WATCH: Shannon Brown uses backboard to set up Gerald Green for dunk

Lets face it: The Phoenix Suns are not going to be a very good basketball this season. In fact, you can argue they will be the worst team when the season ends. The team is relatively young, and will look to build around newly acquired guard Eric Bledsoe and rookie center Alex Len. However, the Suns do have some athleticism on the wings in the form of two well-traveled veterans, Shannon...

Photo credit: maxpreps.com Let me just clarify that tanking for one player is never a smart move. The chances of landing the first overall pick is at best 25%, and every active first overall pick in the NBA who has played at least six seasons (with the exception of Tim Duncan) has switched teams at least once.

The Sacramento Kings recently hired NBA legend, Chris Mullin, as their adviser to the chairman (whatever that means).
