Blueprint for Alvin Gentry's Replacement to Fix Phoenix Suns' Losing Culture

After a pitiful 13-28 start to the season, the Phoenix Suns recently decided to "part ways" with now-former head coach Alvin Gentry. 

In Gentry's defense, this season really has not been his fault. A lack of talent is the reason the Suns are now the worst team in the West, not bad coaching. Gentry is an intelligent and knowledgeable person, and the real blame lies with those who assembled this mediocre roster and then held the coach to unrealistic expectations. Gentry is merely a scapegoat.

However, that is all in the past. There is no going back after what happened, and the Suns can only look ahead to the future and try to fix some of the problems that this team currently faces. Lindsey Hunter, Elston Turner and Dan Majerle are the favorites to become the interim head coach, and any one of those three guys would have the opportunity to steer this team in the right direction for the future.

Here are just a few ways Gentry's replacement can do exactly that.
