Did Heat PG Goran Dragic Diss His Old Team, the Phoenix Suns?

Miami and Phoenix are known for some pretty good weather, but the two cities are night and day when it comes to their NBA teams.

Goran Dragic says he "saw it coming," asking the Suns for a trade because he wasn’t going to re-sign. Dragic will visit Phoenix for the first time as a member of the Heat, with the Suns in shambles. 

During a sitdown with Yahoo Sports’ Michael Lee, Dragic gave a textbook answer in explaining the struggles in Phoenix.

“It feels like they’re always changing something,” Dragic told Yahoo Sports. “They’re not like Miami, San Antonio, those teams that are really loyal when they find something.”

“Me and Bledsoe, we built really great chemistry together, we played well and the whole team did. Everybody expected that we’re going to get some big guys that we thought we needed, but they did another move, they bring in a point guard and it was tough,” Dragic told Yahoo. “I was a little bit frustrated. It was tough, especially for me, because I was playing off the ball all the time, and I was guarding [small forwards]. That was tough for me, but they did what they did.”

“I always believe when you find some pieces that you leave those pieces [alone]. But then you upgrade the other positions. Like San Antonio is doing. They always have the Big Three, but then it’s a good team. They always find another player at another position, so they’re always good. But that’s not my call,” Dragic told Yahoo, with an uncomfortable chuckle. “I was just there to play basketball. I tried to do my job.”

“I wish them all the best,” Dragic told Yahoo. “I already went through the season with only [25] wins … and it’s not pretty. Most of the guys, we’re really competitive and you want to win a lot of games. And when you get to that mix where you don’t win [in] like 10 games in a row, that’s really tough. That’s really tough. Everything is worse. In your personal life. Everything. I always say I’m hurting sometimes, have a lot of injuries. But if you win a game, I feel great. But if you lose the game, those injuries, they come up. I don’t know how to explain it, winning is such a unique thing.”

His words make perfect sense, and the Suns weren’t that big of a backcourt with Dragic and Bledsoe together. You add in Isaiah Thomas to a four years, $27 million deal, and you get an idiotic logjam with three talented points guard on the floor at the same time.
