Re: Steve Nash out for season

i want to echo what carey said in the other thread... nash is my favorite sun, with KJ a close second. i just wanted to add that, if he is out for the season from picking up his own bags, i hope that whatever injuries he's suffered over this long nba career does not impact his quality of life going ...

Re: Around the League: October

julius randle hasn't demonstrated anything to justify two first rounders... yes ennis is redundant at the moment, but let's not decide already that he's not talented and needs to be dumped.

Re: Steve Nash out for season

that bumps him back up to favorite sun status... i know i'm being ultra cynical here, but he's essentially been a trojan horse for us. yehhh for nash.

Re: Around the League: October

i'm okay with tanking from a GM level... as some have said, it's more a business decision than a basketball decision. i am not okay with tanking from a coaching level, as in, "let's let ricky davis chuck 25 shots a game so we have a better shot at landing duncan next year, even if we have better off...

Re: 2014-15 regular season predictions

i know. what i meant by the ryan anderson comment was that, he seems to be a good floor spacer who will help either big man play down low, but unfortunately they won't be able to play all three at the same time. if he plays the 4 with either davis or asik at the 5, that reduces the defensive prowess...

Re: Game Day (Exhibition): Suns @ Rockets, Mon 10/13/14

Kanter is skilled on offense, Favors is skilled on defense. Kanter can hit from mid-range, score in te post, and has shown flashes of double-figure rebounding ability. He can be a plodder at times, and isn't too effective on the defensive end. Favors is an athlete. His offense is still a work in pr...

why must you guys relive misery in such fine detail! argh! those pick-dumping moves put me in basketball purgatory for basically 3 years, where i pretended no bad news about the suns could hurt me. i'm still not sure i'm fully recovered from it.

Re: Game Day (Exhibition): Suns @ Rockets, Mon 10/13/14

I would explore trades for Horford and Favors (if Gobert proves ready for prime time). If Utah moves anyone, it will be Kanter, not Favors. I do think Atlanta and Horford will eventually part ways. what's the scouting report on kanter and favors? i've been told that jefferson and millsap were moved...

Re: 2014-15 regular season predictions

The Suns may really struggle against New Orleans, if the Pelicans remain healthy. Omer Asik and Anthony Davis should have a field day against the Suns. i agree... that's gonna be as good a defensive front line as any in the league. what do you think them playing together will do to their effectiven...

Goodwin and Len are waaaaaay to young to give up on. Nearly every player who comes into the league has some learning to do. i agree with this. and also agree with R_W that if anyone i'm willing to give up ennis, not because he's not a good player but because we have so much talent at the 1 spot tha...

I think Eric Bledsoe is going to have a big year. I'm a little worried about Goran because I'm not a huge fan of guys playing year round and I think Goran may wear down. Eric, though seems to have a lot to prove and Grant Hill said that the training staff says he's in the best shape hes ever been i...
