Re: Around the League: Week 15 (1/24 to 1/30)

Once they name the Suns All-Stars my interest in the game is pretty much done.

The voting process is convoluted and broken, the game is excruciating to watch and I just don't feel any need to watch the game anymore.

Re: Suns (37-9) @ Jazz (30-18) , Wed 01/26/2022

I think what Booker brings to the team is a little more replaceable than what Paul brings to the team. Star players with leadership qualities like Paul has are pretty rare. I don't know if there's another star player in the league who does that as well.

Booker is just not an efficient enough player to be considered for MVP. Chris Paul is still the engine that drives the team. Some people may not like to hear that, but he's a better player than Booker is.

Off the top of my head - GREATEST SUNS PLAYERS 1. Charles Barkley 2. Steve Nash 3. Kevin Johnson 4. Paul Westphal 5. Walter Davis 6. Amar'e Stoudemire 7. Devin Booker 8. Jason Kidd 9, Chris Paul 10. Connie Hawkins 11. Shawn Marion 12. Charlie Scott 13. Larry Nance 14. Tom Chambers 15. Alvan Adams 16...

Aron Baynes update -

holy shit. i completely missed this.
It was the first I'd read of it too - I think the whole thing went under the radar for various reasons.

Re: Suns News: Week 15 (1/24 to 1/30)

I think figuring the real total Win Shares lost due to injury needs to take into account the league average (theoretically .100 WS/48 min) when calculating how much a team loses when a player is out. You don't really lose all of Ayton's .219 WS/48 when he's out - if you're assuming there's a league ...

That second quarter might be the worst quarter of the year. Outscored 30-11.

Re: Suns News: Week 15 (1/24 to 1/30)

Probably had something to do with wins list vs expected wins lost. If the expected is say, 7, then it makes more sense.

Re: Suns News: Week 15 (1/24 to 1/30)

Maybe. It’s a bit hazy for me. Most of the last decade is a bit hazy for me. I’m not shitting on JJ per se, more so that this discussion is bringing back a lot of suppressed trauma. Sure sounds like you're pinning some shit that happened before he got here on him. To me he made one glaring mistake ...

Ty Jerome was drafted by Philadelphia and acquired in the trade for Aron Baynes.

Re: Suns News: Week 15 (1/24 to 1/30)

Keep in mind that Warren has played in only 71 of 193 games with the Pacers and only 4 in the last two years.

And that they also got a decent year out of Aron Baynes.

And that Nader and Payton don't really cost them that much since they were signed as end of the bench players.

Who wants to do a top-5 James Jones bad moves list? It's a very thin list - Selected Jalen Smith (when Tyrese Haliburton was available) Traded T.J. Warren to Indiana for cash considerations Traded a 2020 first-round draft choice (#30 - Desmond Bane) to Boston for Aron Baynes and Ty Jerome. Re-signe...

Re: Suns News: Week 15 (1/24 to 1/30)

I was listening to a BSotS podcast yesterday and they mentioned our TV viewership numbers are lower then our very bad years of terrible play on the court since the move to Bally Sports. What a shame. Some of the all time best Suns basketball and so many fans are missing out. During the pandemic of ...

He's very active, and seems to get great position in and around the paint.
Now, about those free throws ...
He's basically a more athletic version of Mark West

Re: Game Day: Jazz (30-17) @ Suns (36-9), Mon 1/24/22

Booker with 35 field goal attempts. That was ... excessive. Should have passed much more. Bridges had no FG attempts in the second half, I believe. As mentioned before, Suns ball movement got better when Booker sat for awhile. 2/5 FG in the 1st period, 0/3 in the 2nd period; 2/8 in the first half, ...
