Looking back at ‘The Second Coming’

September 8th, 2012 · 6 Comments

If you were an NBA fan, a sneaker aficionado, or a television owner in 2007, you probably saw this commercial at least 30 times. This one-minute ad, intended to sell sneakers to the masses, was a seminal moment in NBA history. For Nike, it announced the launch of the Air Force 1 25th anniversary edition. […]

Former Suns fill the top career earners list

September 3rd, 2012 · 19 Comments

So our friends over at Warriors World published a list of the top 100 career earners in NBA history. It should come as no surprise that 18 former Phoenix Suns made the list (I’ve listed them all at the bottom of the page.) This large purple and orange contingent says a great deal about the […]

Amare Stoudemire’s New York misery and a look back at the Summer of 2010 with hindsight

May 2nd, 2012 · 23 Comments

I feel bad for Amare Stoudemire. Today he was rightly lambasted for being on the wrong end of a fight with a fire extinguisher, as The Wall Stree Journal so colorfully illustrates. The resulting laceration of his palm likely ends his season two or three games early and puts the Knicks one more player down […]

Phoenix Suns notes: Nash, Amare and scheduling fun

January 22nd, 2012 · 16 Comments

The one story that won’t go away this season features this simple yet excruciating question: Will the Suns trade Steve Nash, and if so what can they get for him? Every time they lose a few games — as the Suns recently did in dropping five straight — the Nash whispers will grow a little […]

How the Phoenix Suns shut down Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony

January 19th, 2012 · 13 Comments

It’s no surprise to see Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony have inefficient shooting nights. Even Spike Lee would admit that STAT (40.8 FG%) and Melo (41.1 FG%) are high-volume chuckers with awful shot selection. But it was somewhat shocking to see a Phoenix Suns team that just allowed 118 points to the Derrick Rose-less Chicago […]
