With game two coming up in the NBA Western Conference Finals, the Phoenix Suns are facing the possibility of going down 2-0 in the series. If they go down 2-0, they can be counted out. And unfortunately for the Suns, this may be their last year to compete for a championship with this core. While players such as Shaquille O’Neal and Shawn Marion have come and gone, Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire have been in Phoenix during this run that has lasted almost a decade. However, time is running out. Nash is still excellent, but can only play for so long. And with the 2010 off-season coming up, who knows what is in store for Amare Stoudemire.
Most of America is rooting for the Suns. Steve Nash is a very likeable player, and if you don’t want Grant Hill to win a championship, then you have no soul. But unfortunately, standing between the Suns and a date in the NBA Finals are the defending champions. And if Kobe and company have their way, it looks like the Suns will add another playoff exit to their never-ending list.
