Steve Nash: The Best Phoenix Sun Ever?

Yes the offseason here in AZ is boring, the heat is miserable and the Suns news isn't exactly plentiful. 

So here goes another one of those, "let's post a little something to keep us from nodding off at work" posts.

If Steve Nash isn't the best Sun of all time, who is?

Consider what Barkley did for the franchise: their latest and second finals appearance occurred after his acqusition. STAT was a good player who made great plays and had some huge playoff games, spending all of his career here until a couple months ago. KJ was nearly a career Sun, led them to many many playoff appearances, he was the heart and soul for years.

Here's a little something to help you out, if you need some help with numbers.

Food for thought:

  • Alvan Adams leads the franchise in minutes and games played
  • Walter Davis leads the franchise in scoring, field goals made and attempts
  • Mark West leads the franchise in field goal percentage (but never took a shot outside the paint as I recall)
  • Shawn Marion is second in total rebounds all time and first in defensive rebounds
  • Kevin Johnsons is the all time franchise leader in assists
  • Steve Nash leads the franchise in free throw percentage and 3-pt field goals and is second in assists
  • Charles Barkley is second all time in scoring average

Who else can you think of and let us know what your criteria is for your selection.
