But how many of those came on ESPN, with his left hand, on a Tuesday after a Rockets game?

I think Ayton has a higher ceiling as a player if he gets proper development. But Doncic is by far the more skilled player imo especially skilled in the areas needed to succeed in this league today.

I wanted Doncic because the Suns are NOT good at developing players (something i think most of you would agree with) so I would rather have had the already skilled, more NBA ready player in Doncic.

The fact that our HC already has a great relationship with Luka and he played for the Igor was just a bonus.

Agree. You bring in Igor and you handicap him right out the gate without a playmaker and distributor. Our FO is a joke. "Let's hire Igor because he's a great offensive minded coach but let's not give him an engine to make any of it run."
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. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

We could use some of this right about now:

We could use the best player of all time? Sure. Which team couldn't?

Not the player, the attitude. Besides, he's pretty old right now. Still probably more productive than Anderson.

Jordan also pushed all his teammates to be better. So much so that Pippen had to play peacemaker between Jordan and the rest of the Bulls. This is a large part of what I would call "veteran leadership." Something the Suns are sorely lacking.

I am Doncic guy, but I even I hate this post. I hate this craze to manufacture random stats to exaggerate how good a player is. People use to do that crap to somehow lump Eric Bledsoe in with LeBron James.

Lets be honest, he'd only get about 8 shots per game here.

Re: Jokic

I had never heard of the phrase until Roy Hibbert said it during a press conference some years back.

Now that Derrick Rose looks like a star again, it's time to trade Warren for Teague.

I'm pretty sure Sarver wants to trade Warren and the Milwaukee first for Rose.

Let's be honest. 55-year old Michael Jordan would probably be our 5th best player right now.

Wolves are one of a few teams in the league whose 3rd string PG is better than our starter (BOS, WAS, TOR, BKN are some others).

Between the completely unimaginative design and the "LOSS UNS" design fail, we have the worst of the bunch here, IMO.

OKC's are heinous, too.

The worst two are definitely ours. The only question is which one is the worst: the LOSSUNS or the burning outhouse?

While the burning outhouse decision was questionable, it does represent the team well.
