Mayo would have been the perfect addition for the Suns. They did look at him?

The Suns don't get calls like that though bro. I'm starting to get used to simply not expecting the refs to do their job in situations that favor the Suns at the end of games. Against the Raptors Shannon Brown was mugged, practically thrown to the ground while shooting the ball with 2 seconds left down by 2 points trying to send the game to OT but there was no call. The replay showed him getting blatantly fouled, but no call. And that's been a common occurrence for the Suns this year.

I don't know why... but it seems like this year the refs just don't like the Suns. Maybe it's because we're not that good of a team, don't have the biggest most widespread fanbase out there, or don't have any NBA automatic money generators like Blake Griffin, Dwayne Wade, Kobe Bryant, etc. Now that Steve Nash left the Suns it's been really weird with the refs. I know it sounds stupid and "conspiracy theorist-like", but this is the first time it's felt like this. If I had recorded all of the blatant fouls, no-calls or simply bad calls in favor of the other team that I've noticed and replayed on my DVR throughout this short season so far, especially in the 4th quarter, I could make a 10 minute montage out of them. And it wasn't like that last year or the year before, etc(we were a mediocre team back then too)... so I don't know why it's just this year it all of the sudden is like this.

This team has a lot of fight, but ultimately they don't have the talent level needed to win. Their hustle keeps them in games, but ultimately we're disappointed with the reality that this team is just a work in progress with no identity, and it sucks...

We have a lot of draft picks coming up and a lot of relatively desirable trading chips, but I can't stand to see my team just barely fall short every single night. They fight back in the game and get me off my seat excited, and it's frustrating that they just can't get the W in the end to show for it.

I know sometimes you have to lose big in the season to have a better chance to win big in the draft, and who knows... maybe that's why we don't get calls at the end of games, because the NBA doesn't want us to win games because they know winning right now isn't in our long-term best interest. I know it's unlikely, but then again I've heard of crazier things like refs swinging western conference championships for gambling money ;)

Is there even anyone in the draft losing for this year though? Last year's draft didn't impress me at all outside of Davis. I just don't follow college basketball, so I don't know the prospects outside of what I hear from other people or catch in the few televised games I watch(usually March Madness games)....
