Re: Around the League: Week 20 3/9-3/15

He also failed, IMO, in creating a culture and atmosphere from within the club that started at the top with him. He just put players together on a roster, hired a coach and that was it. Maybe he's a good administrator in getting the work done, but there has to be a defined culture. I think Jones un...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I don't see a lot of value in returning Saric or Baynes. Baynes has perceived value for what he did as a starter. He performed significantly worse as a reserve, and that is his role on this team going forward. Saric was mediocre. And this is coming from someone who applauded his addition. It just d...

Re: NBA Season Suspended due to COVID-19

Right now there is little evidence that surviving COVID-19 protects you from re-acquiring it. Which means antibody tests will be meaningless, and makes engineering a vaccine to be incredibly difficult (if not impossible). I have no idea what the new normal looks like, but it won't look like the old...

This should be a golden opportunity for him to come off the bench and score against other teams bench units.

Rubio looked so predictable and slow on offense. What I wouldn’t give to have VanVleet.

Y’all are watching box scores not games! I watch a lot of games. You’re just seeing what you want to see. He’s not a perfect player, you’re not wrong about some of his flaws(tunnel vision, gambles defensively) I think you just aren’t factoring in all of his positive contributions. It’s the 80/20 ru...

Re: Suns News: Week 16 2/10-2/16

This team needs way more talent before we begin picking apart Oubre. In the least we are short a starting PF, leading bucket getting 6th man, and a back up PG.

Re: Suns News: Week 16 2/10-2/16

I would be stoked if we spent the cap space on getting Toronto’s Ibaka and Vanvleet. We’d have a veteran presence who can space the floor and isn’t soft. Vanvleet would be 6th man of the year spelling either Booker or Rubio-probably replacing Rubio in the long run.

This season is about improvement all around. We are not making the playoffs. We don't need to introduce new bodies for the sake of it. I want to introduce new bodies to see if we can find something worth bringing back next year. Try some guys out. This team still has ALOT of needs to be filled that...

Re: Suns News: Week 15 2/3-2/9

I don’t think we saw much of it last season. He played only two games of good defense in those wins against LeBron and Giannis. This year there’s actually now proof that he is a valuable defender AND putting up meaningful big man stats.

Re: Suns News: Week 15 2/3-2/9

We absolutely should feel better about Ayton than we ever did about Bledsoe. But the whole "the only other players to average _______" accolades do nothing for me, and ultimately they don't really capture true impact and value. For instance, how many players in NBA history averaged at least 29 poin...

Re: Around the League: Week 15 2/3-2/9

I would really like it if they picked up Isiah Thomas. As much I like Okobo, I’d rather be a little more competitive than we are. Okobo and JC just aren’t cutting it. JC is effective in spot duty as a defender say for 10 mpg. But this squad needs another ball handler who creates his own shots for 15...

Re: Game Day: Rockets (33-18) @ Suns (20-31), Fri 2/7/20

Like they said on TNT last night. Play man to man. Let Harden and Westbrook go off for 40 each but don’t leave the corners. Suns offense have a chance. It may take Ayton out of the middle on D. But let’s face it, Russ and Harden are better going to the cup and line than Ayton can change their shots....

Re: NBA Trade Deadline Thread (Thursday Feb 6th 3pm EST)

Re-sign Saric?! He’s been a total disappointment: streaky af, disappears on offense. He’s had two bad years in a row. Methinks, we’re done. He is an NBA player but not playing into a role as a consistent player. I’d rather pay Gallinari who is at least clutch and would spread the floor the rest of t...

Looks like Isiah Thomas will become available. Go get him JJ, we need points off the bench.
