I hope the Suns are getting him a sports psychologist for all they have invested in him.

That's where I'm at. No need to jump off a cliff because of his comments. Though Ayton may never meet people's expectations on here, he WILL get better. He is still young.
Let's hope. I'm not optimistic about him getting much better.
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. I'd be dominAyton if the WNBA would let me in. - Ayton

He's on year 5 and doesn't do anything markedly better than he did as a rookie. He is what he is.

This. He's already a legend in his own mind.

Where's our resident Ayton apologists at to defend his boy?

Agreed... Having a difference of opinions is what makes this site great; as long as we keep it fun and in jest (which is my intentions in case it doesn't come across that way). Nothing wrong with having a favorite player... Even if it borders fatal attraction for him with Ayton :P j/k

I'm feeling pretty confident that he'll play by the end of next week.

Landry looked like he was playing 1-on-1 with contact and moving well. I wonder what's taking so long for him to progress to 5-on-5.

Sounds like both #1 picks in town share the same problem

At least Ayton seems like a nice guy, while Murray has always seemed like a dickhead.

This is true.

Kyler is unlikeable on the field and off the field

DA just seems like a kid that was forced to play basketball by his dad because of his size and really would prefer to play video games and read comic books

I wonder if there’s anyone in the Aussie league worth grabbing over TJ or Bazley now that their season is over.

I always thought the same about Robin Lopez.

Yeah except Lopez is mad about it and then projects on others. DA is more just like the sad nerd who listens

The Booker/Bad Bunny stuff is kinda funny but then apparently Booker had dinner with Jenna Ortega the other night. O.o

So right now the Clips are in 5th, so we'd face them in the 1st round. Thoughts on the matchup?

I don't love the matchup because of our history but it feels like they've lost some of that edge and intensity from a few years ago. Having a healthy Kawhi can offset that but he's such an unknown game to game. Westbrook can win or lose you a game...I just don't know. I just like our chances against anyone so long as we're (KD and Book mainly) healthy.
