    For the first time in a long time, the Phoenix Suns will have substantial room under the NBA’s salary cap heading into an offseason.

  • Gentry gets no respect in Coach of the Year voting

  • Former Sun treated after punching glass in locker room

    If former Phoenix Suns forward Amare Stoudemire was looking to get his frustration out after going down 2-0 in the series with the Miami Heat, he might have thought about choosing a softer target.

    Steve Nash’s iconic legacy was cemented Wednesday night in Phoenix when droves of fans chanted the name of their beloved superstar.

  • Suns finale all about Steve Nash

    PHOENIX — The crowd chanted. “We want Steve. We want Steve. We want Steve.” Wednesday night’s game between Phoenix and San Antonio was the end of the line for the 2011-12 Suns, and possibly the end of the road for Steve Nash in the Valley. So, the fans wanted one more look at their point […]
  • Reflecting on a legend

    It may be too soon, but what kind of legacy is Steve Nash leaving behind?

  • Gentry: Early mistakes kept team from playoffs

    The Phoenix Suns could have been in a much different spot if this were an 82 game season.

  • Time for Suns and Nash to part ways

    The Suns made me look bad by failing to reach the playoffs. I’ve had their backs all season, writing multiple times that not only will they reach the postseason, but they’ll also be a dangerous underdog once they get there. Good thing I’m not paid by my accuracy rate. At least I hope not. There […]
  • Suns made life without Nash tough on themselves

    Was it worth it? Three years or so ago the Phoenix Suns had a decision to make: Trade Amare Stoudemire before he likely left as a free agent, or make one last run with him, future be damned. They decided to make one final run, and were rewarded with a trip to the Western Conference […]
  • Five reasons why the Suns aren’t in the playoffs

    Since the Phoenix Suns were eliminated from playoff contention Tuesday by the Utah Jazz, something must have gone wrong. But what? Actually there were a variety of reasons why. Here are five reasons for why the Suns aren’t participating in the 2012 postseason. 1. No star offensive player: A team cannot continue to have success […]
  • Six games that really sunk the Suns

    On the surface, you can look at Tuesday night’s 100-88 loss to the Utah Jazz as the game that killed the Phoenix Suns’ 2011-12 playoff aspirations. And, in a way, you’d be right. The Suns played without Channing Frye, who was sidelined with a shoulder injury, and got just three minutes of playing from Grant […]
  • Suns head to Utah in control of playoff destiny

    Two roads will lead the Suns back to the playoffs after a one year absence. Both require a win in Utah Tuesday. “We are a now in a must win situation…if we want to keep our season going,” said head coach Alvin Gentry. “We know the magnitude of the game. We know that we’re in […]
  • Frye, Hill uncertain for game at Utah

    Earlier this season the Suns played the New Jersey Nets without Steve Nash and Grant Hill and lost, 110-103. To this point, that mid-January game remains the only game in which the Suns played minus two starters because of injury. However, a second such occurrence may happen in Utah Tuesday. Channing Frye (shoulder) and Grant […]

    Saturday was a tough day for the Phoenix Suns. Alvin Gentry’s team lost 118-107 to the Denver Nuggets, making their path to the playoffs a little bit more difficult.

  • Suns ‘due for a win’ vs. Nuggets

    The Suns next “biggest game of the season” comes Saturday when the Denver Nuggets visit for a rare matinee game at US Airways Center. Denver has won five of the last six meetings, including the first two this season. “I think we’re due for a win,” said Steve Nash, who had 14 points and 11 […]
  • Suns shedding ‘soft’ label

    The Phoenix Suns have relinquished their title as the NBA’s softest team. Even though it wasn’t pretty the Suns got the ugly, physical win over the playoff-bound Clippers 93-90 Thursday night. With 6:13 to go in the fourth, emotions were running high when Robin Lopez fouled Blake Griffin hard as he was about to dunk […]
  • NBA Insider: Steve Nash likely to stay in PHX

    Outside of the Phoenix Coyotes’ ownership saga, the longest-running sports drama in the Valley has surrounded Steve Nash and whether the two-time MVP will stay with the Suns.
