The Phoenix Suns’ sunburst embodies so much more than just a logo.

Rather, it’s a visual manifestation of decades of memories.

Through over 45 years of Suns basketball, the sunburst (in several forms) has always conveyed warmth (pun intended), comfort and familiarity. Still, perhaps more significantly, each variation has inspired different forms of connectivity with fans – equally impactful, none more important than another.

General Manager Ryan McDonough and Head Coach Jeff Hornacek are looking for a few good men. The question is, which players can “handle the truth” and prove they belong?

That truth will come in the form of the type of player the Suns’ new leadership is looking to build their team around. One that will likely reflect what helped get both men to their new positions, dedication and hard work.
