Looking nice.
Beautiful looking jump shot. Gives me some hope.

I keep watching UVA games trying to imagine him being an NBA player, and I just can't see it. Too slow. Too mechanical. I would love to be wrong.

Re: NBA Summer League

Actually, Embiid is the perfect example. He is a great player. He isn't just a great center. Karl Anthony Towns is another example. But it has become rarer that a center can be the best player or one of the best players on a winning a team. For comparison, take Andre Drummond. Super productive. Real...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Survey of 20 coaches, executives, and scouts, rates Suns acquisition as tied for the worst move of the summer. "Phoenix, meanwhile, was both docked for the three-year, $51 million contract it handed to Rubio, but also for the price it paid -- De'Anthony Melton and two second-round picks -- to dump ...

Solid move for them. If they can help Dragan get his shot back, he would pair well with Greek Freak.

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Harrison Barnes got 4 years, $85 million to return to Sacramento. How is that not near the top of their list? Khris Middleton averaged 18 points and 6 rebounds and was given a 5-year, $178 million contract by Milwaukee. That's $35.6 million a year. That's insane. Yeah, the Barnes deal is terrible. ...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Again, in terms of comparing the signings, a lot of people around the league scratched their head over our Nash contract. But he was worth that much to us at the time. Again, no one questioned Nash's basketball ability. He was an All-Star. No one questioned how much he was making a year either. The...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

That's my initial thought...that he was basically let go by Utah and we overpaid for a PG who can't shoot and was "hurting" Utah on offense. Even so, if you're a coach, exec or scout in the league and you saw us running Canaan, Melton, Okobo and Tyler out there at point, how is Rubio not an upgrade...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

According to Jon Bloom on AZSports radio, his sources say the Pistons would have taken Cam Johnson 15th if we hadn't taken him. I went back through the draft and realized I don’t think it was as big of a reach as initially thought. Sure, we still took him too high and should have traded back, but a...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

According to Jon Bloom on AZSports radio, his sources say the Pistons would have taken Cam Johnson 15th if we hadn't taken him. I think there is some truth to that. The Pistons are desperate for shooting and haven't had a legitimate small forward for over a year (Stanley Johnson was a colossal bust...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Do you guys remember how upset most Suns fans were when they traded Marbury for essentially nothing but cap space, expiring or short contracts and draft picks? The national media panned Jerry and the Suns for that move too. The trade of TJ was bad asset management, but really was bad timing. We nea...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Personally, I thought the worst thing we could have done on draft night is simply select one of the players projected to go in our range: White, Garland, Hunter, Culver. So I'm pretty pleased we avoided that and filled a starting roster spot instead. What is wrong with Hunter and Culver? I just don...

Embiid who is out of shape and has to rest constantly and Simmons who can't shoot.
Simmons and Embiid deserve a lot more credit than that.

I think the odds are he becomes a top 3-5 center.
The problem is the impact of that position. Ayton needs to be one of the best players in the league; being one of the best at his position may not matter much if his position has been marginalized.

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

But I also don’t appreciate the insinuation that I’m a “stick my head in the sand” fan because I don’t participate in your misery. You do you and I’ll do me.
