2 new Phoenix Suns shows debut this week on FOX Sports Arizona
The Phoenix Suns tip off the season one week from tonight, and beginning this evening on FOX Sports Arizona, a pair of new Suns shows are set to roll out in order to get fans ready for the 2015-16 campaign.
"We Are PHX — The Suns Preseason Special" premieres tonight at 7:30 p.m. on FOX Sports Arizona. It’s a half-hour look ahead to the upcoming season, and here’s what fans can expect to see:
–The addition of veteran center Tyson Chandler — a look at his influence and leadership and how it’s paying dividends for the young roster.
–Former teammates Tom Chambers and Jeff Hornacek talk about not only the good old days but this year’s team as they drive to work together.
–Eric Bledsoe stayed in Phoenix all summer to rededicate himself to his craft. Go behind the scenes with him on his typical day to see what his workouts were like.
–Jeff Hornacek put his players through a very different kind of team building exercise the last day of training camp — something they haven’t done since they were kids.
–The Fanfest and scrimmage at Veterans Memorial Coliseum rekindled lots of "Madhouse" memories.
–Eddie Johnson chimes in with how he sees certain roles playing out for the Suns forwards.
–The goosebump-producing "We Are PHX" video (below) that drew rave reviews.
Then on Friday, Oct. 23 — one week before Steve Nash goes into the Suns Ring of Honor – fans can watch "NASH13 Powered by APS" at 7 p.m. It’s an entertaining look back at Nash’s legendary NBA career, highlighted by his unforgettable run with Suns. Fans can also hear from current members of the Suns Ring of Honor as they welcome him into the exclusive club, Nash talks about what playing in Phoenix meant to him, and other Valley sports stars such as Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald, Paul Goldschmidt and Luis Gonzalez give their thoughts on another Phoenix sports icon.
The Suns open the 2015-16 season on Oct. 28 at home versus Dallas. It’s the first of 79 Suns games on FOX Sports Arizona and FOX Sports Arizona Plus this season. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. on FOX Sports Arizona with the "Suns Live" pre-game show. Tipoff follows at 7 p.m. Suns games are also available for streaming on mobile devices, tablets and computers with FOX Sports GO. Check www.FOXSportsGO.com for more information.
