Going .500 for the week wouldn't really have been anything for the Suns to cheer about back in the mid 2000s but they'll take it in 2012. Then again the only contender they faced was the Dallas Mavericks who routed them by 20-plus points. When beating the Bobcats by six is something to be proud about you know your squad is mediocre at best. With no serious or big name trade rumors going on in Phoenix it seems like the front office is just accepting this season as an L. Sorry, Suns fans. —Ralph Warner
