On Wednesday night, the Phoenix Suns begin the 2019-20 season with a game against the Sacramento Kings. It’ll be the first chance to see whether the team’s latest reset is successful.

In the NBA, more than half of the teams make the playoffs, but the Suns’ last appearance in the postseason was 2010, but a new General Manager in James Jones and a new Head Coach in Monty Williams have some believing that the team’s direction is at least positive — though almost no unbiased person actually thinks playoffs are in the offing this season.

Gina Mizell is the Suns beat writer for The Athletic and joined The Show to preview the season.
