The Phoenix Suns fanbase is tired of being patient. The losing has taken it’s toll and they are frustrated as they suffer through, yet again, another lost season.
After their recent blowout loss to the Utah Jazz the Suns posted the final score on their official Instagram page and Suns’ fans responded by flooding their comments with a trash can icon.
It’s fair to see how the Suns may want to mimic the approach that the Philadelphia 76ers took to rebuild their team, perfectly described by the slogan “Trust the Process” but it’s hard for Suns fans to buy in.
You can’t blame Suns fans. They organization has given little reason to elicit any sort of faith from fans, Being on the wrong end of a number of questionable trades, no clear plan outlined, some bad draft picks, inner turmoil played out publicly and an unpopular owner, fans have no proven reason to believe that the Suns can build enough around Devin Booker.
Suns fans also may have realized that there is a good chance that superstar Devin Booker is going to compete for titles in a different jersey because, eventually, he’ll get sick of this too.
Maybe the Suns will listen and make some sensible moves at the trade deadline instead on expiring contracts. Maybe they’ll take a swing at another young prospect rather than waste more valuable minutes seeing Dragan Bender struggle to reach mediocrity.
But, those seem like pipedreams and the Suns will enter yet another offseason with no clear plan moving forward, relying on the luck of a bouncing bingo ball to change their fortunes because luck, sadly, dictates the Suns future more than a sound, intelligent plan.
At least Suns fans aren’t being shy about hanging another “L” on Phoenix.
