My goodness that is a revealing stat…Ayton is incredible at the non rim paint shots, but Bridges getting 3X as many rim shots is pretty crazy.

Problem is it hard caps us and then it gets tricky to build out the rest of the roster.
Part of that is Ayton missed a quarter of the season with injuries. But like you said that doesn't make up for 3x as many.

He was so perfect for us and was sitting right there…I’m not sure I’ll ever get over passing on him.

Also the Lakers will gladly pay Kyrie that…Kyrie/LeBron/AD would be phenomenal when all are on the court. Might not happen much, but if it happens at the right time, watch out.
Kyrie and James are BFF. Should workout just great!
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

The Nets are not going to take our garbage for KD..I don’t think there’s really any way we keep Bridges in a KD trade. I’d expect Ayton or whoever we get for Ayton plus picks also going to Brooklyn.
That's a lot for an aging KD. I would be hesitant to even trade Bridges (plus filler) for KD straight up. He'll be almost 35 by the time the playoffs start plus chances aren't great that he'll be able to stay healthy.

KD is one of the 5 best players in the world…ya he’s 34 but he’s not really shown any signs of slowing. Bridges is one of my favorite suns players of all time, but I wouldn’t hesitate to send him out for KD

The problem isn't that we made a poor draft choice. That happens to everyone. The problem is we missed on the most obvious choice that would have been perfect for us.







I think that might have happened a couple times recently.

I think at least 90% of us wanted us to draft him when our pick came up and he was still available.

Not only that, it was like a forgone conclusion it was happening.

I was so thrilled for the 6 seconds after Washington took Avdija and before I saw the Gambo Jalen Smith tweet.

The drama in BKN about Kyrie is certainly interesting. I think getting KD here is a huge longshot, but if things are falling apart over there, you never know. I don't think KD is too old or likely to break down; he has at least 2-3 good years left I think.

Any y’all interested? Not going to lie, I wouldn’t mind bringing him back depending on what we do this offseason. Depending if we get rid crowder or maybe make bigger move, like trading for KD, where we lose our bench depth.

We won’t have the money to sign him if he’s opting out of 7.4 million…he also was giving Dallas pointers on how to beat us. Maybe that’s where he’s going.

I really don't see a scenario where Kyrie Irving is playing for the Nets next season. Maybe if the owner fired Marks and Nash or something. :lol:

The kind of stuff being reported is exactly what happens when a star is on their way out of town.

Do you have any idea how disrespectful that is to Steve Nash?

Hahaha. PJ is an awesome guy, fan favorite, and 100% a garbage man on any team. We need fucking scoring in the worst way.
