Re: Phoenix Suns Training Camp 2022

The media doesn't hold teams accountable; this is gossipy drama stuff that distracts from basketball. I don't think the Suns coaching staff or players need to let the media turn every interview into a drama tea spilling session. They can and should focus on playing basketball. If they are having an...

Re: Suns Media Day 2022 - Monday, September 26th

I don't have a problem with a player being honest. It's easy to follow the mob mentality and just trash the guy just so you don't get accused of tolerating or supporting his bad behavior. But if you honestly didn't have that experience, I don't have a problem with someone saying so. Too many are in...

Re: Suns Media Day 2022 - Monday, September 26th

But all of that ignores the fact that Sarver already had a well-known reputation for being a jerk and former players (including James Jones' own teammate Raja Bell) had already told stories about him. That being the case, you would think Jones would not automatically assume that all of the people B...

Re: Suns Media Day 2022 - Monday, September 26th

We took last year's team, and are subtracting our starting 4 and our #1 big off the bench. We replaced that with end of bench guys in Okogie and Lee and Landale. Not sure how you see that as an upgrade. Maybe you are thinking that a post ACL Dario will make up the difference and a whole lot more? W...

He is their boss. True, but you don't say something that strong unless you believe it. He is talking to the media, and as a GM, he knows his job is to basically tell them what he wants them to hear, and what his bosses want them to know. It isn't to tell the truth. But I appreciate your positive at...

Can we make it work without Saric? Really like him as our back up to DA
Yes, it works salary wise if you switch Saric with Payne
And then you would have a frighteningly-thin backcourt behind Booker and Paul.

Re: Prospective Suns Owners

Is it possible for current minority owners to be a part of the next ownership group? Suns' minority owners? Very easily. If Sarver's share is the only share sold they could all stay. They could also organize their own group to buy out their partners and become managing partner or majority owner. Or...

Re: Prospective Suns Owners

I think Bob Iger would my choice out of the proposed new owners thus far. It would have to be a situation where he assembles a partnership that names him managing partner - he doesn't have the money himself to acquire majority interest. That said, we've seen that twice before with both Colangelo an...

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

The Hawks view themselves as Finals contenders, so they aren't going to give away Collins for a hodgepodge of role players and late first round picks. They may figure Crowder is a better choice for what they want - defense, veteran leadership - and then again, you may be right and they may not be t...

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

Crowder is a great fit because we need a guy who does the dirty work on the defensive end. It's just that with him and Bridges both not being able to create their own shot it puts a lot of pressure on Booker and Paul to do it for everybody.

Re: Around the League News - 2022 Offseason Edition

Trading for Bogdanovic would have helped the offense, but it would have been a huge step backwards defensively from Crowder.

He probably called out Boston for being a racist city. If you are a Celtic you can't do that. Well, Bill Russell certainly had a history of it. yeah I was just making the comparison.

Re: Prospective Suns Owners

I would guess that Knight is more interested in buying the Blazers when the Paul Allen Trust gets around to selling it.

Jahm didn't sound like he was interested in being more than a minority owner, but time will tell on that one.

Bob Iger Group, here we come. Could CP3 & LeBron be a part of this group? Not while they're playing. That's what I thought too, but like everything else in this league, they may make a change in the rules and/or exception for LeBron. No. He had to divest his share when he unretired. Same with M...

I really like the part where he basically blames cancel culture for not getting a second chance lol. What a turd.
Actions have consequences.

What a piece of shit.

How many chances did he have to change his behavior in 18 years? How many did he take?
