I’m glad he said he wants Tyson to tell him how to defend the post and not show him how to defend the post.

Because it’s definitely been at least 2-3 years since Chandler’s done any defending.

I would have been worried had he said, "I want him to show me how to rotate on defense." :lol:

Yes, that seems to fit the Suns defensive scheme the past few seasons.

As Adam Silver made waves by announcing at Tuesday's board of governors meetings in Las Vegas that the NBA is ready to make changes to its age limit, teams have been told privately by league officials not to expect that to actually happen prior to the 2022 NBA draft.
That Miami pick is not going to be in the double down draft

Is it just me or does Ayton look a little bit like a chunkster here.

I'm not worried about Ayton's weight. He does have a little bit of a fuller body and facial shape, and it's possible that he would benefit from shedding a few pounds and being lighter and more agile. But he's only been an NBA player for a few weeks, and he has hardly had much time to work with our training staff. I'll give him time to get into whatever he and the team thinks is the best shape for the season this fall.

Yeah, I don't think Ayton is chunky. He lost about 10 lbs from last year, so I am slightly worried that he's not holding onto his muscle. I would hope that he's in great shape and put some more muscle on, possibly adding 20 lbs of muscle now that he's seen that the NBA is way more physical. I want to see him impose his will on other teams and players physically where other guys are a bit intimidated by him.

Yeah, I can't tell if there is something going on, but it looks like he has a belly. I admit I could be totally wrong and off base, and honestly I hope I'm completely wrong. I did like the fade way, cross overs and shooting though. Maybe he brings something unexpected this year, in a positive way. Granted, it looks like he's playing in a 6 ft and under league with a mix of high school kids.
