There's one major difference. We got Tyson Chandler.
It's what those super Suns teams in the Nash-STAT era didn't have. A center who COULD run and play defense.
Don't bring up the Shaq bullsh*t. T-Chandler is the perfect defensive athletic center that thrives in D'ants system offensively, and is just an anchor defensively.
If Melo plays the right way, then we will be better than that Suns team.
