Well obviously as it's Cam I will comment but it's been a concern for me in general now for a while

We would be up double digits, the other team would wave the white flag making their subs and our starters will still stay in to like around 1:00 minute or so left.

That is one thing that has puzzled me about Monty. He does seem to leave starters / important players in the game until way late even if we're up by 15+. Not sure why. Maybe he's been burned a few times by having scrubs out there and giving away leads. But he seems to go too far with it, especially with guys like Chris Paul who need to be preserved for the playoffs.

Can't wait to get Shamet back. I've missed his inconsistent stroke and lack of contributing anything else. He's Devin Booker-lite-lite-lite.
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

And I've missed the constant complaints about him.

I still can't believe he got paid before he played a single game for us. Like it would have hurt our bargaining power and he would have demanded too much or something after a few games played with this team. I want to root for him, but I feel like Craig, for example, gave us a much more all-around game and was a better fit. I'll keep considering it a swing and miss until he proves otherwise.

I'll add that I'm also disappointed in Cam Payne. He's turned into a tunnel vision reckless missile that ignores his teammates and has one thing in mind when he has the ball and that's attacking the rim at all costs. Lately it's resulted in a turnover or a bad miss at the rim.

This is all eye test, of course. I'm sure plenty here will throw some numbers at me about +/- or %'s that refute my complaints, and that's fair.

I think the rest of the NBA just know he’s going to drive most of the time and are ready for it… he needs to develop his other options

Better PPG on far less efficiency. How do the minutes per game compare?

I'm now catching up on my timeline which obviously has lots of Suns info/opinions. All I'm seeing is the Mascot stuff and people really hating on Book, throwing shade and bringing back up the Double team thing from the pickup game.

Wow
Many really don't seem to like yung fella that's y I get so annoyed when he has those types of games that give those people lots to talk about

Either way, all this chatter just means we're good n relevant so Haters will always appear

Obviously Book has now seen how much talk there's been about last night and surprise surprise he's being a troll himself now and having a laugh
Smh :twisted:

Hmmm, would you do Smith for Nesmith or Langford?

I don't see how that better prepares them for the playoffs.

The suns? It may not, I’m honestly not that familiar with them. I liked Nesmith as a prospect because he could shoot. I don’t think either have faired all that well in the nba. Just think we could use some wing depth and thinking they may be better than Nader. Perhaps not though.

Right. It's a lateral move for the Suns. I don't foresee Neismith or Langford getting real playoff minutes if the roster is healthy. Might as well keep Jalen Smith.
