The Phoenix Suns have been struggling for a decade, but now they are on the right track, and fans are proud of how this season finished.

These past eight games have been the most meaningful basketball for the Phoenix Suns since the surprise 48-win 2013-14 team and before that, the Western Conference Finals 2009-10 team. The Suns going undefeated in Disney despite all the adversity and doubt thrown their way means more to the fans than the players will ever realize. For the Suns to come out as they did and give the fans hope for the future is amazing.

Even before Disney, Suns fans have been very optimistic for this season, and for a good reason. James Jones has done a tremendous job trying to clean up Ryan McDonough’s mess in a short period of time, and I could not be more grateful for what he has done for this franchise. Jones brought in an experienced pass-first point guard who would be a great leader and fit next to Devin Booker, and a great backup big like Aron Baynes, just to name a couple of the bright moves he has made.

Besides the roster upgrade, the biggest move was the signing of Monty Williams as the Suns’ new head coach. Monty has been the best coach in Phoenix since Alvin Gentry. Hornacek gave us false hope after one season, Watson was a good guy but not a good coach, and Kokoskov was not given a fair chance to prove what he was capable of. Monty took over a team that has been basically in shambles since the departure of Amar’e Stoudemire in the summer of 2010, and he has shown nothing less than promise and hope for the future of the team.

Phoenix Suns fans have many reasons to be proud of this team.

This season has been successful on many levels, but still not as successful as many of us hoped. Ayton was suspended for 25 games after the first game of the season, and unfortunately, the Suns were never able to fully recover from it. Despite the early setback, the Valley Boyz were still good enough to qualify for the restart and came one shot away making the play-in games.

This season has been exceptionally special for our franchise player, Devin Armani Booker. Book has been here since 2015 and has essentially been through it all, from coaching changes, GM changes, all the way to just about a whole new roster every season. Devin has been extremely patient and has improved his play every single year of his career.

Booker has now reached a career-high in wins, points per game, and free throw percentage, all in one season and has cemented himself to the media, and fans as one of the premier talents in this league. Thank you, Devin Booker, for everything.

Although this season has had some very disappointing moments, Suns fans never gave up on them. After every terrible loss, they would come out and play harder and win a game to restore faith in the fans. This team has felt so much different and the props go to the whole organization, from the coaches, the players, the front office, the best equipment manager in the league with Jay Gaspar, the wonderful social media team, and even the not so fan favorite Governor, Robert Sarver. Thank you all for the phenomenal season.

I can not wait for next season, and to see what the future holds for this team.

dark. Next. Ugh. The Valley Boyz season is over
