After last night's game this might not be the best time to share this, but if anyone is thinking of picking up Suns gear from the team shop, you can use this fifteen percent off code:

Uh-oh
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

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

I think they're going to put the season on hold soon.

I think they would have to be suspending several games a week before that happens, and probably the ones scheduled on national tv. But it is on the edge.

Everything can spread so quickly tho. Maybe a 7-10 day break, teams stay in market and can practice and get tested. Also a good excuse for some rest after the quick turnaround and get FAs in for a week with teams getting hit with injuries.

I wish we would just take the "give vaccines to anyone that wants one" approach instead of the current rationing. It won't fix this right now, but we are already tens of millions of vaccines behind the rate needed to have everyone vaccinated by the end of summer.

I think they should just immediately vaccinate all pro athletes in sports with active seasons (NFL, NBA, etc.). It's only a few thousand doses. These are individuals who stand to be greatly harmed by the virus, since it can mess up their heart and lungs permanently. So much money and athletic performance is at stake. Careers could be changed for the worse.

At the very least, open it up to anyone over 75. I know we’ve been begging staff to come get vaccinated at my hospital because we have a lot of extra doses.

Yeah, talk about adding insult to injury.

They did that in AZ starting on Monday. My mom has her appointment for her first shot next week.

Just call your doc or what? My mother is in her late 80’s with COPD and was asking how to get it and I had no answer other than call her doctor.

Filled everything out. Must be due to my age and not being an essential worker but when I get to the part to select a date to schedule a vaccination, I tried everything up until 04/20 and it returned nothing available.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

same here. You are prioritized for dates based on how you answer the questions. If chose you were one of the folks in 1B they have dates/times, but I think they are a few weeks out. The cards stadium is supposedly operating 24/7.

He isn't in a single positive two-man line up. Neither is Paul (again, he has that 0.4). How interesting is it that Booker and Paul together is one of our worst two-man lineups and they have over 250 minutes together?

The Cams show up in 10 of our top 20 line ups, and only twice are they in a negative line up. higher ratio than anyone, by far. (although Saric does show up in only 2 and is positive for both)
