Markieff Morris Perkinsed Blake Griffin

That’s right, I’m using Kendrick Perkins’ name as a verb now. That’s because Markieff Morris treated Blake Griffin the same way Griffin treated the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins earlier this season, with complete disregard, on a dunk.

If you weren’t paying close enough attention to the Suns’ game against the Clippers Thursday night you might have missed it. That’s because the most monstrous dunk of the year for Phoenix hasn’t exactly been given the praise, at least nationally, that it deserves. [Read more...]

Words, Ballet and the Mind of Steve Nash

Sometimes you find out unique things about your favorite athletes from odd places. We learned Kareerm Abdul Jabbar could act from the movie Airplane. If it weren’t for reality television, we wouldn’t know that Jerry Rice could dance or just how out there Jose Canseco really is. Because of Twitter and JMZ, we learned Jared Dudley makes a pretty good cameraman.

Over the years we’ve learned a lot about Steve Nash from interesting places. If it weren’t for YouTube, we probably wouldn’t know about his zany sense of humor. If it weren’t for ESPN’s documentary series 30-for-30, we may never have seen his series filmmaking side. Now, thanks to clips that were left on the cutting room floor from a new ad campaign by Dove, we’ve gotten even more insight into the mind of the Suns’ assist master. Oh, and maybe the greatest Nash quote of all-time. [Read more...]

All Dudley Does is Win

If Jared Dudley’s month of March continues the way it has gone so far, the Phoenix Suns may hire someone to constantly walk behind him carrying an iPod and speakers with the song “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled playing on loop. Picture a modern day John Cusack from the movie Say Anything if that helps.

That’s because Dudley has averaged 18.6 points and 7.9 rebounds in a month in which the Suns are 5-2, and in two of those victories he has lead the team in scoring. But all of that may pale in comparison to his accomplishment on Monday. [Read more...]

Why Not Peyton Manning to Arizona?

Forget “Tebow Time” and “Linsanity,” Peyton Manning is dominating the discussion across the sports landscape lately. From social media to SportsCenter, and everywhere in between, the former No. 1 pick is all anyone can seem to talk about these days.

Not since Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Aniston has a free-agent hitting the market made this much noise. The question remains though, who will be Angelina Jolie to Manning’s Pitt?

We at wonder, why can’t it be a team that calls Arizona home? [Read more...]

<a href=';src=v5:embed::' target='_new' title='Dan Patrick Show: Grant Hill' >Video: Dan Patrick Show: Grant Hill</a>

Grant was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday. He shared his thoughts on the reason for his career longevity, his time with in Phoenix and which NBA player he’d start a franchise with. Hill also talked about his involvement in the upcoming documentary Duke 91 & 92: Back to Back and whether which will air this Saturday on TruTV.

What makes you root for Grant Hill the most?

The Suns May Have Found Socks 2.0

When you think fashion in the NBA you probably think of long shorts, throwback jerseys, sneakers and the occasional pair of glasses that resemble something that came from the Steve Urkel collection. (Sorry, I won’t name names. SportsCenter does that for me.)

If fans ever talk about players based on what they wear it’s usually about their headbands or their new signature kicks. Rarely do they notice a player’s socks. In the mid 90s Suns fans were the exception. They took note of guard Elliot Perry’s knee-high tube socks. The long white hosiery with the embroidered blue and red NBA logo swallowed his leg from toe to calf like a cotton python. The unique look earned him the simple, yet appropriate, nickname, ‘Socks’.
