Bender's first 30-point game incoming?
Let's start with 25...
That would sure make it easier, but you have to start with zero. Them’s the rules.
I was talking about the wolves. Don't we usually start by spotting the other team 25 points?

Re: Game Day: Suns (11-34) @ Raptors (33-13), Thurs 1/17/19

mikal has some games where you just think, oh yeah, this guy has never played in the NBA before this year and he has a lot to learn. And then other times you see him do things on defense that only top defenders can do. I can't say I know he was worth two first round picks, but if he ever gets a sec...

Re: Game Day: Suns (11-34) @ Raptors (33-13), Thurs 1/17/19

It makes it a coin flip, if everything is averaged out. You would hope your GM is better than average.

If you cut 82 games off of that number and go with 373 games, 178 guys drop out, leaving 213 (54.5%) in. Still not much better.

Maybe not, that team will get pricey. Bledsoe is a free agent as well. They may choose to let him go, but he’s playing well for them this year.

I know it's pointless to debate a hypothetical. But I think even with Harden, this would be a losing team. We don't have the 3-point shooting on our roster nor the offensive system to maximize the value of Harden's game like Houston has.
It is not pointless.

Re: Game Day: Suns (11-34) @ Raptors (33-13), Thurs 1/17/19

So I had to check 2nd rounders...

579 selections taken in same time frame (1991-2010).

96 made it to 455 games, or 17%. 1st rounders are 3.5x more likely to make it that long versus 2nd, and picks 10-30 are 3x more likely.

Re: Game Day: Suns (11-34) @ Raptors (33-13), Thurs 1/17/19

OK, so I had to look it up. I limited it to twenty years worth of drafting, and excluded the last several to give guys plenty of time to establish themselves as players and get a good number of games played. So that is the 1991 draft through 2010. And I expanded it to picks 10-30 so we have a nice r...

Re: Woj: Mavs Close to Moving Dennis Smith. Suns in Talks

But middleton will opt out this summer, too, right? If they pay both those guys, it will be really hard to pay Giannis the 40 million he will command in 2 years. You can't have 40-50M/year tied up in Brogdon and Middleton then give him 40, can you?

There is a question I ask myself. I like Booker to death, he is really good. But did he deserve the max contract? Isn't the max contract for players who win games for their teams? To be honest I'm a little bit disappointed with him this season so far. Seems like he has a burden which he isn't able ...

Re: Woj: Mavs Close to Moving Dennis Smith. Suns in Talks

And back to Brogdon, he is shooting 52% on FGs, 42% from 3, and 95% from the line. Not only that, he outscores his man and doesn't need a lot of shots to do it. He scores 1.36 pps, where Russell scores 1.11. advanced stats for these two--what does Russell give you that Brogdon doesn't? Rk Player Se...

I don't understand why we couldn't have given more time to both Melton and Okobo. Yeah, I really don't get it. There can't be a mandate from Jones to play Crawford, right? I have a hard time believing that Igor is watching the same games we are, and decides to play him. Melton and Okobo were positi...

Re: Suns News: Week 14 1/14-1/20

There are at least 100 forwards who have played at least 20 games and have a usage % less than 23 who have higher assist ratios than TJ Warren and Kelly Oubre. TJ may be the worst passer I have seen in a long time. It seems that twice a week he throws an inbounds pass after a made basket that gets ...

If Goran declines his player option, we could have IT, Bledsoe, and Goran all on the market this summer. :lol: So...should we sign all three? :P OF COURSE! But we have to promise each of them they will be the lead guard with the ball in their hands. Maybe we could sign Brandon Knight this summer as...

That is a really interesting way of wording a refute of the story. Lots of qualifiers. And when is the last time you heard anyone from that team publicly comment on anything?
