So began the workouts, the miles run and weights lifted and body reshaped. Bachynski cut McDonald's from his diet.

Phoenix rounded out their rotation with the Morris twins, forwards Markieff and Marcus and guards Ish Smith and Eric Bledsoe, who often twinned with Dragic for a lineup driven by two point guards. Bledsoe is out with a knee injury but expected to return this season.

The Phoenix-area basketball renaissance must continue without pause, he reasoned, as the Suns and the Sun Devils approach the postseason and the Golden Grannies dance like it's 1989 again.
