To be honest with you, honestly speaking, speaking only for myself, to be perfectly honest, I could be a great GM.  I'll be honest.  I know I could do it if given the chance, to be honest.  Honestly speaking, speaking only for myself, honestly, to be honest, the Suns need me.  I'll be honest.  Honestly, speaking for myself, I know that I could succeed there, to be honest.  I'll be honest with you, honestly speaking and speaking only for myself, to be honest.  Honestly.

the arizona republic had a good take on his candidacy:  if he is serious about being a GM, let him prove himself as a player development exec / scout / assistant to the assistant to the assistant GM so he can get an idea of what it takes.  the quote was like, "if Chuck is sincere about wanting the GM position, he can prove himself in the lower-level, far less glamorous front office positions."

This is one voice (of many) at the Republic, but Montini and other reporters feel otherwise.

If they filmed the whole thing and gave me acess to it, I'd consider paying more money to the Phoenix organization than I would to my Celtics.

Fans? No. Sportswriters? "I'll chip in a few bucks towards his salary!"

To be honest, most of the celebrities that want to be GMs (Barkley, Simmons, etc) really just want to be scouts, giving their player evaluations to people in charge.

It doesn't really matter who the GM of the Suns is as long as Sarver is the owner.

I wouldn't want him as the GM because then he wouldn't get to be on TV.
