The Phoenix Suns find themselves below .500 this season, and the resulting tension is palpable among key players, most notably Kevin Durant.

Of course, as goes for any normal player, when your team is losing, frustration begins to mount. However, now, some people are calling for Durant to get out of Phoenix before it is too late.

Former NBA player Brandon Jennings, echoing the sentiments of many fans, believes Durant deserves better than the challenges the Suns are currently grappling with.

This commentary follows ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski’s revelation that the Suns “can feel the frustration with (Kevin) Durant.”

The Christmas Day game against the Mavericks only added fuel to the fire, with some fans questioning Durant’s effort and commitment. Despite maintaining an impressive average of over 30 points per game this season, Durant scored a season-low 16 points on 4-11 shooting during this rivalry matchup.

However, it is crucial to consider the broader context of the Suns’ struggles. Injuries have played a significant role in hindering the team’s success. With two-thirds of the season still ahead, it’s premature for the front office to make hasty decisions or succumb to overreactions.

Promisingly, the Suns anticipate the return of key players in the coming weeks. Bradley Beal is set to make a comeback in January, while Jusuf Nurkic’s return to the starting lineup is imminent. These reinforcements signal a potential turnaround for the team, offering hope for brighter days ahead.

Even Damion Lee, who has been sidelined all season due to injuries, remains optimistic. In a heartfelt message to fans at the Footprint Center, he urged them to “stick with us.” Lee’s words serve as a reminder that, despite the current challenges, the Suns still have plenty of games remaining on the schedule to get back to where they want to be.
