The Phoenix Suns have had one of their better seasons in recent memory and they are still still fighting for the 8th and final playoff spot in the NBA's Western Conference.  Recently F Markieff Morris indicated that the Suns' surprising success is the reason that he thinks he deserves the NBA's Sixth Man Award. 

“Coming off the bench with energy, scoring, rebounding, making my teammates better and winning games, especially when we were supposed to win 17,” Morris said. “When you’re supposed to win 17 and you got a guy like me averaging 14 points and we might pull off a playoff run 15 or 16 games above .500. You knew the Clippers (Jamal Crawford reference) were going to be good. You knew the Bulls (Taj Gibson reference) were going to be good, with or without D (Derrick) Rose. Y’all thought we were going after a Number 1 pick. I think I deserve Sixth Man Award for the team success.”
