix.

Then, in the second round, they miss on a super-duper athletic kid like Bill Walker so they can get perpetually underachieving Malik Hairston, who was consistently rated 10-15 spots behind Walker on lots of draft boards. If D.J. Strawberry can't get off the bench, what is Hairston gonna do? Oh, I know, go play with the Mercury!

Instead of Hairston, Kerr cut a deal with Phoenix's best friend and completely honest competitor, the Spurs. They got some Euro who may be their point guard in a few years. Yeah, those years. Eons into the future. I bet Hairston turns out to be the next Scottie Pippen.

R.I.P. Steve Nash. Good thing you don't care about getting a ring. Cause this draft just cemented that declaration.
