When Kendrick Perkins pointed out the perceived lack of leadership in the 4th quarter without Chris Paul, Smith added that Phoenix appears to lack organization.

In a passionate outburst, Smith exclaimed, “You have a job,” directing his frustration towards head coach Frank Vogel.

This reaction followed a string of losses that the Suns endured after the All-Star break. While they have grappled with injuries, including Bradley Beal’s absence and Jusuf Nurkic missing a game, the Suns have struggled to maintain consistency throughout four quarters of basketball.

Consequently, they have slipped to 8th place in the Western Conference standings, with a challenging schedule looming ahead.

In his tenure spanning 11 seasons as a head coach, Frank Vogel has amassed a 464-413 record and secured a championship with the Lakers in 2020.
