The NBA would not be the same if it weren’t for the mid-2000s Phoenix Suns. Led by offensive guru Mike D’Antoni, the Suns played an open, up-tempo, outside-centric style which took the league by storm. The key to unlocking Phoenix’s run was the acquisition of Steve Nash from the Dallas Mavericks, who went on to win two MVPs while quarterbacking the top offensive attack in the league. Nash’s running mates were a pair of the most athletic forwards in the league, Stoudamire and Marion. The trio played together for four years, winning 54-plus games in each season and making two Conference Finals appearances until management foolishly dealt Marion to Miami for an aging Shaquille O’Neal.
