The rookie hazing has started in Phoenix

Welcome to the NBA.

The Phoenix Suns are among the youngest teams in the NBA. Plenty of rookies means lots of hazing to go around. First up, is a classic. Check out the backpacks that Dragan Bender, Marquese Chriss, Tyler Ulis, and others will have to carry around for the time being.

It could be worse. It probably will be worse. But hopefully not too much worse, and hopefully good fun. The Phoenix Suns will be spending the week in Flagstaff at Northern Arizona University for training camp. Saturday, October 1st there will be a scrimmage that is open to the public. From there the Suns will return to Talking Stick Resort Arena for a Monday October 3rd preseason matchup with the San Antonio Spurs. The 2016-17 regular season gets underway on Wednesday, October 26th when the Suns will host the Sacramento Kings. Tip for the season opener is scheduled for 7:00 pm PT.
