Thanks to RMason for the new name of this weekly open thread!
This thread will start the week on the front page, but also be in the fanposts section so you can find it easily all week long. We won't stop writing feature posts - look for those as well.
There are some storylines that might not get featured this week at the time you want to discuss them:
3) the effect of knowing results before NBC shows the TV coverage
7) Anything else NBA/Suns on your mind
