Re: Around the League: Week 7 12/2-12/8

I'd really like for us to have Kevin Love. I don't mind the contract; I think he'd be worth it for the most part. He's exactly what I want in a PF, generally speaking: he hits 3s, rebounds really well, sees the floor and passes well, etc. Not an awesome defender, and he's a bit injury-prone, though...

Re: Around the League: Week 7 12/2-12/8

This board is crazy when it comes to trades. You guys want maximum return while protecting Josh Jackson as an asset like he’s Clyde Drexler. haha so true Although I don't think we'd need to make the pick unprotected to be the best offer CLE gets for Love. Like others have said, there are concerns t...

Why? Can he shoot, rebound, set good screens or make outlet passes?
Yes, yes, not sure, not sure.

He’s at 37% from 3 on over 3 attempts a game. He’s over 10 rebounds per 36. He’s a better defensive player than Love..cheaper and younger. I would definitely take him over Love.

It’s not even necessarily about free agency. We limit our ability to make other trades.

Re: Around the League: Week 7 12/2-12/8

Because Chris Paul’s contract was also insane. I’d give up a 1st if Tyler had multiple years left on his contract. Love is a good player, he’d make us better and we’d almost surely make the playoffs with him, but we’d be locking our team in place. Is Rubio/Booker/Oubre/Love/Ayton a title contender? ...

I don’t remember the Hardcore Luka Bandwagon being so crowded, many liked him but most were worried about how his athleticism would translate into the NBA.

Re: Around the League: Week 7 12/2-12/8

Porzingis wasn’t going to stay...they didn’t get a ton, but essentially 3 1sts is not bad. Plus they dumped THJ contract...of course they didn’t use the cap space well. There is definitely a path to rebuild though. I like Mitchell Robinson. I’m pretty meh on RJ Barrett, but he’s talent. I think he’s...

Re: The Luka Doncic is Great, Woe is Us thread

I'd be super curious to hear what James Jones wanted to do during that draft. Jones has made some good moves this offseason, but in retrospect I worry that some of them were accidents, such as getting the much better Rubio after stupidly going after Terry Rozier first. Imagine how awful this team w...

Re: The Luka Doncic is Great, Woe is Us thread

Did the Suns announce they were taking Ayton before the draft? I remember it being pretty locked in that we were taking Ayton. I remember reports that Ayton was hanging out with our players as if we had already drafted him.

Re: The Luka Doncic is Great, Woe is Us thread

I waffled back and forth, ultimately settled on Ayton. Thought it would be hard for us to be wrong though...which was why I was in favor of trading back. I would have been good with Ayton/Doncic/Bagley/JJJ

Re: Game Day: Suns (9-11) @ Pelicans (6-15), Thurs 12/5/19

Agreed...it’s the 80/20 rule. In order to get the 80, we’ve got to be ok with the 20. Maybe Oubre is more 70/30, still a positive though.

Re: Game Day: Suns (9-11) @ Pelicans (6-15), Thurs 12/5/19

- We are seeing Washington's version of Oubre more often. He's going to be inconsistent, and he's going to make dumb plays. He's got to bring the energy and emotion every game, and tonight he made up for his offense with his defense. Maybe he misses Baynes the most. I go back and forth on Oubre. I ...

Re: The Luka Doncic is Great, Woe is Us thread

I don’t think Igor was our first choice at head coach. We wanted Bud or Fizdale. And I remember an interview with Ryan McD before we knew we had the #1 pick and while he didn’t mention any names, it was clear he thought Ayton was head and shoulders above the rest. Then his reaction at the draft lott...

Re: Game Day: Suns (9-11) @ Pelicans (6-15), Thurs 12/5/19

For all the hate Oubre is getting he still had 15 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 blocks. He makes boneheaded plays from time to time, but he also makes a lot of really good plays. You need those guys...he’s the opposite of guys like Bender. Bender rarely did anything bad, but he also rarely did anything g...

Was also amazed at how much Jrue was able to get away with defensively. You get a reputation as a great defender and they’ll let you play physical and give you the benefit of the doubt.

Rubio in his last 5 games: 50 assists and 6 turnovers. He was at 8.3 assists and 1.7 turnovers per game coming into tonight. I didn’t realize how well he was taking care of the ball.
