The Phoenix Suns are stacked. They made an earthshaking trade to acquire Kevin Durant early Thursday morning.

Durant is a Top 10 NBA player in the league. Many pundits have him within their Top 5, depending on who you ask.

With this trade, Durant joins a stacked starting lineup. Chris Paul is the team’s starting point guard.

Also, the team has young stars Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton in their lineup.

Chemistry will be the key to this roster. Can they succeed? Time will tell.

Right now, the Suns are struggling in the Western Conference. The team is currently fifth in the standings with a 30-26 record.

They are 8.5 games behind the Western Conference-leading Denver Nuggets. They have a 38-17 record.

Durant could potentially make his debut with the team on Thursday night against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta, Georgia. If he does not play tonight against the Hawks, he could potentially make his debut with the Suns on the road against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The team will have about 20 games to gel before they begin their playoff run.

In the history of the league, we have seen Super Teams that have worked out. And other Super Teams that have fallen short of their high expectations.

Durant was part of the last Super Team that failed. The Nets had three stars that also included Kyrie Irving and James Harden.

Within 18 months, those three players were traded in separate deals.

This deal reminds Durant of when he signed with the Golden State Warriors. At the time, the Warriors had Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.

Durant helped the Warriors to a Championship. Can he help the Suns to the Championship? We will have to wait and see.
