Solar Flares - Suns/NBA Open Thread - Week of Oct 15-21

Just two weeks left until the season starts on All Hallows Eve!

Use this thread to post any Suns or NBA content/links/whatever that you want to discuss.

The floor is open!

Some links to get you started:

The TrueHoop-related blog:

Marcin Gortat wants to prove he's more than a Steve Nash creation | Valley of the Suns | Michael Schwartz

"I believe I'm an experienced player already. I've been in the league a few years by now, and I have other point guards. I have Goran Dragic and Kendall Marshall. I have great passers. I'm quite sure I'll be fine."

One from a newish blog related to si.com:

Elston Turner's Impact | Sun-n-Gun

Ranking 21st in points allowed isn't impressive or even respectable by any means but compared to the points the Suns defense have been giving up the past few seasons it's definitely a great improvement.

And finally from the venerable Paul Coro:

More insight on Wes Johnson | azcentral.com | Paul Coro

At some point, Wes Johnson's shooting will cease being a surprise.

He shot 41 percent from 3-point range after last season's All-Star break, averaged 20.5 points during NBA Summer League and has carried over a torrid finish to training camp by making five 3-pointers in the Suns' first two preseason games.

And as always, check the whole front page of BSotS. There's a ton of new articles every day or so. Make sure you click into and read them all. Sean, Jacob, Jim, Blane and I (and Seth, even!) are excited about the season, and we want to be your one-stop-shop for Suns coverage. The great thing about the new 'cover' style is that we can promote many stories at once.
