What they don't tell you is how far the numbers are down from the peak, which I believe was under Stern.

Re: Game Day: Mavericks (17-12) @ Suns (14-14), Mon 12/25/23

Getting hammered by Dallas on Christmas and there being a million videos posted about how Donkic had the second best game of any player in the history of basketball and completely single-handedly destroyed the Suns has to be a kick in the crotch for the Suns organization that could have drafted him...

I couldn’t even watch the whole game. Found something better to do, like wash my hair. And I shave my head.
And not necessarily in that order.

Bol was signed because IT wanted him
I'm convinced that's true based on his friendship with Ishbia and IT's ridiculous comments about Bol's skills on TV.

Re: NBA In-Season Tournament

And in terms of not being a wuss who lost the vast majority of the times he made it to the Finals, MJ is also still the GOAT. I hate that criticism. MJ was just on better teams. When he retired and the Bulls replaced him with Pete Myers, they didn’t do a lot worse. They didn’t win a championship, b...

Re: All Things Ayton

Only in Ayton's and JeremyG's mind is Ayton viewed as the second coming of Giannis; if he only had the right teammates/coach. Reality has him with the basketball desire of Luther Wright.

Wonder where he will fit in with the Pantheon of Blazers centers: Walton, Bowie, and Oden.

Last years team had two starters: one whose motor was about burned out and another whose motor was equivalent to a VW bus.

Makes a difference when everyone goes full speed.

Re: All Things Ayton

Lol, he could be a 20 ppg scorer without changing anything about his game. He was literally an 18 ppg scorer. Just 3 more minutes per game would do it. :lol: OK, 25 ppg and 15 boards per game. Play through contact and boxing out would accomplish both but not our problem anymore. That hasn’t been do...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

I'm genuinely curious about the tendency of most Suns fans to feel like they have to be in favor of, defend, or eventually come around to, basically every move the front office makes. Is there a reason why this is the case? Because it doesn’t help to incessantly whine about what’s been done and is ...

Re: All Things Ayton

I think Ayton's issue a lot of times is he wants to spend time thinking about what he's going to do instead of going with instinct, muscle memory, reflex, or whatever you want to call it. 99.99% of players in the NBA would have dunked the ball in the first video without a thought. Ayton does fine wi...

JeremyG,

Who is responsible for Ayton's lack of development in the following areas:

Dribbling?
General ball handling?
Positioning?
Footwork?

Re: All Things Ayton

A fan on another forum posted this which I think sums up my thoughts about Ayton's Suns tenure and departure quite well: It will be interesting to watch games where I no longer complain about effort. Will there be games where somewhat limited players don’t excel? Sure. But I don’t expect to questio...

Re: All Things Ayton

There is a subset of NBA players whose playing performance always increases during a contract year. Too bad they can't always be signed to single year contracts, because another team will take the risk and offer more.

Abstain.
This. We don't know what the Suns know regarding Ayton's mental state.
Maybe they thought Ayton was channeling Luther Wright.
