Can you fellow GSoMers lend me a hand? I had a mental Ph.D. thesis about the decline of the Phoenix Suns all mapped out, but alas, a surprise visit from an old Cal chum has left me with 5 minutes total to write this (he's casting me annoyed glances as I write). So rather than break this down myself, I'll pose this as an open question, and fill in answers if and when I have time (say 11 pm EST). Are the 2010 WC finalist Suns done? Is their horrible preseason showing (worst point differential in the NBA) for real? Is this the year Steve Nash and Grant Hill fall off a cliff? Is their playoff spot ours for the taking? Or ... is it "just the preseason"? More later...
