2. 2005/2006 Phoenix Suns

Record: 62-20 and 54-28

Key players: Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire, Shawn Marion, Joe Johnson (2005), Quentin Richardson (2005), Boris Diaw (2006), Leandro Barbosa, Raja Bell (2006)

Result: Lost back to back years in the Western Conference Finals to the Spurs and Mavericks. Probably the funnest team to watch ever. Their motto was shooting in “7 seconds or less”, and holy smokes it was fun to watch. These just couldn’t keep up. I don’t know what’s more impressive: the Suns record jump from 2004 to 2005, or the fact that the Suns made it all the way to the WCF in 2006 with Amare injured the entire year and having Boris Diaw as your starting Center. Unfortunately in the playoffs, the pace slows down, and it hurt the Suns. It just sucks that they were in the West when there were sooooo many West powerhouse teams during that era. If they’re in the East, the definitely make the Finals a few times and who knows, maybe they win a title. Then maybe Amare stays in Phoenix longer. Then they become a potential dynasty. Writing about these teams makes me sad. Sigh…
