Phoenix Suns: Regular Season Review and Awards
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher at Hoopstuff…
Record: 25-57- 15th in West- 27th in NBA
Review: The Phoenix Suns, in their first post Steve Nash season, were about as pathetic as they were expected to be. They were 21st in the NBA in offense and 26th in the NBA in defense, so they could not score or defend, which is why they could not win. They do not have a single player that can be thought of as a franchise cornerstone, or any elite young talent, so their roster looks as painfully dull. After so many years of playoff basketball, the rebuild is officially underway.
MVP: Goran Dragic: 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 7.4 assists
- On most teams, these stats would be those of a team’s third best player, but the fact that Dragic was by far their best player, says how bad this team is. It was not Dragic’s fault, who led the team in points, assists and steals, but if this is your best player, your franchise is doing something wrong.
