Were there other players involved they didn't want?

I think Kendrick Perkins' basketball takes are terrible, so, yeah...
I'd be fine with never hearing he or Jalen Rose talk about basketball ever again. Cringeworthy most of the time.
Add Paul Pierce to that list.

Re: Around the League: Offseason

John Wall's contract is just as bad as Westbrook. The only difference is that Westbrook is an All-Star; John Wall doesn't play basketball anymore. Exactly. And player for player (based on potential), I see it as mostly even. But I expect Wall to never really be the player he was, and I think Westbr...

Re: Coronavirus: When should we be concerned?

Based on the Tuskegee experiments (probably not the right word, but not sure what is better), a lot black people are extremely untrusting of the government doing anything to their bodies. I get that, even though I strongly disagree with the current reasoning on this vaccine. I mean, the government w...

Re: Around the League: Offseason

Josh Jackson has a ton of talent. Detroit was smart to take a chance on him, though 10 million guaranteed over 2 years seems a little high for what he’s accomplished. Could turn out to be well worth the risk. You can't tell me there was a bidding war for Josh Jackson. I find it hard to believe they...

How do we want to handle situations like 12/15, where the first game may or may not finish before the second begins? Should we just treat all games on the same day as simultaneous?
yes

Re: Suns 2020-21 Media Day/Training Camp

I'm fine with Ayton taking 16 to 20-foot jump shots if he's wide open and hitting around 45% of them like Amar'e did in most of his years as a Sun. Sure, but he needs to use the shot to get better shots. Make people cover him there so he can attack the rim. That's a whole new skill he needs to lear...

Re: Suns 2020-21 Media Day/Training Camp

I think it's interesting to discuss because the suns will be faced with this decision soon. Basing it off 2019-2020 Ayton I'm not maxing him. Id love to see him start to take over games and being that physically imposing presence we're all hoping he can transform to be. That is where I am right now...

Re: Suns 2020-21 Media Day/Training Camp

I’m not looking at stats this year to determine if Ayton is worth the max. The bottom line is, if he doesn’t show growth and fire in dominating the paint on the offensive end and continues to pussy out 15 feet away from the basket, he’s not a max player. He can average 20 and 10 and not be max wort...

Re: Suns 2020-21 Media Day/Training Camp

I wanted Doncic so very badly in that draft, but I feel like I've somehow morphed into one of the bigger Ayton defenders on the site. I really like him. He sometimes isn't as furious and aggressive as I wish he could be, but the guy can basically get 18 and 10 in his sleep. And I love how efficient...

Re: Suns 2020-21 Media Day/Training Camp

Ayton is like the poster child for why you can’t trust highlight reels. Everyone on this board knows what Ayton can do, we’ve seen him do all the things in that video. That’s the problem, we want him to do that all the time. Too often he is just content to take 16 foot jumpers, or that baseline fad...

Re: Betting Game

Maybe have a preseason betting game too..reset back to $1000 once regular season starts. Seems like dropping to 0 should eliminate you though. Maybe put in a certain amount of redo’s? zero redos. and I like the idea of trying it out in preseason so we all work out the kinks before real games begin.

Rule for discussion: if you bet your whole stake and lose, are you done for the season, or do you get to start over?

Re: Around the League: Offseason

That is pretty shocking about 9% of the league having COVID. I hope it doesn't lead to any long-term ill effects for them this coming season. I am worried that we won't be able to keep things running without a bubble. It is probably close to the current % of background COVID across the country for ...

Re: Suns 2020-21 Media Day/Training Camp

No one compared him to Bennett. Indy simply asked what former #1 picks didn’t get a max extension. Bennett and Fultz are the two. Also no one is saying we shouldn’t keep Ayton, just that maybe we shouldn’t just jump to max him as soon as we can. I’m not sure why we can’t have high expectations for ...
