Watch the Phoenix Suns for a game or two. You'll probably see a team that certainly could host a home-court series in the Western Conference playoffs, and go even farther.

But then you might have to think about an 82-game schedule and having core players whose best days are behind them. Great players like Steve Nash, Shaquille O'Neal, Grant Hill and NBA all-defensive performer Raja Bell have likely already seen their best days.
