Goran Dragic was all about the tricks this Halloween.
The Phoenix Suns guard pulled an amazing prank on his teammates, and it involved a baby Tyrannosaurus rex.
Well, obviously it wasn’t a real T-Rex, but the animatronic puppet that Dragic employed is unbelievably lifelike. Needless to say, when his teammates saw it run out from behind a curtain at US Airways Center, they went...
This is classic. Phoenix Suns’ guard Goran Dragic pulled a Halloween prank on his teammates. Dragic had a fake dinosaur hidden to pop up on his teammates, coach and even Suns’ owner Robert Saver. The only guy who didn’t fall for the banana in the tailpipe, Gerald Green.
If you just want to see the reactions, skip ahead to the 3:30 mark.

Who knew Goran Dragic was this good at Halloween pranks. The Suns point guard set up a fierce semi-machine operated dinosaur near the entrance to the Suns practice facility.
one-by-one, Suns players encountered the baby T-Rex, some laughing it off, and some like Eric Bledsoe really running for their lives.
The Suns owner, Robert Sarver, was truly frightened.

Nothing better than the old “extinct carnivore scaring the crap out of people” prank. Watch Gerald Green having none of Goran Dragic’s nonsense, especially after what transpired during last year’s Halloween prank. Also, good to know that Archie Griffin’s plan to fight off a ferocious animal is attempting to box it. I never know how Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
The Phoenix Suns were very happy to agree to a deal with free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas, and he is already looking like a great addition to their rotation. He will fit into the Suns’ plans very well, but he didn’t originally want to sign with the Suns and actually had a team that he wanted to play for picked out. According to an interview that Thomas did with Grantland...

The people who find the statistics for television graphics during sporting events have to work quickly, so they understandably make mistakes every once in a while.
But we have no idea what the Phoenix Suns were trying to tell their viewers with this graphic.

Isaiah Thomas is a point guard who is most-known for being the NBA’s version of Mr. Irrelevant, but also as someone who defied all expectations in becoming a 20-points-per-game scorer with the Sacramento Kings. Thomas, or “IT”, as he is called, signed a 4-year, $27 million contract with the Phoenix Suns this off season, and

During the third quarter of the Suns' pre-season game against the Clippers, Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe pulled off a sweet crossover while being guarded by L.A.'s Jared Cunningham.
What happened next
PHOENIX -- Coach Jeff Hornacek called an early end to the Suns' final preseason practice Tuesday, sensing his team already was in regular-season mode. Players agreed.
"You could tell in practice everybody's vibe ... everybody is ready and focused," point guard Eric Bledsoe said.
The Suns open Hornacek's second season against the Los Angeles Lakers at US Airways...
PHOENIX -- On the cusp of season two in this Suns renaissance, we're getting comfortable with the team's position on positions.
They don't really worry about 'em.
So, with this commitment to thinking of basketball players as basketball players and refusing to place positional limits on anybody, judging the roster can be tricky.
But that didn't prevent us from...
PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns on Monday exercised their 2015-16 options on guard Archie Goodwin, center Alex Len and center Miles Plumlee.
As a rookie with the Suns last season, Goodwin played in 52 games and averaged 3.7 points and 10.2 minutes. The 29th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Goodwin scored a career-high 29 points on 11-of-13 shooting in the Suns' 2013-14 season...
The Phoenix Suns have exercised their third-year options on Alex Len and Archie Goodwin, according to league sources.
Len was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, while Goodwin was drafted at No. 29.
As the Suns look to transition from plucky upstarts to legitimate Western Conference threats, a push toward the postseason -- beginning with Wednesday's season opener against the Lakers -- depends on several issues.
Here are five:
OK, we could recommend you pay close attention to coach Jeff Hornacek's commitment to keeping two point guards on the floor at...
The Phoenix Suns have waived center Earl Barron. A seven-year NBA veteran, Barron signed with the Suns on Sept. 26. In six preseason appearances, Barron averaged 3.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes. The Suns' roster now stands at 15 players.
Phoenix Suns’ rookie forward TJ Warren, the 14th overall pick in the NBA draft, has a cracked bone in his left thumb. Team officials say there is no timetable for his return, and he is being treated with a splint and rest. He fractured the bone during Tuesday night’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers, jamming it into a Lakers player. The post Suns’ TJ Warren out...
Suns guard Eric Bledsoe delivered one of the best plays of the preseason thus far with a vicious crossover on Wednesday night. In the third quarter of the Clippers-Suns preseason game, Bledsoe noticed that Clippers guard Jared Cunningham was caught flat-footed while trying to guard him. Bledsoe took advantage of it, and suddenly went right at Cunningham at full speed—making...
It’s that magical time of year in the NBA, when hope springs eternal and all teams think that the upcoming season will be their best ever. While some teams will surely be rising up, the same amount will be rising down, with the rest floating along treading water (rising sideways). Since we at The Hoops Manifesto are always 100% accurate with our predictions, we’ve taken the...
Phoenix Suns point guard Isaiah Thomas hit a jump shot at the buzzer to force overtime, then stared down boxer Floyd Mayweather in the front row, during Tuesday night's preseason game against the L.A. Lakers.Thomas was in the perfect spot to grab the rebound of Gerald Green's missed three-pointer, and he sank the jumper to tie the game at 94-94 and force OT. After making...
Jason Whitney There are a few people in the NBA that you will never win a beef with and San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is one of them.

Fans who attended Thursday’s preseason game between the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs didn’t exactly witness the best basketball, and Suns owner Robert Sarver wasn’t happy about that fact.
