The Suns are in a awkward position. One that nobody expected them to be in. They have a team that was clearly rebuilding before the season now legitimately competing for a playoff spot, and not just the 8th seed either. They have a "star player" in Eric Bledsoe who has an injury, might not play the season and is looking for a max contract after this season. They have a star guard who is equally as good at the point as he is at the shoot, who plays with a bowling ball for an elbow, who can shoot from anywhere on the floor, received all-star consideration and is about the nicest guy you can find around ( remind you of anyone ? ). The awkward position the Suns are in; is the position to have to make so many important decisions so soon.
They need to decide if they want to make a move for playoff caliber talent to add to the team. Is there one out there that would allow them to keep most of the team together ? They need to decide what to do with Bledsoe. Can they win without him ? Most of all, they need to decide what to do with Dragic. Can they live without him ? I don't think so. In the end, the Suns need to decide what direction to take the franchise in and decide what kind of franchise they are going to be.
I think that the Suns decisions, up until the trade deadline, is really going to tell us what kind of organization they are. My hope is that they are the type of an organization who can really put together talent, can make great in-season moves and challenge for a championship.
Personal note: Mr. Sarver, please give Dragic the $1M he missed out on unjustly. I promise to by another ticket if you do.
