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.
“We want to get better” is as cliché a phrase as you’ll find, especially in sports. The Suns turned that cliché into a team-wide trend thanks to 1. A roster full of up-and-comers and undervalued cast-offs 2. A brand of basketball that valued team results over individual output.”
“Focusing on the 18th Overall Pick and what that could bring the Suns is actually much more positive than one would think on the surface. In every draft there is a player that is widely looked at as a Top 10 talent that falls down to the middle of the first round and is available around where the Suns are sitting. Whether that is Avery Bradley at No. 19 in 2010 or Kawhi Leonard at No. 15 in 2011, there is always at least one talent that slides down to a fortunate team. Or a smart team depending on how you look at it.”
