To acquire a ring, you need to make the playoffs. And the Phoenix Suns understand better how difficult that may be.
Forty-eight wins didn’t get the job done last year, however, the Suns, undaunted, will give the punishing Western Conference yet another crack in 2014-15. This time around, they will have Isaiah Thomas rounding out a mortal three-guard spinning that–hopefully–may also incorporate the recently paid Eric Bledsoe for a complete season.
Goran Dragic was an elite actor this past year, and he will seem to replicate the most impressive individual offensive season we’ve seen in the post-Steve Nash Suns era.
Channing Frye’s departure to the Orlando Magic will hamper Phoenix’s spacing on crime, but the group which led the NBA at fast-break points a year ago may play with enough speed to make up for that loss.
The bad news is that the Suns could have yet another excellent season and fall short of the playoffs. The fantastic news is they’ve got enough cap flexibility to re-sign Dragic next summer and pursue a significant free agent who could place them over the top.
This season will probably be too much fun to word a throwaway, but the fact is the Suns are a year away from really raising their profile.
