For those of you who thought you'd just transition into MLB mode this Summer, think again. We here at BSOTS are out to provide TOTAL Suns/NBA coverage, EVEN IN THE OFFSEASON!
That's right, y'all. Look for NBA Playoff coverage, game threads, Suns Season in Review, and special appearances from the BSOTS All-Stars you know quite well including, but not limited to:

CBA Notes (thanks to Alex L and Mr. Coon):
- Teams can make trades under the existing CBA as soon as their season is done - players and draft picks alike - until June 30.
- Many believe a lot of teams will try to remake their rosters before end of June, because otherwise they might only have a week after the lockout to understand the new CBA and sign/trade free agents before training camp starts.
- For many teams, that could be disaster (remember it cost the Suns Antonio McDyess back when he was Amare before Amare, and got us a knee-jerk signing of Googs instead). So, June could be crazy followed by the black hole of July+.
But what if Nash had called BS somewhere before the end of the previous season? What if he and Grant Hill - unquestioned leaders of the team and men with impeccable credentials - weren't so diplomatic, tactful and concerned with being good employees? What if they weren't so respectful of authority?
who is a Bickley fan, raise your hand!
Nash himself has been increasingly clear on the subject over the past few days. Every time he spoke this week his answers became more and more certain. After the final game on Wednesday, he was as definitive as he's ever been on wanting to return.
