He's a perfect fit as backup pg and he's the veteran this team needs at age 38.
He’s not a pg, Tyler Johnson is better. This team isn’t lacking in veterans.

Why are you so interested in adding backup pg’s that are worse than our current backup pg?
he's actually a "point forward" and has better point guard skills than TJ. The oldest player on the team is baynes at 32. second oldest is rubio at 28.

and of course joe johnson wont be defending the other team's point guard.
The last time he played in the nba, he had a ts% under .500 and had a higher turnover rate than assist rate. He’s 15 years removed from being our backup pg. He’s nowhere close to being that player anymore.

I like JJ, and good on Joe if he's found a second wind to the end of his career playing Big3, but signing him to the Suns would be fool's gold. The level of play isn't even close to the NBA. It's like watching a guy play well in the preseason or D-League and deciding he'll be a star.

He wouldn’t make subs in the first or third quarter so barns would rarely see more than 20 minutes a game despite the fact that he was super efficient. As soon as Gentry took over, LB started to go off.

I’m wondering how Ayton's family is doing in the Bahamas with the massive hurricane. I’m hoping he was able to get them out of there before it hit.

I don’t think there is much left of the Bahamas. One of my favorite scuba places. I went on a trip there several years ago during the year they had multiple hurricanes and had to cut the trip short. The diving sucked because everything was churned up and no visibility. The queen palms had all their fronds ripped off of them. They gave us a credit for the next year and it was perfect. I can’t imagine living on a small island in hurricane alley.

Some of the photos and videos people have been sharing are insane. People's houses flooding on the *second* floor. Devastation. Generally speaking it seems like the 21st century will not be kind to those living on islands or low-elevation coastal property.

Yep. Blasts Booker for not playing for Team USA and then 17 minutes after blasting Booker on Twitter, Tatum gets injured and he freaks out on Twitter. OMG! Tatum hurt! Lol. The irony.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

That’s pretty damn hilarious.
