At least you can always cheer for this team.
That was bad ... really bad.
I've been excusing the preseason struggles all preseason, but you can't give up 78 first half points to the Nuggets, who played last night in Portland and are without
five six of their best players (Anthony, Martin, Andersen, Billups, and Harrington +Nene). Even without Turkoglu and Childress, this team doesn't look anywhere close for the regular season to start on Tuesday.
I still think there's too much talent and quality for this team to be bad, but it does look like the first 10 or 15 games might be a rough ride.
The Suns finish the preseason with a 2-6 record, which means nothing but the fact that they still haven't found their shot and even worse, got crushed on the defensive end, is officially troubling.

It looks like defense...but it obviously wasn't
