Great conversation. I’m a lifelong Suns fan and have seen that cycle firsthand.
Brandon, your last comment has me intrigued: who are the 4 title teams without a superstar? 2004 Pistons for sure. 2014 Spurs, likely. Who else? Isaiah Thomas’ 1989 and 90 Pistons? He’s maybe a superstar. Or 1999 Spurs, with the Admiral on the way down and Duncan not there yet?
