Channing Frye’s comeback from an enlarged heart has been truly inspiring.

After shaking off the rust, Frye has retaken his position as one of the best at creating space on offense. His three-point stroke is as inconsistent as any sharpshooters, but he has improved to be one of the better rebounders on the team.

He and Goran Dragic have also developed excellent offensive chemistry. The strategy of Dragic going in on the drive, then passing it out to Frye, waiting behind the arc, has achieved great success.

Frye isn’t very young, and his contract is still pricey, so he may eventually be dealt if the Suns see fit. Regardless, there’s no doubt that his medical condition hasn’t derailed his career in any noticeable way.
