I'm pretty confident that the guy who got caught covering up PEDs isn't skipping the gym.

He's got weird nipples.

Also, that's Trier in the last photo.

Glad to see he's looking svelte.

For all of the silly quotes he's given us, I still believe that he's a hard worker who genuinely wants to be great.

He had some conditioning issues during his rookie season, but that's not unusual. I don't doubt his commitment to fitness, but I still have questions about his basketball IQ and the only way for him to really improve is to play in NBA games.

Snark aside, I don't worry about his work ethic either.

Nah, there have been recent pics of him working out at Inspire courts and he's looking to be in good shape.
Those diuretics work well! ;)

Looks like suns will be playing meaningful ball for the first time in 10 years. Even if we get our ass kicked, I’m really looking forward to it. We have enough front half of the rotation talent to beat anyone. We also have the lack of discipline and depth to get blown out by anyone.

True & True

I hope with a full roster the second is less likely.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Tough to say....we're finally healthy but the team's hardly played together at full strength so there will still be an adjustment period and we won't have a ton of time to get on the same page. Then again, we could be the kind of team no one wants to face with our younger legs and size up front. A team with nothing to lose is dangerous.

The players that matter have had enough time to play together. I’m not worried about Frank Kaminsky as I really don’t want to see him on the court unless there’s an injury or foul trouble anyway

I pulled this from an article.

https://www.theringer.com/nba/2020/5/29 ... oronavirus
As June 1 approaches, the timeline for a return is becoming increasingly precarious. NBPA executive director Michele Roberts recently called for the league to give the players concrete information about a possible return. Time is short for multiple reasons. If the 22-team scenario gets approved by a three-fourths majority of the owners on Thursday and the July 31 date to resume is solidified, the NBA will likely be hoping to fit in a handful of regular-season games, a play-in, and a full postseason to determine a title winner before the NFL presumably kicks off its season on September 10. That’s a 41-day window. In a normal year, the playoffs usually stretch over two months.
Assuming this plan is approved by the owners, I'm interested to hear how they're planning to conduct the "6 regular season" games. I imagine they'll have to create a new schedule since they can't use the existing regular season schedule with 8 teams not participating. Then I want to know how they're making an equitable schedule.

Of course it would benefit the teams in the 17-22 range to play fewer games against the elite teams, but I'm predicting there will be teams and fans who feel like they're at a disadvantage. Imagine a scenario where Memphis has to play the Clippers, Nuggets and Raptors, but the Pelicans play the Heat, Sixers and Jazz as their "best" three opponents. Am I over thinking this?

If the Suns are counting on Frank Kaminsky at this point they might as well not even go to Orlando.

July 31st seems a long way away right now, especially compared to the societal events of the day recently.

I think every team will go into this modified end-of-season event equally motivated. However, I'm interested to see what happens with the Jazz. They seem like one team that is really close to falling apart in the next couple of months.
