For the past couple of years, the Pheonix Suns have hosted an amazing outdoor game in Indian Wells, CA. This year the Suns hosted the Dallas Mavericks, edging the Mavs 98 to 90. 
I was lucky enough to be invited last year to enjoy the game with the Suns and Autotrader VIPs. The atmosphere is something else. No where else in the NBA can you enjoy being sandwiched between the stars in the sky and those on the court with a spectacular view of both. 
I wish the NBA would adopt this game as a regular season feature or perhaps even the All-Star event. 
Enjoy the video that was made by a very talented friend of mine, Armen Soudjian.

Forget the Big Three in South Beach, I’m super excited to see Josh Childress’ afro in Phoenix this season.

The Phoenix Suns didn’t want their summer to be defined by losing Amar’e Stoudemire to the New York Knicks, and they made sure of it Sunday night with two major deals, acquiring veteran forward Hedo Turkoglu from the Toronto Raptors for guard Leandro Barbosa and agreeing to a trade with the Atlanta Hawks that will bring restricted free agent Josh Childress, whose rights the Hawks still hold, to Phoenix in exchange for a second-round pick. Childress will receive a five-year, $34 million deal from Phoenix.

NBA.com: Suns to Acquire Hedo Turkoglu, Josh Childress

Hedo’s Pizza Party is coming to Phoenix (insert your own Arizona immigration laws joke here).

Also, this deal will mark Childress’ return to the league after playing in Greece for two seasons. No word if Childress is a fan of the Chillwave movement.

And just like that, all the national goodwill Phoenix built up with the “Los Suns” jerseys completely evaporated.

Jason Richardson goes into the crowd after a loose ball. Not pictured: Arizona Cardinals LB Joey Porter, who caught J-Rich when he landed in Porter’s lap.  Former Steelers agree that Ben Roethlisberger probably would have let Richardson crash to the floor untouched.
After the game, J-Rich and Porter are gonna go out, have a few drinks, and beat the crap out of Levi Jones.

Channing Frye and Ron Artest prepare to battle for the rebound, and with it, the next chance to brick a wide-open three-pointer.

Reason #4,080 why we love the NBA: because inbetween practice and playing games players still manage to find the time to make videos like this. Props to the Phoenix Suns for taking some camera tips from La Blogotheque and that one scene from Almost Famous* where everyone sings along to Elton John (which can probably be said with any Cameron Crowe movie actually) so they can give us this video.

*Sidenote: Adam Morrison should have won an Oscar for his role as Russell Hammond in Almost Famous
