Phoenix Suns Tickets for Sale

This may be the Phoenix Suns last run for in the Pacific Division for some time. Last season the Phx Suns missed the NBA Playoffs, finishing six games back of the eight-seed Grizzlies. Major personnel changes after a huge trade with the Magic could not quite close, but after half a season together Nash should be able to lead this Suns roster to the postseason.

It helps that there are so many players in a contract year. Nash, Vince Carter, Mickael Pietrus, and Robin Lopez are all playing for a big contract next season. Nash is as prolific a passer as ever, so the Phoenix Suns and the fan base expect him to deliver another season atop the NBA assists column and put up enough points to keep the passing lanes open. His three point percentage has been dropping the past three seasons, and so have his attempts. Perhaps the pursuit of another multi-year, eight-figure contract will help him hoist up a few more threes and add get the percentage a bit closer to 50 percent.

Carter is a notorious contract year king. This should be great news for the Phoenix Suns. They will either have a shooting guard contributing to an NBA title effort or a terrific trading piece to bring in some young talent or a draft pick. The Suns have two important rotation players whose future depends on their performance. Pietrus is never going to be a leading scorer, but he is a perimeter threat who plays solid defense. Lopez has had his moments in his first three NBA seasons as the Suns starting center, but he has never quite solidified his place. Lopez is a solid defender in the paint but needs to grab a few more rebounds and become more of an offensive weapon for Nash to earn a ridiculous long-term contract next season.

Phoenix Suns History

The Phoenix Suns have been bringing NBA basketball to the Arizona desert since 1968. Jerry Colangelo became the general manager at the age of 28 and put together an expansion team with Gail Goodrich and Dick Van Arsdale at guard. Despite starting the Suns history with an All Star pairing in the backcourt, Phoenix struggled to reach the postseason, but put up decent records for such a young franchise.

It took a Cinderella season to change the Suns' fortunes. The unlikely lineup of rookie center Alvan Adams, forward Gar Heard, guard Van Arsdale, and guard Paul Westphal took a 42-40 Suns team to the 1976 NBA Finals. The team lost to the Boston Celtics, but the surprising season saved Jerry Colangelo's job and began a decent run from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. Colangelo actually purchased the team in the mid-1980s after the Suns had endured a drug scandal and lost a promising prospect after a plane crash.

Colangelo would build a better team post-scandal. He added point guard Kevin Johnson, guard Jeff Hornacek, power forward Tom Chambers, forward Mark West, forward Tyrone Corbin, and guard/forward Dan Majerle to create a team that would play in the NBA postseason 13 consecutive seasons from 1988 on. Phoenix Suns tickets became basketball tickets to see a contender with the addition of Charles Barkley. Barkley had an MVP season and led the Suns to the 1993 NBA Finals, but Michael Jordan and the Bulls put an end to the Suns season in six games.

The next great stretch of the Suns schedule came with the signing of Steve Nash. Many though it unwise to award a point guard on the wrong side of 30 with a multi-season, eight-figure contract, but Nash became the floor general of a team consistently among the highest scoring in the NBA and a contender from 2004 to now. Nash has won two MVP awards and the Suns have embraced the "run and gun" offense as their franchise identity. Phoenix Suns tickets are available at TheSeats to see Nash make another run and save another veteran's career this next season at the US Airways Arena.
