Re: Suns Sign Bridges to Extension

You are right, but I also remember somebody mentioning that they were probably trying to get both deals done to announce them together, and that makes sense to me. Let's see if Ayton will budge a bit from his full max request (according to what I've read). I guess if we really aren't offering even ...

Re: All Things Ayton

I just don't see any way that Bridges gets a max contract. He's like a 4th or 5th piece for a contending team. I love the guy, but he isn't a max player. And I really don't think other teams think he is one, either. if he enters FA next year, he will be a top 5 FA. So teams will have to throw more ...

It saves money to pay Bridges now; it saves money to pay Ayton later.

Re: 2020 Election Thread

I don't think Carter was a great President, but Carter lost in '80 partly because Reagan illegally cut a deal so that Iran wouldn't release hostages before the election, which made Carter look bad. https://jacobinmag.com/2020/01/ronald-reagan-october-surprise-carter-iran-hostage-crisis-conspiracy h...

Re: 2020 Election Thread

On the second day of his presidency, Carter pardoned all Vietnam War draft evaders by issuing Proclamation 4483. During his term, two new cabinet-level departments—the Department of Energy and the Department of Education—were established. He created a national energy policy that included conservati...

Re: Tesla

Not trying to justify the outsourcing, just saying that with the amount of bureaucracy in these larger companies that it's often more efficient , under certain market conditions, to outsource. I think the liability discussions are a result of that arrangement, rather than a driving force behind it,...

You do admit that there were entire games, and multiple in a row, where Ayton seemed uninterested in playing, right?

Re: All Things Ayton

Nobody in the history of the league scored more points per game that Bridges last year with a 15% or lower usage. If he even comes close to that same scoring per usage with a normal uptick in touches, he can be our #2 when Paul declines.

Re: All Things Ayton

Bridges has been more consistent, but Bridges has never played even close to as well in a big situation as Ayton did during this past season's playoff run. If Bridges had ever been as impactful and dominant as Ayton was during that run, it might be different. But Bridges seems to be showing that he...

Re: Weekly News Threads

What if we made like a Google Sheet and signed up for the weekly threads? That is a good idea. I would put more into it if I knew the week I had signed up for, then maybe it would be ~30% as good as Carey's. Also, if you do that, you could easily make it a template so we would all have a similar fo...

It is so satisfying to see a defender drop their head in shame after a play your team makes. That last bit of the clip is the perfect ending when you see Covington's head drop after the 3 splashes.

Bridges doesn't deserve the max at all. But I don't think he has shown less consistency than Ayton.

Re: 2020 Election Thread

Everyone keeps saying 3.5T, when that is a ten year figure. Annually it is 350B, which is less than half the money the US spends each year blowing things up and killing people. Maybe it makes sense to spend about half of your "blowing things up" budget on "building things up" ins...

Are you sure the US involvement didn't embolden China more, and create the super restrictive regime that NK is now?

And wasn't the same thing said about Viet Nam?

Re: Tesla

So many people say Season 2 is the worst. I think it is on par with Season1. I would go 3, 2/1, 4, 5. And 5 is a distant finisher, but still better than 99% of TV ever made.

Re: World Politics

Sounds like we like to keep our boys busy to justify their existence. On the other hand when we have been unprepared we have gotten bit. We keep our boys busy to justify paying trillions to defense contractors and warmongers. And that is why we lose these 'wars.' It doesn't matter if we win to them...
