The Solar Panel: A Phoenix Suns Show

Tim, Dave and Greg bring their last episode of 2017

We discuss:

  • Only 5 West players average 24/4/4. All of them are All-Stars except Booker. Should Devin Booker make the All-Star game ahead of the likes of Damian Lillard, who’s already been snubbed more than once himself?
  • Alec Peters had yet another 30/10 game with the NAZ Suns, and remember that he had been considered borderline first rounder before his injury last spring. So what’s Alec Peters’ future in Phoenix? When will he get regular minutes with the Suns?
  • Our expert predictions for the Suns record this week, as they face the Sixers and Hawks at home, followed by the Nuggets and Spurs on the road.
  • and finally...
