Imagine trying to play right now after what just happened. But maybe this is a great way to get the bad taste out of your system.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

For the 2020-21 season, Holmes’ played under a $5 million-dollar contract. That number should not inflate much when his team strikes up a new one, still making him a budget-friendly acquisition. https://valleyofthesuns.com/2021/07/22/phoenix-suns-richaun-holmes-free-agency-target/ If this is really...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

This article mentions Blake and Bullock as two former CP teammates who could be on the list. Not sure what CP and Blake's relationship is like but he crossed my mind as a cheap vet option at the 4/5. Wouldn't help much defensively but perfect fit for the offense, could play some 4 next to DA or 5 i...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

We're not trading for Wood a year after he signed with the Rockets and I don't think he fits the "culture". This article kicks around the idea of Nance Jr, tho I'm not sure if the Cavs are looking to move him and/or if we have the assets to send out. I looked up Nance Jr. and I love that ...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Christian Wood has a reputation for not being a great teammate, and I'm still not sure he'd maintain the same production in a team oriented system like the Suns. FF and Shel -- interesting. I did not realize that he had the rep of being a bad teammate. I did read this, though, which seems to suppor...

I got excited enough to look some stuff up and Wood may indeed be on the trading block. But the price will be high: https://spacecityscoop.com/2021/07/04/the-case-for-and-against-trading-christian-wood/ A cursory glance at some popular hypothetical trade proposals might have Raphael Stone salivating...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Edit: Jalen Smith, if he still has any value, should be thrown into the mix for a Christian Wood trade since Smith projects as a Wood if he can develop. The alternative, of course, is if Jalen shows massive growth in summer league.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Is there a long, athletic 4 that shoots 3s, creates shots for himself and others, and can defend 1-5 that we can add? I’d try to do that, haha Christian Wood was my 1st thought. Miles Turner? Dario on JC would make the deal work and maybe add our pick to sweeten it. Christian Wood replacing Jae Cro...

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

The Suns went further than anyone on planet earth predicted at the start of the season. They won two games in the Finals. That’s better than any other Suns team. Just wanted to mention that it ties both the 76 and 93 teams. Or maybe it was 2 home wins. Well then they matched the best two other team...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

We can make tweaks around the central fact that everything depends on DeAndre Ayton. Will he top out as a slightly better DeAndre Jordan? Or will he continue growing into what he could be, a combination of Ewing's power and Garnett's ability and ability to defend the perimeter? Everything else will ...

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

Milwaukee was just a bad matchup for them. You didn't want Ayton to have to try to guard Giannis the entire game, but that's what it basically came down to because of need. Anybody else they tried didn't work and Ayton couldn't do much with him either. How much of this was Giannis (and I do respect...

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

The thing I look forward to seeing is how DA responds to this. For the most part of his admittedly young career, he has been just happy to be there and kinda aloof. He has taken great strides there during this run, and more importantly, I see the frustration/sadness/anger on his face for really the...

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

Can the Suns make it back next year? I doubt it, this looks too much like the Orlando Magic that one year and players like Nick Anderson being demoralized. But I would love to see them proving me wrong. The hardest thing to do in professional sports is rebound from a loss in the championship game/s...

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

We stopped playing Suns basketball after game 3. It's just that. Milwaukee had a lot to do with it though. They came back with four good efforts after losing the first two, and the Suns' effort-level wasn't there in game three and that opened the door for a couple of losses that they could have won...

I'm happy for the Bucks players. There isn't anyone on their roster that I dislike.

Bucks fans, on the other hand, they can fuck off.
We Suns fans earned it after glorifying Suns in 4 guy.

I suspect that Booker and Ayton will earn a chip in the twilight of their careers, maybe it will take them ten years to make it back.

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

Weaknesses on the Suns are glaring: - Booker is a spectacular #2 on a title team but not quite a #1 yet - Ayton remains an incomplete player that needs to learn how to score in the post against the likes of Bobby Portis. Confidence will come with time and repetitions. - Is CP3 too old to make a titl...

There is no way that CP3's injuries didn't play a critical role in the Suns blowing Game 5. He is going to need surgery on both hands I would guess.
