The Orlando Magic’s Stan Van Gundy and the Phoenix Suns’ Alvin Gentry today were named the NBA Eastern and Western Conference Coaches of the Month, respectively, for games played in October and November.
In this video from suns.com, the guys weigh in on their favorite movies of the summer. Looks like there’s a lot of comedy fans because several of them chose the outstanding comedy The Hangover as their fave. Robin Lopez gets bonus points for picking Star Trek, which was one of my favorite movies of the summer, and for saying he enjoyed 500 Days of Summer, which my favorite Suns fan, Chris Coffel, reviewed for Trashwire. Check out other faves in the video below.
When Suns head coach @AlvinGentry first started tweeting, he credited his daughter for getting him to join Twitter.
So who better to go to for the second part of ValleyoftheSuns’ in-depth look at social media and the NBA than Alexis Gentry herself?
OK, so the head coach has only sent out a happy Fourth of July tweet since the draft lottery, but he provided some insightful commentary on the Suns’ season last year and promises to do so again this season.
Alexis answered a couple of my questions via e-mail about how her dad got on Twitter, what grade she’d give him as a tweeter and what she’s doing with her entertainment Web site, Trashwire.com.

Everyone knows I love the Suns and, if you follow me on twitter, you know that I have a recurring theme of tying the Suns to Prince’s outstanding 80s music/movie extravaganza Purple Rain. Never could I imagine that the two things would meet in one place, but now they have… plus a little Michael Jackson, Karate Kid and Star Wars.
