Suns crap you need, Suns crap you don't need, Suns crap nobody needs. All awaiting your bid on eBay.
Let 'em hang in this uniform set from Phoenix's second round draft pick in 1990 out of Cal State Fullerton, Cedric Ceballos. "Ice" made his presence felt early with the Suns. In just his fourth game he poured in 32 points on 12 of 15 shooting in 23 minutes against the Nuggets. Ceballos would play significant minutes off the bench, scoring 34 in his top rookie performance, again beating up on Denver. For accuracy's sake, this was a bad Nuggets squad. They yielded north of 130 points for the 1990-91 campaign.
You get all the bells and whistles with this one. The coveted jersey, the less coveted short shorts, and the lusted after letter of authenticity straight from the Phoenix Suns. Does that make it worth five grand? Maybe to someone. That someone's probably not you. Let's find something a little more budget friendly.
We all love KJ more anyway, and you don't want those shorts. Save yourself a cool $3000 and pick up this Kevin Johnson game used jersey for a fraction of the cost. When reading the description of the item the first thing that jumped out at me was the seller's exclamation that the piece "Has Nick Vanos Death Patch!" Vanos was a 1985 Suns draft pick out of Santa Clara who was tragically killed in a plane crash just two years into his professional career. Maybe a little too much enthusiasm for the patch, bruh.
This jersey comes from KJ's rookie season that began in Cleveland then found him in Phoenix by way of a trade that involved Mark West, Tyrone Corbin, Larry Nance and Mike Sanders. Johnson immediately flourished, averaging 14.5 points and 10.1 assists in 28 games with the Suns. It's worth noting that unlike the Ceballos jersey, this doesn't appear to come with any sort of documentation. Even so, two grand? How about something in triple digits.
I don't know anything about guitars, so I'm unqualified to tell you if this is a good one. The seller seems disinterested in providing this information as well. You're not buying it to play though, you're obviously buying it for your Bachman Turner Overdrive/Phoenix Suns collection. Well for just 262 bucks after shipping it can be yours.
I realize the seller probably uses the same description for all items. It's worth nothing though, that the description includes the line, "This guitar is very rare, many artists refuse to sign guitars at all now!" That thought never occurred to me watching Sir Charles dominate the Western Conference in the early 90's. The Round Mound of Rebound: Artist.
You'll be the only person at the game in this one. In 1992 the Suns decided it was time to change up their image, and we were presented with the famed fireball logo we all love today. This is the road version of the jersey that came in second place. Suffice it to say, this one wouldn't have lasted long.
The creativity can be appreciated, but it reminds me too much of the Cavaliers jerseys from 1994 to 1999. If you are however the kind of fan that already has every Suns jersey in your closet, this is the rarest of the rare. This one will run you 235 bucks all in. Too pricey? Got ten bucks in your pocket? I've got something for your collection.
Finally! An opportunity to recognize your appreciation for the first Suns squad to reach the NBA Finals and your love of malt liquor. Ten bucks and you can pick up this goody, complete with the Suns schedule from their Western Conference Championship season.
It's a familiar story for Phoenix fans. The Suns finished just 42-40 in the regular season, and strung together winning and losing streaks of seven games respectively. Once the playoffs started Phoenix knocked off Seattle in six, Golden State in seven, before bowing out to the champion Celtics in six games. The series with Boston included the triple overtime thriller in game five, arguably the greatest NBA Finals game ever played.
I know, that conjures up bad memories doesn't it sports fans? My apologies, think back to that combo of Paul Westphal and Alvan Adams. Doesn't help? Dick Van Arsdale? Gar Heard? No? Still hurts? Better grab 40 ounces of Colt 45.
