    Suns GOAT?

    A buddy and I, fans of other teams, just got into a discussion randomly as to who is considered the Suns GOAT. I wasn't sure if Nash is just the consensus, or if others are in the discussion. Looking at career leaders, Walter Davis and Shawn Marion definitely also jump out, but I just wanted to know from this forum what is the general thought re: a Suns GOAT.

    Nash, he made the players around him better, he ran the high octane offense that other teams copied, he led the Suns to the WCF, he won two MVP's against the likes of Kobe, Lebron , Wade and Shaq, led the league in assists in some years,

    sure Barkley led PHO to the NBA Finals but they lost, had the Suns won, he would arguably be the GOAT

    the difference between Barkley and Nash was as great a player as Barkley was, Nash literally carried the team, even the so-called other stars that played with him were dependent on him

    in my opinion

    Nash because he was here for a long period of time and he helped change the way the game is played today. Despite not reaching the finals, he led this team to its most success.

    KJ. He was a better all-round PG than Nash and has better career numbers.

    KJ > Nash in the following statistics:

    PPG
    APG
    RPG
    SPG
    BPG
    FG% (yes, a surprise even for me)

    PER
    DRtg
    DWS
    WS/48

    Why didn't more Suns fans post in this thread?

    Nash is a shoein for the Ring of Honor but does anyone think Amar'e or Marion will be added some day? And do a lesser extent, Hill?

    If I had to pick one, it would be Marion. Amar'e I don't feel like he did enough here. Hill I always felt like he needed to finish his career in Phoenix to be added.

    Nash or Johnson for greatest Sun of all time.

    And King, I think both Marion and Amare will eventually end up in the ring. Hill... I kinda doubt it.

    I think Hill can be inducted if he comes back to PHX as an executive or coach and is succesful at it.

    I'd like to see Hill back with the Suns as a coach or Scout or something but I think if he's going to do that he'll probably go back to Orlando.

    As for the question in the OP, I'd say it's between KJ and Nash. I want to say Nash but that might just be because everything he did with the Suns is still fresh in my mind.
