Zach Lowe ranks all 30 teams in terms of how fun they are to watch on League Pass. (The Suns are #24. Lowe shows his pro-Knicks bias a bit here.)

If you read the article, it's only the first (bottom) half. Pelicans is my guess for #1.

Oh, that makes sense. And a big NOPE to reading ESPN articles.

Yeah, even more impressive was that it was in 11 possessions, which is nuts.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Crazy range. Just brings it across half court, “Oh, you’re not going to guard me at 30 feet? Okay...” Swish. Lather, rinse. Repeat.

He did this in the NCAA tournament last year too. Not exactly, but he went off for 40, hitting a bunch of pull up 3’s, almost single handedly beating one of those top teams. Might have been Virginia.

He would have been nice with that 32nd pick.

Yes, I believe several of us were interested in him at that range. He's short & people were wondering if he has actual PG skills but with the way today's game is played and all these point forwards out there it doesn't matter too much if he's paired with the right group.
Go Suns!

I absolutely wanted him with that pick but I am a Purdue homer. I do think he's the real deal though. His lack of size won't even matter. He did the same thing against Virginia, hitting threes from miles away. Had 9 and ended with 40. This was more impressive because he did it in so little time. Him getting hot like that is one of the greatest things in basketball to watch. He is the steal of the draft.

Pisses me off that the Suns never even considered talking to him, let alone working him out and drafting him.

i don't expect Chriss to amount to much (certainly not more than if we just stood pat and kept Brogdon) but what Green is saying is mostly true.

Starting Chriss 7 games into his career was a mistake. I think something we often forget with these young guys is they need to develop physically, but also mentally, emotionally, etc. Chriss still needed to grow up when he got here.

I mostly agree with Draymond here as well. Chriss was not set up to succeed by the organization. He was an 18 year old kid when we drafted him. If you’re gonna draft kids, you need the support and developmental systems in place to help them succeed.

I always liked Chriss, I wanted to draft him and I thought he was quite a bit better basketball player than Bender was here. Which still isn’t saying much, but I’m hoping he finds success with the Warriors.

I don't think anyone is high on the Suns player development. But Chriss is not exactly a victim, he's on his fourth team already. Why didn't he make it in Houston? They preferred granpa Nene over him.

For sure, Chriss has to share some blame. I didn’t really follow his situation in Houston or Cleveland, so I can’t really comment much on that.
