If they Play Dallas, they have a little bit of a chance but I wouldnt favor them and most others wouldnt ethier, unles they had homecourt.

Plus Steve Nash is what, 35 now? Hes a great, great player but when it goes for him, it gonna be a very steep decline, o they better hope its not this year.

Suns will never win anything.

Stein is such a Suns slurper. What good teams have they beaten? And they've lost to 2 mediocre ones..

The Knicks are such losers. They can't even achieve Worst Power Ranking in the League. Isiah fails at everything.....

I can agree here. They seem to play their best when they have Amare and Skinner in there together. It just can't happen a lot because of the other players they have who deserve minutes. Also, Amare played the entire 4th quarter with 5 fouls and played Yao great. He has the potential, but I don't know if he'll ever realize it on defense. He's just needs to be smarter.

I think it's become pretty apparent that no one on the Suns can guard Duncan. It's the Manu and Parker that need to be slowed down.

There is no other team in the league besides GS who matches up with the Mavs better. No team has the advantage in this matchup.

When he actually declines, this is a valid argument.

.

That team is done without Steve. There entire offense and roster value is predicated on having a amazing playmaker that you have to play for the shot.

Suns have played like garbage all season--just as they did at the beginning of last season--so I wouldn't make any sweeping conclusions about them if I were you. Oh wait, you're a Mavs fan.


It's funny to see them at the top of someone's power rankings anyway. They should probably be fifth or sixth, and even that high they'd be evidence of the giant gulf between the top teams and the rest of the league.

Yeah, they shouldn't be #1 for sure. It's usually Bucher who loves the Suns, so I'm a little surprised to see Stein put them up there. Maybe because their winning streak?

Probably. That and their 'schedule victories' over the Magic and Rockets.

How did the Celts drop that far? They've lost 1 game to a good team.

Weird.

It's all about the Hornets!
Hopefully CP3's ankle doesn't sideline him much longer bc this team is gaining alot of chemistry. Every night it seems like a different Hornet steps up and has a big game.
