Boy, the Suns are setting themselves up nicely for the
future. Let's see; Matrix, Stat, LB, Banks, Raja,
and hopefully Boris will all be locked up for the
long haul. Not to mention all the draft picks we'll
have in the next couple of seasons. This is how you build a TEAM!!!

I agree set, this was a great signing, Barbosa is going to be a instant offense of the bench and having Barbosa along side Banks we are going to have one of the if not the fastest back courts in the NBA.

Imagine having this lineup up out there:
PG-Marcus Banks
SG-Leandro Barbosa
SF-Shawn Marion
PF-Boris Diaw
C-Amare Stoudimire

Talk about speed!!
Now in defense we could have out there:
PG-Marcus Banks
SG-Raja Bells
SF-Shawn Marion
PF-Jomaine Jones
C-Kurt Thomas
d-fence! d-fence! d-fence! d-fence!
What if you need to score in the closing seconds you could put:
PG-Steve Nash
SG-Leandro Barbosa
SF-Raja Bell
PF-Boris Diaw
C-Amare Stoudimire

Phx Suns Fans it is time to get excited and get ready for the ride to an NBA Championship!!!

Go Suns!!!!!!!!!1
