Phoenix Suns Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
The young, talented roster of the Phoenix Suns will be fun to watch this season. From Devin Booker to DeAndre Ayton and Mikal Bridges to Ty Jerome, there are players all over this roster. The Suns were only able to win 19 games last season, but now they have allowed their young talent to mature and all the pressure is not on one or two players to change the course of their franchise.
Devin Booker is the undisputed star of the team. Booker is only 22 and is already becoming an NBA veteran. He averages 21.4 PPG in his career, and that figures to go up this season as he will be the main man. Booker is the youngest player in NBA history to score 70 points and became the fifth youngest player to score 5,000 points in the NBA. Booker will lead the charge for the Suns this season.
Phoenix Suns tickets also give fans a chance to see young star DeAndre Ayton. The top draft pick from last season is a walking double-double. He has found his role on the Suns and is dedicated to working on his game to be the best wing man for Booker as they strive to bring a winning culture to the Suns.
Veterans Ricky Rubio and Kelly Oubre Jr. were brougt in this offseason as well to lessen the load for the young stars. The Suns have had so many talented players on their team over the past couple seasons, but have yet to have a collection of talent that meshed together and won games. Will this be the year for the Phoenix Suns?
History of the Phoenix Suns
On January 22, 1968, the NBA awarded expansion teams to two cities, Milwaukee (now the Milwaukee Bucks) and Phoenix. Now, over 40 years later, the Phoenix Suns are one of the most exciting teams in the entire NBA. By getting Phoenix Suns tickets, you are buying the chance at seeing basketball in its purist form. TicketNetwork is a great place to look for Suns tickets, with the best selection of seats at Talking Stick Resort Arena!
From the beginning, the Phoenix Suns showed they were in the NBA for a reason and that reason was to win. Like many expansion teams before them, the Phoenix Suns struggled their way through their first season, finishing with a record of 16-66. But over the following years the Phoenix Suns would start to improve their roster, and only three short years later the team finished with a record of 49-33. In 1976, the Phoenix Suns surprised everyone when in the playoffs they defeated the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors to advance to a series with the Boston Celtics. Although the Phoenix Suns would fall in the series, they would go down in history as having played in arguably the greatest game ever in Game 5 of that series. Down by two with one second remaining on the clock in double overtime, Phoenix Suns forward Gar Heard fired a high arching jump shot at the buzzer to send the game into a third overtime. Prior to the shot, fans at the Boston Garden stormed the court thinking their team had won and had to be ushered off the court. Everyone who had Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix Suns tickets that night were given a show that may never be seen again.
Over nearly the next two decades, the Phoenix Suns and their fans saw many great teams and great players. But it was in 1993 that superstar power forward Charles Barkley was acquired and quickly made Phoenix Suns tickets the hottest ticket in town. Barkley would go on to have one of the all-time great seasons that year, leading the Phoenix Suns to a record of 62-20 and his first MVP award. The Phoenix Suns charged through the NBA Playoffs and reached the NBA Finals for only the second time in franchise history. Unfortunately, Barkley was not enough to push the Phoenix Suns over the top, as they lost the series to the Chicago Bulls in six games. The next era of greatness for the Phoenix Suns included 2x MVP Steve Nash and Amar'e Stoudamire. The dynamic duo led a fast-paced offense and were among the best teams in the league. They reached the Western Conference Finals in 2006, and that was just the beginning of a successful run for the Suns. Phoenix Suns tickets were some of the best in the league at the time as the on-court product was so fun to watch. In 2007, the Suns reached their third straight Western Conference Finals, but were again thwarted by the San Antonio Spurs. The series was controversial and went to six games before the Spurs finished them off. The franchise has not been the same since, but the Suns are looking to get back to the glory days of deep runs in the playoffs. TicketNetwork can help you find hard-to-get Phoenix Suns tickets.
