Just a fun idea for a lazy Sunday. What's the best starting 5 you can put on the floor for your Suns, made up of all present or former Suns players?
- Thinking out loud: Would you rather have Barkley at PF or STAT? Nash or KJ or Kidd? (duh). Majerle at the 2 or J-Rich, JJ, or Q?
- Here's a real challenge: Whose your starting Center? RobLo? Amare? Jake Tsakilidis, Joe Klein, Mark West? (hur hur hur).
What if you slid Amare to center next to Barkley and Marion with Nash and Joe Jonson in the backcourt?
Or what about some of the old-schoolers? Paul Westphal in his prime was a stud. Alvin Adams was a pretty dang efficient and excellent passing undersized C. Don't forget Walter Davis, the greyhound with the velvet touch, at the 2.
And here's a wrinkle to give you more time away from your friends and family in completing this assignment: What former Suns coach would you want to run this squad?
Assume your squad is in its' prime. Here's a little help from Basketball Reference to look up some guys you may have forgotten.
You get how it works. Let's hear it!
