I remember that guy from when he represented all the teams. (Was it after the draft?) Looks like the Suns hired him to do this schedule release video. Pretty good marketing move.

Suns tied with OKC for the hardest schedule in the league according to Vegas. Mil by virtue of being in the East among other factors has the easiest.
Go Suns!

I wouldn't put much stock in that, as the Suns were by far the worst team in the west last year and the west is much better than the east. You can see the discrepancy in the difference between PHX and Chicago in strength of schedule.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Some Ayton highlights from JCraw's summer league up in Seattle. Basically a glorified YMCA game but he looks a little leaner to me and is showing off some nice post moves. Also hit a 3, tho his form was a little flat. I know a few people want to see him develop a face up/dribble drive game but I want him emulating Ewing and Duncan. He's got that physique and touch to be that kind of player. Turnaround baseline jumpers ala Ewing, faceup 14-16 footers and drop steps ala Timmy.





A different angle on that 3

Does he look leaner, though? Am i the only one peeping some man-boobs?

Every other team gets to play against us and we don’t! No fair!
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

I think it's average opponents win expectancy. We don't get to play a lot of for sure crap teams and when we do it's not often.

Right. It's a flawed metric made for ESPN talking heads to fill 8 minutes of TV time.

You're the only one. Not seeing man boobs.
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

I was studying those titties like the Zapruder film.

Pretty sure I'm seeing some serious jiggle at the 10 second mark after his turnaround. His shirt is untucked for a reason.

That would harsh my buzz if he came in out of shape.

I'm not seeing any jiggle or man boobs. At worst he looks like he's in the same shape as last season. And no one playing has their jersey tucked in. It would be obvious if he were carrying extra weight, ala Chriss.

I’m real curious what our offer to Rozier was

That was needed because Phoenix apparently had an enticing offer out to Rozier, who was a free agent for the Boston Celtics. Before the free agency period opened, Rozier expected to take a one-year deal with the Knicks, but early that morning, the Suns put an offer on the table that trumped New York’s, he said.

That was when, Rozier said, Michael Jordan, the Hornets’ principal owner, intervened. “Mike was overseas, and I can just picture him probably having a cigar in his mouth and the words he told Mitch [Kupchak], the GM, was like: ‘Get him over here. Do what you need to do to get him over here.'”

Rozier was sold. “I’d be a fool if I was to go anywhere else or turn down that,” he said. “I look at it as just a team, organization believing in me. Knowing that I want to prove myself in this league and giving me that chance is bigger than anything and [their willingness] to pay me a right amount of money, it was just big and the guy that was behind all that was Michael Jordan. It’s still surreal to me.”
Knicks probably offered a 1 year deal in the 15-17mil range but only a 1 year deal for cap flexibility. We could've offered a 3 or 4 year deal similar to Charlotte's but MJ came up with a bit more and structured it as a declining deal so Rozier gets 19.9 this upcoming season. Plus Rozier seemed taken with MJ.

I'd bet what we offered to Ricky or slightly below that. What a disaster that would have been.
