Re: Suns News: Offseason

Having the salaries of Rubio and FVV seems like it would slow the rebuild. The rebuild is over dude. It's time to start winning games and filling the gaps with quality players. Hopefully, it is. That’s why I wouldn’t rush to trade that 10th, even on this shallow year. Many considered picking Cam a ...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

He is too old to be the Go-To guy on a playoff team. OKC overachieved mostly because CP will them into the playoffs, and we pile on the guy because his team finally came back to earth?

Don’t think this is a realistic scenario, just more curious about how people view these players. If the clippers called us up and said we’ll give you Paul George for Ayton and Oubre. What would you say?
Upgrading from Oubre to George, is definitely not worth giving up Ayton.

Re: Suns News: Offseason

Been a long decade, Cap. My birthday is coming up near the end of next month. I will be halfway to 90. I was in my early 30s the last time the Suns made the playoffs. That just sounds fucking awful. Ugh. I did my count since the ‘93 finals that made me that weird guy in Mexico rooting for the Suns ...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

Wiggins on a max contract is a big negative and the #2 is from what is considered one of the weakest drafts in recent memory (when it comes to the top). If I am MIL, this package doesn't offer me any consolation. I like to believe that James Jones wouldn’t consider trading Oubre and Ayton (picks as...

Re: Steve Nash to coach Nets

Nash didn't relied on God's given talents to succeed at the NBA level. He made a plan and followed over and over to climb the ladder. I'm pretty sure this time around he also has a solid plan to follow, as well as the initial support of the key figures on the organization (KD, Marks, among others). ...

Re: NBA Playoffs 2020

There's probably some truth to that. I think another big factor is that the players basically can't go out and party all night when they're stuck in the bubble. I suspect a lot of the players live lifestyles where they are often out late drinking and goofing around in the club until late hours, the...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

Denver isn't trading MPJ. He is absolutely essential to their chances for going from a good team to a true championship contender. Yeah, you’re totally right, specially after his coming out party at the bubble. It’s just that Denver have him playing as SF to give him minutes while we have our SF ta...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

I’d probably take Lamelo at 1 if we land there. Though I’d entertain trading down or out 1st. I do like Hayes as well, a little worried about him off the ball at the moment, but he’d have time and he does seem like a hard worker. Michael Porter Jr comes to my mind if we land Top 4. Would it be enou...

I'd take FVV over Rubio any day, even if FVV is making $20 million/yr. My cutoff would likely be $22 mil/yr.
$20mill!!!

I suppose because that way you can proceed to keep posting about our overpaid PG and how we could upgrade the team by trading him for cap space... :lol:

Re: Suns News: Offseason

Why moving TJ Warren for cap space was an awful move, but moving Rubio it’s a great idea? That is an erroneous narrative. Trading Warren for cap space wasn't an issue. Not getting back a pick was an awful move. GIVING UP A PICK was an awful move. Similarly, I would never give up an asset to move Ru...

Re: Game Day Special: Blazers (34-39) vs Nets (35-36), Thurs 8/13/20

And then KD will decide to force a trade to Phoenix, where he will mesh beautifully as our PF with Booker and Ayton, leading together our record setting march to the title!!! Thats an Aztec prophecy? I don't know about Aztec but I think it's on the Mayan calendar. Unfortunately, it happens on the s...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

I can live with that!!

As I have saying before, we need to balance the the current lack of aggression on the Frontcourt, Ayton can take the high post and leave this guy the rim on offense, the opposite on defense.
