Bold prediction. I mean, yeah, they are reduced right now but still have championship pedigree. I hope you’re right. That would be a very nice win.

I hope you’re right. Just touched down in Vegas. I’ll be putting my bet on the Suns over on wins today.
Oh s***.
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

That first 10 game stretch for us is brutal. It would be a miracle if we were .500 after that. Probably more like 3 or 4 wins.

I feel really, really optimistic about this team this year. I'm sure they'll kill my optimism about 10 games in but I'm enjoying the high hope for now.
Even optimistically, it would be surprising for them to win more than 3 games of their first 10.

Kings
@ Denver
Clips
Jazz
@ Warriors
@ Memphis
76ers
Heat
Brooklyn
Lakers

On paper, only Memphis seems like a pretty good chance at a win. I assume they surprise one team in there, too. I am hoping for 4-5 wins, but expecting 3.
They’ll beat the Kings, Grizz, Heat, Nets and Lakers

5-5
Keep living your best life my man.

Booker and Rubio working on their chemistry:

https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/ ... 895797002/
rubio should be the primary ball handler 55-60% of the time with booker on the court with him (point booker gets 40-45%), but in the last 3 minutes of close games, point booker takes over and rubio becomes the off ball spot up shooter (I think he'll be good at this)

:D Haven’t placed the bet yet. Going to compare my options tomorrow. If you pay me $100 right now, I might be willing to forego the bet. Hit me up soon. Or else.

You know it's going to be a special year when even Barkley says we will be "decent."

The Suns are bound to improve sometime, it might as well be now. The 76ers were terrible for years. They only won 10 games 5 years ago, then 28, 52 and 51. Some are picking them to win the east this year.

I think we have a good, strong core that can compete with anyone now.

Highest margin of victory in the league, and it's not even close. We are killing opponents by an average of 29ppg.
