Re: Game Day: Lakers (7-2) @ Suns (6-3), Tues 11/12/19

Pretty sure it was against leBron last season that ayton guarded him, did it well and gave us an insight as to how else we might use him ... that up our sleeves for next time, Baynes takes AD and we’re an even better chance.

Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

Not much of a sports better - yet, I hope - but the over was too easy on this one.

40-44 my prediction and I reckon we could do better.

Yeah we did - 32% and 17% on 2’s and 3’s vs 55% and 54% against us.

Re: Game Day: Heat (5-2) @ Suns (5-2), Thurs 11/7/19

For sure .. it’s the little things / rougher edges that could make a big difference to his game. I never wanted to admit any Mitchell superiority but we’re looking at it.

Re: Game Day: Heat (5-2) @ Suns (5-2), Thurs 11/7/19

Interesting about Tyler herro demanding to guard booker .. did a reasonable job of it as well it seems, and his booker’s turnovers at the end point towards a pretty evident flaw in his game. Hard to believe but even though booker scores more points at a better eFG% than Donavan Mitchell and has mor...

Game Day: Heat (5-2) @ Suns (5-2), Thurs 11/7/19

Relative flaw probably a better way to say it, and Mitchell’s PER has come down to 26.4. Still a big difference.

Re: Suns News: Week 3 11/4-11/10

Ya I’m sure he has been done growing for awhile, he didn’t go to the combine though and the only official measurement I’ve seen came when he was in high school. I just wonder if anyone’s measured his wingspan recently. Don’t know why they don’t do it formally, it’s finally happened with heights at ...

Re: Suns News: Week 3 11/4-11/10

There’s a few pre-draft links in the below link that mainly say 7’1”: https://www.nbascoutinglive.com/mikal-bridges-scouting-report/ A few others not on there have it as high as 7’2”. Checking his age, he was 2 months shy of being 22 when he was drafted so all of his growing probably will have been ...

Re: Suns News: Week 3 11/4-11/10

https://twitter.com/co_dhunt/status/1192227749093490688?s=21 This was fun. Bridges is listed as having a 7’1 wingspan, but I don’t think he’s been officially measured. At least not in a few years. Chris Vernon said they’re the longest arms he’s seen. KOC said there is no way they are only 7’1....sa...

Re: Game Day: 76ers (5-0) @ Suns (4-2), Mon 11/4/19

Nice quarter so far. It's a little anti-climactic without Embiid and Ayton but still a great matchup. Both teams came to play, playing great D, knocking down shots. We were up 8 at one point with the starters but the 2nd unit's offense stalled and we're down 1 on a Horford 3 to end the qtr. Our sta...

Re: Around the League: Week 2 10/28-11/3

In retrospect, yes we definitely should have drafted Luka, but I don’t think he had proven he would be a superstar. He’s shown that the concerns about him were wrong, but they were fair at the time. He wasn’t in great shape and wasn’t a great athlete. Even with those concerns, he was clearly worthy...

Re: Ayton Possible 25 Game Suspension

I don't mind if a player smokes weed. Many athletes derive a substantial pain relief benefit from marijuana. Being in pro sports is hard on one's body and leads to lots of pain and soreness. I'd much rather he self-medicated with weed than pain pills or alcohol or whatever. At risk of sounding like...

Ayton Possible 25 Game Suspension

That may be true, Nodack! BUT: Weed is regarded as a gateway drug. At least here in Austria. That‘s why, you can‘t legally purchase it. For such an advanced nation I’m surprised to hear that. In the UK minor offences are more or less ignored these days, although I suspect that’s more to do with pos...

Morant’s been good (17/3.5/5), Brandon Clarke solid (10/5/1), JJJ maybe a little slower out of the blocks than expected (15/6.5/1) but nothing to worry about I don’t think. I love this core and they will be fun to watch the next few years. D’anthony Melton getting very little burn. Unlike Carter. G...
