On this edition of the ValleyoftheSuns podcast, Michael Schwartz, Mike Schmitz and Tyler Lockman discuss the Suns’ recent woes, how much Phoenix misses Leandro Barbosa and who needs to step up during the team’s upcoming brutal stretch.

  • The Z. Man

    Most Suns fans believe that LB only gives the team another scorer.

    True that his scoring is his most obvious contribution. Fans will remember our hard fought win in Houston. “Air Bud” (Chase Budinger) went up for his famous dunk. “Talk softly but carry a big stick.” What does this old political quote have to do with our Brazilian Blur? LB is, like Nash, a competitor who will take on any role needed to win the game. With the game on the line, LB challenged “Air Bud” and stuffed the MUCH bigger (not just taller) opponent before he could slam down what could well have been a game changing dunk.

    LB makes one clutch shot, when needed most, after another, like Nash. Not as good a passer as Nash (like anybody else is?), but he is a team player and does look to pass. With our lack of size, we most need clutch competitors who are athletic, skillful, and can be depended upon to sink a key shot. Sound like anyone we know? When starting along side Nash, the Suns are just about impossible to beat.

    MUST start and ALSO finish with LB. Let’s go SUNS!!!!
