Is it weird that I would be more excited about a defensive or playmaking highlight reel?

Re: Acts of domestic terrorism

Trump supporters do not have a problem with racism. They are enablers and supporters of bigotry. They all should be shunned and shamed. Im not a Trump supporter (incredibly far from it), but I dislike this rhetoric. I think the current political climate can really only be diffused by opening up lin...

Indy/Cap/Andy S will always be my own personal .net holy trinity.
If I had to build my all-time phxsuns.net starting lineup with only $15, I'd include these three in it.
Mine:

Robot ($3)
P219 ($2)
Wormwood ($4)
Swingy ($1)
Spanishninja ($5)
No Ladmo?

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Rubio is going to hurt himself in the World Cup. That was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that he was playing. Maybe for Euros it's good to have them play in the summer so they don't get fat. Im pretty sure Americans wrote the book on obesity Actually, he is Canadian: https://ww...

Re: Diamondbacks start well in April

I was shocked that Greinke was traded -- not by his loss,but more the fact that the Snakes got prospects in return as well as a good deal in getting rid of a majority of his contract. While the loss of Greinke's talent is palpable, Arizona picked up a solid innings-eater, middle of the rotation pit...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

Rick Rubio's teams have averaged ~33 wins per season. If you only include his time in Minnesota, he averaged 28.8 wins per season. The wolves were significantly better in the two seasons after he left. Betting on the under for 30 games is a tight bet, but reasonable given the evidence. 2011–12 NBA ...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Something key that is missing in this analyses is that the Suns have not played a meaningful game after the all-star break in years--I would guess that TJ would be more likely to play more games that had playoff implications.

Re: Diamondbacks start well in April

I was surprised they traded Greinke--I get the motivation behind the move, but was it worth it to trade a fan favorite, who really wasn't showing a lot of signs of slowing down?

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

No thoughts on that article and the interview audio from Jones in it? I didnt respond to the quote, because I didn't want to sound like I was just continuing to beat a dead horse. It sounds as though Jones prioritizes fit over talent, which is close to the exact opposite approach of his predecessor...

We signed another end-of-the-bench point guard? Does that take up one of our 15 roster spots?

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Caught the presser which was actually encouraging to me. Whether or not you agree with the moves, there's a plan in place to add certain kinds of players that fit together to play a certain way. I've said for years that we always had a bunch of talent that never fit together, which Jones mentioned ...
