Re: Acts of domestic terrorism

In the end, I am convinced that the military will be the ultimate arbiter of succession.

Re: NBA Draft 2020

Maybe, I don’t trust workout videos though. There was a big feature on Mo Bamba right before the draft and had videos of him hitting shots that had me thinking for a second we could trade down and snag him. He’s done nothing in the nba. Nothing? I don't think that is accurate. He was a raw freshman...

Re: Acts of domestic terrorism

It’s going to be a miracle any of us survive what seems to be coming. I actually woke up at 4 am and started searching for the best country to move to. My right wing brother belongs to a prepper group that has meetings and the last one had 800 people at it he said. He has stocked up supplies for th...

Re: NBA Playoffs 2020

As much as I loved seeing a double OT game to push the series to 7 games... these refs have been awful. Every single game they are a huge part of the story. They should be nearly invisible. It really sucks. (I know the concussion protocols and the rule changes to encourage free movement and open sh...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

There's no point in having Rubio and FVV on the roster at the same time. Creates an unnecessary logjam. Move Rubio and go all in with FVV or leave it alone and spend money on the rest of the roster. Except it doesn’t. A 3 guard rotation of Booker/FVV/Rubio is no logjam. Do we not realize how bad ou...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

We have a really nice core and shouldn't mess with it. Add to it, yes. Make the team better, yes. But there's no need to take a huge step backward (dumping Rubio) in the hope of taking a step forward (signing some mysterious better player or PG). I still haven't seen a plausible plan involving Rubi...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

We've just gone 8-0 I appreciate that, and that tells me this team has promise. I don't think it means we are contenders, and ultimately that is the goal. So I remain open to making changes until we achieve that goal. Rubio is a primary reason for that I think there are a lot of reasons. Rubio cert...

Re: Your 2019-2020 Phoenix Suns

I think we've got a good team going forward (let's assume that we stay with the current team). Starting lineup: PG: Rubio -- solid playmaker and veteran presence SG: Booker -- top 15 player, legit all-star, borderline superstar SF: Bridges -- the epitome of the smart 3-and-D wing. Can he be more? PF...

Yaaa.

Well...at least we got what I was hoping for -- a late-season run reminiscent of the Mavs before they were in the playoffs for 20 years. It bodes well for the future.

Re: Game Day:Suns (32-39) vs 76ers (42-28), Tues 8/11/20

We have to give Ayton more time. I listened to the Woj pod. Ayton didn't start getting serious about basketball until this year under Monty's tutelage. I shit you not. He had a handful of serious games where it appeared the lights were on. They are definitely back off. I don’t want any part of a gu...

You guys covered most of what I saw in the game, but I did want to point out that Carter went 1-1 and that one make looked pure. With Payne and Johnson and Ayton all playing poorly, I would have liked to see Carter get a couple more shots. But that's an extremely minor complaint compared to what yo...

Re: Around the League: Season Resumes

The injuries are a MASSIVE red flag. Does nobody here look at his build and frame? Does that look like the kind of guy that's going to hold up for years in the league? And beyond scoring on a bunch of explosive plays, his rebounding numbers and defense are pretty atrocious. We're actually arguing a...

Re: Game Day: Mavericks (40-28) @ Suns (27-39), Sun 8/2/20

I really don't get the movement to dump Rubio, especially since Ayton can't really create his own offense yet -- he needs a pick n roll initiator.
