Defense wins championships. It’s an adage as old as the game itself and the Phoenix Suns ignored it to everyone’s delight. With free agent acquisition Steve Nash at the helm, joined by Joe Johnson, Shawn Marion and Amare Stoudemire on the break, the Suns almost literally ran circles around the competition through their ‘Seven Seconds or Less’ philosophy. Even made baskets became an opportunity to push the tempo. Phoenix led the league in scoring, racing to a league best 62 wins, Marion and Stoudemire became All Stars and Nash was awarded the MVP for his efforts. The good times stopped rolling once they ran into San Antonio and a five game thrashing in the Conference Finals, but this remains as one of, if not the, most efficient and entertaining offenses we’ve ever seen.
