PHOENIX On the irony scale, Thursday's news conference at US Airways Center should check in as a 10. The star of the show was Goran Dragic, who was being reintroduced to a pack of reporters that wasn't exactly thrilled to see him leave 17 months ago.
Back on Feb. 24, 2011, the Suns shipped The Dragon and a first-round pick extracted from the Orlando Magic in the Marcin...
