PLAYERS: Michael Phelps
TEAMS: Phoenix Suns
Michael Phelps is really enjoying retirement. We told you earlier he was playing in a pro-am golf tournament in Phoenix this week. After the sun went down he had to find something to keep him occupied so he headed to the US Airways Center to see the Suns take on the Lakers. After the game ended Phelps followed in Morgan Freeman’s footsteps and decided to hang out with the Suns dance team. Phelps has to be the happiest retired guy in history. He travels to exotic places like the Bahamas and…Phoenix, plays golf, poker and sits court-side at NBA games on a whim. Speaking of which, he saw a hell of a game. The Suns overcame a double digit deficit and beat the Lakers 92-86. Oh, and he’s dating a glorified prostitute. What it must be like to be an Olympic gold medalist.

Suns' defense, intensity fade in loss to Mavs

Suns retro jerseys should be their permanent jerseys

Last night the Phoenix Suns spoiled Steve Nash's return to the place he called home for the better part of the last decade by storming back behind the crazy hair and shot making of Michael Beasley. That's not the most important thing that came out of the Suns' victory. What's most important is that after years of suffering through the ugliest uniforms in professional...

Suns to face Mavs; Nowitzki doubtful

A stirring comeback might have given the Phoenix Suns just the boost they needed. A win over a longtime nemesis could have the same effect. The Dallas Mavericks, though, handled the Suns this past weekend but might not get Dirk Nowitzki back from injury when they try to continue their recent dominance in the series Friday night. Phoenix (16-30) won its first two games under interim...

Beasley helps Suns come back from 13 down to beat Lakers

PHOENIX Steve Nash left a loser in his return to Phoenix. The Phoenix Suns, down 13 points in the third quarter, chipped away at the lead, helped by the fumble-fingered Lakers, then pulled the game out at the end with a 92-86 win Wednesday night at U.S. Airways Center. Michael Beasley broke an 86-86 tie with a driving layup with 44 seconds left. Then Kobe Bryant missed on a drive...

Report: Suns Have No Interest In Josh Smith
