Re: Suns Sign Bridges to Extension

I need a DA max agreement to be able to fully appreciate this. It’s a good deal. If Mikal doesn’t improve offensively he’s a bit overpaid. If he improves it’s great for the Suns Which is the same situation with Ayton. If he signs the standard max extension but doesn't improve offensively, he'll be ...

Re: All Things Ayton

Not optimistic at all. All the opposite, but as Split said, Bridges was the one that could get out of budget next offseason. Ayton is already asking for the max, and signing an extension tomorrow is more money that getting a max offer next offseason. Obviously, the relationship might take a hit, but...

Re: All Things Ayton

Completely agreed, I don’t care if the media or his agent is pushing for a Max contract out of a great playoffs run, you do your NBA math, and set your number. If you are a GM and don’t have the nerve to resist that pressure and cave into giving a big contract every time, specially with your RFA, y...

Re: Around the League: Preseason

Maybe is a maturity, discipline thing. You bring him over and then you get to know him, and Teams are not to going to bite into endulging a second stringer.

Re: All Things Ayton

Actually, they have almost a entire year to get Mikal’s and Ayton’s contracts signed. And once is done, drama surrounding negotiations can disappear almost immediately… to many of us is life or death (in a sports way matter), but for them, it’s just another tool, using the media as ramming carts and...

Re: Around the League: Preseason

Marquese Chriss could be an interesting 3rd stringer big if all the people could get selective amnesia and start over from scratch. Rounds up our rotation with a 4/5 combo player.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Easily, as in every 15 years?

Again, it requires maturity on both sides, not just the FO. And is unsustainable to hand out contracts on fear to displease a player.

Re: All Things Ayton

It’s not his job to bend over the players wimps, it’s not his job to just sign next to the players’ name on the contracts they think to deserve, or worst, feel entitled to. You are assuming that Jones’ hands are tied, but you can argue as well that he wants more than a playoff run from Ayton before ...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I heard it several times, and he didn’t literally said that, he was mumbling, and you can easily as well put all of those people in the same sentence as the ones that keep him from stay fixated on the contract issue. I know it can be true, that you can approach your boss or your subordinates in the ...

Re: All Things Ayton

I just don't see any way that Bridges gets a max contract. He's like a 4th or 5th piece for a contending team. I love the guy, but he isn't a max player. And I really don't think other teams think he is one, either. The Suns are not going to field FOUR over $30mill/year players. It is what it is. I...

Re: All Things Ayton

No, I don’t have specific things to back up my claim, but early in the season Dario Saric was leading the nba in net rating. We were better when Ayton went off the floor…and even for thr season, while we were quite good with Ayton on the floor, we were actually better overall with him on the bench....

Re: All Things Ayton

Re: Around the League: Preseason

Well, it must have to be a fraction of the ball deserved for Kyrie, so, give that fraction to Simmons and call it a day. More precisely, they can stagger his minutes with the bench, almost as Harden’s backup from the second quarter to mid 4th, then some “Close the game if you are willing to shoot ki...

Re: Game Day: Suns (1-1) @ Lakers (0-3), Sun 10/10/21

Lakers really don’t look great right now. I know it’s preseason and Lebron isn’t playing, but still. I haven’t seen Monk out there, is he hurt? No Ariza either, not that I expect much from him. I know a lot of people have Lakers at the top of the west, but I’ll be surprised if they are in the regul...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Being the third best center in the league is not as useful or imposing as it was in the 90’s, early 2000’s

Neither is the scale and competition field on the center position as high as “third best” might sound.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Teams spent a lot of the season gelling into roles and playing style. Of course, we are talking the best of the best on Lebron and AD, even Westbrook, but still, there is a reason the USA team struggles so much on national play against inferior but highly cohesive talent. Going from one extreme to t...

Wtf. Ayton is a max player based on the market. The fuck are they doing heading into another title run this year? Book isn’t gonna stay for this if we have a year full of resentment and entitlement. This is Sarver flexing at his players. I can’t imagine James Jones being so foolish. What if Booker ...
