Sunny Side

This could be a long year for the Phoenix Suns. Tabbed as the least watchable team in the NBA, the Suns have no dominant players and questionable depth, which is generally a recipe for an early vacation and a high draft-pick. In spite of this, the Suns looked solid in the preseason (for whatever that’s worth to you) and they have a solid albeit unspectacular set of young guards with Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. If rookie center Alex Len -- who many believed was the best player in the draft -- can get healthy, the Suns may just get a bit more interesting.

The Suns will start playing games for keeps this week including a tilt against the Utah Jazz Friday, November 1, at US Airways Center, 201 East Jefferson Street. The game will tip off at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $13 and are available via
