The Phoenix Suns are a professional basketball team in the National Basketball Association (the NBA). The Phoenix Suns play in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference with four other teams: the Los Angeles Lakers, the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Sacramento Kings. Suns tickets will surely be hard to come by during the 2014-2015 NBA schedule.
Phoenix Suns 2014-2015 Outlook
Forty-eight wins didn’t get the job done last year, but the Suns, undaunted, will give the punishing Western Conference another crack in 2014-15. This time around, they’ll have Isaiah Thomas rounding out a deadly three-guard rotation that will also include the newly paid Eric Bledsoe for a full season.
Goran Dragic was an elite performer last year, and he’ll look to duplicate 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 offense, but the team that led the NBA in fast-break points a year ago may play with enough speed to make up for that loss.
The bad news is that the Suns may have yet another excellent season and still fall short of the playoffs. The good news is they’ve got enough cap flexibility to re-sign Dragic next summer and pursue a major free agent who could put them over the top.

The NBA awarded an expansion franchise an ownership group from Phoenix in January 1968. The Phoenix Suns hired a former Chicago Bulls executive as its General Manager – Jerry Colangelo. At the ripe young age of 28, Colangelo hired Hall of Famer Johnny “Red” Kerr as the Suns first Head Coach. The Suns finished their inaugural season with an atrocious 16-66 record and when the team did not show any real progress during the 1969-1970 season, Kerr resigned as the Head Coach of the Suns. The Phoenix Suns recorded their first winning season during the 1970-1971 with a 48-34 record. But the team did not qualify for post-season play. The Phoenix Suns finally reached their first NBA finals following the 1975-1976 NBA season. Although the Phoenix Suns finished the season barely above .500 with a 42-40 record, the Suns upset the Seattle Supersonics 4-2 in the Western Conference Semifinals and the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals to advance to the NBA Championship Series. The dream run came crashing to an end with a quick 4-2 series loss to the Boston Celtics. The Phoenix Suns have advanced to the NBA Finals only one other season. During the 1992-1993 season, the Phoenix Suns finished the season with a franchise record 62 wins (the Suns would later go on to win 62 games during the 2004-2005 season as well). The Phoenix Suns defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs and Seattle Supersonics to advance to the NBA Championship Series. But the Phoenix Suns could not overcome Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls who were on their way to winning their 3rd consecutive NBA Championship.
The following Phoenix Suns have been honored as members of the Suns Ring of Honor: Dick Van Arsdale #5; Walter Davis #6; Kevin Johnson #7; Dan Majerle #9; Tom Chambers #24; Alvin Adams #33; Charles Barkley #34; Connie Hawkins #42; Paul Westphal #44; Cotton Fitzsimmons #832 (representing the number of coaching wins recorded); and Jerry Colangelo (first Suns General Manager).
