The annual survey of the NBA's general managers has been released and it's just another sign of the how the Phoenix Suns have fallen. In year's past, the Suns would have been picked to win their division, win the west, have a player in the MVP discussion, and more.
Now, the only mention of the once mighty team who will one day (hopefully soon) rise again from the ashes is a minor mention of Steve Nash.
