The Phoenix Suns are an excellent mess.
Wednesday began with Suns interim common supervisor James Jones defending the franchise after an unfavorable report from Adrian Wojnarowski. It ended with Jones displaying as much as a Phoenix grocery retailer in the course of the evening as a result of Josh Jackson skipped an marketed public look.
The answer: Free beer.
This might solely occur to the Suns.
Jackson was scheduled to make an look on the Fry’s grocery retailer on 20th and Camelback from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday. It was a sponsored autograph signing with Dos Equis known as Fiesta De Los Suns. The second-year ahead from Kansas was a no-show to the occasion.
The Suns even tweeted (and later deleted!) a video thanking followers for displaying as much as the occasion earlier than it was clear that Jackson wasn’t coming in any respect. Right here’s a reposted have a look at the tweet.
Followers ultimately grew disgruntled after a pair hours of ready, and that was when Jones arrived on the grocery retailer to inform followers that Jackson wasn’t coming.

The scene was described by way of Reddit. Jones purchased followers beer as an apology, which in flip created large strains of individuals wanting free beer:
Not a basketball fan however WTF simply occurred. I obtained to Fry’s and there’s a line outdoors the shop and never a single parking spot. There was some debacle I suppose they have been late and so the Suns?? Paid without cost beer for everyone… everyone seems to be grabbing 12 packs and going to the register for “beer solely”. Yea free Heineken and Dos Eqis. I solely obtained a snippet of information whereas I used to be trying out, so I went again in and went to get my free beer and I used to be advised they closed the tab already. The place appeared like a home occasion with everybody various round their case of beer. What a cluster
Whereas free beer wouldn’t have helped the dissatisfied youngsters who confirmed as much as see Jackson, at the very least Jones tried his greatest with disaster administration. I commend the trouble from the interim GM.
So, the place was Jackson throughout all of this? If his Instagram Story was any indication, Jackson was celebrating a good friend’s birthday at Fogo de Chão on the time of his autograph signing. The restaurant is 10 miles away from the grocery retailer.
Followers as an alternative needed to accept a photograph with three-time NBA champion James Jones.
That night was the state of the Suns franchise in a nutshell.
