Re: Coronovirus: When should we be concerned?

https://youtu.be/pSaI2wIfZu0 SMH lol Hey, thanks for what you do. Stay safe out there. Thanks Bone! I second that...can't even imagine what you guys are going through right now. It's a shame you can't get proper supplies. I third that - I don't know you too well but maximum respect.

Re: Suns News: Week 20 3/9-3/15

I don't think so. I could only see it happening if the Lakers were being run under really bad ownership. I mean like Dolan or Sterling type bad. Winning creates all sorts of fans - and if you'd said in 1998 Manchester City would be the biggest club in Manchester in less than 13 years, when they had...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

Bad organisations have bad characters and bad characters are in bad organisations - one is the other as the other is one, I guess you could say in an appropriately fuzzy way. Sarver's the main bad character but he's not going anywhere, but getting rid of McD was his first step in the right direction...

Re: Suns News: Week 20 3/9-3/15

That wiki link is good - it summarises a lot of what's out there showing the economic benefits to a city from its government funding a private sports stadium are outweighed by private enterprise gains. And that's the different dynamic in the US vs Europe - team owners use "I'll relocate the club to ...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

With all due respect, I don't know how you can *not* blame this exclusively on the organization. We drafted these players, we then developed them in the wrong way with an environment and coaching staff that clearly did not help them grow, and then we quickly got rid of them. I'm not complaining too...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I miss Bender but not the others. Chriss was a marginal talent and Jackson was a knucklehead who made bad decisions on offense. If Jackson could shoot 3s better I might have had more patience for him. But I'm so relieved that he's gone. He drove me crazy. Best wishes to all of them in their new sit...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

Yeah, kinda of the same verdict about those three. We failed miserably developing Bender (perhaps a complete lack of intend), handled the keys too early to Chriss, wich mess up his head big time and blunt his development because of a shallow sense of entitlement and Jackson... oh my... what a train...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

Chriss's improvement is mainly because he's taking better shots now (60% withing 3' of the basket compared to only 39% as a Sun). So he's not really horrible anymore. Jackson, same thing. Not 77% of his shots were within 3' of the basket this year compared to 57% as a Sun. It makes you wonder how m...

Re: Suns News: Week 20 3/9-3/15

On the team culture thing - and slightly off on a tangent - but I'd bet there is a correlation between team success and quality of its training facilities and stadium. We suck, it doesn't help that TSA badly does also. But that is all being corrected. Speaking of which, there are a lot of pissed of...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

This might seem wild, but one scenario that has me intrigued is the following(but I admit highly unlikely): 2. Buy a draft pick in the 2nd round and draft Arturs Zagars. I am not sure that he will even be drafted or will keep his name in the draft, but I really like this kid from Latvia. He's much ...

I never understood why a young player would go for a nice two year deal in order to a maximise their earnings when it's finished. Sports careers are so often limited injury - lock in for 4 years for less money per year but greater overall and worry about the payday after that. Is there any better e...

The senators who truly committed misconduct should face strong consequences. But I have so little faith in our system any more to actually do the right thing. If I had to guess, I'd say they all escape with no real punishment of any kind. If you know someone in America you're good it seems ... one ...
