List Rules Please rank the players based only on their time with the Suns

They may retire, but the sun never sets for the best Phoenix Suns players of all time. But among these stars, who shines the brightest? Fans decide in this crowd voted ranking of the best Suns players ever. Support your favorite players by voting them up to get them higher in the rankings. If you notice someone is missing from this list, feel free to add him to this list. 

Formed in 1968, the Phoenix Suns have had a long history of success. But the one thing that the franchise continues to chase is its first NBA championship. Historically, the Suns featured a high flying offensive attack. Phoenix has taken part in some of the most memorable games in NBA history featuring some of the greatest players of all time. A number of Suns players have made selected to the All-NBA First Team. Players like Connie Hawkins, Paul Westphal, and Dennis Johnson are examples from the Suns early years to have achieved that honor.

Two of the greatest Suns players ever are Steve Nash and Charles Barkley.They are among the greatest players to never win a championship. Both won league MVP awards (Nash won it in back-to-back years in 2005 and 2006) and carried Phoenix deep into the playoffs. However, the Suns only made the NBA Finals once under Barkley and zero times with Nash. Both players were part of the most entertaining teams in the NBA. Their teams featured talented stars like Kevin Johnson, Amare Stoudemire and Shawn Marion, but ultimately, not even outstanding players like Nash and Barkley could push the Suns over the proverbial hump.

Despite the number of outstanding players who have worn the Phoenix Suns uniform, none have been inducted into the Hall of Fame as a Suns player. This could change when Nash eventually gets the call. Until then, vote or rerank this list according to who you think is the greatest Phoenix Suns player in franchise history.
