In defense of Channing Frye


Channing Frye is one of the most polarizing topics on Bright Side of the Sun, but all the numbers point to him being a huge loss for the Phoenix Suns.

Suns want to dictate outcome more than 34 times


While the Suns were exciting last year for all 82 games, they really only dictated the pace and ran their ideal system for 34 of those games. Signing Isaiah Thomas to supplement Goran Dragic and...
