Journal: "Under The Sun(s)"

As a long time fan of the NBA, I've seen many great teams fail to win a championship. Being a Knicks fan alone I've seen 2 teams that should've won a championship (especially in 94'). The last team I really rooted for to win it all was the 2001-02 Sacramento Kings. Chris Webber, Mike Bibby, Peja Stojakovic,Vlade Divac, Doug Christie, Bobby Jackson, George Wallace, and Hedo Turkoglu. They're were more but who cares about Funderburke? Scot Pollard? Yea...No one. That year they had the best record in the league (61-21). Mike Bibby's away jersey was the 1st I ever bought from the NBA Store (still wear it #throwback). They crushed the Jazz and Mavericks in the 1st and 2nd round. The best series I've ever seen was the conference finals versus the Lakers. Robert Horry at the top of the key still hunts me till this day. Kings could've been up 3-1. They ended up losing the series in Game 7. I really wanted Webber & Bibby to win a ring. Unfortunately, it never happened and that team has been dismembered.

Which brings me to the present day. The 2009-2010 Phoenix Suns. The most exciting team in Basketball (quote me). The run and gun high scoring team that learned how to play defense. While everyone argues who's the best point guard Chris Paul, Deron Williams, or Rajon Rondo, Steve Nash is top 5 of the decade. Amare Stoudemire is the 2nd best center in the NBA (Dwight Howard). Grant Hill's storybook comeback and effectiveness at the age of 38? The bench that can shoot lights out? How can you not root for a team like the Phoenix Suns? The Suns are no strangers to the Lakers. Suns vs. Lakers = Game 7. Although LA might've had the upper hand, this could be the year of the underdog. Sweeping the Spurs wasn't a fluke. This team is ready to beat LA. I only hope the Suns could do what the Kings couldn't. I'll wait to buy my Nash jersey tho. Even if the Suns make it to the finals, there's still the Cavs, Magic, or Celtics waiting on the other side (the Hawks don't exist). Play on Playa
