Re: Game Day: Suns (33-9) @ Spurs (16-27), Mon 1/17/22

CP3’s shot really worries me. Shamet not so much. When he runs around the perimeter he has the gravity to draw a defender and that’s what we need more than anything else. of course it’d be great if he could hit more open shots, but his function right now is to plug in for Booker and he’s done that.

Re: 2022 Trade Deadline Talk

The guys coming in are nice but I’m not sending out a first for Batum. If it’s a second I would do that deal.

Re: Game Day: Suns (33-9) @ Spurs (16-27), Mon 1/17/22

He seems reluctant to launch when he has a sliver of space which leads to the dribbling. I honestly think this whole offensive issue will cascade down in a positive way once he hits the open shots. He might also be slightly better with the starters who create better spacing and gets him easier shots.

Re: Game Day: Suns (33-9) @ Spurs (16-27), Mon 1/17/22

The only guy I was kind of disappointed in was Shamet. He played tough defense and helped out on the boards but his shot has got to come around. He’s still getting to his spots so I’ll keep believing.

So much for that 2 threes streak. Time to start a new one! I love Cam J and hope he retires a Sun.

Shame he couldn’t hit his two three pointer attempts at the end.

Watched the game later, and really liked what Wainright did on defense. He was the only one that gave Lyles trouble.

Mikal hasn’t been right for a few games. Hope he can get out of this funk soon.

Re: EARLY START! Game Day: Suns (32-9) @ Pistons (10-31), Sun 1/16/22

He’s a smart player and doesn’t have those McGee moments… or those Craig moments to be honest. I’m looking forward to him being even more comfortable on the court. I am high on his defensive strength. Remember him grabbing the ball out of the hands of an offensive player during a drive to the basket...

Re: EARLY START! Game Day: Suns (32-9) @ Pistons (10-31), Sun 1/16/22

Yeah, Wainright has impressed me the last couple outings. I hope he keeps it up. I read he had major nerves at the beginning. Hopefully, he's settled down and can help us out. I've been impressed with his touch around the basket. I think it was visible the way he missed shots the first few games th...

Re: Around the League: Week 11 (12/27 - 1/2)

That’s why I never watch. And never pay attention to the votes. It used to be a much more competitive game, but now it's become a celebrity All-Star exhibition where nobody puts in much effort. I hear the Elam ending did interesting things to the game, but the entire event is still a spectacle desi...

My hope for this game: CP3 logs less than 25 min in a win, and not due to injury.

Just checked, we add 4.3 million in salary this year with that trade and from what I can tell we are 5 million under the tax line, so I think we’d still be under the tax if I’m reading it correctly.

Re: 2022 Trade Deadline Talk

I’m still somewhat intrigued by the Schroeder for Stix deal if it’s very clear that we won’t be keeping Stix and he can’t be a solution at the 4 as a deep backup once Cam J is back. In this scenario I’d move Payton and still keep Payne.

Re: 2022 Trade Deadline Talk

Gordon is a good player and I’m not saying I prefer shamet to him. I meant that 1. No way we take on that much additional salary and go into the tax with Sarver at the helm; and 2. Shamet trade value isn’t high and he can do more for us than he can fetch back in a trade. I see him as more than the s...
