Re: NBA Playoffs 2020

Has a championship team in recent history not had two stars? The only I can think of are the Pistons and last years Raptors (don’t count Lowry on same level as Kawhi, Lebron, AD) You could argue the Spurs never had 2 top 10 players after their first championship. Dallas 2011 only had Dirk (this is ...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

Ya I really don’t think bringing in FVV means Rubio is gone. If FVV wants to be here, it’s actually pretty accomplishable without losing anyone from our core 6(Booker, Ayton, Bridges, Oubre, Rubio, Johnson) We have 19 million in cap space as we currently stand. If that’s not enough, we can move our...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

I woild actually like to see this group of kids and Rubio with a high quality addition. FVV is exactly that and if by pure cap space you were getting haim, I say don't trade Rubio for one more season at least (unless the deal was too good refuse, of course, but thqt's hardly hqppening). Still need a...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

If we renounce our guys to free up the capspace needed, then we can't go over the cap to re-sign them? I'm fuzzy on cap holds and how that works. We'd use all our capspace on FVV and not be able to bring back Baynes or Dario? That's correct. They'd be unrestricted free agents and we wouldn't have m...

Re: NBA Playoffs 2020

Jordan won 10 scoring titles, DPOY, didn't lose in the finals (LeBron in 2011 vs Mavs is huge stain on these discussions) and elevated the NBA globally like no other athlete ever, LeBron included. At this moment, I don't see a real case. If LeBron wins 6 when all is said and done, it could be a tec...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

You sure you don't want to trade up for Toppin? Hali I know it's a no. Toppin is probably at the top of my draft board. I really like him. But I just can't bring myself to be enthusiastic about giving up a lot to move up in this draft. I just don't think the value is there. I would entertain moving...

Re: NBA Playoffs 2020

I can't wait till LeBron retires. At this pace you are gonna have to wait, like, five more years. It's insane how he has the body and durability of Karl Malone, the talent of Magic and the dedication of Kobe Bryant. He has the chance to win 2-3 more rings with the Lakers if Davis doen't get injurie...

Re: Around the League: Offseason

If you can find me a trade for a star involving Oubre+, I am all ears Ben Simmons? Outstanding talent, even with the obvious flaw. The shot is absurd, but imagine him playing at PF or even C. Driving and kicking to Booker or the snipers. I'd spend up to Oubre, 2020 #10, swap+protected+unprotected f...

Re: Around the League: Offseason

Oubre is basically the opposite to addition by substraction. I can see how some of the things he does can rub you the wrong way, but the intensity and, yes, talent, are of great help for this team. If you can find me a trade for a star involving Oubre+, I am all ears, but If we trade him for a light...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

The more I think about it, the more I’d like to trade down in this draft. Assuming Haliburton isn’t there at 10. Would Boston do 14 and 30 for 10? Might be a lot to move up 4 spots, but if their guy drops.. Minny has 18 and 31. Jerome/#10 for Korkmaz/#21/#34/#36 Purely from a value standpoint, this...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

I haven’t seen anyone discuss the possibility of trading up for Haliburton. Is that a possibility? What would you offer a team in the 4-7 range? I made an exercise of rosterbation on Aug. 23: "For Haliburton, I'd talk to ATL. Their GM has showed he is willing to trade down and gamble big; perhaps o...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

PHX can get CP3 for Rubio and filler (Kaminsky, Jerome, Okobo, Leque) if they operate as an under the cap team, which means letting go Saric and Baynes. But that includes keeping the #10. If it means I can keep Oubre, I'd consider sending OKC a 2021 or 2022 lottery protected 1stR (that turns into tw...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

Doesn't surprise me Jalen Smith is on the rise. Toppin, Hali and Smith have been my top targets so far, although I admit I have not dipped too much into the draft this year.

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

Oh man. The Greek Freak on the Suns? Pinch me. No pinches forthcoming. Keep dreaming for now. You’ll wake up eventually. When it happens, let me know. Still waiting for Kobe and T-Mac to collaborate in Phoenix (remember that rumor?) I remember it was said ORL wanted Marion and JJ, so PHX said no.
