Mornng Sunshine: Phoenix Suns News (March 17)


This is our daily feature here at SunNGun where we scavenge the internet for recent stories related to the Phoenix Suns organization and relay them to you, so we are the one-stop-shopping for all things Phoenix Suns. We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories. The writers at all the other blogs are good and have some interesting information and perspective, but come back here for our take and full coverage of the team.

Dime Magazine: The year of the Dragon: Goran Dragic deserves most improved award

“The time is near. The NBA must right its wrong from the All-Star Game. Goran Dragic deserves to finally be recognized for his stellar play this season. He is well worthy of being named Most Improved Player and ready to hoist up the award for the world to see in all its glory.”

Sports Illustrated: Suns’ Gerald Green a new player after early struggles lead to a formative experience

“Suns guard Gerald Green is in the midst of a career year, albeit one predicated on past failings. He wouldn’t be in Phoenix were it not for his difficulties in Boston, Minnesota, Dallas and Indiana, all of which sent Green into the chasm of NBA irrelevance. He wasn’t merely a fringe player trying to make a living, but a former lottery pick that had failed to latch on with six different NBA teams. Draft spot aside, his only basketball acclaim came by way of his massive vertical leap and a cupcake — inauspicious hallmarks for a spurned player on the verge of falling out of the league entirely.”

Hardwood Paroxysm: A glass half full: Playoffs or not, the Suns are tooled for a great future

“The Phoenix Suns were meant to be one of those latter teams this season; one whose numbers in the loss column dwarfed the lowly digits next to it. But somehow, they defied the laws of tanking by becoming the NBA’s Cinderella story. Goran Dragic jetted his way into the MVP conversation in a resurgent season, Channing Frye bounced back from a heart procedure that nearly put his NBA career to bed, and P.J. Tucker has solidified himself as one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. However, sadly, this might not have a Disney ending.”
