Suns coach Hornacek instructs team in locker room before game vs. Kings (VIDEO)

Dec 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

The Suns did something pretty great on Friday, providing an all-day multi-media experience that showed hours of behind-the-scenes video of what goes into a game day’s preparation.

While plenty of the footage provided would be more than interesting to even the more casual fans, the public access to the way Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek prepared his team in the locker room before facing the Kings on Friday is definitely worth sharing.

Public speakers at all levels are taught to keep their audience engaged by encouraging participation throughout a presentation or discussion, and Hornacek uses this trick of the trade to perfection by having his players verbally provide scouting reports for the group on their opponents for the evening.

Just one more example of why Phoenix has over-achieved, and why the players have bought in to what Hornacek has been teaching.

      Maybe it was the mic but I could barely understand a word Bledsoe was saying.

    Hornacek is doing such a great job with this team that is hard to believe that he’s just a rookie coach. Their communication in the locker room and their trust on the court is something beautiful to watch and is a shame that teams around the league aren’t doing this as much. Chemistry and communication are vital for a team, such as talent and youth is. This team is the second best surprise this year behind Portland.

    I think the NBA needs to add one more award for those teams that are good enough to beat or at least that can bother Elite teams in one game, but not good enough to go past 1 round of the playoffs… I’d name it the PITA award (Pain In The Arse). That award (IMO) would go to the Phoenix Suns. I hope they can keep this up cuz they’re really fun to watch!!

    Some players were so smart and had such a great feel for the game. I had no doubt he’d be a great coach. He was so underrated on the Jazz.

    Just wait until they get their draft picks and trade for their star. This teams going to be a contender in a year or two..
