At the end of the —95 season , Phoenix general manager Bryan Colangelo , the son of Jerry, initiated an eventually costly trade, [ citation needed ] sending the All-Star Majerle and a first round draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for John "Hot Rod" Williams.

Majerle was a fan favorite in Phoenix and in the Suns' locker room. The Suns posted a 41—41 record and were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the San Antonio Spurs.

Westphal was fired midway through the season and replaced by Fitzsimmons, his third stint as head coach.

Three of the four players were not with the franchise one year later, and two of the most talented players Horry and Cassell constantly clashed with the coach and seemed to be a negative influence in the locker room.

Upon hearing the draft announcement, Suns fans booed in disapproval of the relatively unknown player, because he had not played in one of the major college conferences.

After the Barkley trade, the Suns began the —97 season 0—13, a franchise record for the worst start. During the game losing streak, Fitzsimmons stepped down as the coach and was replaced by former player Danny Ainge.

Cassell was later traded to Dallas for all-star guard Jason Kidd. With a mostly small lineup, the Suns put together an game win streak that put them in the playoffs as the seventh seed , in a series that almost upset the favored Sonics.

However, even with the return of Kidd in the next round, the Suns fell to the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers in a 4—1 series. The Suns continued to make the playoffs until the —02 season when they fell short for the first time in 14 years.

That season marked the trade of Jason Kidd, partly due to a publicized domestic violence episode, [ citation needed ] to the New Jersey Nets for Stephon Marbury.

With the resultant high draft pick, the Suns were able to draft Amar'e Stoudemire. He became the first high school-drafted player to win the NBA Rookie of the Year for the —03 season, during which the Suns posted a record of 44—38 and returned to the playoffs.

The —06 NBA season began with Stoudemire undergoing microfracture surgery in his knee on October 18, , missing all but three games that season.

Shooting guard Joe Johnson also demanded a sign-and-trade deal to the Atlanta Hawks , in which the Suns got Boris Diaw and two future first round picks.

Other acquisitions included Raja Bell and Kurt Thomas. Despite the turnover in players, the Suns again won the Pacific Division , going 54—28 and capturing the second seed in the Western Conference.

After winning the first game in Phoenix, they found themselves trailing in the series 3—1 after impressive performances [ clarification needed ] by Lakers' shooting guard Kobe Bryant.

However, the Suns went on to win three straight games. Bell earned a technical foul, his second of the game, and an automatic ejection.

The Suns took game six in overtime, their first overtime win all season, despite 50 points from Bryant and Bell out serving a one-game suspension with last-second help from mid-season acquisition Tim Thomas.

On their home court, the Suns won game seven —90, eliminating the Lakers for the first time since The Suns became only the eighth team in NBA history to win a playoff series after being behind 3—1.

In the second round, the Suns faced the Los Angeles Clippers. The series was played closely, with both teams trading games on each other's courts.

The Celtics have somehow managed to claw their way back to within five with 1: This is a game they absolutely don't deserve to win, but have given themselves a chance to.

NBA games are a very long 48 minutes — and this game might be just long enough for the Celtics to get back into it, despite their horrific first half.

They've begun the second half by hitting eight of their first 11 shots to raise their shooting percentage for the game to At halftime, Phoenix leads Boston Kyrie Irving — who is the only Celtic starter to score a point, let alone make a basket — has 13 points.

The other starters are The Celtics as a team are , and have 10 turnovers. A truly horrendous display of basketball. Things just keep getting worse for the Celtics, who now have more turnovers 8 than made field goals Phoenix leads , and Boston doesn't look like it's going to get into gear anytime soon.

As the Celtics continue to be reprehensible offensively now from the floor here is one ray of hope for Boston fans: It's hard to play worse than Boston just did in the first quarter.

Multiple wide open misses from three, as well as from point-blank range — combined with the Suns shooting 59 percent — have Phoenix up after one.

Phoenix is now up , as Boston remains mired in a horrible shooting slump overall, from 3. So much for the Celtics getting back on track offensively — at least early on here in Phoenix.

The Suns lead five minutes in, after the Celtics have opened the game 1-for — including several wide open misses from either three or in the paint.

Gordon Hayward will play tonight against the Phoenix Suns. Unless he has a physical setback during tonight's game, he also will play tomorrow in Utah.

For the first eleven seasons of their existence in the NBA, the Suns had no official mascot, but some years later this mascot was born by accident.

A messenger for Eastern Onion, a singing telegram service, came to the Coliseum during a home game dressed as a gorilla.

As he left, Coliseum security suggested he do a few dances underneath the basket during a timeout and the fans loved it.

So did the messenger, who kept coming to games until he was officially invited to be part of the team. And this is how this mascot was accidentally born.

The messenger, a quiet young man named Henry Rojas, was anything but quiet in his costume. An early attempt was made involving a sunflower costume, but it never caught on.

Affectionately nicknamed "Go" and towering at a whopping five-foot "ape", the Gorilla is the Phoenix Suns favorite primate. Most notably, fans are familiar with the Gorilla for his on the court antics where he raises the Phoenix Suns flag in the name of team-pride, performs notorious slam dunk routines and fires up the crowd.

From his early days in the Banana Republic to his education at Fur-man University, the Gorilla has always had a passion for basketball.

Before his debut with the Phoenix Suns, the Gorilla delivered singing telegrams. However, in the Gorilla's fate changed when he stepped onto the court during a game and surprised unsuspecting players and fans.

His antics became an instant hit and the Gorilla has been a member of the Phoenix Suns ever since. The Gorilla would do a few push-ups on the court, then head off in a quest to climb the stairs of both the lower and upper level of the Coliseum to get to the top.

When he got there, the crowd would explode. Also, one of his more beloved skits was at a Knicks home game where he came out to Frank Sinatra's Theme from New York , wearing a hat, with several pieces of garbage stuck to his leg.

Halfway through the song, a group of "muggers" attacked him, and he staggered off the court afterward. Give him credit, The Gorilla has always been more than a slapstick comedian.

In a way, though, that's what makes The Gorilla so much fun. He's not really there just to cheer on the Suns — although he does so with great enthusiasm.

The Gorilla just wants to have fun and wants the rest of us to have fun with him. Though Rojas has gone on to a life without a costume, The Gorilla continues to entertain fans, not only at Suns games but around the country as well.

He has gotten involved over the years in numerous charity projects. Anytime people see him, however, two things come to mind — Suns basketball and fun!

There was one attempt to create a Suns-related mascot, with a sunflower costume. The idea, however, never really caught on. These days, the king of the jungle now rules as the dean of NBA mascots after his induction into the Mascot Hall of Fame.

The Gorilla makes over appearances a year with charities, schools, hospitals and local businesses. He can also be found around the United States at various sporting events.

When the Gorilla is not working he enjoys long walks on the court, high flying slam dunks and eating bananas. Go has been played by three different men since his inception as their mascot.

Bob Woolf took over the role afterward, and he helped introduce some of the biggest staples Go holds. He performed as the Gorilla from the —89 NBA season until the —06 season.

Bob Woolf ended up resuming his role as Go once Devin Nelson left, fulfilling his role as the all-time best mascot.
