Phoenix Suns Team History

 The Phoenix Suns began in 1968 as an NBA expansion team. They became the first and only major professional sports team in Phoenix and the state of Arizona until the Arizona Cardinals football team arrived in 1988. Despite many criticisms about the viability of Phoenix to be a successful basketball market, the Phoenix Suns have continued to thrive in Arizona despite having never taken home an NBA championship in its more than half a century of existence.

Phoenix Suns Championships

The Phoenix Suns have never won an NBA championship despite making it to the NBA Finals two times. The Suns made their first Finals appearance in 1976. Despite pulling off a colossal upset in defeating the defending champion Golden State Warriors, the Suns led by Alvan Adams and Paul Westphal could not finish the job, losing to the Boston Celtics in six games. The Suns would be one of the more dominant teams throughout the 1990s and were a perennial playoff team but would make the Finals only more time in 1993. With Kevin Johnson and All-Star and regular-season MVP Charles Barkley, the Suns fell victim to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, falling in six games. After a rebuilding period, the Suns experienced a period of success with Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire but were unable to make it back to the Finals during that stretch.

Phoenix Suns Famous Players and Hall of Famers

For 18 seasons in the NBA, Steve Nash was one of the top point guards in the game. Nash played most of his career with the Phoenix Suns, beginning his NBA journey in Phoenix from 1996 to 1998 and then returning to the franchise in 2004 and staying until 2012. Nash earned two NBA Most Valuable Player awards during his second stint with the Suns and was named to a total of eight NBA All-Star Teams and seven All-NBA Teams in his career. A point guard with a knack for elevating his teammates, Nash led the league in assists five times but also proved to be deadly with the ball in his hands, notching four seasons shooting better than 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from the three-point arc and 90 percent from the charity stripe. Nash ranks first in team history in three-point baskets made with 1,051 treys and in assists with 6,997 dimes. He also ranks third on the Suns in games played with 744 and seventh in points scored with 10,712.

Before Nash took over as the face of the franchise, Phoenix fans remember Kevin Johnson covering the point guard position for the Suns, spending the majority of his career in Phoenix after spending part of his rookie year with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Johnson was named an NBA All-Star three times and made five All-NBA Teams. Johnson ranks third in team history in points scored with 12,747, second in assists with 6,518, fourth in steals with 1,022 and first in free throws made with 3,851.
