The Suns home crowd would have erupted if Ayton had done that to Beverly.

I think it knocked another screw loose.
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!

Yeah, can you imagine if that had reinjured Paul's stinger?!

No matter who wins? Nah. It's the Suns. The Bucks already won their ring.

We need someone on the roster like that. Probably not Monty's style, but Baynes is worth a contract next season just for that kind play. He wouldn't have let that Beverley shit fly all series.
I'd love to have Baynes back if he would take a reasonable contract. I missed his toughness and 3-point shooting this year.
Me too..he's the one piece we are missing just been great that Ayton has been so reliable and uninjured.

If a corgi predicted it's true!
I just checked the TikTok and there's no Finals prediction?! It also called Bucks in 6 vs. the Hawks. :P

I hate that word. I grew up in Phoenix. It was called a dust storms all my life until we went to Iraq. They call dust storms there Haboobs I guess. Now they call dust storms Haboobs in Phoenix. I call it a dust storm. Dust storms are impressive in the day. At night there isn’t much to see, just wind and dirt in your mouth.

pretty sure the word "haboob" has existed a lot longer in this world than "dust storm." Dust storm sounds blah. Haboob sounds magical.

Especially now that it's associated with Cam Payne. Tom Leander had been pushing the nickname hard for Payne.

The Haboob name might have existed longer in Iraq than the name Dust Storm in Phoenix but, the name Dust Storm has been used in Phoenix a lot longer than the name Haboob in Phoenix.

Maybe. It is definitely more prevalent today. But it has been in the English language for over 150 years, after it moved over from Arabic. I remember hearing it before we invaded Iraq because I was in elementary school and every word with boob in it was funny.
