And that's where Dragic's frustration mounts. Asked if he still felt that not all guys were trying at any given time, Dragic replied that he still feels the same.

"We have a team that some nights they bring it, they play hard," he said after the second straight blowout. "And then we get lost for 3-4 games."

Dragic did not mention any particular names, but he clearly was talking about a few players on the team. His comments were sweeping.

"I was talking to Lindsey. All the players are saying we got 30 games left. Everybody is saying "next year we are going to make the playoffs". If we shut down now then we cannot improve ourselves and try to be better next season. We cannot just click and come back next season and start playing better. We have to start now."

Asked about Dragic's comments, center Marcin Gortat paused for a full five seconds (the first time I have ever seen that) as he gazed across the locker room at his point guard. Then he smiled and refused to comment. "I'm not going to answer that," he said.

But Gortat did spend some time talking about the matter.

"I don't think we fight and compete the way the coaches want us to compete," he said. "I have been on winning teams and [Shannon Brown] knows what it takes to win two championships. I think we see things different than some other guys. Something's gotta change. You gotta come ready to play. If you really care, you've got to bring your best."

Gortat does believe the team is heading the right way, though. "Our practice change and the culture is slowly, slowly changing. We have a little bit more discipline. I would say we are going in a better direction definitely. Its just not going to change in a week or two or a month. Sometimes it takes years."

If Dragic chose to stay here, he would be play with Harden in a winning team now. Think about that. Does he regret leaving the rockets?

He's regretting being persistent about that PO now, that's for sure. If he could opt out of the Suns he'd do it in a heartbeat.

You mean to tell me Michael Beasley doesn't bring it every night? I'm shocked.

As much as I would love to have Dragic for this season, going beyond Lin is looking more and more like he has the upside over Dragic, or at least equal. Except with a better contract.

So is Lowry at a better place than Dragic now? Raptors play better lately and he gets to play with his good friend gay. At least the team is trying to win more.

Don't feel sorry for him, he's the one who chose a poorly run team over us.

Before leaving the United States have said that Houston is the first choice. What has changed?

I have already said that a lot depends on the cast. In Houston, they sold quite a few basketball players, somehow working space for the arrival of Dwight Howard, but I do not believe that they will succeed. The team do not seem competitive enough, so I decided to Phoenix. We will have a young, talented team. They brought the Scolaja Luisa, Michael Beasleyja ...

This would be a major upgrade over Pat Beverly and TD by a mile. Him and Lin could fight it out for starter's minutes every night based on who was playing better.

You would have to believe that the rockets' success has something to do with some of his frustrations.

A young, talented team. Sounds like the rockets.

I would not want Dragic to be my team's GM, but as PG, he will do fine.
