    Jermaine O'Neal has heated confrontation with Suns GM

    Phoenix Suns center Jermaine O'Neal and general manager Lance Blanks engaged in a blistering, expletive-laced confrontation in the coach's office on Monday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. 

    "It was really bad," one Suns source said Tuesday afternoon.

    The confrontation happened after interim coach Lindsey Hunter's first practice and unfolded within earshot of several Suns players in the locker room, sources said.

    It was immediately unclear what precipitated the disagreement, sources said, but there has been considerable unrest within the organization. At 13-28, the Suns have the worst record in the Western Conference.

    The Arizona Republic reported Tuesday that O'Neal missed practice with an "unstated medical issue" and wouldn't make the team's trip to Sacramento.

    Blanks didn't immediately respond to a text message.

    The Suns fired coach Alvin Gentry and replaced him with Hunter, who worked in player development and has no coaching background.

    O'Neal has averaged 6.4 points and four rebounds a game for the Suns in his 16th season in the NBA.

    You would think that players that have been traded so often would get a clue...

    "O'Neal has averaged 6.4 points and four rebounds a game for the Suns in his 16th season in the NBA."

    I wonder if Commie has changed his stance that we blew it letting JO go and that he is tearing it up in Phoenix and being a huge difference maker. Yeah, he's making a difference all right - in the negative sense of the word... LMAO

    I was surprised that he was signed by any team this seaon.  Not surprised that things aren't working out for him.

    • While Blanks and Jermaine O'Neal both downplayed reports of an altercation between the two, Bucher says (via Sulia) O'Neal is upset that the Suns plan to diminish his role. Bucher wonders if the Suns may eventually trade or release O'Neal, speculating that the Celtics, Heat, and Sixers would have interest.
