  4. First Cup: Wednesday

    Henry Abbott

  5. The Most Essential Sun

    Henry Abbott

    By Henry Abbott Remember when Steve Nash, Mike D'Antoni and the "Seven Seconds or Less" Phoenix Suns redefined NBA basketball -- and even sniffed a championship in the process? Back then it was one of those funny academic debates. Who's more im...

  6. Steve Nash: Old white guy at the YMCA?

    Henry Abbott

    By Kevin Arnovitz It's been ages since the Phoenix Suns entered the NBA season as anything other than a lock for the playoffs. Heading into the 2009-10 season, though, the Suns have been roundly appraised as a bubble team. There's uncertainty surr...

  7. The TrueHoop Network Shootaround

    Henry Abbott

    Will the Shaq experiment work in Cleveland better than it did in Phoenix? What does it mean for the reigning Eastern Conference champs? Would Russell Westbrook chafe at having to slide over to the shooting guard to make room for Ricky Rubio? J...

  8. The Shootaround

    Henry Abbott

    A circular firing squad in Phoenix. Chris Paul leaves defenses running in circles. Quin Snyder comes full circle in Austin. Circle the wagons with the TrueHoop Network: Michael Schwartz of Valley of the Suns: "Thi...

  9. The Shootaround

    Henry Abbott

    A Spurs fan misses the old Suns. Hating the Lakers unconditionally is as cliched as bandwagoning. Dallas hits its open shot. Counter-intuition reigns in the TrueHoop Network: Josh Tucker of Hardwood Paroxysm: "Lo...

  12. Steve Nash in PLAY

    Henry Abbott

    Used to be that Steve Nash didn't do a lot of lengthy interviews. (He doesn't even make that much of an impression, amazingly, in Jack McCallum's book about a season with the Phoenix Suns.) But I heard a few months ago that would be changing a little...

  13. Phoenix ALMOST Did It

    Henry Abbott

    The Spurs scratched out the Game 5 win after trailing the vast majority of the game. A smattering of thoughts: Without Amare Stoudemire, Kurt Thomas became Steve Nash's pick buddy. That worked fine, as Thomas hit some open jumpers and even got an and...

  14. Feeling Violated by Playoff Basketball

    Henry Abbott

    Phoenix vs. San Antonio is a series with a problem. It's a problem that seems to have a lot to do with where this or that knee or elbow is winding up, and what is and what is not a foul. Or it might have a lot to do with the reality that NBA playoff ...

  15. All is Well in the NBA

    Henry Abbott

    Dallas vs. Phoenix had everything you could want from an NBA game. An insane number of great plays. Too much smartness from Steve Nash to catalog here. Amare Stoudemire with incredible statistics. Jason Terry hit a huge shot. I could go on and o...

  16. Bill Simmons on Steve Nash and Kevin Durant

    Henry Abbott

    Simmons' excellent column captures the story of this season in the NBA: the Phoenix Suns. They're the show. They're the story. They're the team to watch. (Shameless plug, once again, for everyone to read Jack McCallum's book, which makes me enjoy wat...
