A smattering of Suns social media

So the one year the Suns miss the playoffs, the Spurs go in the tank early. And to think, it’s a year ending with an odd number, too. Sure, missing Manu killed them, but Dallas just played really well in that series. It’s kind of amazing that a team that Suns fans were expecting to […]

Kerr, Suns set to embark on critical offseason

PHOENIX – I’ll admit it, I was in denial about the 2008-09 Phoenix Suns. No matter how many times they lost to bad teams, no matter how many times they lost at home and no matter how often they didn’t look like the Phoenix Suns of recent vintage, I still believed they were the same […]
