New, comment

We've got a reason to look forward to the next Philadelphia/Phoenix matchup.

DEFENSE? IN PHOENIX? Alex Len and Miles Plumlee are embracing their roles as stoppers in the frontcourt.

"He's been sensational. He's got a great attitude, a great knowledge of the game and is making rapid, rapid progress," Suns President Lon Babby said regarding Len's improvement.

There's plenty of talent at the forward position as well, with the early success of T.J. Warren creating a welcomed logjam.

We're now deeper into the season, but Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said he was "comfortable" with the team's performance through 11 games.

Markieff Morris is looking to "tap all of his talent." And it's a whole bunch of talent.

"Film doesn't lie." Isaiah Thomas has been doing a little more homework recently. Let's hope that the film study is something that continues.

Eric Bledsoe is convinced the Philadelphia 76ers were out to get him during last Friday's 122-96 Phoenix road victory over the league's only remaining winless team.

And the Sixers are on the brink of history, if you didn't know.

So, evidently Bledsoe did sign his qualifying offer this summer, he just didn't send it in because "I wasn't worried about it. I knew everything would take care of itself." Wow.

You will never again see Kobe Bryant play in an important basketball game. Let that sink in. Could the Lakers make a play for Goran Dragic when the season is over?

Who's the X-Factor so for this season for the Suns, who has the best 1 on 1 move, and who has had the best post-bucket celebration so far in 2014?

Charles Barkley refuses to call the basketball team in Washington the "Wizards." They'll always be the "Bullets" to The Chuckster.
