When Ayton played 34 or more minutes last season:
20.7 ppg
11.5 rpg
Suns record: 9-1

And in the playoffs:
22.5 ppg
10.5 rpg
Suns record: 4-0
I think the context is missing here, which it often is in conversations about Ayton's stats.

When he gets that many minutes, is it that Monty just randomly decides to play him more? Or is it that Ayton's play during those games gives Monty a compelling reason to play him more? Conversely, when doesn't receive those minutes, again, is it Monty randomly saying "I don't want to play Ayton" or does Ayton's play on the court factor into why he isn't getting more minutes?

There isn't a vendetta against Ayton reaching his full potential from the Suns.
