It makes no sense, but Boris Diaw is my second favorite. Dude was just so talented and special in ‘05-06

05-06 Boris is one of my favorite players too. He got more aggressive as that season went on and had a very strong playoffs.
All of this. I've never been so proud of Saucey.

I get people hated when Boris passed up layups to kick it out to 3-point shooters, but I honestly couldn't care less. His post game was so smooth, his passing was fantastic, and he was so good versatile. Just on a pure basketball level, his play that year was some of the best I have ever seen from a Suns player since 1993. It was such a joy to watch.

(and it's what makes the rest of his tenure with the Suns so heartbreaking)
Lol

Barkley?
Are you asking if Barkley is why I referenced 1993 or if Barkley's performance was better?
A collective 'yes' to that one.
The 1993 Suns team just won my heart; it wasn't specifically because of Barkley.

Barkley certainly was dominant at various points throughout his Suns tenure. I did enjoy watching him play (except for him shooting 3s). Of course I would rate his play above Boris; Barkley's play was HOF level.

I'll take a shot at starting the weekly news thread since I've found some unusually interesting articles.
Do you think you could post the weekly threads for a while? Got a lot of shit going on right now. Mom lost her job & think we're going to have to sell our house. This covid situation stinks for so many people.

We're on week 16.
Go Suns!

Really sorry to hear that, Carey. Hang in there.
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! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!
