I'd prefer losing by 30 than winning with Rivers contributing.

Michael Carter-Williams got traded to the Bulls and is going to be waived.

Anyone wanna give him a try at PG ?
Yep, that's right. Uncle Gene is back !

Why exactly did the Suns sign busted Isaiah Canaan instead of Shabazz Napier this summer?

Why not? Can we get the walking triple double rookie MCW?

What happened to him? He used to be so promising. He couldn't shoot, but he was like Ben Simmons of 4-5 years ago, I thought.

He put up numbers on a really bad philly team as a rookie, but I don’t think he was ever seen as close to the level of Ben Simmons.

Hell, Philly didn't think much of him even at the time.

We should have done a lot of things. One of them could have easily been signing Tony Parker for cheap to bring Okobo and Along. He’s still good for 20 minutes of production and sounds like a huge part of the Hornets locker room.

We could've had TP instead of Ariza. People thought he was washed.

But then again, maybe we would've thought we were better than we were. Maybe McD would still be in charge? I think a guy like TP would've been huge not only for Okobo but also Ayton.

40/10/4 from Wiggins tonight with 18 free throw attempts. I guess he’s happy thibs is gone. Got all the talent in the world but he almost never plays like this. Averaged 1.9 ft attempts a game in December.

I think EVERYONE is happier when Thibs is gone. Players, GMs, media, ball boys/girls...

Their new head coach Saunders is the 32-year-old son of Flip Saunders. He's younger than over 40 players currently playing in the league. The first play he called was one of his dad's. His players were all really happy for him and showered him with water after the game.

JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

It's amazing. I used to be all for hiring Thibs but I agree with Indy. That video of Saunders' son is awesome btw.
Go Suns!

Sweet story about the younger Saunders. Man, Thibs really became persona non grata there. It's a shame; he would be a great hire as a defensive assistant, but I don't think he would ever accept a "demotion" like that any more.

To borrow from specialsauce, I’d prefer losing by 30 than winning with Tony Parker contributing. :P

What makes you hate him? That he killed us so many times, or something else? Just curious.
