The Phoenix Suns have yet to win a championship, but they’re still the NBA’s fourth winningest franchise of all time. Who are their 25 best?
A lot of NBA fans write off the Phoenix Suns when discussing the greatest NBA franchises. Because of their lack of a championship, it’s easy to talk about the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs first while laughing about even suggesting the Suns in that conversation.
But did you know Phoenix is the NBA’s winningest team to have never won a title?
Since they were founded in 1968, the Suns have been to the playoffs 29 times, they’ve posted 19 seasons of at least 50 wins and have been to the Western Conference Finals nine times. The Suns became the fourth fastest team to reach 2,000 wins in January 2013 and they are also the fourth winningest franchise in NBA history.
That lack of a championship has long haunted Suns supporters everywhere, but make no mistake about it: this team has seen its fair share of all-time NBA greats. In order to add some perspective to this team’s history, here’s a look at the 25 greatest Phoenix Suns of all time.
