The only thing that's keeping me from being upset at the azcentral paywall, is that I don't think their writers are all that great.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

I’m glad Greg Moore is behind a paywall. His takes are awful.

I like the Athletic coverage. Gina and Bob Young are worth the paywall.

Agreed however my mom told me there was a good article in the paper today about the Suns may be the best thing going in the Valley right now. It is written by a writer I had never heard of before. Anybody have the link?

I found it but it’s behind the paywall:

Phoenix Suns are Arizona’s best story.

Hooray! The season is upon us. The weekly threads are most welcome back, carey. Thank you so much for creating them and posting the great articles. The Bright Side "The essential questions of the 2019-20 Suns season" article says we'll go 35-47. That sounds about right to me.

Baynes is going to be the most popular player on the team among fans by Thanksgiving.

Apparently, Booker's dad was the biggest influence this summer on Devin's improved defense this season.

Simmons gets way too much NBA credit for writing a long winded book of his favorite players.
