Yes the offseason here in AZ is boring, the heat is miserable and the Suns news isn't exactly plentiful. 

So here goes another one of those, "let's post a little something to keep us from nodding off at work" posts.

If Steve Nash isn't the best Sun of all time, who is?

Consider what Barkley did for the franchise: their latest and second finals appearance occurred after his acqusition. STAT was a good player who made great plays and had some huge playoff games, spending all of his career here until a couple months ago. KJ was nearly a career Sun, led them to many many playoff appearances, he was the heart and soul for years.

Here's a little something to help you out, if you need some help with numbers.

Food for thought:

  • Alvan Adams leads the franchise in minutes and games played
  • Walter Davis leads the franchise in scoring, field goals made and attempts
  • Mark West leads the franchise in field goal percentage (but never took a shot outside the paint as I recall)
  • Shawn Marion is second in total rebounds all time and first in defensive rebounds
  • Kevin Johnsons is the all time franchise leader in assists
  • Steve Nash leads the franchise in free throw percentage and 3-pt field goals and is second in assists
  • Charles Barkley is second all time in scoring average

Who else can you think of and let us know what your criteria is for your selection.
