When people were predicting how the Suns would do this year at the beginning of the season, Phoenix decided not to listen to them.

Turns out that those people were completely wrong. Not only are they teetering on the playoff precipice, but first-year head coach Jeff Hornacek is among the frontrunners for NBA Coach of the Year.
