I think it was just understood that if they weren't Phoenix, they would be AZ because major teams are either associated with the nearest major city or the state.

Here are all the teams in the major 4 with state names or city names differing from their location.

Florida Panthers - Sunrise, FL
New Jersey Devils - Newark, NJ
Carolina Hurricanes - Raleigh, NC
Colorado Avalanche - Denver, CO
Minnesota Wild - St Paul, MN
Tampa Bay Rays - St Petersburg, FL
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim - Anaheim, CA
Texas Rangers - Arlington, TX
Minnesota Twins - Minneapolis, MN
Arizona Diamondbacks - Phoenix, AZ
Colorado Rockies - Denver, CO
Detroit Pistons - Auburn Hills, MI
Indiana Pacers - Indianapolis, IN
Minnesota Timberwolves - Minneapolis, MN
Utah Jazz - Salt Lake City, UT
Golden State Warriors - Oakland, CA
Buffalo Bills - Orchard Park, NY
New England Patriots - Foxborough, MA
New York Jets - East Rutherford, NJ
Tennessee Titans - Nashville, TN
Dallas Cowboys - Arlington, TX
New York Giants - East Rutherford, NJ
Washington Redskins - Landover, MD
Minnesota Vikings - Minneapolis, MN
Carolina Panthers - Charlotte, NC
Arizona Cardinals - Glendale, AZ

In all honesty, I thought when the team moved to Glendale, they were going to change the name. Then with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim name debacle in '05, I expected Glendale to want the same thing, but nothing happened then either.
