I wouldn't look to start him at this point but for some added depth off the bench? Absolutely. We're basically running a 7 man rotation right now. And I think he and Payne would be a nice combo too.

I really, really hope Oubre doesn’t come back at this point, would disrupt the chemistry and rotation. I love how focused and disciplined this team is on D and how they share the ball on O.

He does neither. And he was jumping around like a buffoon in the locker room celebrations. Really bad look from a player that is self absorbed with his own diva image. I don’t want to see him in a Suns Jersey ever again. Love our rotation right now- can tinker in offseason.
Fine if you think we're playing well and don't want Oubre's return to mess with that. But it's BS to criticize Oubre for "jumping around like a buffoon" during the locker room celebration. Booker hit a huge, gigantic game-winner, and Oubre was excited and genuinely happy for his teammate and friend, so he hooted and hollered and celebrated with him. If he had stood there quietly and not celebrated, you probably would have criticized him for not being a better teammate and not congratulating Booker enough. Dude can't do anything to please you. Even when he doesn't play and cheers on the team you find a way to criticize him.

I agree reintegrating Oubre would be tricky
The rest of your take as usual Sauce is crazy talk man. Don't know if u have League Pass but you could pull up any game and the dude has had the same energy for the whole bubble.
So your usual take that is all a show for the fans , what fans you think he putting on a show for or do you think he is cheering hard for the guys just to stand out in some of the hundreds of camera angles there smh lol

He’s running around, jumping doing 360s. Not playing is entirely political- he is as healthy as it gets. Instead he’s tweeting song lyrics daily like a 15 year old. If he can do 360s in a crowded celebration without fear, he can play.

Again- his defense, his offense, his entire persona was for show and flash. No fundamentals. Gambles, falls asleep often on defense, never makes the extra pass- why I think this is the best ball we’ve seen from this team. Playing sound, fundamental team ball with Book/Ayton and 3 really smart role players.

Yes, I really love how this team is playing right now. And I wish Oubre played especially seeing it’s clearly not health that is holding him back. But at this point I hope we’ve seen the last of him on the court for us.

You're unbelievable.

This is making your PJ Tucker hate seem rational.

It’s fine if you think that. There’s no disputing that we are playing our best ball of the season. And the things we are doing well are exactly Kelly’s weaknesses. It’s not a coincidence.

Don’t even get me started on PJ.

We need a poll. Who's the most irrational about an individual player on the team?

Mori - Rubio
Saucy - Oubre
SDC - Booker

(This is a joke, btw. Don't freak out. :lol:)
