The Phoenix Suns were not supposed to start the season at 7-15.
Sure, with Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley and Luis Scola all coming into the starting rotation, fans knew it was going to be an experimental year—not this bad though.
Before the season, the Suns were a team I believed could compete for one of the lower seeds in the Western Conference. Now, I am more focused on the lottery and which prospects fit the best.
What caused this turnaround? Well, the players usually tend to be the most responsible for a team's performance, but who specifically is at fault?
Let's find out. I will grade the players based on preseason expectations, overall level of play and how well they have played in their current role.
