I have been surprised over the first few weeks of the season to see how unhappy Suns fans are.
It makes me wonder just what it would take to make folks satisfied with this team. The Suns are 9-2 and off to one of their best starts ever.
They have had their issues - notably a horrible performance against the Lakers that I had the misfortune of attending.
But aside from that, they dropped one to a very good Atlanta team that matches up well againt Phoenix (ever more so without Amare) and haven't yet reached their full stride. And they know it. They aren't content with where they are and they are working to both improve and get to full stregnth for the first time this year.
Sure, they have their weaknesses on the glass and letting bad teams hang around. But overall at this point in the season what more do fans realistically expect from this team?
30 point blow out every night?
Does anyone doubt that this team is better then last year and fully capable of winning it all?
Would anyone rather be in New York with Starbury and that circus, Miami w/ a fading Shaq or even Dallas where you just know that you are one Dirk away from choke-burg?
