ORIGINAL HOME COURT
The Suns played their first 24 seasons at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, affectionately nicknamed the “Madhouse on McDowell”.
Since entering the league in 1968, the Suns own a .541 (2146-1824) winning percentage, the fourth-best mark all-time in the NBA.
The Suns have qualified for the playoffs in 29 of their 49 seasons. The Suns have reached the NBA Finals twice: In just the eighth year of the franchise’s existence, the 1976 “Sunderella Suns” made an improbable run to the NBA Finals for the first time in team history and in 1993 Charles Barkley, the league MVP that year, led the Suns to the NBA Finals against the Chicago Bulls.
In 1992, the Suns moved into Talking Stick Resort Arena (previously known as America West Arena and US Airways Center) their current home in downtown Phoenix.
