The Phoenix Suns '09-'10 Season..
Ok, I recently posted a hateful message about the Phoenix Suns on another blog and I want to recant. I, like many other Suns fans, were deeply disappointed in last season's performance for many reasons:
- The 'firing' of Mike D'Antoni (call it what you will he was fired)
- The hiring of that old TrailBlazer guy (Terry Porter)
- Trying to play like a boring Eastern Conference team (except Boston and Cleveland)
- Amar'e Stoudemire going down with his vaginal sandinitis
- Steve Nash showing his age
- Not making the playoffs
I was spoiled and didn't really realize what I had here in the Valley of the Suns because I was too caught up in winning the championship. I got away from the true spirit of sports..to have fun. Yes my old teammates would kill me for saying such nonsense, but I really feel that I would rather watch the Suns play their upbeat style and barely miss the finals then even win a championship if it meant them playing like the mostly lifeless defense oriented teams of the East. When I watch the NBA I want to be entertained...and folks the Suns from '04-'08 were the most entertaining team to watch in all of sports. Robert Sarver and Steve Kerr jokes aside, I actually have a little hope for this season. The Suns need to Get Back to Where They Once Belong or This Is The End Beautiful Friends. The players and coaches have said in training camp they are dedicated to get back to their old style. For the love of Buddha let's hope so.
All comments are welcome (unless you are a Lakers fan or a Spurs fan because you guys are hated by me and I am jealous ).
