Outsider with a question...

Okay, so I'm a Warriors fan, and normally I do my posting on GSoM, but I think that Phoenix has potentially the most interesting team as far as range of possibilities go, for next season, so here I am.  Where do you folks see the Suns next year?

It seems to me that it has become a necessity to have a complete style of play overhaul and I'm sure I'm not alone in that opinion.  I wish that it wasn't true.  In the past few years I have loved watching the Suns play, I have.  For a team outside of the bay, I could not have respected and enjoyed that team more.  I sort of viewed the Suns as a member of the "basketball as its meant to be played family" along with my beloved Warriors and to an extent, the Washington Wizards.  Unfortunately, the personell just is not there for the style of play that I so enjoy.  That said, Steve Nash's back might be thanking everything that is holy that the games will slow down some.

Now, if Amare keeps making progress and becomes an almost-Dwight Howard, which is all any big without a cape can hope for, I can see this team contending again.  If healthy.  That's a big if.  There are a lot of injury risks on the team, which is one reason why D'Antoni might not be there anymore.  His style of play wasn't a problem for the health of his players in the past, but do you really want Grant Hill, Shaq and Nash playing more possessions than they need to?

So, I guess I'll leave it with the main questions on my mind.

-Where in the West do the Suns finish this year?

-Do they have the defenders to play a slower pace?

-Can Shaq and Hill hold up for an entire season?

-(Bonus) Who hates Robert Horry more, Suns fans or Kings fans?
