About Greg Esposito

Hi, my name is Greg Esposito, my friends call me Espo and I’m a Phoenix Suns-aholic. I also happen to be the team's Social Media Specialist as well as one of the online content creators. You'll find my sarcastic musings here on as the Suns Retorter.


    It’s great to have you in the NBA Hamed. I’m a Sacramento resident, fan of the Kings, and former intern with the organization but a fan of the globalization of the NBA as well. Sports have an amazing way of bringing people together no matter what our differences and you have the ability to be a great ambassador to the league and our respected countries alike. Good luck in Phoenix and take it easy on our Kings when you visit Sacramento.
