Phoenix Suns: 100-1

You need to make the match, to win a ring. And the Phoenix Suns understand better how hard that can be.
Forty-eight wins didn’t get the job done last year, however, the Suns, undaunted, will provide the punishing Western Conference yet another crack in 2014-15. This time around, they will have Isaiah Thomas rounding a mortal three-guard rotation that–hopefully–may also incorporate the recently paid Eric Bledsoe to get a complete season.
Goran Dragic was an elite performer last year, and he’ll seem to replicate the most impressive individual offensive season we’ve observed in the post-Steve Nash Suns era.
Channing Frye’s death to the Orlando Magic will hamper Phoenix’s spacing on offense, but the group that led the NBA in fast-break points a year ago may play with enough speed to make up for that loss.
The good thing is that the Suns may have yet another superb season and fall short of the playoffs. The fantastic news is they have sufficient limit flexibility to re-sign Dragic next summer and also pursue a major free agent who may put them over the top.
This year will probably be too much pleasure to word a throwaway, but the fact is the Suns are a year away from actually raising their own profile.
