Teams don't typically lose like that at random.

Maybe they can cut it to 25 in the 3rd.

By the way, is there any word on Kawhi and what the injury actually is/how long he'll be out? If it is a broken jaw like some guessed, it has to be a couple months at least.

Just a laceration. Took eight stitches.

I'm not happy that GSW got him if he becomes really good, but thanks. I hope all players not on Phx or potentially play for my Suns suck, haha. A true homer.
I like for things to go right for opponents and for my team just to be better.
That would work too.

It has literally been decades since I last read this, but it was one of my fav books back then. I should re-read it.
Either of you mind telling the rest of us what book it is from? Princess Bride?
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!

Count of Monte Cristo. Never read it, but enjoyed the movie.

Saw the original and didn't care for it. I heard the newer one was a bit better. But it is a book with a lot of characters, and it is really hard to do in movie form. It is the ultimate "man wronged and does whatever it takes to plan untimely comeuppance for his enemies" story. Dumas wrote it really well and it just makes you keep turning the pages.

I usually hate the NBA TV broadcasts, but I think Jimmy Jackson does a good job. Not so much about the games being played, but about the league in general.

Do we still think Paul George sucks?
Nobody said he sucks. I said he isn't a best player on a championship team, and hasn't shown himself to be great when it matters. He is a great regular season player. But if you are building a playoff roster, he isn't a top 5 forward.

Buy newer one do you mean the almost 20 year old version with Caviezel and Pearce?
Go Suns!

Yeah. I think there was a really old one (like 30s/40s?) and an old one (maybe even a made-for-tv, not sure), then the most recent one. I call it recent because it was this century, and I don't want to call it old. :lol:

I also just did a google search and it looks like another might be moving into pre-pre-production.

One of my great memories as a kid was watching The Three Musketeers movie (1973) followed by The Four Musketeers (they couldn't fit it all into one movie) a year later.

If we’re not careful, the Kings are going to be there too.
