If I could freeze the standings right now I would
The sad thing is, that'd be about as friendly a playoff bracket as we could ever get, and even there we'd lose in the 2nd round. The West is just brutal this year.

I’m not really scared of the Thunder. They could beat us…anyone could…but I’d never call that a definite loss. I don’t think it’s a bad matchup for us.

I respect their talent, but I think the Suns can outscore and bully the Thunder in a playoff series.

SGA going nuclear or JDub and Chet performing ahead of their trajectory would be the pathway for the Thunder to win the series.

It would be massively disappointing for a healthy Suns team to lose to them.

The Suns are being judged too harshly based on their performance early in the season when they didn't have all of the Big <=3 playing. As someone else stated, the Suns with the Big <=3 in the lineup are playing at a 60-win pace. If they were doing that all season long, everyone would be talking about them as favorites. We will know more how they stack up to these top teams in the near future now that the schedule is getting tougher. Post all-star-break is the time to peak; not October to January.

It's good to see that his team mates believe in him. He had that sweet move last night to the hoop that was pretty impressive.

If I could freeze the standings right now I would

1. Clippers
2. Thunder
3. Wolves
4. Nuggets
5. Kings
6. Suns

7. Pels
8. Mavs
9. Lakers
10. Jazz

We’d get Wolves in round 1 and Thunder in round 2. Nuggets-Clips in round 2.
I just don't want to play the clips. I'll fuck with any other team

Great quotes from Nurkic. I didn't think he'd be as impactful as he's been so far, and I'm so happy the Suns have him instead of that self aggrandizing delusional bum.

What does this mean?

Anybody have any idea what he's thinking or how he thinks he should be used? Seemed like a perfect time for the media to ask but maybe they knew he wouldn't answer.

Watch the clip, he said not having any plays run for him.

He’s already done more complaining about his role than Ayton ever did publicly (which was almost zero).

OK. Sorry, bub. Not weird at all. Glad you're accepting of your role.
