Phoenix put up the best fight against the reigning champion Denver Nuggets in last year’s postseason, which should be a positive sign heading into this season. Further, the Suns were missing their starting point guard, Chris Paul, who missed another massive chunk of the playoffs due to untimely injuries. Ultimately, Phoenix decided to move on from CP3 and brought in All-Star Bradley Beal to fill his shoes.

That wasn’t the only move that the Suns decided to make this off-season, though, as they also got involved in a three-team trade with Portland and Milwaukee. The Suns traded away Deandre Ayton for Nurkic, Grayson Allen, and Nassir Little; they also brought in a boatload of players to add bench depth, including Eric Gordon, Drew Eubanks, Yuta Watanabe, Josh Okogie, Bol Bol, and others.

If these two huge trades (Beal and Nurkic) work out, the Phoenix Suns’ front office will look like geniuses. Phoenix has a small championship window with Durant now in his mid-30s and Beal in his early-30s, but this is definitely a team that could rattle off a championship or two before it is all said and done. Take a look at all of the Suns’ strengths and weaknesses below.

Reasons Why Phoenix Suns Can & Can’t Win 2023-24 NBA Championship 

Strengths

  • Shot Creation & Making: Because defenses tighten up in the playoffs and force more half-court possessions, having multiple self-shot creators is essential. Additionally, making tough clutch shots, despite poor shot quality, can win a series in the playoffs. Phoenix owns three of the best in this department, as Durant, Beal, and Booker can score on anyone. Booker has had trouble with double teams in the past, but that’s not an issue anymore, especially because the attention will be focused on Durant – perhaps the greatest three-level scorer in NBA history. Additionally, Bradley Beal will pull some defenders away from Durant and Booker, too; he can’t be left open for clean looks. Phoenix also was able to build out its bench, acquiring Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon, who are more than capable of knocking down threes at a near-40% clip, which will make double-teaming Durant, Booker, and Beal nearly impossible.
  • Star Power: The playoffs revolve around stars, and Durant, Booker, and Beal form a lethal big three for Phoenix. The Suns will be able to pour it on offensively against opponents; how can opponents stop three of the best pure scorers in the NBA today? Based solely on star power, Phoenix matches up with anybody, including the Denver Nuggets, Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors, and Boston Celtics.
  • Finals Experience: Durant has been to four Finals and has won two (he was injured for one of the Finals losses). Booker has also been there. Therefore, they should be able to deal with the pressure better than most teams. Still, this advantage does not hold substantial weight at the moment, as Miami, Denver, Los Angeles (Lakers), Boston, Golden State, and Milwaukee all have championship DNA. NBA Finals experience itself will not be enough.
  • Depth: What was once a weakness just a few months ago could now be a perceived strength, as Phoenix somehow turned water into wine. The Suns were able to bring in Bradley Beal, Jusuf Nurkic, Eric Gordon, Yuta Watanabe, Bol Bol, Grayson Allen, Nassir Little and Drew Eubanks while losing Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton. All of those players are capable of contributing in more minor roles for Phoenix this upcoming season.

Weaknesses

  • Injury History: In the past several years, Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal have missed a substantial amount of time due to injuries. Unfortunately, age is not exactly on their side either, as both are in their 30s. While the Suns were able to move on from Chris Paul, a player who has missed a lot of postseason time recently, they didn’t exactly bring in an “Ironman,” as far as injuries are concerned. Additionally, by trading Deandre Ayton for Jusuf Nurkic, Phoenix is flirting with potential disaster; Nurkic has not played in more than 56 games since the 2018-19 season. When he’s available, he can be a starting center for a contender that boasts a lot of wing talent (i.e., Phoenix), but there are no guarantees he can stay healthy either.
  • Point Guard Play: What do Eric Gordon, Grayson Allen, and Bradley Beal all have in common? They aren’t true point guards. In trading Chris Paul for Beal, the Phoenix Suns are going “all-in” on the idea that they can start two shooting guards and figure everything else out. Allen and Gordon will be leaned on to fill in the gaps, too. This experiment is a risk, despite all of the talent the Suns have.
