Bradley Beal: Suns Have All The Pieces For Championship

Say this much for Phoenix Suns shooting guard Bradley Beal — there’s no shortage of confidence that he’s on his way to his first NBA title.Bradley Beal, Phoenix Suns, NBA

“I believe the Suns can win a championship, man,” Beal told Marc J. Spears of Andscape. “We have all the pieces that are necessary. We have unbelievable staff that can best prep us on a nightly basis, and give us all some game plans to follow. Our mentality, our drive; we really want it, we’re really hungry. We have a lot of guys on this team and in this organization that haven’t won at all.

“So, that gives a little bit more push and fight edge to do something historical, like bring a championship to a franchise for the first time. That’s definitely what brought me here. That’s what lured me to this place.”

Beal came to Phoenix before the season via a trade with the Washington Wizards.

The Suns haven’t exactly lived up to expectations, finishing with the sixth seed in the Western Conference despite a roster featuring the likes of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Beal.

But injuries have certainly played a role in that, as the Suns’ Big Three didn’t spend a lot of time together during the regular season. That’s all about to change for the first-round matchup with the third-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves.

Many consider the Suns to be the favorites despite owning the lower seed. Beal seems to be among them.

“Being out there with Book, who’s played in the Finals before. KD has won two (championships),” Beal told Spears. “Damion Lee has got one. Coach (Frank Vogel) has got one. (Assistant coach David Fizdale) has two or three. So, we have the stature in our locker room who’ve won at that level, who knows what it takes to get us there and it’s awesome. We can kind of rely on them for their expertise and helping us get there.”
