08:04 AM ET 01.21 | If the Suns, in the words of GM Lance Blanks, "needed a jolt," elevating Lindsey Hunter certainly qualifies. Once [Hunter took the practice court Sunday] with a whistle, the dynamic changed on and off the court. Assistant coach Dan Majerle left US Airways Center after [Blanks] informed him of his pick. Elston Turner, the lead assistant whose role normally gets the promotion, never made it to the court and spent the time talking with Mark West. ... The Suns players, most of whom asked management to pick Majerle, went to work on the second half of their sinking season with Hunter leading a practice he learned he was running 45 minutes earlier. ... Majerle and Turner were offered the chance to stay on Hunter's staff, but both are considering their options.

Hmmmmmmm.......If they want a 'jolt'...how about putting some talent out thereWhat can any coach do with this limited roster?

You really think they have a limited roster??? Their roster is pretty solid, they just need someone to kick them in the butt and motivate them to playing together.

Glad to see Lindsey get a shot. He is a good guy and knows the X's and O's of the game even if he couldnt preform them all that well as a player.

Solid? When Gortat is your best player, thats far from solid. Beasley was brought in to be the main scorer, that says enough right there...not to mention the lack of good guard play and no bench. This team is the west coast Bobcats/Wizards..Gentry was simply a scapegoat

The team sucks. Hunter just signed up for a disaster debut as a HC. Dan should be thankful he wasn't chosen.

Maybe you should find Brian Shaw and ask him about the Lakers job.
