Re: Around the League: Regular Season Week 1 (10/19 - 10/25)

Dallas has a talent problem. Most of their roster consists of players who are being expected to perform beyond their abilities. Yup. And Carlisle was a coach who could bring that out of them, or at least make the pieces fit. Kidd is not that dude. I don't know what they were thinking with that hire...

Re: All Things Ayton

One thing I've been thinking is that Jones and Monty have a view into Ayton's work ethic that we don't. We see the progress on the defensive end, but they see how early he shows up to practice, how late he stays and how much work he actually puts in during the offseason. He was out of shape coming i...

Re: TV Shows / Movies

Completely agree. The VIPs nearly killed it. I tried to compartmentalize that and appreciate the rest of the show for what it was.

Squid Game was great.

Succession remains the best thing on TV.

Bjelica would have been a nice upgrade over Frank.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

No one is disrespecting Ayton. The worst you can do as a team is hand out a bad contract. Some teams can withstand it, but small market teams can’t. Just look at Minnesota and Sacto. Look at us with Bledsoe and Knight. Mikal and Landry took a little less for some security now. If Ayton wants the ma...

Re: All Things Ayton

I think there's validity to the narrative that Ayton "sacrificed" his numbers for the betterment of the team, but I also think a lot of that "sacrifice" was showing up to camp out of shape and playing tentatively for more than half the season. This is a complex situation. I do th...

Re: All Things Ayton




Another reason to have gotten it done is that I think Ayton at the max is still a very tradeable contract.

If anyone wants to move up a couple spots I’d be willing to slide down. I’m picking 3rd currently.
I’ll trade 9 for 3.
