Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I really don’t think we would have gotten anything for keeping rivers and chandler around. We could have sat them on the bench and said if you want to play, work out a buyout that saves us some money, but that doesn’t build goodwill with players. Letting those guys go was a pretty meh move to me. De...

Man you know what just poped in my mind? I hate we waived Kyle Korver. No way I buy 'no room' or 'kids will need playing time'.
We needed to waive him to clear cap space to sign Rubio. His contract was bigger than Jackson’s if he wasn’t waived.

Oh, and we don’t really have any reason to be optimistic about our defense, which is, you know, like an important part of the game.
I don’t think we got worse defensively, but barring a huge leap from Ayton, we won’t be good.

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Here’s a thought, and I’m not saying we’ll be better than the spurs, but based on players alone, which roster would you rather have? Booker or Derozan? Ayton or Aldridge? Saric or Gay? Rubio or Murray? Bridges or White? Oubre or Carroll? Johnson or Mills? Baynes or Poeltl? It’s pretty even from a ta...

What's the minimum to make the playoffs in the west this year?
I’d guess mid-40’s. 8 seed will probably have 45-47 wins

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I don't mind Kaminsky as a player and an outside shooting big off the bench, but he was an overpay. Meh, he was a 1 year deal at the room MLE....doesn’t impact our cap at all...literally just money out of Sarvers pocket. You could argue that we could have spent that on a better player, and I’d agre...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

ding. ding. ding. Does everyone forget how much we were clapping ourselves on the back for adding a "generational center" to our team with our first ever #1 pick in the draft? He still has time, but last year he was completely ineffectual and our opponents shot 7% BETTER at the rim when he was on t...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

I really don't understand how you can compare last year's offseason to this one. It was obvious in hindsight that we began and played most of the season with an unbalanced roster. This year is the opposite. I would be extremely surprised if we're having this same conversation a year from now. Who k...

Re: 2019 FIBA World Cup

I really hate the take that we needed more talent. France payed better than the US - they didn't have more talent. The reason our National team never plays good ball is that we have basketball culture that doesn't value bball iq and playing as a team. Yeah, when we send our best we can play like tr...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

I think the big difference from last year to this year is we aren’t counting on any unproven players anymore. Admittedly, I was one of those posters last year that thought the Ariza signing was good. I didn’t love it, but felt it was harmless and thought his veteran presence would be helpful. Still,...

Yea but to what end? Where would Griffin get us to? 40 wins and still missing the playoffs? He wouldn't make us contenders and we'd be stuck with a injury prone player who has 3 years 100+mil left on his deal. If we were at 35-38 wins last year and looking to make a jump, I might be more interested...

Re: 2018 FIBA World Cup

I can understand why booker chose not to play, but I wish he would have. Would have been a very good experience and I think we’d have seen him take on the alpha scorer role. So at the least we could maybe have some ammo for the Mitchell vs booker debate.

Re: Suns sign Rubio

It’s very easy to just write off the suns. We’ve been terrible for awhile, no one, besides us, is gonna question someone who just assumes we’re only winning 25 games. The west did get stronger, but I don’t think by that much. Lakers, clippers, Jazz, pelicans - stronger Nuggets, blazers, Rockets, Spu...
