The Suns had top notch point guards for nearly 25 years, starting with KJ in 88 and ending with Nash in 2012. Fans were really not used to seeing a team without one. We had a few Marbury years in there that felt like the lesser years of that span, but he was still a 20/8 guy, though he lacked scoring efficiency.
Gail Goodrich, Charlie Scott, Paul Westphal, Ricky Sobers, Don Buse, Dennis Johnson, Kyle Macy, Jeff Hornacek, and Danny Ainge say hi
All of those guys begtter than what we've had.
Put it all on Jerry C... he was a hall of famer Illini PG in the early 60s. it was his/our stamp/signature... like not having a true center
Most of them were prior to 84, except for the ones who played with KJ when he was the primary PG. Except Macy, who was there one year, but was nothing special. Hornacek was a rookie the year before KJ got there and didn't play much....we were relying on Jay Humphries...from 84-85 to 87-88 was the longest tough stretch of losing seasons since the early years....until now. Even in 83-84 they had dipped to 500, but somehow made it to the WCF.
