04:37 PM ET 11.19 | The Phoenix Suns are off to a poor start in the post-Steve Nash era, and one of the men who benefited most from Nash's presence is now upset with his role. In an interview with a Polish reporter, Marcin Gortat sounded off on coach Alvin Gentry, suggesting that Gentry does not use him much. "Unfortunately, I don't think I'm even an option for Gentry. He doesn't even take me into consideration. The situation is critical. We're playing the same thing we've been playing last year, but the truth is we have a completely different set of players. I don't think it really works. I can't get frustrated now though, I have to stay positive," he said.

Trade him to San Antonio. We need a Big Man.

He is probably a top 10 center right now ... probably close to top 5.

He probably thought it wouldn't be translated back to English for Gentry.

Gentry tried the slow down offense a couple of years ago -- didn't work then with Nash and that group.
