Valley of the Suns: Kevin Johnson: ‘My story is a Phoenix story’

“Kevin Johnson never expected all of this. Coming out of a poor northern California neighborhood, he never dreamed of getting to the NBA, let alone be one of the most electrifying players in the league for many years. From 1988-1997, Johnson averaged 19.8 points and 10 assists per game as he led the Suns to the playoffs every single year, including a berth in the 1993 NBA Finals. Johnson is grateful for his time in the desert and believes his current success outside of basketball can be traced back to his time in purple and orange. “My story is a Phoenix story,” Johnson said on Sunday, when he returned to Phoenix.”

The Jazz blew past the Phoenix Suns 109-86 and looked like they were actually having a good time on the court. Fans saw high-flying dunks and phenomenal ball movement as seven Jazz players hit double figures. Jazz forward Gordon Hayward finished the game with 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, just one shy of a triple-double after playing 37 minutes.”
