Re: Game Day: Suns (1-1) @ Warriors (2-1), Mon 10/22/18

This Bender’s island thing, seems like a guilty pleasure. Many call themselves last islander standing, but we are quite a few actually. I’m all for picking up his options, since it looks unlikely that we are going to be a destination next year. But above all because I have faith on coach Kov to wake...

Are we really going to do this for the entire season? For their whole careers?! So Ayton and Doncic are 1-1.
Maybe a dedicated thread for those unable to let go and enjoy the present.

Remember when Ryan said it was unlikely we bring in 4 rookies and then brought in 5? Good times.

Re: Suns Preseason News 2018

If the FO is trying to get out of the hostage situation in the PG trade front, sounds good in principle. “I rather sign Crawford that sent you an unprotected first...”, I’m pretty sure that up to this point, teams are managing two prices for their PGs: the general asking price and the Suns price. So...

Re: Ryan McDonough Appreciation Thread

Nobody puts a gun on the guy’s head to stay here so long. All this time he got to collect a GM paycheck, pretty sure he had a great parking spot and awesome business cards reading “Phoenix Suns General Manager”. I have worked under people on Sarver’s mold, as many more people have. And you either fi...

Re: Suns Preseason News 2018

We took the hole four years, and a summer to give up on Alex FREAKING Len. I’ll gladly take all your titles in the island and wait out the season to see if Koskokov can save this kid’s soul. And I’m noticing lately that this is not so much of an island, moreso like a village. Or perhaps some people ...

Re: Suns Trade Knight and Chriss for Anderson and Melton

I think you are overvaluing both Knight and Chriss. They both stink and everyone knows it. We swapped bad contracts, and we got Melton for taking on some extra salary. It's a bonus for both teams that the bad players they brought on might be a good fir for the new team. THIS. I never saw that bille...

Why in the world would Minnesota settle for such a mediocre haul for a top-15 NBA player?
To stick it to the owner perhaps?

Re: Around the League: 2018 Offseason

Would definitely take either but I think I like Teodosic more as a passer and because he brings something a little different in terms of skills and size. get them both That would be par for the course for McD. Am I right? McDo would get them both, promise both of them the starting job, and then als...

Re: 2018 Suns Offseason News

Just in case any of you McDonough lovers aren't paying attention. If he does not acquire a starting PG prior to the start of the season, this will be the 2nd year in row that has happened. OH, sorry he had Bledsoe last year for the 1st 3 games prior to the hair salon. It's like flying a plane witho...

I'd happily take Dragic back, but I don't think he would ever want to play here again. Plus I'm not sure what asset Miami would want for him.
Cap relief for next summer, Goran is not what he was when they got him, and they are not going anywhere, better to play the FA market in a great crop year

Re: Suns Trade Knight and Chriss for Anderson and Melton

The dragic-Igor connection would be fun, but dragic isn't the same dragic as 13-14. He's over 30 and has started the downhill trend. I think making a move for him would be pretty shortsighted and unwise. If it's for Ryan Anderson? Sure. If it's for TJ+Troy? Pass. Dragic would make us competitive an...

If there is someone that can restore Brandon Knight's confidence and turn him into a NBA player again, that person is Mike D'Antoni.

FWIW https://twitter.com/KeithSmithNBA/status/1035481730214449152 I don’t get it Don’t trade your only starting pg until you have another. it kills our leverage when seeking a decent pg and we may be left with a gaping hole at pg. it’s the reverse order of how it should be done.

Re: Suns Trade Knight and Chriss for Anderson and Melton

If someone would have offer me the chance to pull off a trade, or wait for either Chriss or Knight to develop into something valuable, I just would have asked for two things: No dead or longer years salary coming our way, and No picks going out. So I can't complain on a sincere manner, wanting to wi...

Wonder how the two teams paths would have differed had we signed Manu in 04 alongside Nash, instead of Q.

Re: Devin Booker Signs Five-Year, $158 Million Deal

My very uninformed take: Warren shows up with a corner 3: It won’t be his forte, but it will be there, and just from the corner. Knight is BASE: Coaching matters, and I think without expectations, playing off Booker-Ayton and with Igor in charge, he can regain form. Ayton is ROY: Will be an uphill b...

Re: Devin Booker Signs Five-Year, $158 Million Deal

I think if I could rub a magic lamp and make Knight better at one thing, it'd be his decision-making, so that he'd know when to shoot and when to pass. If he had that, the rest would follow. Not to exonerate the guy, but I think this team (coaches and GM’s “dual PG gimmick”) messed up big time Bran...
