Zim and I have been furiously debating John Hollinger’s NBA Franchise Rankings for most of the day and we should both be able to add our two cents later tonight or tomorrow (let’s just say I’m not entirely certain the Career Sgt. has ever watched an Orlando Magic game that isn’t in the NBA Finals) – but I just wanted to make one Suns related comment.
The Suns ranked 5th on Hollinger’s list in which he cited their 18 50-win seasons in the last 33, consistently entertaining teams, and talented stars. He also added the moniker “Best Team to Never to Win a Championship” and suggested whether Phoenix was the NBA’s version of the Cubs. This is the part where I’d like to have something cute and witty to say – you know something that would show how cool and detached I am – but instead I can only sigh. As Hollinger appears to be mostly correct I can only say – Reality is a cruel mistress.
