  • Can Suns build around Nash if he stays?

    The Phoenix Suns have been building around Steve Nash pretty much since the day he signed with them in 2004. Looking for bigs who could roll to the basket and shooters who could hit from three, the Suns have always tried to find players who could compliment the two-time league MVP. Though 38 and nearing […]
  • Lin is a top point guard but Nash is not?

    Linsanity has taken over America, prompting some to ask where the sensation ranks among the NBA’s best point guards. An ESPN poll asks fans to decide, pitting New York’s Jeremy Lin against Chicago’s Derrick Rose, LA’s Chris Paul and Boston’s Rajon Rondo. One other selection, dubbed “someone else,” is also available. And that’s where they […]
  • Suns face back-to-back-to-back set

    Jared Dudley remembers the last time he played three games in three days: the 2006 ACC Tournament. After successive wins over Maryland and North Carolina, Dudley’s Boston College Eagles fell to top-seed Duke, 78-76 in the championship. “That third game,” he said before pausing. “I’m telling you, it’s a beast. It’s definitely a beast.” Dudley […]
  • Suns have home court disadvantage

    Whether the sign outside read “America West Arena” or “US Airways Center” as it does now, the building in downtown Phoenix in which the Suns play their home games has always served as an advantage. Until now. The Suns lost for the seventh time in front of their fans Thursday night, dropping their overall home […]
  • Suns lack fourth quarter scoring punch

    They say it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. If that’s true, then the Suns have it backwards. In their last three games, the Suns are averaging 30 points in the first quarter. However, they’re scoring just over half as much in the fourth quarter (15.7 points), getting outscored 72-47 in the final […]
  • Steve Nash named an All-Star reserve

    Steve Nash will be going to his eighth All-Star game after all. Not voted in as a starter, the Suns’ point guard was selected as a reserve by the Western Conference coaches. Averaging 15.1 points and an NBA-best 10 assists per game, Nash is playing as well as he ever has — including when he […]
  • Former Suns GM: Nash would never ask for a trade

    If Steve Nash ever wanted to be traded, there’s only a few people around who would probably know about it. Former Suns GM Steve Kerr is one of them, because not only was he in charge of the team’s roster for a time, but he also was the one who signed the point guard to […]
  • Nash deserves All-Star game, also needs rest

    The selections for the 2012 NBA All-Star reserves will be announced Thursday night, and Steve Nash will find out if he’ll play in the game for an eighth time. But, with the high amount of the games the Suns are left to face in the rest of the season, Suns coach Alvin Gentry is unsure […]
  • Suns tinker with rotation, leave Warrick and Brown on the bench

    The Phoenix Suns have won their last three games, and while things seem to be going well for the team, the same can’t be said for Hakim Warrick and Shannon Brown. Regulars in the rotation early in the season, neither has played the last two games, and have now found themselves out of the rotation. […]
  • Babby: We’re trying to build a culture brick-by-brick

    The Phoenix Suns are one of the NBA’s most successful franchises, posting a 1,965-1,554 record across nearly 44 seasons and only missing the playoffs 14 times. However, they’ve never won an NBA Championship, and they don’t appear to be anywhere close to that elusive first title this season. Still, it should come as no surprise […]
  • NBA analyst knows Suns are in tough spot with Nash

    Steve Nash is presenting the Suns with an interesting problem. Nash, at 38, is averaging 15.1 points and 10 assists per game on .559 shooting. He hit the game-winning shot Tuesday in Milwaukee, and is playing about as well as he ever has. However, the Suns are still on the outside of the playoff race […]
  • Suns’ Markieff Morris to play in Rising Stars game

    Suns rookie Markieff Morris has been a pleasant surprise this season, averaging 7.2 points and five rebounds per game. The 13th pick in the draft out of Kansas, Morris was selected as one of nine rookies to play in the NBA’s Rising Stars Game on All-Star weekend. Morris becomes the seventh player in franchise history […]
  • Nash celebrates 38th birthday in style

    When you’re a child, it seems like the whole world caters to your every whim on your birthday. Presents, parties, special meals prepared, phone calls from relatives — you get the idea. When you get into your late 30s, the special nature of a birthday wears off. It sadly becomes just another day at the […]
  • Happy homecoming: Redd helps Suns down Bucks

    The only way that Michael Redd’s Milwaukee homecoming could have been better would have been if the Bucks actually rolled out a red carpet. The 11-year vet sparked Phoenix’s second unit, scoring 10 points in the first three and a half minutes of the second quarter, helping the Suns down the Bucks 107-105. Redd admitted […]
  • Michael Redd returns to Milwaukee as a Sun

    Only a handful of players have left as indelible an impression on the Milwaukee Bucks franchise as Michael Redd has. Redd wore the green and red (and at times, purple) of the Bucks for 11 seasons and trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Glenn Robinson and Sidney Moncrief on Milwaukee’s all-time scoring list. So it’ll be a […]
  • At 38, Steve Nash is playing like few have

    Happy birthday, Steve Nash. The Suns’ star turned 38 Tuesday, and to celebrate he will lead his team in Milwaukee against the Bucks. Phoenix is looking for its third consecutive win, a feat the team has not accomplished this season. However, as rare as a Suns winning streak is, what’s even more difficult to find […]
  • Report: Steve Nash has no interest in being traded

    All along the Suns have maintained that they have no interest in trading star point guard Steve Nash, and would only part with him if he asked to be dealt. That hasn’t happened — at least not yet. According to a report by CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger, the Suns would accommodate Nash’s wish to be traded, […]
  • Suns start brutal stretch in Atlanta

    They may not be racking up wins at the desired pace, but the Phoenix Suns are definitely about to rack up some serious frequent flier miles. Alvin Gentry’s team will take to the court seven times in six different cities in 10 days, a brutal stretch that begins Monday night in Atlanta against the Hawks. […]
  • Suns get big contribution from Redd in win

    There was a bit of a ripple around the league when the Phoenix Suns signed free agent veteran guard Michael Redd to a contract in late December. After all, Redd had been an NBA All-Star, a member of the gold medal- winning U.S. Olympic team at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, and a career […]
  • Al McCoy doesn’t see Suns parting with Nash

    The voice of the Phoenix Suns Al McCoy is weighing in on the future of Steve Nash. Nash’s age-defying performance against the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday — in which he broke the Suns’ franchise record for assists and dropped 30 points in the process — showed the two-time MVP is as dominant as ever. So […]
