Suns still feel good about themselves

Stevenash_300 The Phoenix Suns lost the first two Western Conference finals playoff games to the Lakers in Los Angeles.

The Suns allowed an average of 126 points in those games.

They are in an 0-2 hole with Game 3 on Sunday night at US Airways Center.

The Suns have had three days off to prepare for the Lakers and to get their minds straight for the task ahead.

"We feel good," Suns guard Steve Nash said after practice Saturday. "We didn't feel so good coming home from L.A. But we've had a day or so to get our energy back. We feel positive and optimistic and we're just excited that we have the opportunity to play better to try and get a win."

Lamar Odom calling Matt Barnes a monkey is cracking me up. But Barnes does look like a Japanese anime monkey character from somewhere. Was it Chim Chim from Speed Racer? No, I don;t think so.


Can we have a game please?

I've said it before and I'll say it again...
"SUCK THE FUNS!!!"

Well, at least there are 12 people in Phoenix who feel good about the Suns' chances in this series.

Dear Andrew Bynum,

"Greg, if it makes you feel better and helps speed your recovery to think we're alike, then that's cool. It would be nice to finally get a chance to play against you. I've been waiting a couple of years now. Of course, you need be realistic in your future endeavors, lest you disappoint yourself for failing to meet your goals (again). By suggesting that you did as much as I did in my first two years, you are demonstrating signs of senility more appropriate to someone as old as you look rather than as old as you are. Give me a shout when you back down Shaq for a dunk as a rookie. Oh, too late."

Drew, that was cold. You know I'm sensitive when people say I look old, or when they call me the 40 year old virgin. I thought we were tight. I've never made any Tracy Morgan references about your looks, so let's keep this civil.

I'm currently rehabbing by knee, and don't worry, I've kept my expectations low. They told me I'd be back on the court in a month, but I don't expect to be back for another 6 months. Since I look up to you, I've adapted your recovery schedule. I hope you don't mind.

I remember that dunk you made on Shaq as a rookie like it was yesterday. That was awesome! It must be nice to have your only, I mean greatest achievement as a pro during your rookie year. Oh yes, the good old days of yore. I have a buddy that I want to introduce you to. I promise that you guys will hit it off. You guys are like two peas in a pod. I can just picture you guys reminiscing about the good ole glory days when you dunked on Shaq, and when he scored 6 touchdowns in a single game. You might know him, his name is Al Bundy.

Anyways, I wish you the best of luck. You've wasted 5 years of Kobe's prime by being hurt all the time. Please don't make it six years in a row. I feel your pain (as well as Kobe's). Anyways, good luck in the finals.

Sincerely,

Gregory Oden

WHAT ELSE ARE THE SUNS GOING TO SAY? THE LAKERS ARE GOING TO SWEEP US? HA HA
