SB Nation Reacts: Feeling good about the Valley

Guess what happens when your local NBA team absolutely rocks the 2020 Champs with 30+ point leads in back to back preseason games?

Yes, fans are feeling even better now about the Phoenix Suns than they were during the off-season — which was already pretty darn good.

SB Nation polled Bright Side of the Sun fans who are signed up for SB Nation Reacts a couple days ago how they were feeling about the team in the middle of preseason. A whopping 72% believe the Suns look better than they expected. And this was before the Suns demolished the Blazers in their final preseason game by a 42 point margin.

Not all team fans are thrilled by what they’re seeing in preseason though. Some fans were expecting better and got a lot worse (imagine how Lakers fans are truly feeling right now!). In fact, across the board of all 30 teams, less than half of them feel better about their team now than they did before the preseason started. Less than half!

The Suns aren’t the only game in town, though. In the same arena, the Mercury are embroiled in their own Finals matchup for the WNBA and a small, teeny tiny majority of poll takers nationwide think the Merc will win their 4th league championship in the last 15 years.

Today, the Mercury and Chicago Sky are tied up 1-1 in the best-of-five Finals series, with pivotal game three on Friday in Chicago. Take some time to check it out and support your local Mercury on ESPN Friday night!

What do you think of these poll results, Bright Side fans?
