Phoenix Suns players, executives, and coaches all stepped up to the podium earlier today, answering questions to participate in the often boat-rocking expedition that is NBA media day.

Although league health and safety protocols kept Devin Booker away from the affair, almost every other figure integral to Phoenix’s team made an appearance to give their input on a variety of subjects. The platform allowed the most Suns to make their first public appearances since their crushing NBA Finals loss a few months ago, and to start looking onto the 2021-22 NBA season.

Training camp starts for the Suns tomorrow, and they begin their first of four preseason games against the Sacramento Kings on October 4. As it stands now, their regular season opener sits just 23 days away, tipping off on October 20.

Also at this point, the Suns own the sixth best odds to win the NBA Finals this coming season, sitting at +1600, right behind the Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, and Brooklyn Nets. Needless to say, a lot lies on the line this year for the Valley Boys.

But the Suns discussed a great deal today, including topics ranging from the pandemic, all the way to free agency decisions. Swingman Jae Crowder even tried on his stand up comedy hat, providing quite a few jokes to go around.

With every word spoken though, the Suns revealed a great deal to the public. While bringing into account all that we just learned about the team, these three takeaways stand out amongst the pack.
