Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

I don’t think Rubio was initially an option for us. He was going to Indiana, everyone had been assuming that for awhile. Indy switched course at the last minute when Bogdonavic signed with Utah. They had more money to spend and went after Brogdon instead. Not sure if the suns were going after Rozier...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

McDonough strikes again. He started with the same coaching staff as TJ and Devin. I guess they would be further along too? Sounds like someone who is trying to find a scapeGOAT for his shortcomings as an NBA player. Although, in his defense I thought it was a mistake to being in Chandler. It could ...

We literally lost 6 games in a row when he got hurt.
We lost the first of those 6, and dug a huge hole in the second, before Nash got hurt.
Fair enough, we still lost the 4 games he missed

Re: Acts of domestic terrorism

Okay, well, where are these brave Republicans who think Trump is the worst thing ever? They sure don't say it publicly. The entire party just lets Trump run roughshod over all our governmental and societal norms and lets him stoke fear and division and racism and violence all over the country. No s...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

Rick Rubio's teams have averaged ~33 wins per season. If you only include his time in Minnesota, he averaged 28.8 wins per season. The wolves were significantly better in the two seasons after he left. Betting on the under for 30 games is a tight bet, but reasonable given the evidence. 2011–12 NBA ...

Re: Diamondbacks start well in April

Yep, that first year it didn’t look great, but Greinke was a very good pitcher for us and we managed to get some real prospects in return for him. I wonder if we’ll make a splash in free agency this upcoming offseason now that we unloaded Greinke’s salary.

Re: How many wins? Figuring total...w/ questions

My gut tells me Rubio and Monty should be good for at least 10 wins. A full season of Oubre, an improved Ayton with more usage/touches in the post, Saric as a stretch 4 and a more efficient Booker should add another 5-7 wins. It'll be very difficult for Booker to be as efficient as last year so pen...

No apology coming. Your Trump stokes racist hatred with his words and deeds every day. And your GOP keeps the laws in place to put assault weapons in so many hands. You're all to blame. You can go apologize to the relatives of all the dead in El Paso and Dayton for voting for a bigot fascist for Pr...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Here are FiveThirtyEight's predictions for the next NBA season. 538 is not a sports site primarily; they crunch numbers and stats and data. So mostly I don't take their views too seriously. But it's interesting to see where they think the data points for the season to come. For example, they like t...

Re: How many wins? Figuring total...w/ questions

I think the west is about the same. Some teams got better, some got worse. I’d expect last years team to perform pretty similarly this year as they did last year.

Re: Diamondbacks start well in April

I was surprised they traded Greinke--I get the motivation behind the move, but was it worth it to trade a fan favorite, who really wasn't showing a lot of signs of slowing down? I think so. Was this team going anywhere? Most likely a non playoff team and at best a wildcard team that loses in the fi...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

I expect Booker to average more points per game this season. Very possible. We didn’t really add any scorers to the lineup. Our overall offense should be improved and Ayton is really the only obvious candidate for significantly more touches. We lost the Warren/Melton/Jackson/Bender touches. Booker ...
