Like almost everywhere else in Arizona, the City of Phoenix is warm almost year-round. This works for their basketball team, the Suns, who are very hot when it comes to passing the ball! Their skills and valor on the court endear the team to their fans, so rather than fight the crowds, a bright sports fan will book US Airways Center parking ahead of time. The Phoenix Suns have been based in the US Airways Center since 1992. The team has obvious skill and power with the ball, and while they have yet to win the NBA Championship, they have gotten tantalizingly close in the past.
The Phoenix Suns joined the NBA in 1968, alongside the Milwaukee Bucks, and were housed in the AVM Coliseum before the US Airways Center was built. The US Airways Center opened in June of 1992, under the name of America West Arena, which the Suns began to occupy almost immediately. Early in their career, the Suns encountered a dazzling ray of promise and hope when they faced off against the Boston Celtics for the NBA Championship in 1976, facing withering assaults by John Havlicek and Dave Cowens. The games went back and forth until Game 5 at the Boston Garden, when Phoenix’s Paul Westphal called an illegal timeout and Boston used bench player Glenn McDonald to turn the tide. This culminated in Game 6, which Boston won by a shave - 87-80, the wily Celtics proving they were unlike Icarus, and instead outlasted the Sun(s).
In 1992, Charles Barkley joined the Suns, winning his first MVP Award in 1993 when they reached the finals once again, ironically under the command of Paul Westphal, who by this time had became coach. Facing the immortal Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls, the Suns once again tried to blind their opponents with skill, but in this case it was not enough. Even with triple overtime in the third game of the Championship, the Bulls had them beat, winning the Championship 4-2.
In addition to hosting the Phoenix Suns, the US hosted the Phoenix Coyotes (former Winnipeg Jets) from 1996 until 2003, when the transfer team moved to the Jobing.com Arena. The stadium is additionally a great concert venue, and is noted for have hosted one of the last public performances of Frank Sinatra. More recent musical guests include Beyoncé, Madonna, Black Sabbath, Jimmy Buffett, Nine Inch Nails, Muse, The Black Keys, the Foo Fighters, P!nk and Lady Gaga. Past special events at the venue include the 1993 NBA Finals against the Bulls, some of boxer Oscar de la Hoya’s early fights, Julio Cesar Chavez’s last fight, and the 1993 and ‘95 All-Star Games. When it’s scorching outside, a Suns fan shouldn’t be looking for US Airways Center parking; instead, they should use ParkWhiz to book a Suns parking spot, and let the scorching happen inside the stadium.
