The Western Conference Finalist Phoenix Suns haven't got much respect from the "experts" who predict NBA teams and they get similar treatment from the NBA 2k11 team rankings.
Interestingly enough, the same experts who loved to rag on Amare Stoudemire for his defensive lapses and poor rebounding are convinced that without him the Suns won't be able to rebound and defend the paint.
Not that they are wrong mind you, but it is ironic.
Now we have these leaked screenshots of the NBA 2K11 team rankings via Operation Sports and their number-crunching geeks.
The Suns in their system will have the 13th best offense, the 28th best defense and overall rank 23rd in the NBA behind powerhouses like the Bobcasts (16), Grizzlies (15) and Kings (21).
Fortunately, it's just a video game so you can run out and buy it, assemble your own Suns roster and kick some ass.
Here's how all the teams rank.
