If you have been watching the NBA for the last few seasons then you have definitely seen a lot of the Phoenix Suns.
Just a couple of seasons ago, the Suns made it all the way to the NBA Finals, where they were taken down by Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Then, last season, the team had the best regular season in the league before being shocked and pushed out of the Western Conference semifinals by the Dallas Mavericks.
Despite their shortcomings, the Suns are still one of the most fascinating, fun, and beloved teams in the league.

Therefore, it’s no surprise to see that they will have 34 nationally televised games in the upcoming NBA seasons.
Across TNT, ESPN, and NBA TV, the Suns are going to be all over your television in the months ahead.
But will they be able right their wrongs and reach the Finals again?
And if they are, will they finally win that championship ring?
Brighter Than Ever?
Fans of the Suns are getting just a bit nervous, to say the least.
That is because the team has come close – but not close enough – to the sort of greatness people expect.
They lost their chance at the Finals against the Bucks and then got surprisingly defeated before even reaching the Western Conference Finals just a year later.
That’s not the sort of direction the team should be moving in.
There is no doubt that a lot of talent resides on the team but for how much longer?
Chris Paul is getting older and some of the better players on the team will want to be traded if Phoenix doesn’t overcome its problems.
This is why so many people will be paying attention to the Suns this year – a lot is riding on their season.
