Michael Schwartz of Valley of the Suns chronicles the misadventures of the franchise over the last three years. Robert Horry's forearm to Steve Nash that led to some of the least popular suspensions in NBA history, and could have cost the team a series against the Spurs. The trade of Shawn Marion for Shaquille O'Neal. Tim Duncan's miraculous 3-pointer, his first of the season, that won Game 1 of last season's playoff rematch with the Spurs. The alienation and departure of Mike D'Antoni. The departure of Boris Diaw and Raja Bell. The Terry Porter experiment. And now ... Amare Stoudemire's injured eye.
And yet, they are once again one of the best shows in the NBA.
