Recruiting Robin

During the NBA’s moratorium period – the time allotted for teams to meet with free-agents and negotiate deals – there are a number of different roads an organization can take to woo a player to sign or resign with them. Among the recruiting techniques are midnight phone calls from NBA executives, produced videos on what their organization or city has to offer, and even a face-to-face visits on a player’s front porch. Sometimes, however, a team manages to think of something a little more outside the box. [Read more...]

Assembling the Suns Avengers

As if my Twitter handle @orange_crusader wasn’t an indication of this enough, I am not only an admitted comic book geek, but one who embraces that geekness. To maintain some level of coolness over the years (and to avoid wedgies), I have also presented myself as a sports fan, thus requiring me to learn such complicated terms as “trifecta”, “clutch basket” and “flagrant foul.” [Read more...]

Original Sun Honors MacLeod

Heralded as the “Original Sun,” Ring-of-Honor member Dick Van Arsdale unveiled some of his original artwork for a very special event on Wednesday night.

During halftime of the Suns-Thunder game, Van Arsdale presented his former coach, John MacLeod, with a piece of art to commemorate MacLeod’s own induction into the Ring. With jersey numbers to represent each of the players in the exclusive club, initials to mark the front office executives and a pair of socks in recognition of former athletic trainer Joe Proski, the unique artwork is a tribute to the 13 legends whose faces overlook the court at US Airways Center.

Dark Knights of the Round Table

I can’t speak for our Social Media Specialist, Greg Esposito, but for me, this was never a laughing matter. When “Espo” first informed me that the first six minutes of next summer’s The Dark Knight Rises would be played before Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, I was dead serious when I threw out the possibility of going to the theatre just to see the sneak peek… As in literally leaving after the sneak peek and bailing on the movie altogether.

5 Reasons to Like These Rookies

Finding a diamond in the rough in the NBA draft is a lot easier said than done. It’s rare that a second-round pick pays dividends for a team, but as recent history has shown Suns fans, it isn’t too much of a stretch to believe a player can contribute for a team after being past up on by so many others. [Read more...]

No Substitutions

It won’t show up on any stat sheet (in large part because it technically never happened), and while it may still be early in this series, mark down the halfway point of the second quarter in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals as what could go down as the turning point in this series.

Suns Game of the Decade

With the sun setting on another decade of NBA basketball, I decided to take a look back at the best of the best from the past ten seasons.

However, when you’ve got a two-time MVP in Steve Nash choosing a “Player of the Decade” just doesn’t seem fair.

Meanwhile, when you’ve got a team renowned for its high-flying, high-scoring shenanigans… well, we don’t have enough interns to try and select a “Play of the Decade.”

But “Game of the Decade” is definitely doable and so, well, I did. [Read more...]
