The Phoenix Suns have never won a NBA Championship, but has won two Western Conference Championships. With a lack of NBA Championships, they have developed great teams in their over 50 year club history.
Here’s our top Phoenix Suns teams:
5. 1988-89 Suns
In February of 1988, the Suns traded All-Star forward Larry Nance, Mike Sanders and a 1988 first-round draft pick to Cleveland for an untested point guard named Kevin Johnson, Tyrone Corbin, Mark West and first- and second-round picks in the ’88 draft and a 1989 second-round pick.
Then, in the June draft, Phoenix drafted Dan Majerle, an unknown from Central Michigan. Fans booed the pick. One week later, the Suns signed Seattle forward Tom Chambers, the first unrestricted free agent in NBA history.
4. 2009-10 Suns
The Suns won 54 games under Alvin Gentry and got to the Western Conference Finals.
