Ha ha! I can't think of a current player that I hate THAT bad. I even welcomed Mario Elie, for god's sake, here back in the day. Rose is probably at the top of the list though. I don't hate Paul.
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. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season!

Why do people hate Derrick Rose? I don’t particularly like him, but I just don’t really have any feelings about him.

Can you say, "gang rape"? I knew that you could.

I don't think I'd want to watch Harden in a Suns uniform.

Harden and Westbrook are two that come to mind for me. Both very talented, but I hate watching them and hate the way they play. The Morrii, I wouldn't want them here. Draymond Green is pretty high on my "no" list, too. You all know I watch the Warriors as my 2nd team since I live in the Bay Area, but I find his behavior pretty reprehensible and wouldn't want him as a Sun. A few others: Dwight Howard, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, Melo.

That is a long list. I could learn to cheer for all those except the Morii and Paul. I could never root for them to do well.

Rubio, Oubre, 2 unprotected firsts for Donovan Mitchell.

Did you guys see this? It's interesting.

Could the Suns see a change to a Paul, Booker, Kennard backcourt next yr? And still be able to resign Saric, Baynes, Carter and keep Payne?
Chris Paul is my least favorite player in the league. I could never cheer on a Suns team with him on it.
It's not about you, sauce. It's about the team. Does it make the team better? ;)
Lol
Well, you do have to consider the phxsuns.net team too. It wouldn't be as fun without Saucy.
:lol: If you think I’m annoying about Oubre.... you really won’t like the CP3 hate lolll

Rose is one, for the reasons mentioned.

I am not sure about other players except the morii.

I would not root for the team if Jason Kidd was the head coach.

What’s the most you’d all give up for Giannis if he demands a trade?

Booker’s going nowhere, and I don’t think the Bucks would accept a package without him.

You don’t think Ayton, Kelly and 3 firsts gets it done? Giannis is a year away from unrestricted free agency. If he tells them he’s leaving they can’t be that picky.

I would do that In a heartbeat. I’m sending anyone but Book and Bridges, and trying my hardest to keep Cam.

Take all the picks you want. I’d run Giannis at the 5.

Rubio
Book
Bridges
Johnson
Giannis

Knowing the Suns, we'd make that deal, and then he'd leave us after a year to go play for the Lakers.

Come on. This is Giannis. If you have a chance to pair him with Booker you do it. Worry about keeping him later.
