I reported a team source saying that if the Suns' players voted, they would've picked Dan Majerle as their choice
to succeed Alvin Gentry, not Lindsey Hunter. A second team source doesn't categorically dispute that but said more core players were in favor of Hunter than Majerle. The results since Hunter has taken over supports that. The Suns are now 3-4 under Hunter with signature wins over the Clippers and Lakers. Seeing them up close against the Warriors Saturday night -- playing on the second night of a back-to-back -- they look like anything but a team going through the motions or playing to spite their coach. All that said, there's a sense within the Suns' organization that if Hunter doesn't show he has coaching chops, owner Robert Sarver might be inclined to continue the purge and clean out his front office as well.
