Re: Game Day: Suns (16-24) @ Knicks (11-30), Thurs 1/16/20

These last two wins have been encouraging, but I need to see a win like the one against the Clippers in the first week to believe that this team can turn a corner and really challenge for a .500 season and playoff spot. Otherwise I'll just assume they'll continue to do this Jekyll and Hyde stuff whe...

Re: Game Day: Suns (17-24) @ Celtics (27-13), Sat 1/18/20

Oubre seems like the kind of guy who takes a lot of pride in being a starter and moving him to a sixth man role, whether it improves his or the team efficiency or not, would be a difficult adjustment. Also consider that he hasn't been "paid" yet. He took a shorter, slightly higher annual salary deal...

Re: Game Day: Suns (17-24) @ Celtics (27-13), Sat 1/18/20

This would've been as ass whipping if Marcus Smart hadn't had a career night. Or we had 1 reliable bench player Jerome was -10 in 4 minutes. Carter was -22 in 17 minutes. Ouch. Jerome was just out there because Monty needed a warm body to put on the court. At least he ran around a lot. :lol: Despit...

Great win. This is the first week of the season form we've been hoping would come back.

Marcus Smart gets way more leeway from the officials than any non-star in the league.

Re: Game Day: Suns (17-24) @ Celtics (27-13), Sat 1/18/20

That foul on Rubio was the same thing Trae Young did to Ayton two games ago and they called it an offensive foul.

I think a blocking foul is the right call which just makes me angrier about the call in Atlanta.

Nice game, now play that way in practice tomorrow and the next day and the next day.
That's exactly what the Ayton "haters" have been saying.

Re: Around the League: Week 12 1/13-1/19

There goes INFs proposal to get Teague here. I forgot he was expiring at the same price as TJ. Yep. Would have loved to swap Rubio for him. You mean our Rubio who just had 25, 13, and 8, a near triple-double? Second in the league in assists at 9.4, that Rubio? :) I'll give you NY performance; that ...

Lol. My Portland friends proposed that to me when the Suns were rolling out the gate. I said no. I see you’re Oregonian. Blazers are desperate for a 3 and D and bench guy. I assume the front office in Portland knows that Kelly Oubre is not a 3 and D guy. I know what you mean... But Kelly is making ...

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-24) @ Knicks (11-30), Thurs 1/16/20

You have to wonder after a game like last night, would you trade Oubre for an athletic PF, a solid backup PG or a dangerous 3 point shooter? I only ask because we were very balanced last night with our Big 3, Booker, Ayton and Rubio. I feel like when Oubre is out there, for all the great things he ...

That pass was insane. It was easily 50 feet, possibly close to 55. On a dime. Even Steve Nash had to change his pants.

Re: Suns News: Week 12 1/13-1/19

Not only would it require a hefty package of players and picks, but the Suns would be in a tough spot cap wise with Aaron Gordon. I can only imagine the hand-wringing around here about him if he were traded to the Suns. One of his trademark 10/8 on 30% shooting weeks would probably be enough for peo...

Re: Suns News: Week 12 1/13-1/19

I disagree that Rose is bad money and a marginal talent. $7M this year and another $7M next year for a guy who can still win a game by himself is pretty good value in the NBA right now. I don't necessarily like how he does it, but as a 6th man, with freedom to do Derrick Rose things.. I think it co...

RE: Ayton

Of course everyone realizes he had a great game. That's awesome. He needs to do it again. And again. And again...

Then I'll feel comfortable with his impending max extension.
