For the past month, most of Phoenix Suns fans have been thinking of ways that they could make the playoffs, hoping that a win in Dallas would help make it happen.

After the Suns were humiliated by the Mavericks all hopes disappeared and the reality set in. I think most of us Suns Fans agree that the Suns do not deserve to be in the playoffs this year.

The Phoenix Suns had one of the most exciting rosters in the NBA this year, having two MVP's and two more all stars, but they could not make the playoffs. They couldn’t beat Sacramento, the worst team in the league when they needed to and they couldn’t come close to winning in Dallas.

Finally Suns fans can take a rest, we know that we are not in the playoffs. We can starting talking about what we want to see next year in Phoenix, who should be traded?

Should the coach stay? Should the GM go home?

Do we want to stop running and play defense? Do we want to run and play defense (which I don’t understand why it is so hard to do)?

Do we want Nash to keep running things? Do we want Stoudemire to be the franchise player or trade him for a player like Chris Bosh who is a better defender? Will we be able to trade Shaq?

So many questions, and so much time.

I’m sure we will be writing our opinions about next season and hopefully we will be able to get back on top and not fall back.

In the meantime we can watch some quality playoff basketball from other teams.
