Nobody has summed up the Suns Fortunes better than veteran Eric Piatkowski. “The Polish Rifle,” a 13-year NBA veteran stated, “As long as superman stays healthy, we could win a championship.”

It was never more evident than Tuesday Night in L.A, as “Superman” Steve Nash returned to the lineup after missing 41/2 games due to an inflammation in his right shoulder. Nash returned versus the Clippers and instantly re-established the Suns moxie, their breathtaking style of play. During his absence the Suns looked quite ordinary, suffering through a three-game losing streak. Nobody, but nobody in the league changes the personality of a team like Steve
Sometimes you can take for granted what he does, only to see in the first five minutes vs. the Clips, that he is the system, he is the one who makes it all work! If your vote for MVP is based on how one player changes the entire personality, the entire fortunes of a team, Steve is your man!
Sports Illustrated in their midwinter break claims that Nash has the inside track for his third straight MVP Award, unless his friend Dirk Nowitzki’s Dallas Mavs significantly outdistance the Suns for the league’s best record.
“Stevie Wonder” is back and as long as he stays healthy, he will not be dethroned by his friend, Dirk.
