Suns Killers

I wanted to take a look at some regular season Suns killers  from each team.  I'm sure some of  you will disagree with my list and maybe some trolls will disagree with me for not including their favorite players. A troll's opinion is not welcome in this fan post. Now some of these haven't played a whole lot against the Suns but when they did, they scored a lot (or more than they usually do).

I demand you listen to this song while reading this post .

I'm listing the players based when where they are playing now. Not where they played in their prime.
