The Phoenix Suns haven’t had a lot of success as of late, but they have and have had some very good players. Let’s walk through who would play for the All-Time Suns team.
Despite never winning a championship and their recent decade of regular-season-only play, the Phoenix Suns are still a very successful franchise, ranking 7th all-time in win percentage and making the playoffs 29 times in their 51 full seasons played.
The Suns have also had some great names play for the team: Grant Hill, Shaquille O’Neal, and Steve Nash to new name a few. Although some may have not been what they once were during their time with the Suns, they still contributed during their time in the Valley.
So what is the All-Time Phoenix Suns team, both starters, and reserves? Wondering which NBA team would be the most dominant with their all-time greats is fun to think about.
Here is my All-Time team for the Phoenix Suns:
Let’s start with the backcourt. Of course, for my point guard I’m going with, in my opinion, the undebatable greatest Sun ever and an all-time great, ’06-’07 Steve Nash. Nash won 2 MVP awards in Phoenix and finished 2nd in MVP voting in 2007 (he should have won it). Nash made the All-Star game that season and the All-NBA 1st team.
Steve Nash was one of the best playmakers in the NBA, a knockdown shooter, as efficient as they come, and one of the best teammates you could ask for. Nash put up 18 points a game with 11 assists on elite 53/45/89 shooting splits. Starting my Suns team around him is the best and easiest decision I could make.
Next to Nash at Shooting Guard, I’m going with ’19-’20 Devin Booker. For me, it was hard to decide between Booker and Majerle, but ultimately I chose Devin. Booker has shown to be perfect alongside Nash: he can shoot the 3, create his own shot, drive against anybody, is a severely underrated passer, one of the most efficient players in the NBA today, has the killer mentality and can run an offense when asked.
Averaging 26/4/6 on 48/36/91 shooting is what led Devin Booker to his 1st All-Star appearance this season. Pairing the skills of Nash and Booker in the backcourt would be a tough night for a defense night in and night out.
