What Phoenix teams need in 140 characters or less

I admit it. I'm jealous.

I'm tired of watching the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Kings. It's bad enough the Phoenix (soon to be Arizona) Coyotes and Phoenix Suns aren't in each championship series but the fact it's San Antonio and LA is grotesque. The next thing you know, San Francisco will win two World Series in three years time.

It's time for a Twitter championship. You get 140 characters to explain what each team needs to win a championship. Remember, these aren't predictions for what will happen but things that need to happen.

SUNS: The hardest part: the star. The Suns have athleticism & assets. We need 2B patient. Suns need to know many of you have been since Barkley

CARDINALS: San Fran has 2 slip & Seattle get complacent. Bucannon has 2 learn quick. Nail the 2015 draft. Make playoffs this year. Super Bowl in SF

COYOTES: Dump Ribeiro. Mike Smith must raise his consistency. Sell out on defense like years ago. One real life goal-scorer wouldn't hurt

D-BACKS: Health. A 3B's bat that doesn't disappear every April. Bradley not getting hurt/traded. A set line-up. 3 players that bat .300

ASU: Massive run-stuffer on the D-line. A play-making LB. A national attention getting year from DJ Foster

Your turn. Tweet me @doug987fm with your team needs.

When you started with Bonneville Phoenix: 1st Doug & Wolf Show: 1/2/07

Favorite sports memory: Goldschmidt's triple icing the 2011 NL West title because it was a daddy-daughter day at the ballpark and Bellbrook vs. Dunbar '89 when I hit my one varsity HR.

Favorite all-time athlete: as a kid, an adult, Grant Hill

Favorite sports movies: Field of Dreams

Best sports road trip: My Saturday...Braves vs. Reds Sunday Night...Cooperstown Monday through Thursday morning...Jennifer sings the Anthem Thursday night at Fenway... Sox/White Sox triple play and cycle in the same game for only the second time in baseball history...Saturday night Clemens strikes out 9 through 7 but the bullpen blows it and the crowd is furious.

Best game I've ever seen live: Suns/Spurs Game 5 2007 Western Semis (the game w/o Amare & Boris). Hated the outcome but loved the experience.
