08:08 AM ET 04.10 | Including Tuesday night's 101-98 loss to Houston, the Suns have lost 10 in a row and Lindsey Hunter's future is on the line. In terms of a time frame, though, [Suns president Lon Babby] was a little bit more decisive on the matter. With less than 10 days left in the season, he revealed that Hunter's future would be decided sooner rather than later. "We will make a quick decision, but I'm not going to give you a deadline for it," said Babby. "I would say we can't afford an elongated process. I don't anticipate that we would do that. We might make a decision immediately or in short order after the season. To me, there's no particular moment. We've got to make a decision we're comfortable with when we're comfortable with it."

I have never seen a game end like that. Tough way to lose.

That was sad. Weird ending to a fast paced game.

Should've given the job to a more deserving Dan Majerle. Instead they hire (and will now fire) Hunter.

Don't Let The Suns Go Down On You, Bro.

When you have players coming out and telling the media they aren't listening to the coaching staff, what is the head coach supposed to do? This is an example of where the head coach is nothing more than a figure head because if the players do not want to play for you, they aren't going to play...and you will be out of a job.

I think they put him into a horrific situation with limited talent- the end result was known before the season - what he did with beasley- basically making him accountable is EXACTLY why I think he should be given another chance- he has balls !no one on this roster will be on the roster long term- let him coach and grow

He never should have been hired in the first place. He no coaching exp.
