View of current Suns from an old fan

I was a big Suns fan and on this blog for 2 years or so. And have been pulling for the Suns off and on for 25-30 years since I was a kid on the court as a cub scout getting my picture taken with Larry Nance and hoping to meet/watch the Suns Gorilla. I admit to fading off the Suns after Marion/Amare left but still tried here and there to watch them.

I haven't gone to another team, I simply been caught up with life...4 kids...work, etc which is a good thing. I've followed Rubio some, fun to watch. I've followed the Mavs a little since I live in Dallas. But nothing approached my excitement as a Suns fan I used to feel.

I've been watching the last few Suns games and even after losing tonight, I have to say I'm excited about this team again. I love that Nash didn't jump ship to some title contender. (same with Hill). Those 2 players have always been special, on and off the court. Some things have changed from the exciting Suns of 2-3-4 years ago. This team can rebound, this team can play defense. I love that they got Redd, what a great addition, glad to see he is healthy.

I really like Gortat, I really like that Robin Lopez is fighting for rebounds. I saw that movie about Telfair "Through the Fire" and was excited to learn he was a Sun. He's such a good fit, quick, tough, doesn't need to be the star. Can handle the ball under heavy pressure.

I like Nash, what's not to like, the guy is great. But I would prefer Hill or Telfair to be the main ball handler vs 2 or 3 particular teams...Miami being one of them.

Final thought, when I heard Nash was hoping the Suns would make the playoffs this season, I thought why? But after the last 2 weeks, I'm glad to be wrong. The Suns can compete with anyone I think and they're fun to watch again! Do I think they'll win this year. No. Do I want them to...Hell yeah! And with smart, skilled, experienced vets like Hill and Nash and Redd, and with what looks to be a great chemistry again...I'll be pulling for them.
