Technically speaking, Abdel Nader already made his return for the Phoenix Suns back in June. After missing three months of action due to knee soreness and subsequent arthroscopic knee surgery, “Doolie” found himself tossed back into the fray…in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals. Nader was just as surprised as anyone to get the call from head coach Monty…...

Elfrid Payton will be embracing a very different role on a very different team when he rejoins the Phoenix Suns in 2021-22

It’s been four years since Elfrid Payton last suited up for the Phoenix Suns. In the time that’s passed, a lot has changed — both for Payton and for the organization. “Way different,” Payton said of the Suns at Media Day. “A lot more attention to detail. I don’t know if y’all seen the facility, just the amount of money,...

Jalen Smith was not like many other rookies from the 2020 NBA Draft class. For most top-10 picks, that kind of description would be a good thing. For Stix, it was the opposite. Last year, 25 rookies averaged at least 20 minutes per game. Smith wasn’t one of them. Forty rooks averaged at least 15 minutes per game, and still,...

It’s not often a guy on a two-way contract will get 13 minutes to speak at his team’s Media Day. But hearing Chandler Hutchison talk so knowledgeably about the Phoenix Suns, his new teammates’ skill-sets and where he might fit in, it was hard not to buy into what he was saying. The odds may be stacked against him to...

What if John Paxson had missed in Game 6 of the 1993 NBA Finals?

Time. Space. Reality. It’s more than a linear path. It’s a prism of endless possibility. Where a single choice can branch out into infinite realities, creating alternate worlds from the ones you know. I am the Suns Watcher. I am your guide through these vast, new realities. Follow me, and ponder the question: What if? In a playoff series, a...

Look, we get it. The Phoenix Suns just finished playing meaningful basketball less than three months ago, and no one usually gives a damn about preseason anyway. It’s just hard to care when you go from watching Chris Paul and Devin Booker in the NBA Finals to Elfrid Payton and Jalen Smith logging big minutes against the Sacramento Kings. But...

Deandre Ayton’s game has been getting louder for months now. His infamous “Valley-Oop” finish in the playoffs nearly brought the roof of The Footprint down, rendering notorious chatterboxes like Stephen A. Smith and Michael Wilbon — men who make a living off loudly voicing their opinions — completely silent. For a 22-year-old who was questioned (and rightfully so) just months...

2021 Phoenix Suns Media Day

The Phoenix Suns held their annual Media Day on Monday, and as always, there was a LOT of sound bites to sift through. While there may not have been as many juicy tidbits as some of the other NBA franchises currently in turmoil, that’s a good thing; not so long ago, Suns Media Day sessions filled with drama and tension...

Elfrid Payton will be embracing a very different role on a very different team when he rejoins the Phoenix Suns in 2021-22

After being demoted from starting point guard to being rarely used in the playoffs, Elfrid Payton made the decision to leave the New York Knicks in free agency this summer. He ultimately chose the Phoenix Suns, agreeing to sign a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum of $2.2 million. Returning to the Valley for the first time since 2017-18, Payton...
