Los Suns have caused quite a storm.

The Phoenix Suns wore jerseys that said ‘Los Suns’ on Cinco de Mayo during Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal series against the San Antonio Spurs to protest Arizona’s immigration law.

Suns star Steve Nash said the Arizona law ‘really damages our civil liberties. I think it opens up the potential for racial profiling and racism. ... It represents our state poorly in the eyes of the nation and the world.’


The Suns’ political proclamation has created a big stir, including inspiring one fan to shred her game tickets.
