Richardson realizes Suns face big drop-off from the ContraCostaTimes.com
Warriors guard Jason Richardson knows just how much of an impact losing the best player can have on a team. Richardson missed nine straight games last season with a sprained left ankle. The Warriors went 0-9.
So he knows, despite the talent that remains, the Phoenix Suns are going to suffer a drop-off with their most talented player, center Amare Stoudemire, out for at least the first half of the season. Add to that their offseason moves, and this is far from the same Suns team that reached the 2005 Western Conference finals.
