Re: All Things Ayton

Don’t think whatever they could do can make it worse for us in terms of yearly or total cost, but I wonder if someone can throw in an early player option that would make matching a very nervous exercise.

Re: Tesla

Yeah that is probably more depth than I'd get into on a keyboard. If we ever sit down over drinks one day we can talk about this more. I'm pretty sure we are on the same side of the issue though... just a general level of frustration with big corporations. The difference is I seem to have been beate...

Re: Suns Sign Bridges to Extension

Yeah I think Bam is a solid comparison, but some would say he's a more impactful player, with his playmaking ability on offense. Don't think Ayton is the same kind of player as Wiggins, but I'd say his rookie season wasn't that good, even if the numbers were decent. Wiggins had multiple 20 point sea...

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. if he enters FA next year, he will be a top 5 FA. So teams will have to throw more ...

Re: Suns Sign Bridges to Extension

Both seem to have an underwhelming motor, Wiggins on D and Ayton on O, so they do share that… I cringe a little when he constantly works on that Hakeem fade rather than footwork that will allow him to get closer to the basket.

Re: Suns Sign Bridges to Extension

You are right, but I also remember somebody mentioning that they were probably trying to get both deals done to announce them together, and that makes sense to me. Let's see if Ayton will budge a bit from his full max request (according to what I've read). I guess if we really aren't offering even t...

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

Think there's a setting before the draft where all the free agents get into the waiver process. Once you start that I suppose the system requires that to wear off before you can make new changes.

That means no deal for Ayton I assume? I guess I can live with that, long as we don't fracture that relationship.

Re: Tesla

I get what you guys are saying, but I think it just makes more financial sense to outsource, because the supplier can focus on the one specific product and not get bogged down by bureaucracies that run rampant in big companies. If GM were to build all its own components, then pretty much every part...

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

Thanks for the help FF. It's too late I guess. There's a draft results tab if you draft on a computer where it basically predicts the roto style ranking of each team... pretty good page to look at the relative strengths and weaknesses of your team against the rest of the league. But if I'm not mista...

Re: Around the League: Preseason

Lowe podcast threw out a Westbrook for Kyrie theoretical trade. I hate the Lakers. Having said that, it would be high drama to reunite Kyrie with LeBron and Westbrook with Harden and Durant. Of course it will never happen, but it's fun to talk about.

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

I’ll be happy to get the results here. Don’t check email so much these days anyway. So we are at 12 teams redraft now with a 14 deep roster right?

Be great if we could match people’s names here to their team names. Some are easy, others are a bit of a guessing game.

Thanks for everything you do Carey, and hope your situation gets better soon.

I have not made threads in the past and the timezone thing makes it slightly difficult for me, but I'm sure we'll all pitch in to keep the tradition going!
