Danny Ainge-Robert Horry
The sharp-shooting forward disagreed with being pulled from a game in January 1997 and expressed his displeasure by throwing a towel at then Suns coach Ainge, who traded Horry to the Lakers less than a week later. Horry: "Anybody who will look will see that I respected Rudy [Tomjanovich, in Houston]. I respected Cotton [Fitzsimmons]. With Danny, I respected him, but I never felt like he was really the coach. I saw him as a guy I had just finished playing against. It never hit me that he was the coach. I guess I found out the hard way." Ainge: "I never felt like Robert felt like he belonged on our team. He communicated that to me.... He said that the only guys he talked with were Sam [Cassell] and Chucky [Brown], and they weren't there anymore. He just didn't fit in with this group of guys."
