As you may have noticed, we here at ValleyoftheSuns have taken this offseason to transform our corner of the web from essentially a one-page blog to a multi-page web site.
That transformation began with the re-designed site in June and continues today with a number of additions to the blog that can be found in the navigation bar at the top of the site.
The most exciting addition comes in the form of player profiles for all 2010-11 Phoenix Suns. These profiles include all the typical information you would expect out of a player page — such as stats, a picture and biographical information — as well as advanced stats dating back three years (for the veterans at least), a Twitter feed for the players who possess one, a YouTube highlights package video and our season outlook for each particular Sun. In the future we also hope to add links to articles on ValleyoftheSuns about each respective player.
The new web site also includes Phoenix Suns salary information so you have a go-to source when you want to start projecting future moves, a roster and a current schedule as well as schedules from the past two seasons with links to the ValleyoftheSuns game stories from those respective games in case you ever want to check out what we had to say about some showdown with the Lakers in 2008.
We have also added an About Us page so you can get to know the writers behind this site a little better, an advanced stats page that acts as a glossary for the advanced stats in the player profiles (not to mention to provide a baseline for discussion on the site) as well as archive pages by month, category and staff writer.
This week we also celebrated our 1,000th post going live, something we are proud of being that the site is not even 22 months old.
During the first two seasons of ValleyoftheSuns’ existence, we’ve strived to become a go-to source of Phoenix Suns news and analysis. With these site additions, we hope to also become a source of everything else you might want to know about the Suns.
