No Passing This “Rock” for Nash

For an NBA player, sightseeing is an accepted means of passing times between games on a long road trip. Of course, when you’re Steve Nash, it’s easy to be the sight to be seen.

The Suns’ playmaker spent his off-day in New York City this week at Rockefeller Center as a guest of NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” Tuesday night. [Read more...]

Suit Up, All-Star Fans

 

While the old saying “It’s the clothes that make the man” was probably first uttered by somebody who was pretty full of himself as he was staring into a mirror, there is something to that, however.

For instance, how impressive would say Superman or Batman be, out saving the world while decked out in a mesh tank top and long shorts? [Read more...]

J-Rich Joins Suns.com Blogging Team

What’s going on world please tell me you all watched that Steelers game! Unfortunately I was on a plane but it’s all good, we got Saginaw in the Super bowl. I am extremely excited and happy for Lamar and the Woodley family. I don’t want to say too much they are playing against Arizona and I do live here LOL. Arizona also deserves a Congratulation on their division title. I know what its like to turn around a losing organization, so I think that it’s going to be a good game. We’re going to have to talk about the scheduling next year, it seems like were playing during every game. Last year was cool we played the Suns the same weekend as the Super bowl. Man!! That was one of the most hype crowds that I’ve ever seen. If I ever got another chance to I would definitely do it again. Hopefully Wood and I both will be bringing home rings. [Read more...]

One day prior to the dawn of a new presidency and the start of a new chapter of history in our great country, there is turmoil within your Phoenix Suns.  A divisive force has ripped through the team and franchise that even Steve Nash, the NBA’s version of Kurt Waldheim, can’t smooth over.  It’s not about politics, playing time or touches on the offensive end.  It’s about the Super Bowl.

As Tom Leander pointed out in the Phoenix Suns’ broadcast against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday morning, it didn’t seem like the Suns were all the way awake when the game started at 10:30 Sunday morning.  But with six minutes left in the first quarter, the team finally woke up and found their rhythm.

Movin' on Up

 

Yes, there was a little extra spring in the ol’ step today, and the sky seemed even sunnier than usual.

That’s because tonight’s game had a little more personal anticipation attached to it. Namely, Suns.com finally got some front-row love at the game… okay second row, but for the first time the official online home of the Suns got to see things up close and personal with lower-level press box seating.
