The Phoenix Suns are hot garbage.

Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight are good players and Alex Len is a good player off the bench, but that’s really all I like about this Suns team.

Tyson Chandler isn’t the player he once was on defense. Jared Dudley is the definition of MEH and the team is expecting first year head coach Earl Watson to try and get this team back to the playoffs for the first time in seven years?

Please. Don’t make me laugh. The Suns could potentially be the worst team in the Western Conference and will likely be in the running for that first overall draft pick in the NBA Draft next season.

That’s really all I have on this team. My mother always said if you don’t have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. Everyone listens to their mothers, right?
