NBA players getting their own network sitcoms is all the rage these days. After the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade Wade announced he'd be launching his own show on FOX, we figured we'd pitch the network a few shows for our players. Here are your Suns Sitcoms. Which one will they pick up and which will they shutdown.

How I Met Your Brother:
It’s tough being one of three brothers close in age that share the same profession. Such is the plight of Miles Plumlee.
