Re: 2019 NBA Draft Thread

That is a funny idea for a trade. If we started all of: Morant Booker Markannen Ayton That would be a horrendous defensive team. But that's a lot of firepower, too. You probably have to keep Zion if you get the #1 pick (a trade like that, if it fails, can crush a franchise). But it's at least a fun ...

I find Booker to be less and less likable every year.
I agree to an extent. Going through year after year of losing and perpetually "rebuilding" is tough on a player. It must be hard to be a consummate professional every year on such a mess of a team.

Re: Jimmer Fredette

Thanks for posting that video. It was an interesting watch. That's nuts that he immediately scores 73 in a game and was the league MVP with 37 ppg. Wasn't the rap on Jimmer a few years ago that he was stuck up, had kind of bought into the "Jimmer mania" hype a bit too much, and didn't get that he ne...

Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

I would be really disappointed if we hire Kevin McHale. There's some, let's say, off-court stuff with him that I do not like.

Re: Game Day: Pistons (36-33) @ Suns (17-54), Thurs 3/21/19

I caught only parts of this game. I am always watching Bender to see how he'll do. He had a few nice defensive plays on Griffin, but his stat line makes it look like he hardly even showed up: 2 points on 1-4 shooting with 4 boards and 5 fouls. This game was another one where Josh Jackson frustrated ...

Re: Jimmer Fredette

I'm fine with it if we sign the Jimmer. Doubt he will be a star for us, but there's little risk if we sign him for the rest of the season. And we're depleted enough by injury that we could use another rotation guard.

Re: Game Day: Pistons (36-33) @ Suns (17-54), Thurs 3/21/19

This feels like another loss incoming. It feels like we are cratering again after our little feel-good win streak. Too many important players out (Warren, Oubre, Johnson, etc.) and not enough firepower or hustle remaining on the roster. Booker doesn't seem to be able to drag this crew to wins withou...

He can hit 3s, too. If Holmes' injury requires him to miss time, I think I'd be good with getting some Wood.
When he wakes up, do you think he has Morning Wood?

I'm just sad that I somehow lost the title of "Most pessimistic about Josh Jackson." I can't even get my nickname for him, "The Net Negative," to stick!

Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

Honest question...Why are you so high on Bender and so low on Jackson? They’ve both been pretty awful on the court. What do you see in Bender? I think Bender does a lot of things well. Mostly whenever I see him play, he seems to play good defense. He moves well laterally, stays with his man, does a...

Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

I would be surprised if Bender took a veteran's minimum contract. I would think some team would offer him 2-3 times that at least, since that is still a tiny contract in today's NBA. If you're a solid team like the Spurs or Raptors or whoever, why wouldn't you offer Bender $2.5m or $3m? He's easily ...

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-53) @ Rockets (42-26), Fri 3/15/19

I really like TJ Warren and was sticking up for him when folks were bagging on him earlier this season. He has been one of our most reliable scorers. But I have to say, he's now been out for an extended period, and it doesn't seem to have set us back at all. If anything we play better having more ba...

Re: Game Day: Bulls (19-52) @ Suns (17-54), Mon 3/18/19

This has all the makings of a trap game where we play down to the level of a mediocre opponent and lose a game we ought to be able to win. We'll probably let some random Bull like Markanen or Lavine go off for 40+.

We're number 26!! We definitely have been improving this month. I think this probably causes Igor to keep his job. Don't you think? I also wonder what it means for our offseason. I hope it doesn't convince our front office that we just need to run it back with this same team and count on natural imp...
