Well, that's that.
With the ascendancy of Stix, Frank is fairly much toast for the season.

Remaining question: what's up with Abdel Nader (not that he's a key roster consideration)?
Forget about Sarver--keep your eyes on the prize.

Mysterious knee injury again like last year. He’s kinda become a mix of Oubre and Warren for us

Based on current 21/22 NBA Season stats - if we gave Ayton 100 hook shots, Booker 100 pull-up threes & Paul 100 middies inside the circle around the FT line - who would end up with the most points?

The answer is Book - but just 2 points separates the three after 300 shots.

Booker’s pull-up 3 is currently a 40.2% shot, or good for 120.6 points generated per 100 shots. CP3’s middy from his favourite spot on the floor is next - a 59.8% shot so far this season - generating 119.6 points in this test. Then comes DA. At 59.3%, Ayton’s hook trails the other Suns stars by the slimmest of margins with 118.6 points.
From the David Nash newsletter…cool stat and a very promising one. Those are very good numbers
My wish list: Nic Batum, Eric Gordon, Larry Nance Jr, Robert Covington, PJ Washington

Too bad about Kaminsky and Nader. Both seem to have long haul injuries. But luckily we have done new big man depth to help us weather this stretch. Seems like Kaminsky in particular may just not play again this season.

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

They must have gone quick, I ordered one right before I posted the tweet. Sold out by the time you did I guess

Rejuvenation pills? I don't know.

He’ll probably be bought out. I’m not sure he has much left.

Gonna try not to be super pissed about this one as I haven't even peeped reports about severity but I always comment on how it always seems that Monty takes a while to put in the bench guys.

The good news is he accompanied the team to Toronto and if you look at practice pics from today, he looks like he was an active participant.

Flex was all over the Cam injury. Saw some on social kind of calling Monty out on it. Wasn't smart for Monty to keep Cam in there but nothing he needs to be called out and dragged over. I doubt he'll make the same mistake again.

Shamet's out of protocols but Wainright's in now and Jackson didn't travel to Toronto but is still on the team.
