The Phoenix Suns are having a stellar season and are the top team in the Western Conference standings. Despite not having two vital starters due to injury, the Suns are still on top with a record of 14-6.
With their win against the Sacramento Kings, players from the Suns went viral once more for their post-game workout. Duane Rankin, writer for azcentral.com, posted two videos of Suns players doing extra work after getting the win against the Kings. Deandre Ayton and Damion Lee were the stars of the workout videos posted on Twitter.
NBA fans couldn't help but compare this to the video the team posted last season. At the end of March 2022, the Suns defeated the Golden State Warriors with a score of 107-103. After the game, a video of the players working out was posted on Twitter. The video started with Devin Booker saying the phrase, "Winners work!"
According to coach Monty Williams, Suns players often work out after a game, whether it's a home or an away game.
However, fans thought the stunt was a bit corny, and immediately turned it into a meme. Now, with every win the Suns get, fans on Twitter post the memed workout video. Here are a few that have been posted during their recent wins.
Even other teams aren't immune to getting memed. Boston Celtics' Jayson Tatum and the Minnesota Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards have been included in the meme of the "Winners work" video.
With the Phoenix Suns' recent win, fans have a new version of the "Winners win" meme that could probably be used for quite some time. Fans and haters of the Suns will use the new meme until a new video can replace it.
How far can Devin Booker take the Phoenix Suns this season?
The Phoenix Suns are on top of the Western Conference once again and Devin Booker's play has been a major part of their success. With injuries to Chris Paul and Cameron Johnson, the team has done an incredible job staying on top. But how far can Booker take the Suns this season?
When he was drafted by the Suns, the team struggled and had just moved on from the Steve Nash era. In Booker's first five seasons, Phoenix was consistently terrible and they relied on their star shooting guard to carry them to relevancy. That didn't come to fruition as the three-time All-Star didn't have the right pieces around him.
This time around, it looks like the one-time All-NBA selection is a more complete player. Even without CP3 alongside him, the team is playing excellent and smart basketball. Booker is smarter now and is a problem for opposing defenses because of how tricky he is on the court.
The shooting guard is averaging 27.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists this season. Booker is seventh in the MVP race this year.
