Post a great highlight in Suns history 

Post#1 » by King4Day » Tue Apr 28, 2020 4:55 pm

Whether it was your favorite or just a very memorable one, what was a moment that meant a lot to you?

One of mine is the Tim Thomas 3. Suns were down 3-1 against the Lakers in this series. We won game 5 and usually the home team finishes the series off in game 6. LA was poised to. Kobe hits the big shot to go up 3. Nash then misses the tying 3 and, instead of LA getting the rebound and making it a free throw shooting contest the rest of the way, Marion (to no surprise) gets the board, kicks it to Tim Thomas. Pump fake and buries the 3.

I always felt the announcers did a cruddy job of exuding the excitement of this play. Most wanted the Lakers to win and it wasn't to be.



I screamed so loud when he hit that shot. I felt like the game was ours once we made it.

The night GG exploded to complete the comeback vs a healthy Thunder.

This one was so great...I remember thinking we were done and just got that perfect rebound and kick out.

I almost forgot what a great team SSOL Suns were, these 10 **** years have been so depressing. Amare was such an offensive beast and with Nash orchestrating the whole thing, it was a treat to watch. I miss those times.

I thought about the Rex Chapman or Gar Heard shot but really my all-time favorite was this ...

My first thought too, was Gar Heard...just as a single play... but if there is one youtube clip I can watch over and over and over, its GD singlehandedly dismantling the Spurs IN San Ant. It still makes me giddy. Dude should have been a lifer here. We've sucked marbles since he left. Buts thats another story. Classic highlight overshadowed by a 'lowlight'... a dark chasm of disappointment still gripping this team.

Runner up, memorable performance wise might be the very next game....Nash with that 'puncher's face nearly closed eye' nailing the coffin on San Ant once and for all. If either game would have been against Portland or Utah... I doubt the impact would have been so sweet.

Just gonna leave this here...

Crazy that the suns were already down by 19 in the first before DB scored his first points. :o
