This story is burning up the TV and Twitter the past few days. A whistleblower in the federal government has submitted a complaint about promises between President Trump (/ his administration) and the President of Ukraine. The complaint alleges that Trump promised hundreds of millions of dollars of ...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

Yea Rubio won MVP of the tourney playing some great basketball. Great to see him play well after a down year in Utah and we'll need the kind of on-court leadership he showed the past few weeks. Just want him well rested to make sure he doesn't burn out or get injured. I hope we see a little bit of ...

Doesn't legalization of marijuana poll well these days? What percent of voters want it to be legal?

Re: Democratic Primary Debates

What did y'all think of the third Dem debate last night? I thought Biden was awful. He seemed tired, confused, stuttering, stammering, rambling. The answer he gave about racism, where he started by rambling something about radios and record players and black kids needing to hear more words (??), the...

Holy crap, the USA just lost again, this time to Serbia. The USA team was down 32-7 after the first quarter.

Re: Impeachment

I think Biden's age and gaffes are going to get him. He keeps forgetting or messing up people's names, places, dates. He thinks things happened when he was VP that were during the Bush or Trump presidency. Etc.

Some of us thought that it was stupid to sign Ariza, and that Anderson sucked, from day one.

Mitchell is a great player. But they didn't have many players of his caliber on the squad.

Re: 2019 FIBA World Cup

Maybe it's splitting hairs. But I do think they needed more talent. More shooting talent, more rebounding talent, more passing talent, more defensive talent. Not a bunch of "energy" or "athleticism" guys like Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Miles Turner. I mean, this team had Harrison Barnes on it! P.U....

Re: Suns sign Rubio

If they won 30 games last year, they still would have trailed the 14th team by 3 games. Winning only 30 games will be a complete disaster, imo. A lot a things would have to go very wrong if that happened. They need to scaffold up each year. 30+, 40+, etc. learning to win and growing together. There...

Re: Impeachment

I agree. Bernie also has almost 100% name recognition already, and almost every voter knows about him and has formed their opinion of him. This means it'd be hard for him to suddenly win over a bunch of voters and surge in the polls. Everybody knows who and what he is already. And frankly Bernie is ...

Re: 2018 FIBA World Cup

Yeah I mean, I always want the USA to win. But if they refuse to try their hardest and send their best, maybe they need to learn the lesson that that is simply not good enough.

Re: Impeachment

I think Warren will be the nominee, if Biden loses his lead. I don't think Bernie can win. Too divisive and polarizing.

Re: 2018 FIBA World Cup

I don't know why everybody comes into these international competitions so highly confident in the USA squad. We never send our best. The other countries not only do send their best (other than a few exceptions like Canada), but they also play together beautifully, have intelligent team strategies, w...

Re: The Next Suns Power Forward

All of those guys are probably better individual players than Saric, but winning in the NBA is about fit and role. Saric is a better shooter than the others, he's cheaper, and he won't hog the ball. I could see a healthy Love being better for us, but the contract is huge and it'd take too much to ge...

2019 FIBA World Cup

I came to post about the USA being beaten and realized we don't have a WCs thread. So, here's one. France eliminates Team USA from World Cup Evan Fournier scored 22 points, Rudy Gobert added 21 points and 16 rebounds, and France beat Team USA 89-79 in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, rallying from a ...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

I appreciate your analysis, and there is some logic to it, but I don't think you can just look at games that way and decide on a +/- of wins like that. Arguably we are a much stronger overall team, with a better PG, a healthier star SG, a year older and wiser young star center, a new offensive weapo...

Update: The GOP candidate won the NC 9th district election by roughly 2%. The GOP candidate also won the redder 3rd district by a wider margin. Republicans 2-for-2 in these special elections.
