Tonight the Suns of Phoenix play a roadie against the playoff bound Hornets. These are the dog days for the Suns. Other than a couple of tryouts going on, (Aaron Brooks, Josh Childress, Jared Dudley-as a starter), there aren't a whole list of interesting things we hard core fans have reason to look for in this one. Nevertheless, there are some good reasons why we should stick it out to the bitter end with our Suns. How about these:
"I have no choice. We are in transition. I'm a part of it. I want to do the best I can to help. I don't want to leave. I want to do the best I can to get us back to contention."
I like to read into everything so I hear nothing but commitment from Nash. But then again most players say things like that either before or after their dealt. Makes them look classy. If Nash were to leave I'd expect a nice bug gillboard down town from him thanking the fans for the years of love.
But in the wake of the labor situation and the Suns lack of back court depth, it would probably be an awful move to trade Nash, unless it was for something that would never happen-something equivalent, or something with the potential to be Steve Nash within 1-2 years. Ask yourself who fits that bill and how much it would cost to obtain said point guard. This leads me to the next bullet point:
Things to consider on desultory Friday morning while your feigning work in your lil cubicles and such.

Secondly, as the title, and my previously posted Fan... posts imply, I've been trying to get a Meep Up going for us Phoenix Suns fans living in the Valley of the Sun. To my pleasant surprise, some of you are on board.

It seems to be 50-50 for Aztiramtempe and 60-40 against AZ punk showing up (late comers are welcome).
