Baynes and Rubio have some pretty good excuses.

They do. Is Croatia in the World Cup? What is Saric up to this summer?

Yeah, they're a little busy. Oubre was seen over there too.

I think they are out of it now, and I didn't see him on the roster anyway.

The general rule about Suns news is, if carey didn’t post it, it didn’t happen.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

Here’s a thought, and I’m not saying we’ll be better than the spurs, but based on players alone, which roster would you rather have?

Booker or Derozan?
Ayton or Aldridge?
Saric or Gay?
Rubio or Murray?
Bridges or White?
Oubre or Carroll?
Johnson or Mills?
Baynes or Poeltl?

It’s pretty even from a talent standpoint, especially if Ayton takes a leap.

Of course this is without considering coaching, chemistry, continuity, etc.

Adding a facilitating pg is like oiling a rusted lock. It can make a world of difference.

I thought this was interesting. Let me know what you think about some of the stats at the end of the article, about post-up possessions and paint touches.

"Our Suns are DEAD!!!"
Nate Duncan / Morten Jensen
Ben Goliver / Jake Madison
Bryan Toporek / John Karalis
Danny Leroux / Jonathan Feigen
Howard Beck / Dan Devine

“Ayton quietly put together one of the best debut seasons in NBA history for a big man, becoming one of just seven rookies to ever average at least 16 points and 10 rebounds per game on 57 percent true shooting. He also posted the highest field goal percentage ever (58.5 percent) among rookies averaging a double-double.

Ranking first in field goal percentage, double-doubles, rebounds and dunks among last year’s rookies, as well as second in win shares, fourth in scoring and blocks, eighth in steals and ninth in assists, Ayton became one of 12 rookies in the lottery era to post at least 15 points and 10 rebounds per game. Nine of the previous 11 won Rookie of the Year.”

People have talked about Ayton as if he was a bust. He was a bad azz. He definitely some weaknesses such as his defense and is a little soft around the basket offensively. He is a giant intimidating physical man. I think he has the tools to become great. Time will tell. He wasn’t a bust. Not even close. People just expected him to be Jesus or at least Moses.
