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 posted for you 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.

The people who can do the most to address racism in the sport of basketball — this is the basic discussion wherever this specific and complicated Sterling case stands — must react. Suns owner Robert Sarver has done that, joining Michael Jordan, among others, in condemning any NBA owner who might have a racist perspective.”
“Assists on the court are just part of the job for a professional basketball player. Even big men get a few along the way. They’re just a natural part of the game.

“We know Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe made the Suns who they were this season. And we realize P.J. Tucker deserves an big chunk of credit for helping build a winning culture since the beginning of summer league. (Side note: Tucker was one of the Suns to attend Dragic’s MIP award presentation, and Dragic went out of his way to single out Tucker during his time at the podium.) After that trio, who were the most important players that helped the Phoenix Suns find success in 2013-14? I asked the Valley of the Suns staff in Part 3 of our postseason wrap-up 5-on-5 series.”
