What's the ETA on that facility? I wonder when our guys will get to start practicing there.

Not sure, but I thought it was mid-summer, but probably be later. There is a lot to do, but it feels like the hard stuff has been finished.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Top 50 plays of the 2010s. This is fun.

They even found a Jackson-Len highlight!
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

Yep, even Archie Goodwin makes a couple appearances. He did hit a game winning, buzzer beater if you remember.

with 95 or so possessions per game, over 82 games, over 10 years, you had 78,000 to find your top 50. It is our top 0.06% plays of the decade. ;)

When I think top 0.06%, I think of Archie Goodwin.

I would guess that with over 75,000 plays to choose from, even a blind squirrel...

He is in there at least twice. Another time for an impressive dunk over Marc Gasol. Maybe you guys should actually watch it. It's really quite enjoyable.

I did. One thing I am reminded of is how glad I am that Leander doesn't call games anymore. Ugh.

I don't know if I prefer Mr. Nugenix though. Probably not.

It isn't close for me. I mean, I am not a fan of Kray's game call either, but for me Leander was just so damn grating I couldn't take it. Which sucks, because both of them seem like good guys that really know Suns basketball. It still makes me mad that they can't get a simulcast going, or at least as a second audio program. I know I can turn on the radio/stream it, but it doesn't work if you watch on delay (the only way I can for most games).

I guess my hope would be that Leander has learned from the criticism. In fact, I think he has. He covered for KRay a couple times and I don't remember being nearly as annoyed as in the past.

To be fair, "shazam," "swisheroo for two," "twine time," and other sayings would probably make me cringe if Leander said them. But out of the mouth of Al McCoy, I love them dearly.

Yeah, I grew up with them as a kid. They ARE Suns basketball to my ears. Somehow, and I could be wrong, it's just not the same thing. How about Ralph Lawler's "BINGO!"?

I wonder if people thought McCoy was douchey when he was 40 years younger.
