Fox Sports’ Rob Parker Calls Suns Finals Run “Fugazi”

Fox Sports Radio’s Rob Parker isn’t jumping on the Phoenix Suns bandwagon anytime soon. The co-host of The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard and Rob Parker went off on the show Thursday night, declaring this Suns’ Finals run “Fugazi.”

“When I think about the Phoenix Suns and their run to the championship there’s just two questions,” Parker posed on the evening offering from Fox Sports Radio. “Was it for real or was it FUGAZI? Was it FRAUDULENT?? I’m saying it’s FUGAZI. I know they were the number two seed in the West but let’s just be honest. They had the easiest path and it was a M.A.S.H. unit that they went through.”

Parker then ran through the breaks Phoenix fell into on their way to the last round of the NBA Playoffs.

“Anthony Davis, remember that series?” Parker asked as he continued his rant. “They were down and everyone thought they were going back to the championship. Anthony Davis gets hurt and the Suns win that series. We knew Denver was eventually going to have to pay the piper without having Jamal Murray. Nobody thought the Clippers were even gonna beat Utah after Kawhi Leonard got hurt in Game 4.”

To be fair to the Suns, They destroyed the Lakers after Davis went down, easily swept the Nuggets, and dispatched a Leonard-less Clippers team that went 2-0 against the number one seeded Jazz in six games. Yet, Parker isn’t impressed.

“If they win the championship, it counts,” Parker said. “I’m not into asterisks, but I’m telling you, if I touched the Suns’ championship run to the Finals, I’d have to wash my hands. If I went to the bank to try to cash a check from them, IT WOULD BOUNCE. That’s how FUGAZI this run to the NBA Finals has been for the Suns. Nice job, Chris Paul, BUT YOU GOT LUCKY. The Red Sea parted to allow the Suns to get to the NBA Finals. I wish people would own up to it.”

Catch The Odd Couple airing weekdays on Fox Sports Radio from 7-10 p.m. ET.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”

Some analysis made by Sunday Night Football commentator Cris Collinsworth caught the attention of 94 WIP morning host Angelo Cataldi that sent him over the edge Monday morning.

“Joe Banner ripped Cris Collinsworth last night over something he said about Andy Reid in the game last night,” Rhea Hughes said as she detailed Banner’s criticism. “He goes ‘I worked for Andy Reid for 14 years. Cris Collinsworth just said if there’s anything Andy Reid loves to do it’s pound the football.”

“Oh that’s a total lie! Cris Collinsworth is a bozo!”, Cataldi shouted.

Reid faced heavy criticism at the end of his tenure as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for his reluctance to run the football. The team routinely finished in the bottom half of the league in rushing yards per game during Reid’s 14 seasons at the helm of the franchise.

“He goes ‘I think Cris is usually smart in and his analysis is good but…” Hughes said before Cataldi interrupted by shouting “No he’s not! No he’s not!”, he reiterated. “He’s not smart!”

“NBC needs to learn he does no work anymore,” Hughes added of Collinsworth.

“Nothing! Stop it! Stop it all of you! Stop it now!”, Cataldi concluded.
