Welcome to the NBAs doldrums. The buzz of All-Star festivities has worn off, and its not quite the seasons home stretch, when the jockeying for high seeding in the Western Conference playoffs reaches a fever pitch. Plus, its March, when baseball saturates our desert air and high-stakes hoops of the collegiate variety steals the hardwood spotlight for a month.
So, whats to keep our interest in the Phoenix Suns during this fallow time, when the dregs of the leagues -- like the Philadelphia 76ers -- blow through town? Well, there is that little experiment known as The Shaq Trade. As for the Sixers, well, they were good once upon a time.
