Good win, too.

Happy Halloween and Happy Home Opener!

It’s game day, folks, and the Suns are taking on the Warriors tonight.

I love Suns vs. Warriors games because I enjoy trash talking to my Warriors fan friend and I get to heckle her with this clip of one of my favorite dunks of all time.

Anyways, here’s to hoping Mike Beasley drops 30 points. Enjoy the game tonight, Suns fans.

Anybody happen to catch the game on NBAtv last night?

I really like this new team.

B*Easy
My beloved Phoenix Suns have officially started the post-Steve Nash era. When the Canadian who facilitated one of the best and most fun stretches in Phoenix Suns history turned heel and left to join the Los Angeles Lakers, it left a team that just 3 seasons ago played in the Western Conference Finals with a huge void. The Suns made a lot of moves this summer to try and fill that hole. Some I liked (getting Scola on one of the best contracts in the NBA was a nice grab) and some I didn’t (I won’t get into it here but I’m not a fan of Goran Dragic).
However, with all the moves my favorite was bringing in the smooth-scoring lefty known as B*Easy aka Michael Beasley. What can I say? I’m a sucker for players who can score with ease. If we had brought him in pre-Hollywood Steve Nash he could have easily averaged 25 points a night. As is, I see him being a huge part of the revamped Suns offense and I’m excited.

Check out the new look of the home court!

It was an ugly season for the Mercury (7-27) but with this big break, things can only get better.

The big grin on Phoenix coach Corey Gaines’ face might have reminded you of Bruce the Shark when he gets a whiff of blood in “Finding Nemo.” The Mercury won the WNBA draft lottery Wednesday. And unless everyone in that organization loses their sanity between now and April, the two-time WNBA champions will add Baylor center Brittney Griner to their franchise.
