The Phoenix Suns have had a terrible decade in terms of record, but they have still had a number of solid players to put together an All-Decade Team for the 2010’s.
Note: All stats are through December 18, 2019.
Breath in this number: with six games remaining in the decade, the Phoenix Suns have a 316-479 record since the calendar turned to January 1, 2010.
A 39.7% win percentage over 795 games is easily the worst win percentage over a ten-year period in franchise-history.
And yet, bookending the decade of misery was a really good team to open the 2010’s, and now a burgeoning, young team to close it out.
The 209-10 and 2019-20 teams alone actually help to develop the majority of the major building blocks of a solid All-Decade team, a number of All-Stars and hopefully future All-Stars that comprise a very balanced All-Decade roster.
That balance is actually a very interesting trait of this past decade Phoenix Suns teams that the, which it hadn’t really ever had in it history prior.
But would any of those stand out over the course of time as being one of the best centers in franchise history?
Shaq, possibly. Although aging fast, he was still a good player when he came to the Suns.
But at least from the perspective of longevity and youth, this past decade has been one that the franchise has had a renaissance of sorts at the position, something that has made this All-Decade team a truly unique one in the franchise’s history.
