Gerald Bourguet serves as PHNX's reporter, writing savant and podcast co-host for all things Phoenix Suns. He's been a basketball fan since the day he could say "Michael Jordan," graduated from the Walter Cronkite School at ASU in 2013 with a BA and MA in sports journalism and has been covering the NBA ever since. As a credentialed media member since 2015, Gerald dealt with his Suns-related depression through his writing...until the Bubble Suns changed everything. Now, the Artist Formerly Known as Zewio is just as excited to cover winning basketball as Suns fans are to enjoy watching it.

Tuesday’s primetime matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors is a battle between the NBA’s two best teams so far, a possible playoff preview, and a potential passing of the torch moment all at once. Grounded by a core of talented youngsters, a few perfectly-fitting veterans and a head coach who places a heavy emphasis on ball movement…...

Cam Johnson is busting out of his shooting slump for the Phoenix Suns.

It wasn’t the most auspicious of starts to the season for Cam Johnson. Coming off an NBA Finals matchup just a few months prior in which he frequently played the part of third option, the 25-year-old wing simply couldn’t get shots to fall. Even as the Phoenix Suns turned their 1-3 start into an impressive (and still ongoing) win streak,...

The Phoenix Suns are winning ugly, but they've been dominant in the clutch.

The Phoenix Suns are going streaking, winning their 10th straight game Wednesday night to improve to 11-3 overall. Sure, at times the streak has been as aesthetically pleasing as an actual streaker running across the fanbase’s collective line of sight, but winning ugly has its merits too. In a nationally televised matchup against the Luka Doncic-less Dallas Mavericks, the Suns...

The Phoenix Suns are on an eight-game win streak after their 1-3 start.

Remember when the Phoenix Suns were 1-3 to start the new season and everyone wanted to hit the panic button? Boy was that silly! After Sunday’s 26-point win over the lowly Houston Rockets, the Suns notched their eighth straight win, improving to the NBA’s second-best record (9-3), fifth-best point differential (+5.7) and longest active win streak in the process. This...

Two years ago, Frank Kaminsky was on the verge of being out of the league. Now, he’s playing meaningful minutes filling in for one of the NBA’s best two-way bigs on a championship contender. What’s more, he’s doing it so effectively the team has barely missed a beat. Even with the Phoenix Suns’ meteoric rise since the 2020 NBA bubble,...

Chris Paul is facilitating first, then taking over in fourth quarters for the Phoenix Suns.

Chris Paul has led the NBA in assists four times in his Hall of Fame career. The Phoenix Suns are only about 10 percent of the way through their season, but him being on pace to do so again at age 36 is quite an eye-raising start. Through the Suns’ first nine games, CP3 is averaging a league-leading 11.3 assists...

Robert Sarver faces serious allegations of sexism and racism.

The Phoenix Suns played a basketball game Thursday night, and it couldn’t have felt more inconsequential. Not because they beat a 1-6 Houston Rockets team by double figures. Not because it was an early November contest in an 82-game season, and not because it was the exact type of game a Finals-caliber team won’t remember come May or June. No,...

The Phoenix Suns wouldn’t be sitting at .500 right now without Frank Kaminsky and JaVale McGee. In Tuesday’s game against a New Orleans Pelicans side missing its two best players, with a first-year head coach at the helm, the Suns found themselves trailing by as many as 20 points in the first half. That they were able to turn it...

The Phoenix Suns are declining Jalen Smith's third-year rookie team option.

Jalen Smith had a lot to prove heading into his second NBA season. He barely played as a rookie, his most favorable position on the floor was already occupied by Deandre Ayton and JaVale McGee, and even in terms of trade value, the former 10th overall pick had a lot of ground to make up in order to become an...

The Phoenix Suns are off to a 1-3 start, with Wednesday’s loss to the Sacramento Kings serving as perhaps their most discouraging defeat yet. Going 1-2 against playoff teams over a three-games-in-four-nights stretch was one thing, but failing to turn a winnable game into a blowout and getting smoked by a Harrison Barnes game-winning 3? That was quite another. https://twitter.com/GeraldBourguet/status/1453577327955243012...
