People love to reminisce, which is why folks argue about whether the Steve Nash-led Phoenix Suns could beat the Charles Barkley-era squad. Foolish, really. Besides, even if the two teams squared off, the old Suns would be at a disadvantage because A.C. Green wouldnt play with the same aggressiveness on account of losing his virginity.
Local basketball fans looking to talk about the past should head to US Airways Center for the Suns tilt against the Sacramento Kings. The home team is likely to pour it on against its Pacific Division rival, which should provide ample opportunity to compare Nash and the boys to other great Suns teams. Plus, Paul Westphal, the same man who led Phoenix to the 1993 NBA Finals, coaches the Kings.
