"That shows you what kind of condition he came in," Suns GM Ryan McDonough said.— Bruce Pascoe (@BrucePascoe) June 5, 2015
"That 3 min run is no joke," McConnell said. "I tried to run as fast as I could & last 10 I kinda blacked out. I don't remember any of it."— Bruce Pascoe (@BrucePascoe) June 5, 2015
