What? Huh? How in the world is this one of the most intriguing matchups in the league this year?
Okay, let me explain.
They're division rivals! That is all.
Kidding aside, I think these two teams have some very interesting rosters that many will be watching closely to see how they mesh together. If both of these teams come together and reach their full potential, then both of them can surprise many experts and sneak into the playoffs.
The Kings have a plethora of talent on their roster. If only their top two stars, DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans, were able to improve their attitudes and become the leaders of this team, maybe the city of Sacramento would get used to seeing winning basketball again.
Upon the departures of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, the Suns rebuilt their roster by signing free agents such as Goran Dragic and Michael Beasley, while picking up Luis Scola off waivers. It will be very interesting to see whether Beasley can finally turn his career around and whether Dragic will play the same way he did during the second half of last season.
How these players fit in with the likes of Marcin Gortat and Jared Dudley will also be interesting.
Want another reason why I will love to watch these two teams play one another?
Kendall Marshall and Thomas Robinson! My two favorite rookies from this year's draft.
That is all!
