When a player is signed during free agency, all that anyone can hope for is that the player lives up to his expectations. For a coaching staff or a front office, the dream scenario would be if the player were to have a career year.

With that being the case, it appears that Suns point guard Goran Dragic has been a dream signing.

Other than the Clippers’ Chris Paul and the Bucks’ Brandon Jennings, Suns point guard Goran Dragic is one of only three NBA players averaging better than 16.0 points, 7.0 assists and 2.0 steals this season. If his pace continues, the Slovenian playmaker would join only Kevin Johnson and Jason Kidd as just the third Sun in franchise history to reach those numbers for an entire season. [Read more...]

P.J. Tucker the Next Dan Majerle?

It’s a little known fact what is P.J. in P.J. Tucker stands for. That’s because Tucker’s real first name is Anthony: named after his dad. So why aren’t his initials A.J.?

His father, a baseball player, was known for the pop in his bat and thus got the moniker, Pop. That’s how the Suns forward wound up with the nickname Pops Jr., or P.J. for short.

It’s funny because pop is exactly what Tucker has provided the Suns off the bench all season long. His energy and effort have been a large reason why the Suns have made more comebacks this season than Brett Favre and Guns and Roses combined. [Read more...]
