Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

Yeah, those were favors to the players to rebuild goodwill with players and agents. It didn't help the team in the short term, but hopefully it helps in the long game.

They could have gotten in on trading for Porzingis, but oh well.

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

https://youtu.be/IOQJhymCuuE This video has me very hopeful of what Jerome may bring. Could be the steal of the draft in a few years. I refuse to get excited until I see him against NBA athleticism. My feeling right now is that in spite of his shooting ability and passing instincts his slow footedn...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

If anyone likes listening to podcasts, the Dunc'd On podcast most recently had the Suns overview with Michael Schwartz was really good. It was a breath of fresh air to have a guy that ACTUALLY knows what they are talking about with regards to the Suns on a podcast other than Suns podcasts. https://t...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I'm not on here saying the Suns will win 48 games and make the playoffs. But I do think they'll be competitive and start making strides toward the playoffs (30 - 40 wins). I'd like to think the following season that they will have a good shot at the playoffs. Nobody could say that either of these t...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I am always optimistic. It makes me a happier person. Expecting the worst all the time is just depressing. If things go bad, I still get paid the same. About my fandom and hobbies, I’m totally an optimist too. Real life is hard enough, to also translate it to the things that are supposed to bring j...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I'm curious why being pessimistic about the prospects of a team is being realistic? When did pessimism become synonymous with realism? Maybe it always has been. It's weird that we can call the prognosticators realists if they say the '04-'05 Suns winning only 35 games tops and are outlandish dreame...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

If Baynes can keep hitting 3's at a high percentage, and continues to be a solid defender and rebounder, he's going to have a much better RPM than Ayton potentially. Floor spacing centers who play great defense (Baynes was 18th out of 70 centers in defensive RPM) are worth their weight in gold. I s...

I thought this was interesting. Let me know what you think about some of the stats at the end of the article, about post-up possessions and paint touches.

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

Frank said that this whole off-season his focus has been on improving his defense. Lots of players say that, and they usually come back the same as before. I agree. Usually that's just lip service, but when I heard Kaminsky interviewed, it sounded like this was a focus each and every day in his off...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

Kaminsky is fine. He's probably not going to play much, so it's hard to hate his skill set. He's our 4th big, and we are likely to go small before playing him. He can shoot and he actually rebounds a bit better than our SF gang, so maybe he gets some time at backup 4 occasionally. I don't know how ...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

If you look at Frank's PER and per 36 numbers, they have improved each year. My only worry about him was the defensive fit at the time, as they needed a shot blocker who could rebound and stretch the floor. I really thought Vonleh would have been a good signing instead. Frank said that this whole of...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

Not asking to change your optimism. It is one of the reasons I love reading folks here. I think this all started by someone saying that a low 30s win number would be an awful year for this team. I think that is crazy, because it would be worlds better than we have been this decade. I am just saying...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

ding. ding. ding. Does everyone forget how much we were clapping ourselves on the back for adding a "generational center" to our team with our first ever #1 pick in the draft? He still has time, but last year he was completely ineffectual and our opponents shot 7% BETTER at the rim when he was on t...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

Honestly, Indy brought up a couple things that are little worrisome. Do we know exactly what kind of training staff they have and how they've replaced or rebuilt the scouting staff? I also think that the thing to worry about the most is if the Suns get off to a slow start, will Sarver be able to kee...

I appreciate the optimism, but people said the same thing last off-season. There were plenty of people here saying bring in Trevor was a really good signing and it would give us a big jump forward, coupled with a dominant 7-1 center and book a year older and...
