Perk saying he could get 3 blocks a night told me a lot. He can barely get 1.

Yeah, but they only count 1 out of every three.

I have seen them miss some of his blocks, but it’s probably more like 1 out of every 3 games. That would give him 20 more blocks and just barely push him over 1 a game.

That must be so exhausting.

Great clip from Kendrick Perkins. Now I feel even more confident in my opinion of Ayton as a max contract player.

I’ve seen 2 in one game multiple times. It’s not a rare occurrence.

I encourage everybody to watch the red flag video in this tweet.

And not just from his mouth. We heard our coach have to plead with him to play hard IN THE FINALS.

What I find funny about people thinking I’m an Ayton fan over a Suns fan is that if that were the case, I would want the Suns to trade Ayton yesterday.

If we trade Ayton and then the suns face Ayton’s new team in the playoffs, would you root for the suns? I’m assuming yes, you’ve been a suns fan your whole life, but that’s how I’d determine whether you were a bigger suns fan or Ayton fan. For the record, I’m not questioning your suns fandom. I trust you are and have always been a suns fan.

That’s the only thing you get from those quotes? Did you hear where Ayton said he wanted a bigger role in the offense and was shot down? He wanted to do more. Monte and CP3 limit him. His numbers went down with CP3, not up. That says something.

The only thing dumb about Ayton’s game is that he isn’t NBA level with the skills he wants to play at. He actively resents the role he is most effective at. His outside shot is slow and awkward. He mentions getting to the line but is horrible at it. He can barely put the ball on the deck unless he has an open lane or shit defender on him.

In the B.C. years, Ayton averaged 15.34 FGA/36 and scored 19.73/36 on 56.95%FG.

In the W.C. years, Ayton averaged 13.0 FGA/36 and scored 18.75/36 on 63.0%FG.

So yeah, his took 2 less shots per 36 minutes, and scored 1 less point per 36. But he was WAY more efficient with CP--a 6% increase in FG% is ridiculous.


Also, his Oboards went down by 0.5/36--If he even kept that at the same as before Paul, it should have given him the same scoring average as before.

It is so weird to me when people make this a DA vs CP3 thing.
