2023 Round-up: Top 3 Phoenix Suns Players

The Phoenix Suns’ journey in 2023 was similar to riding a roller coaster ride with its highest moments and most difficult obstacles they faced. Incredibly, this team surprised everyone and reached the Conference Semifinals against the Denver Nuggets but unfortunately lost 4-2 against them. Despite their lackluster performance this current season, Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Deandre Ayton were bright spots at the bottom.

Here are the Top 3 Phoenix Suns players:

1. Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant had a huge impact despite a season in which he played in a few regular-season games. Durant accomplished what any leader should do at all times, even in the face of opposition, by doubling his average of 26.0 points per game during the eight regular-season games and becoming a high flyer with 29.0 posts. Crucially, though, is that playing in the eleven postseason games determines how well a player handles leadership in any situation. He has been a pillar of strength for the Phoenix Suns because of his on-court accuracy and performance when it counts.

2. Devin Booker

Devin Booker has emerged as the Phoenix Suns’ go-to scorer. When it comes to scoring ability, Booker’s stats were simply amazing. He averaged 33.7 points in 11 postseason games during his time with the Spartans, and he even went above and beyond with an average rate of 27.8 points during the 54 regular-season games he played in. This was significantly higher than any of his teammates’ percentages. Booker’s toughness and scoring ability also serve as a pillar for the Suns, leading from the front when things get tough. Booker’s impact is still a key plot point for Phoenix as he recovers from his injuries and aids in the team’s comeback this season.

3. Deandre Ayton

Deandre Ayton became the Phoenix Suns’ towering leader in 2023 as a genuine center. Ayton was a fierce offensive player as well as an outstanding defensive player, as demonstrated by his amazing averages of 10 rebounds and 18 points per game from 67 regular-season games. As Ayton’s contributions became crucial to the Sun game, they gained incredible power and strategy.
