It might not yet have the online fanaticism and cachet of baseball, but the NBA and its fans are starting to catch up in the world of team-devoted blogs. To this end, Deadspin salutes these modem-addled souls and proudly presents Blogdom s Best, given to the most outstanding blog for each NBA team. There are fewer than there are for baseball, but they re out there, if you look. If you would like to nominate a blog (yours, even) for selection, just let us know at email@example.com. Today: The Phoenix Suns.
We're beginning to think that professional sports in Arizona is some sort of a scam — nothing more than a tax writeoff, or maybe a front for a gambling cartel. We could find only one really good Suns blog — kind of the same situation as with the NFL Cardinals, actually. What's the deal? Is it just too damned hot to care? How could one not care about a team with a history that includes Charles Barkley, the Van Arsdales, Connie Hawkins, Jason Kidd and native son Amar Stoudemire? Heck, now we're even considering starting a blog. Well, let's take a look at what we've got.
3. Rising Suns. A good blog gone bad — no new posts since December. Here's hoping they return soon.
2. Hooplog: Phoenix Suns. Hooplog does a good job keeping tabs on all NBA teams. Good thing for Suns fans that they do.
1. Phoenix Suns. Good writing and reporting, with a genuine love for the Suns. Plus, right now they don't really have any competition.
