Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I'm thrilled that the team is doing well, but as a long time Suns fan I'm still conditioned to expect the worst and keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I hope we keep this going. I don't think we'll be .667 the rest of the way but if we end up being over 500 on the season I'd be ecstatic. The s...

Re: Game Day: 76ers (5-0) @ Suns (4-2), Mon 11/4/19

If we lose by more than 5 points, I'd be disappointed. Start of season I would've set that number at 15. So there's been wonderful progress and I hope we keep it up. But I don't see us dealing with the size and physicality that the 76ers bring to the table. I do hope I'm wrong and we deal them their...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

what trade are you guys talking about? the conley for gallo one? what's the protocol for asking the commissioner to revert trades? can't be out of regret, right?

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

Also, I talk too much... don't take me too seriously. Most of the time I think I'm being neutral and stating facts when in reality I'm projecting an air of being critical. I've been working on this for a long time, and it is getting slightly better in the sense that at least I can tell I'm rubbing p...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

Yeah, it's fine, we have different philosophies. Don't take this as a challenge to the existing rule, my post wasn't intended to debate what's right vs. wrong as I honestly believe there is no right here. I just like it when there's more chances for chaos. Otherwise I have to live through the entire...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

Also, personally I'm not a fan of IR spots. Especially in re-draft leagues. It takes away from some of the variety in this game. Ordinarily people need to carry a guy with injury on their active roster and suffer the consequences, and it gives other guys chances to pick up players who they otherwise...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

I've used this in the past, here is what I know: 1. You can only move guys with "INJ" tag to IR spot, not any of the other tags. 2. You are supposed to be able to pick up a guy from the waiver with IR tag directly into an empty IR spot, but that may or may not be true. 3. Once the guy is in IR, he c...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

You guys know how Yahoo makes a prediction of which teams rank where after the end of the draft? I took a look. The team that was autodrafted, Maldo, ranked first. FWIW.

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

Sorry to keep asking questions... if we pick up someone from the waiver wire, can we keep them? If so, which round draft choice would we lose in the following year?

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

I would've voted for no first round keepers too, but I think the options were not multiple choice so I picked another rule that I felt was more important, but I'd support not allowing first rounders to be kept in upcoming years... but I won't complain either way, especially with the new draft rules....

Just to be clear though, you can't keep a first round guy, right?

Re: Oubre or Mikal Bridges as starting small forward?

There are examples of guys not playing ball until later and improving tremendously. But none of that has to do with desire and so I'm also in the worry camp. Hope he does well.

Re: Oubre or Mikal Bridges as starting small forward?

Why is that considered a max extension? I don't get it... I guess the cap rules have gotten way too complicated way too quickly. I can't help but think he can get a bigger offer on the open market...
