The Phoenix Suns are one team that committed to going all-in at the trade deadline.
In a blockbuster trade, the Suns acquired Kevin Durant from the Brooklyn Nets.
No one saw this coming, at least not in the middle of the season.
But, once Durant recovers from his injury, the pressure will be on in Phoenix.
They have created a big three in Durant, Devin Booker, and Chris Paul.
There should be no reason they do not win the NBA championship.
Fox Sports analyst Chris Broussard thinks it is championship or bust for the Suns.
If healthy, it’s Championship or Bust for KD & the Phoenix Suns this season! Period. https://t.co/020gBybnok

It will be interesting to see how the Suns respond to championship-level pressure.
Durant has won two championships before but Booker and Paul have been known for coming up small in the playoffs.
In a star-driven league like the NBA, the team with the most stars is expected to win.
So even though they will not have much time to build chemistry, it is championship or bust.
Especially because Paul is on the back end of his career.
He has not been great at scoring the ball this year, yet he is still elite at creating for others.
Durant thought his move to Brooklyn would work, instead, it was a complete disaster.
He hopes this superteam in Phoenix will not go as poorly as the one with the Nets.
Ultimately, it will not be easy to make it out of the Western Conference playoffs.
But, there are no excuses for the Suns to not get it done.NEXT: New Suns Owner Is Planning A Bright Future
