Posted: March 7, 2003 Suns great Alvan Adams shared his feelings with Suns.com about Thunder Dan joining him in the Suns' Ring of Honor. Suns.com: What were your first thoughts when you heard the Suns had drafted Dan Majerle in the summer of 1988? Alvan Adams: It reminded me a little of when I was drafted because when I was drafted I was somewhat of an unknown. I came out a year early and I know there was a little bit of a similar reaction. “Who? Wait a minute, who’s this guy? He’s not big enough to be a big guy.” So I thought of that and I said, “OK, I don’t know who Dan Majerle is either, I never heard of Central Michigan.” Now we all know who Central Michigan is and I think my highlight of watching the Suns after I finished playing was us beating the Lakers in that playoff series, the only time we’ve ever beat the Lakers in a playoff series and Dan was a big part of that.
PLAYERS: Dan Majerle
