Hallelujah, the season is upon us.
No time to fret over the last game because the next one comes up so quickly. Tonight, the Suns face the Raptors in Vancouver. And once again, it's not on TV. Not a single person south of the Canadian border will see the game with their own eyes.
I don't know about you, but last night's game thread was weird. It was like a Twilight Zone episode.
A new-millenium real-time game chat bringing Suns fans from all over the world together in one virtual place... as they all gathered around their respective transistors to listen to a game on AM radio. I had a strange desire to pour myself a glass of lemonade and rock on the front porch.
Tonight's gonna be deja vu all over again.
Edit: Seth has a better game preview here, complete with lots of links to non-BSotS recaps and previews amongst the interwebs.
I'll get better at this, I promise. Jump to the rest of the story anyway, to make me happy. We're #3!!
Pluses for the Suns:
Now flush last night's game from your minds, Suns fans. Wins and losses mean NOTHING in the preseason.
If a vet plays bad, it means nothing (Dragic, Warrick) unless they played really well, in which case it means everything (Lopez).
Let's just hope Earl Clark finds some positive consistency.
Unless, of course, Gani Lawal blows the doors off the game.
You know me ... always humble. But 3rd? That's pretty damn awesome, considering the company we are in.
Of course, it's a team effort. That's how we roll in the PHX. So thanks, everyone!
Big, Huge THANKS to Akis at Pick And Scroll.
He attended the game on a Kings press pass, and was kind enough to review all of the Suns players from Tuesday night's game.
This stuff is gold for those starved for Suns news. Also, check out Akis' other work on Pick And Scroll - he's writes some mighty good NBA content.
Highlights from last night's reviews: JRich rocked, Lopez was good and bad, Dragic needs to chill, Janning apparently doesn't even exist in some circles, and... oh, Earl...
