NBA Cinderellas: Ranking the Phoenix Suns' 10 Biggest Developments This Season

The Phoenix Suns are without a doubt the NBA's biggest Cinderella story this season. Fans and experts wrote them off early, but they’ve played through twist after turn, making their own luck and creating opportunities out of obstacles.

From the Marcin Gortat trade that seemingly spelled “TANK” in capital letters to the undeniable impact of several step-up performers, it’s been an up-and down-ride to say the least. It's no secret that Goran Dragic and Co., have played through it all.

The reality of the matter is that Phoenix refuses tank. Even more so, they don’t have to.

They're playing solid basketball despite injuries and personnel turnover, and they're right in the middle of the playoff hunt. The Suns' resiliency to adversity has been a resounding theme throughout the season, and they've found a groove recently. Plus, they've already got first-round picks coming their way in 2014.

With a new coaching staff setting the tone, the Suns won’t throw in the towel this season and have turned at least ten challenges into opportunities this year.

Don’t expect them to go anywhere in the second half of the season.
