Pics and vids: Fans excitedly mob Suns at airport

What a night!

After the Phoenix Suns finished off the Denver Nuggets in a four-game sweep — only the third sweep in Suns franchise history, and first sweep of Chris Paul’s career — the team returned to Phoenix and found a crazy number of fans waiting for them.

Suspend your worry, for a moment, about the comfort level of the players and coach being surrounded so tightly by thrilled fans that they couldn’t move their cars along... and spend a few minutes soaking in the wonder of a welcome party!

If you’re still here, then here’s a special treat. Wondering what the postgame locker room looked like, up in Denver, when the players were just chillin amongst themselves?

Let’s just say they were having fun!

The Suns will now wait for the winner of the Clippers-Jazz series this week (Jazz up 2-1) to earn the second spot in the Western Conference Finals against the Suns.

The WCF can start as early as next Sunday (June 20) if the Jazz-Clippers goes less than 7 games, or as late as Tuesday (June 22).

Until then, rest up and keep up on Bright Side for ALL the joy, prep and analysis of the WCF to come!
