I wish we could have got Doncic as well. Damn.

Someone was worried that Ayton had a strong upper body and skips leg day. His legs look pretty thick and strong in that video. If only he had shorter shorts and we could see how thick his thighs are. I bet they aren't skinny.

Re: With the FIRST pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Phoenix Suns select...

Just throwing this out there—it feels like my Bill Simmons question of the da: considering the skill set/personality, What are the odds we think of Ayton as Dwight Howard 2.0 five years from now? 30%? 40%? 10%. That's a stupid comparison. Howard is widely disliked by his teammates and coaches. He d...

Amare in high school: In his senior year he averaged 29.1 points, 15 rebounds, 6.1 blocked shots, and 2.1 steals per game. Deandre: 21.1 points, 16.0 rebounds, 3.8 blocked shots, 1.6 steals. Amare definitely had a better high school career, with only 2 years of organized basketball under his belt. ...

Re: With the FIRST pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Phoenix Suns select...

I think he'll be a better rebounder and defender than Amare was. His offensive game is already as good or better than Amare's was coming into the league. Actions vs words. His actions have spoken louder than the red flag words that have come out of his mouth. Let's see how coaching from Igor and bei...

Re: With the FIRST pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Phoenix Suns select...

Most Suns fans let Amare slide with some of his eyeroll enducing comments because he was an All-NBA level player. Even then, a lot of us still became frustrated with his deficiencies in rebounding and defense. With Ayton, we don't really know how well he's going to develop in the NBA, yet he's alre...

I dunno man. If you want to make it sound better you should probably have him say something like "win a championship oh and also get a second contract."
Let me go find some pepper while we're at it and put it on a microscope slide so I can separate the gnat poop.

https://twitter.com/AdamHimmelsbach/status/1009473123631149061 Wonder if that is legit. Lost in all of it is hearing the quote and the exact phrasing of the question. The environment in which it was asked. What he followed his response with. You can't get any of that in a quote you read in a Tweet....

To earn the gold jersey, a player must accrue more practice points than anyone else in a multitude of what are hustle statistics monitored by team pe...

By October, when Arizona ran its players...

Re: With the FIRST pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Phoenix Suns select...

Is Bamba really as frail and skinny as people are saying? I keep hearing that being mentioned on sports radio. If so, that would concern me that he'll get moved around pretty easy in the paint for the first few years until he puts on size. Yes, he really is that skinny. This is one big advantage Ay...

Re: With the FIRST pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Phoenix Suns select...

The "basketball is a job" quote was harmless. I don't have a problem with a fun-loving guy either. But I do get the concerns about the Ayton brand. And the signing his Suns journey before even being drafted is a little much for me. At first I got the impression that he was driven to be great on the...
