Re: Suns Off-Season Thread

I tried to ask this before, I'll try again...assuming we zero out on KD as it appears...and I think many feel the same, that without some juggling of the mix we're looking at the question of where we land this season. a. Ayton...ok, some bag on the idea of him as a PF. I'm going to ask the obvious q...

Re: The GOP / RNC

AZ should be pretty embarrassed at the kind of GOP candidates they have chosen. Basically they've picked the most loony kooks in each primary, a bunch of election deniers and insurrectionists. You can't run a healthy country if 1/2 of it keeps nominating garbage humans like this for important offic...

Re: Suns Off-Season Thread

Some interesting 3 point shooting games...decent on assists and pts, albeit with spotty minutes. His turnovers concern me a little. Worth a look, I guess. We still need upgrades at backup PG and a strong inside player, be it C or PF. We really haven't done great things this summer roster wise...

Re: Solar

Lithium is the 33rd most common metal and makes up about .002% of the Earth's crust.
Vanadium is the 22nd most common metal and makes up .019% of the Earth's crust.
IE, it's found almost 10x as common as Li, and as stated, it's actually renewable/reusable.

They're a startup...they're first real commercial product is in validation, I believe... it's coming. The challenge is going to be mining.

Re: The Democrats

I see both sides of the argument. If you know your preferred candidate is polling much better against one candidate from the other party than another, why wouldn't you want your preferred one to run against them?
