Suns Media Day 2022 - Monday, September 26th

Post by Superbone »

We are only two weeks away from Suns Media Day. And oh boy, it could be interesting. I am very curious how the Suns PR is going to handle it. Are the Suns players going to be bombarded with questions about Sarver? Maybe they'll start with a press conference where they address it and not allow these questions during media day? Could they enforce that?

Anyway, here is where we can discuss it and post videos, pictures, and comments from media day.

Media day is saved! I'm really looking forward to the opening press conference now.

I'm still hoping for some positive developments on the player personnel front in between now and then as well.

You got some TLC anyway.

Welp, I hope we work on getting a good replacement. Not a great way to go out. Also, tough to get good value on a trade when the other side knows your hand is forced.

It's a contract year for him and he wants to start. I'd just wait it out to see if another playoff/contending team has an injury or is looking to make a push midseason. No need to trade him this week just to trade him.

The flipside to this is that multiple teams now need to put their best foot forward if they want to be the one to get him.

I think what really pissed him off was the near-deal we had with Sacramento. Not being a starter or getting an extension seem like things he could get past. Nearly being banished to the Kings is another level.

Good points by both of you. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

I could talk myself in to Randle. Don't love a lot about it, though.

I like Randle but not sure I'd like him on this team.

I’d say ball handler/creator regardless of position. Though the more size the better.

Yes please. I’ve wanted Randle for years now. That would be a steal.

Randle needs to dominate the ball and doesn’t do much on defense so I’m not that excited about him being here. He shot 40% from 3 that one all NBA year and then nosedived last year. If he was a theoretical floor spacer I’d be more inclined to try, but I would be shocked if he could get back to those levels.

This. Outside of the Robert Sarver news, this feels like a pretty disastrous offseason.
