The X Factor:
Entering his fifth NBA season (and already on his third team), it’s now or never for Michael Beasley. Is he the potential star that he appeared to be coming out of college, or a bust?
The Steve Nash era is over in the valley, and the Suns are definitely in rebuilding mode. The wins will be hard to come by this season, but hopefully for Suns fans some of the team’s young talent will have breakthrough years and point to a brighter future.
