Slam Punked

Last call at a bar makes for wonderful people watching. We love peeping would-be pick-up artists ply their trade when their window of opportunity is about to slam shut.

There aren’t any franchises in the NBA that can relate to the plight of those desperate souls more than the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs. The Suns feature the league’s highest-scoring offense and an improving defense, and the Spurs still have all the key pieces that carried them to three championships last decade. Unfortunately, both squads are also aging fast and staring down potential rebuilding years in the near future. When the two teams square off it may very well be “last call” for what was once the premiere rivalry in Phoenix sports.
