Are we really going to miss the play-in because Giannis was suspended by the league?
Go Suns!

He probably wasn’t going to play regardless

We missed the playoffs because of Ayton's 25 game suspension.

The play-in game was significantly affected by Budenholzer essentially throwing the game.

I’m not sure why anyone would be mad at the bucks. Why would they give a shit about any of this? They have nothing to gain and everything to lose if they lose a major player.

Sucks. Milwaukee hasn't been resting people all year. Strange they'd do it now.
Go Suns!

The Bucks didn't rest anyone, they just didn't care about the game and their effort displayed that.

They waxed teams all year with Giannis on the bench. They could have won if they wanted to. I understand that this game meant nothing to them, I know my bitterness towards them is irrational, but I’m leaning into it, I don’t care. Go Raptors and Go Clippers if they meet in the finals. And I hope Giannis leaves...and comes to Phoenix in 2021, haha

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Honestly, I don’t think Giannis coming to Phoenix isn’t that crazy of an idea now. Booker and Greek freak?! Fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

I’m calling for it now. Bucks get upset by Raptors again, Giannis says no to an extension, tells Milwaukee he’s gonna test free agency next season...enter Phoenix who wins the lottery and we offer 2020 #1 pick, 2022 unprotected pick, Ayton, Oubre, and Ty Jerome(just because, haha) for Giannis.

My ideal hope would be to sign him in free agency...then trade Rubio and Ayton for Dame. 8-)

Here's video of Jones Jr getting injured. Not gruesome like some of the NBA leg injury videos. He just runs into a big setting a screen and bonks his head against the big man's body. I wouldn't even have known it was an injury otherwise; just looked like a hard screen and bump. Hope he will be okay.

I’ve always been scared for DJJ. He’s got such a skinny body and then he flies through the air like he does. Seems like a recipe for disaster. Although this was much simpler and is just a body mass issue.
