Re: Around the League: Offseason

Random comment for the day - I’m currently drinking behind the Illawarra Hawks stadium where Lamelo ball played .. had no idea it was in this city called Wollongong. An ex-steel working town on the beach, he definitely picked an out of the way team being 90 minutes south of Sydney by car ..

Re: Free Agency Thread

Jalen Smith as insurance if we decide to let Ayton walk? We become a small(ish) ball 3pt shooting machine.

I'm not comfortable paying Ayton the max as it stands.

Re: 2020 Election Thread

A great example of data science put to use for nefarious reasons and no doubt not the last time that happens (hello Brexit..). I rarely watch any series' so cheers for the summary.

Black Mirror sounds pretty good though.

Re: 2020 Suns Draft Grade

I'm the only A .. hooooomer! And only fool .. with Haliburton on the board it can't be a great grade if I think we got the lesser player or if I think we could have drafted Haliburton and traded down for Smith and an extra pick. I think both are possible. But am not unhappy with Smith as he was cle...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

I can't really disagree with you so I'll just go with Smith must have been been JJ's guy all along regardless of his thoughts of Haliburton. Meaning it's a doubly ballsy af pick as not only was Haliburton on the board, none of these 9 mocks had him in the lottery. https://www.nba.com/news/2020-conse...

Re: 2020 Suns Draft Grade

I'm taking the San Antonio cue that something wasn't quite right about Haliburton (I've no idea what) and JJ knows what he's doing.

Really I'd give a B+ but hey, let's go crazy.

Re: NBA Draft 2020

Maybe a better way to say it is Haliburton is a higher bust risk than Smith and JJ wants to avoid that. Or JJ just has an idea of what he wants the team to look like and Smith was always his guy. Either way, based on the CJ / Jalen Smith draft pattern - and now having watched some tape of Smith myse...

Re: NBA Draft 2020

Size, shooting, character - and a great looking stroke - that's the JJ trend. All three together look like solid a predictor of NBA success, albeit for supporting roles rather than starring roles. That approach fine with me after the horror show McD years. And if we're in win now mode perhaps JJ thi...

Re: NBA DRAFT NIGHT 2020

Who tf is Jalen Smith?

A 6'10" .368% 3Pt .750% FT shooter is who,

But this is a guard's league, and Tyrese was available, so I'm not really seeing this.
