Re: Suns News: Week 24 3/25-3/31

I think the progress from the start of the season until now has been noticeable. Getting rid of some personnel from earlier in the year (Ariza, Canaan) helped but you can tell guys have picked up on his system and we've had stretches of some pretty good basketball. I care whether the guys are still ...

Re: Suns News: Week 24 3/25-3/31

I know anything is possible but do we really expect to see Igor fired? Is that actually a thing?

Nice buzzer beater but not the greatest in history.

Totally spaced on the game last night...here are some Bridges highlights if you click on the entire thread. Looked like he had his best game of the year.

Re: Game Day: Pistons (36-33) @ Suns (17-54), Thurs 3/21/19

Meh. I'd be more concerned if Booker were afraid to say something or worse, didn't care enough to say something. Someone mentioned Kobe doing or saying something like that and that's fine with me if Booker has that mentality. Overall, I haven't been so impressed with Melton. He hasn't wowed me with ...

Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

I hope whomever we hire works with Igor and gives him a honest chance rather than just hiring "his own guy" or putting together a roster opposite of the style Igor wants to play. A GM deserves to hire their own guy, but we can't keep firing coaches every year. There has to be an understanding that I...

Booker's reaching into his bag of tricks tonight. He's driving, shooting, posting, pulling up. 15pts in the 1st. Could be a big night?

Re: Game Day: Pistons (36-33) @ Suns (17-54), Thurs 3/21/19

We're looking good. A lot of ball movement, not as much of Booker just pounding the ball waiting to get doubled. Everyone's been involved, defense is still quick to the ball and the rotations look better.

Really sucks because he was such a bright spot. Think I remember him injuring and favoring it early in the NO game. Hope he's back next year with us fully healed.

Wondering if there's an agent play/obligation here. His agent has a nice roster of player including Giannis and Steph Curry. Clearly we're plotting for future FA signings....

I think Ayton has his sweet spots right now where he's comfortable. We just don't do a good enough job of getting him more opportunities.

Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

I think those guys are better/quicker at driving the ball so the defense gives more space to guard against penetration. Devin isn't a lightning quick guy and isn't even that great of a ball handler. And what's their respective 3PT% off the dribble vs catch and shoot? Devin's almost 40% catch and sho...

Re: Game Day: Bulls (19-52) @ Suns (17-54), Mon 3/18/19

and part is that Ayton isn't aggressive enough when he gets the ball and it isn't point blank range.
I've seen others say this and I don't find it to be true.

Re: Game Day: Bulls (19-52) @ Suns (17-54), Mon 3/18/19

I wish we would post Ayton up for easy touches the way the Bulls posted up RoLo to start the game. Ayton's gotta work harder to keep a guy from establishing that position. RoLo was just walking him down to the rim and posting. Another learning experience - hit 'em at the top of the key and make 'em ...

Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

I'm not concerned about Devin's jumper. He's handling the ball too much and shooting tough shots off the dribble or with the defense focused solely on him. Some of it is shot selection but when he's left open in catch and shoots, he's deadly. It's like when Joe Johnson hit near 48% from 3 when he wa...

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-53) @ Rockets (42-26), Fri 3/15/19

I'm genuinely excited about all of our young swings and the defense they've been playing at times. We have young, long, athletic guys who can switch and swarm and deflect and get out on the break. I think you're taking the Ryan approach here. In isolation, there is something to like about each of t...
