If the Suns played soccer, their uniforms would be hot fire

Umm, I meant football. So, Robert Sarver already owns a soccer -- I mean football -- team. Who do we have to talk to to get some mock uniforms made for Devin Booker and Tyson Chandler? Just for, like, a photo shoot or something? ;) If the @Suns played soccer, as imagined by @FreddyFarcelin.What do you think, @RCD_Mallorca? pic.twitter.com/LhmhJ2YHme — Jeramie McPeek...

Phoenix Suns franchise in a pile of muddy rubble, with no sunshine in sight

The Phoenix Suns franchise - fourth winningest franchise in NBA history - has become one of the league's worst with little to no light at the end of the tunnel. And, from the top down, they've got no one to blame but themselves. A team that continually strips itself of all its purple-and-orange loyalists can't expect anything better. Robert Sarver, the managing partner of the ownership...

Elementary? Not quite, but Watson could work out well for the Suns

Earl Watson isn’t a splashy hire for the Phoenix Suns. He will coach his first NBA game at the age of 37. He’s been an assistant coach for only two years since his playing career ended, and only one of those was spent in the NBA Jason Kidd showed that a relatively quick transition from playing to coaching can work, but for every Kidd, there’s a Derek Fisher (and then some)...

New Arena for the Phoenix Suns: Think About the Tradition First

April Autopsy: Phoenix Suns

What’s the most productive thing the Phoenix Suns did this past season? One could make a strong case that shipping Markieff Morris to Washington and getting so much in return — including what will become a lottery pick to stack on top of a likely top-five selection — is the best answer.

While the Suns burn into ashes, the Bucks remain stuck in the muck

It’s one thing when a trade works handsomely for one party but leaves the other party in shambles. It’s quite another matter when a trade really doesn’t work for anyone. As we enter the month of February, the 2016 trade deadline isn’t that far away — barely more than two weeks.
