Asked for his thoughts on what “Retro Night” would mean for the Suns prior to their 104-96 win over the SuperSonics, Mike D'Antoni responded, “Well at least I know the music will be good.”
D’Antoni couldn’t have been more correct, as all the way up until and even through the contest, fans were treated to a smorgasbord of songs by every artist from Chuck Berry to Billy Joel. But while the wide array of melodies was a nice treat for Suns fans as they celebrated the team’s 40th anniversary, it wasn’t all the organization had in store on the special evening. The 40th Anniversary Suns Team – selected by fan Internet vote – was also unveiled, featuring a group of players almost as diverse as the music played.
