If we get a talented passing PG, suddenly Ayton is going to look like a real beast. Nobody threw the guy any passes all year, and he was left to figure out his own offense for himself. He played okay under those circumstances, but he can be so much more. Get the PG, and you unlock Ayton for free.
Nah. You can't put it all on the PG situation. He takes some blame as well. There were many times he did get the ball in the post but he'd immediately pass back out.
Thank you.

It kills me that you get #1 pick in one of the better drafts in years, and we're talking about needing to add another player to get any kind of real impact from that pick.

We should have drafted Doncic.

Prediction: Ayton will end up with a better career than Doncic.

It's not even about Doncic. It's about all the generational talent talk, walking around in a Suns jersey before even picked, the empty promises about turning it on and dominating, Ryan's asinine 1-on-none draft workout praise, the talking heads insisting it just had to be Ayton, blah blah blah.

And honestly, as much as I was/am a Doncic guy, I think Jaren Jackson Jr. is probably my favorite player from that draft.

Way too early. Let’s revisit in 5 years.

What judgment? I'm just talking about things that bothered me in year one compared to what actually happened on the court.

He seldom made an impact when out on the court this year. He has the tools but needs to figure out how to put it all together.

Exactly. Nobody said "bust" or anything like it. These are all just things that have already happened.

I am happy with the Ayton pick even though I wanted Doncic too. He obviously has skills, size and strength. He will be an All Star along with Booker if they ever start winning. His aggression knob is set at 50% most of the time. I remember a couple of games where he got angry and did sort of dominate. Am not worried about Ayton as long as he stays healthy.
