Last season ended with the Suns in the Western Conference finals.
Right now, on the eve of the next season, talk around the Suns is about progress and getting on the right page as the season starts. Look at what Nash told Seth Pollack of SB Nation.
“To be honest, if I was outside this picture and a betting man, I would probably pick us to be outside of the playoffs considering all the changes and the new guys,” team leader Steve Nash said after Sunday’s team practice…
“Maybe we need to take a step back, regroup, be a little bit more patient, build a really good team and see how good we can be later in the year instead of jumping out of the gate and be like, ‘Oh, we’ve got to finish top two or three in the West and give ourselves a chance to win the West and go to the Finals.’ That stuff can come if we really improve, but we can’t put that type of pressure on ourselves right away because we are a new team.”
There were major changes to the Suns, with Amar’e Stoudemire out and Hedo Turkoglu in. Josh Childress is now the first guy off the bench. All of that may not be bad, but it’s a change.
Clearly one the Suns are still adjusting to.
