Don't look now but the Suns are only a half game out of the 8th seed in the West. A couple months ago it didn't seem like Phoenix had any chance of being a contender and the idea of trading Steve Nash made sense. Well, they held onto the veteran point guard who's leading the league with 11.3 APG. That's right, these young'ns don't have shit on grandpa Nash. #noshots —Ralph Warner
