I know it's cheap after the last couple of games, but I think we can win 12-15 after the allstar break. This team has been .500ish whenever they have been healthy. There will still be ups and downs, but I think they will still be about a .500 team as long as everyone suits up. A little below if they have normal amounts of injuries. a little above if they are especially healthy.
thoughts a week later?

We see what the team is really made of.

It hasn't been good. I will be very surprised if we break 30 wins this year.

The last two bad home losses put a huge damper on our win total.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. (Note: Requires full 82 game season.)

The last two losses put a damper on any momentum they had and should be very embarrassing for them.

I heard that Booker, Ayton, and Rubio all skipped media availability after the last game and sneaked out. Not a great sign.

What does it signify other than embarrassment and the inability to face questions after said embarrassment?

It really does feel like losing Oubre took the wind out of our sails. We had our problems before, but those last 2 games feel like the players realized the playoffs were out of reach and they’re play dropped accordingly.

They were probably embarrassed and humiliated and wanted no part of being asked over and over why they sucked so bad. Nothing worse than getting beat by the worst team in the NBA who was starting Chriss and Bender, your cast offs.

There is a lack of accountability when you sneak out, especially as the 3 leaders on the team. Leaders don't duck out of tough questions. You stand up, explain where you fucked up, and move on. That is like leadership 101.

They are 3-4 in the last 7. That's .500ish. 15 look like a stretch now, but I don't think 12 wins post all star is out of the question.

I'm hoping they went and did some soul searching..
