Re: Game Day: Lakers (30-32) @ Suns (12-51), Sat 3/2/19

This is the ruthless West, Mr. James. Where one injury or bad month drops you from #4 to #11. Trying to trade half your team mates is probably not a good idea either. Lebron most likely came into the season knowing the Finals were out of reach, but not the playoffs. His return to Cleveland was the ...

They wouldn't get Zion. The odds are ridiculously small. I'd much rather be able to say, "Lebron went to the Lakers and they couldn't even make the playoffs." That is so satisfying.
It also would be the first time that Lebron watch the Playoffs from home, right?

Re: ESPN - Inside the Suns' messy and dysfunctional front office

Can we buy a full box of this guy’s book, and put them on every desk Sarver sits during the day and travels? If just for him to read those last two lines, it will be worth it.

Re: Suns News: Week 18 2/11-2/17

Kevin Durant is going to have one those crazy “I’m better than Lebron” moments and sign with Phoenix to double on the “I’m going to make the Lakers relevant again by myself” move by James last summer. He already did Lebron’s “Start from scratch in Cleveland” with OKC, and “Leaving my Franchise to cr...

sorry, wasn't trying to pour salt on any open wounds. Saw all the KP talk in here and didn't get to the other thread before posting this.

Re: Around the League: Week 14 1/14-1/20

Just to clarify, Chandler would have been the only expiring we could have used in any trade where we send out more than 1 player. Waiving Rivers hurt our ability to trade for a player in the $10-$15M range, but he could not have been included in any Jrue/Conley/AD trade. Ariza. Not really applicabl...

Re: Around the League: Week 10 12/17-12/23

Interesting fact I just saw looking at the standings. Dallas is 2nd only to Milwaukee at home with a 13-3 record. Milwaukee is 14-3. Yet they are dead last on the road at 2-12. I’ve never really understood how a team could play so drastically different because they play in a different gym. Wasn't A...

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.

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.

Nobody puts a gun on the guy’s head to stay here so long.

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.

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?

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...
