Like I said in another post, they'd probably do it anyway, despite what Steve Nash has to say. He has a bit of a political streak in him. The Spurs were ready to do the same thing, but couldn't get the jerseys made in time. Ka-ching!

It's Cinco de Mayo! Perfect hump day excuse for a drink or 5!

One thing I'd suggest is that if The Suns are now going to be more politically involved, PLEASE don't stop here, there will be plenty for the Suns to become active with...Good Luck !

I'm sure the Sharpton & Glover won't have a problem
getting seats tonight after the nice little parade they
are having today

ANYONE, BUT ESPECIALLY A PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAM TO ENDORSE CRIMINAL ACTIVITY IS JUST NOT RIGHT !

defying the law is a tradition. like a girl that never says no, the boys are surprised when she does and think there is something wrong with her.

What made you people so great? Because you were born in this country? Why don't you take some time and actually read about globalization and transnational companies? Why don't you learn about exploitation that the US imposes on 3rd world countries that hinder their chances to advance socially, politically and economically? I think the United States truly incumbents the most ignorant people in the world when in reality all of you "legals" are given all of the resources in the world.
Is your anger also directed towards the Spanish conquistadors who conquered the Aztecs, etc. or maybe your rage should be focused on the above who beat up weaker Indian groups so they could cut out some beating human hearts?

this was already planned. and many other sports teams don spanish language jerseys on some days...

i particularly like MLB's "los cervezeros" AKA the Brewers.

not a big deal at all.

it just happens to coincide with the az immig stuff.

This is America and our language is ENGLISH.

Supporting criminal terrorist from Mexico is wrong.

The MAJORITY of people who live in Arizona and the rest of America SUPPORT the new bill, why on earth would the Suns be so stupid and support illegal criminals is beyond any understanding.

I SAY BOYCOTT THE SUNS for being anti American.

Too much of a minority to be wearing Los on their jerseys to show "solidarity" for Cinco de Mayo or "illegals".

Do illegals watch anything but Chivas?

It's totally stupid. Pandering.

Probably trying to boost viewership for their games.
