We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully posted for you in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories.

Valley of the Suns: Goran Dragic’s MIP award helps the Suns move on

“That’s where the Suns’ relationship with Goran Dragic, the NBA’s newly-crowned Most Improved Player, begins. Learning English was Dragic’s first hurdle when the Suns finally handed over another $500,000 to his European squad as part of a buyout agreement. The next was getting accustomed to the speed and physicality of the NBA as a rail-thin 22-year-old. It was ugly at first.”

Bright Side of the Sun: Phoenix Suns potential pursuit of Kevin Love will be complicated by contract status, potential exodus in 2015

“The Phoenix Suns want to supplement their team with a top-10 NBA talent this summer, such as Minnesota’s Kevin Love. But how far would they go in that pursuit?”
“Expectations are a line we create in our heads for something with the hope that they are exceeded and the fear that they will not be met. They exist in all walks of life. In the 2013-2014 NBA Season the Phoenix Suns were not supposed to win more than 21 games total. Then they went out and did that on January 15th. Odds and expectations are very different.”
