Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Handles looking GREAT! Really liking the crossover. Tight, low. Very nice! Go Booker.

And on that last part, I love the energy and swagger he brings to our team. But his offense is mediocre and his defense is sub-par. I am hoping both of those improve this year, but that is what his career has said so far.
Would you prefer Oubre or Bridges start?

Re: Suns sign Rubio

My main concern about the current likely starting lineup (Rubio, Booker, Oubre, Saric, Ayton) is defense. We arguably have 4 out of those 5 guys who are bad defenders; only Rubio is above-average on D for his position. I love that starting lineup offensively, but will we give back just as many poin...

Re: Diamondbacks start well in April

Josh Rojas made his debut yesterday. 2-4 with an RBI and a few nice plays in left field. To think, he's the lowest ranked prospect of the 4 players we got in the deal. The dude is a stud and a local boy who grew up in Litchfield Park and played locally at Goodyear Millennium High and Paradise Valley...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Some Ayton highlights from JCraw's summer league up in Seattle. Basically a glorified YMCA game but he looks a little leaner to me and is showing off some nice post moves. Also hit a 3, tho his form was a little flat. I know a few people want to see him develop a face up/dribble drive game but I wa...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

we didn't sign rubio to play off the ball as a mid-range shooter. And he isn't even a decent shooter from mid-range. The BEST area he had from mid-range was at the left elbow: He took 49 total shots all season and made 43%. Every other mid-range area was below 40%. Ding. Had I read your post, I wou...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

so advice for Rubio. he shouldn't over dominate the ball since he's not a good finisher around the basket and not a good shotmaker off the dribble. but he can be a good catch and shoot guy in the midrange, think Dennis Johnson during his Celtics years, bird gets doubled in a close game, Kicks the b...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

I would’ve rather had Brogdon or DLo. Or take them out and just go with someone who’s cap mark is inconsequential like Tyus Jones, Sato, etc. Instead we did neither. We ate up significant space without making a significant signing It doesn't really matter though if Brogdon or DLo had no intention a...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

Assuming Ayton will show something he hasn't, while assuming KP won't have something he has shown us, seems like a bad way to win an argument. Ayton is entering his second season. Most good young players show new improvements to their game as they grow. Kristaps Porzingis tore his ACL. Most players...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Beal:
36 MPG | 25.6 PTS | 47% FG | 35 3P% | 5.0 REB | 5.5 AST | 1.5 STL | 0.7 BLK

Oubre:
28 MPG | 15.2 PTS | 45% FG | 32 3P% | 4.7 REB | 1.2 AST | 1.2 STL | 0.9 BLK

I'll take the guy averaging more BLK per game, thank you very much!

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Looks like the Wizards are offering Beal 3-years, $111 million. Making Rubio and Oubre really look even more overpaid. How does that make them look more overpaid? That’s a max extension offer for Beal. Though I believe Beal can get more if waits until FA and signs a max. I think they know this offe...

Re: Suns sign Cheick Diallo

I like it a lot. I preferred Christian Wood, but this was the next best thing to address our weaknesses. I had a similar reaction. I think Wood is a better player, but Diallo addresses so many of things Jones has ignored this offseason. It feels good to feel good about a move, even a minor one. +1.

Re: Suns sign Cheick Diallo

Info incoming to give it a D grade. While he likes Diallo, the fact that the Suns made the transaction automatically moves it down 3 letter grades.
