For the first time since 2009, the Phoenix Suns are interesting.
No longer are they a veteran-led team just spinning its wheels hoping to squeeze one last playoff push out of an era that had run its course. Gone are the likes of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, the final remnants of a Suns squad that just couldn’t quite get it done.
The year Joe Johnson broke his face, the injuries, the suspensions, the disappointment. It all happened. It’s all in the past.
The Phoenix Suns as you knew them are gone, and in their place a team that no one can say they know won’t be any good or are sure can’t compete.
In fact, the only thing that’s certain is that for the first time in the Lon Babby/Lance Blanks tenure, this is their team.
