Are you bored? Are you Sun deprived? If so, get up, go get some comfort food, sit-down, relax and watch these vids.

But first, hear my words.

I find it ridiculous that team websites can't even show pictures of their current players, yet they can still list the roster? What point is the NBA trying to make? Why don't they want us to see our players? Stupid sausageheads! Screw them!

As for myself, I am not a sausagehead. I may be a butthead, but I'm really just Beavis, a man of simple taste. I like food, soda, pizza, peace, happiness, fun, love, women and most importantly My Phoenix Suns (which if you haven't noticed kind of includes all of that). So listen up Stern you Notorious Windbag, stop sulking, get off your butt, go get ya bruddas and work out a deal!

Note: I lost some nice vids ever since the lock-out due to some copyright crap. I blame David Stern. Not sure if he's the reason why, but I'm going to assume it is anyway, because I want to.

With that said, keep in mind that as you watch this, you'll be watching some footage that David Stern doesn't want you to see nor remember until he is a richer man, so enjoy;)

Yao Ming officially retired from the NBA today after an injury riddled final few seasons to a career that was cut short.  The 7'6" center was a highly touted first pick overall by the Houston Rockets in the 2002 NBA Draft.  Although Yao won a championship in the Chinese Basketball Association before coming to the NBA, many fans and analysts alike might argue that he was never able to live up to his immense potential to become the dominant force in America so many expected him to be.

Still, even though he was never able to lead his team to the NBA Finals, Yao still managed to compile some impressive stats and performances in his relatively short yet memorable career.  This prompted Yahoo Sports writer Adrian Wojnarowski to argue that Yao deserves to eventually receive an induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame for both his contributions on the court, as well as the cultural and global impact he made on the sport.

Yao's body of work includes nine seasons with a career average of 19pts, 9.3rbs, and 1.9blks in 32:30 minutes of play.  He appeared in the playoffs four times with the Rockets, yet only made it out of the first round once in 2009 when they beat the Trail Blazers 4-2 and then lost to the Lakers 4-3 in the second round. Yao was named to the All-Star team a total of eight times in his nine seasons, but many would also refute the credibility of those numbers being that he received thousands of international votes from his Chinese fan base even when he was injured, or limited in his play.

Combining Yao's numerous achievements with all of his short-falls and injuries makes for a difficult overall assessment.  For all those who agree with Wojnarowski's opinion there are sure to be an equal if not greater amount of detractors of it as well.

Steve Nash's girl friend got a haircut. News?

Not really sure this counts as news, although she did tweet it and it is "new" so....

Also, Nash is seen in the background which proves that he's still alive (you know, it's been a few hours since we've heard from him) and besides...lockout.


A blast from the recent past... (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

In most summers, nothing happens for the Phoenix Suns after the first week or so of free agency until training camp starts. We might get 3-4 more pieces of Suns news (low-end free agents, coaching staff) over a 2.5 month span, but that's in a GOOD summer.

So, you've survived the worst of the lockout, Suns fans! In fact, the rest of the offseason should be a piece of cake.

Usually, we spend the next two months poring over sports stories, googling 'suns' news, fretting about other teams' better signings, arguing about the "fit" of new player X, lamenting the loss of a bench-warmer or two, and rolling eyes at fellow BSotSers' horribly-conceived trades (while our own ideas are genius!).

Basically, two months of high frustration.

Yet this summer is BETTER than that. Thanks to the lack of a CBA, we can't even propose trades with any comfort level. Thanks to the iffy season, we're not even debating keeping/trading Steve Nash ad naseum.

This summer you can relax and enjoy the time off. Get two months of good sleep. Am I the only one who would get up in the middle of the night to check Suns news for any late-breaking rumors or signings. Heck no I'm not. Cuz the one time I missed a midnight signing, there were 600 comments by 7am!

And guess what? There's still the same amount of Suns' related "news" as any other summer after the first week of free agency.

Take a look

BUCKS BEAT: Boylan sticking around

Looks like the Suns' top choice for their defensive coordinator job was Jim Boylan. Milwaukee is reporting he turned down the Suns offer to take a one-year extension with the Bucks. Oh well. It's not like I knew anything about Boylan.

 

Jason Kidd is finally a champion thanks to Mark Cuban

More Sarver piling-on. He deserves it. While I'm hopeful the new CBA will help the Suns compete more with the big-market teams (Dallas is 4th and Cuban makes gobs of profit on the Mavs every year), Sarver doesn't help himself with the local fans at all. Gotta give him credit for a few things, however small: (a) the Suns refund policy, (b) authorizing expansion of the coaching staff, (c) fighting for what he believes in, as a key owner in the labor deal, (d) keeping complete front office intact during lockout.

 

Armen Gilliam is the latest Phoenix Suns power forward to meet with misfortune

Wow, I had not connected those dots. Four, count em: 4, former Suns power forwards have met with extreme misfortunate in the past year. Sad.

 

Marcin Gortat's Phoenix Suns improvement video

ValleyoftheSuns.com is starting a series of instructional videos on what Suns players need to work on this summer. Gortat is first up. I'm really glad he's playing for Poland this summer to practice any new moves he picked up from The Dream last month.

And here's a video interview of Garret Siler. Getting player interviews is going to be hard this summer, since most of the media access was dictated by team policy.

 

NBA: Projecting rookie stat lines for Kyrie Irving, Jimmer Fredette, Kemba Walker and other top picks - ESPN

Take a look at the bottom of this list of potential ROYs. Markieff Morris makes an appearance for his highly efficient scoring. Factor in the unmentioned high rebound rate and defensive acumen, and you've probably got yourself a 15-year NBA player. No idea yet how good Morris will be, but he'll fill the box score at least.
