    Just 3 years ago the Phoenix Suns were 19 and 63.

    I watched far too many of those games.

    Thank you Suns for all of this, I will always cherish this season, especially after a pandemic

    I've missed a hand full of games in the last 30+ years, i've had tickets since 96.

    Never been more proud of the work ethic, family atmosphere and tryhardiness (not a word) of the Team.

    Someone needs to keep a camera pointed at the bench all next year, that's my favorite part, the reactions and utter joy they have for each others accomplishments.

    We can run the tape back at the ring presentation.

    When was the last time the team was this fun to watch? 2007 ?

    What a great turnaround. I guess coaching does make a difference.

    Credit where it's due to Sarver as well. If you jumped on him for screwing up, give him praise when he gets it right. Jones and Williams have gotten this done, along with finally making a few good draft picks and player aquisitions.

    Glad someone else mentioned this. I'm so grateful for Monty and JJ. They turned this franchise around in near record time. Ill give Sarver some credit for hiring JJ and allowing him to do his job. Hopefully he continues to do so in the future because the future is bright for this team.

    I'm not expecting a ton of postseason success this year but I believe the experience that Booker, Mikal, Ayton, Cam Johnson, and the rest of the team get will be huge going forward.

    I really missed the Suns being good. Last decade has been rough, and seeing this team good makes it not suck as much. I just love what James Jones has done in the past two years.

    If someone said the Suns would be the second seeded team in the West before the season everyone would have laughed since the last time they were in the playoffs was the 2009–10 season.

    I adore this team and the way the players care for each other. There is no quit in this team.

    This season was truly the first sports season that I finally internalized “enjoy the journey.” My whole life I’ve lived and died sports focused on the end game - championship or bust. It doesn’t mean every season ending in no championship was a waste, but I always viewed the regular season as a means to furthering the quest for a championship first and foremost. Relative playoff success was fun. And even watching exciting regular season basketball was fun - loved Barkley years and SSOL. But this is the first season where I can honestly say I haven’t been solely focused on what we do in the postseason. Maybe that changes again next year with increased expectations. And maybe it was just such a long drought of wins that turned my thinking. But I truly enjoyed this season for what it’s been thus far. Playoffs are now gravy. #•Thank you suns for making pandemic somewhat bearable.

    This thread reads like a memorial for a team we all loved... and know is dead.

    but I echo all of the above. Between the bubble run and this year, They got me through some of the worst moments of the pandemic and other personal crap with a couple hours every other night to watch this team just play hard and win more often than not.
