NBA Cult Classics: Phoenix Suns Louis Amundson

PHOENIX - MAY 25: Jared Dudley #3 and Louis Amundson #17 of the Phoenix Suns celebrate after Dudley hit a 3 point shot against the Los Angeles Lakers in the fourth quarter of Game Four of the Western Conference finals of the 2010 NBA Playoffs at US Airways Center on May 25, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. The Suns defeated the Lakers 115-106.

We at SB Nation decided to have a dedicated "theme" day to revel in our team's biggest Cult Hero of all-time. The Suns have more than 40 years of history, but rarely do Cult Heros last decades before being replaced by a new Cult Hero.

Such was the case when Louis Amundson first signed a minimum-salary contract with a second-year team option to play backup PF for the Suns behind All-NBA Amare Stoudemire. Yesterday, you all voted Lou your favorite cult hero (among the choices offered).

Lou was the epitome of scrappy bench player, and fans fell in love. He worked hard, outplayed his talent in many ways and had just enough quirks to be endearing.

So today is LOU AMUNDSON day at BSotS.

Let's spend the day sitting around the campfire relating our favorite memories of Lou from his short Suns stint.

Hit the jump for mine.
