So I'm like the only one that cares about the Suns, because I'm not an entire bandwagon. I care about my hometown team. They're doing pretty good, surprisingly. Mainly in part of because of Eric Bledsoe. I expected him to help the Suns a lot, but not this much. Right now, he's putting up averages of 21 points, eight assists, and five rebounds. He's 6'1" and he's averaging five rebounds? Daang. He is very efficient, too, shooting 50%. He's added in some clutch-ness with a game winning three over Utah. I was pretty mad yesterday when Coach Hornacek decided to shoot a game-winning three with Gerald Green instead of Bledsoe.
The Suns' fresh legs and athleticism may just keep them in the Playoff race. We have two great fast point guards in Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. We have a young center in Alex Len and a surprising beast in the post, Miles Plumlee, and soon we'll have Emeka Okafor. We can expect more to come from Markieff Morris who just came off a career game. P.J. Tucker is a very underrated player with his hustle on defense and his shooting abilities.
For their own good, they shouldn't be as good as they are right now. With a stacked 2014 draft class containing players like Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, a lottery pick would be perfect for the Suns.
