Default Phoenix Suns: Best 8th seed ever? Upset potential?

Enough with the Lebron/KD threads...the Suns haven't been talked much about lately but I feel like this team has potential to pull off a HUGE upset. Anyone agree?

I feel like any team that plays unselfishly and fast paced that can shoot can cause issues for the Spurs

The Spurs will systematically pick them apart. The Suns need a star wing player/big and they'll be legit.

Knicks made the Finals as the 8 seed in 1999. Pretty sure they are considered the best 8 seed ever.

Dallas and Memphis have a much better chance for upsetting the top 2 seeds

maybe I'm biased but PHX played most of this season without Bledsoe..he's back and he looks like he never left...PHX matches up with SA pretty well with the exception of Duncan but Plumlee is a lot more mobile and athletic.

Man stop. They aren't even in yet. I will say these games the rest of the season will determine whether they really want to play or go home. Their playoffs actually start tonight. They can't slip but 1 maybe 2 more times. 2 is pushing it.

This is big time disrespect to all of those great WCF 8th seeds who made it in in the late 2000's. There were probably even some 9th and 10th seeds from back then who were better than this Suns team.

Spurs are the absolute worst possible matchup for PHX IMO

Grizz from '11 were good. Warriors from '07.
