Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I prefer a guy who can put the ball on the floor, so someone like Millsap doesn't interest me.

On the other hand, this roster needs some rebounding and he'd definitely help with that.

Re: USA Basketball Tokyo Olympics

It's pretty clear Team USA needs to stop settling for 3's. Just because it's an open shot doesn't make it a good shot.

No coincidence the Spanish lead evaporated once guys started going hard to the rim.

Re: USA Basketball Tokyo Olympics

Booker's been a mixed bag so far. Attacking and moving the ball well, but having a hard time finishing. Also lost his man on D for back-cuts a few times. Partially his fault, but that's also more likely to happen when their defensive strategy is to switch everything like it has been for most of the...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

THT would absolutely be great for the Suns bench, but the more I think about it, James Jones might be trying to Jedi mind trick the Lakers. THT has value, but he hasn't really had a role on the Lakers since LeBron arrived. So getting them to overpay to keep him hurts their ability to sign other guys...

I think I could hit some of these three pointers Team USA is missing in the first half.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

The Heat get so much credit for overpaying old guys. Tucker is Andre Igoudala part deux.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I find Bill Simmons increasingly annoying as days go by, but I'll always agree with him on this; there's no reason to lock yourself into your roster in July/August.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

So far, so good. I don't want any of these guys at the amount they're being given. The Theis contract is pretty good. I guess we have differing opinions on Theis. He's a role playing Center who doesn't shoot. He probably needs to be the worst starter on the team if his team is trying to contend. Th...

Hey, he's an Olympian. He's got to be great, right?
Suns just doubled their number of Olympians. It's good timing to see him match up against two Spanish old guys tonight.

Flex mentioned THT also a little while ago.

We still need another playable big. I don't see McGee as the first big off the bench or capable of guarding faster 4s.
THT would be interesting. Undeniably talented but makes a lot of boneheaded mistakes. Saucy will love him.

At least he's better than Frank Kaminsky.

He also has a YouTube channel that's not completely terrible.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I think Markkanen will be sought after by teams who miss out on their primary targets.

Feels like it's bound to be a head scratcher for a team that's trying to save face, a la the Pistons and their 43 Power Forwards they signed last summer.

Re: USA Basketball Tokyo Olympics

Quarterfinal draw has put Team USA up against Spain. I know I just said they look old, and they are, but they're still going to be a tough out due to their size advantage and defensive discipline. These teams played each other in the gold medal game in 2008 and 2012, and in the semifinal in 2016. I ...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

When he's not injured, Bagley has been poor defensively and erratic offensively. He also doesn't really fit the Suns system and hasn't showed much willingness to play a role that benefits team basketball, but that latter part could easily be somewhat attributed to playing for the Kings. I agree with...

Re: USA Basketball Tokyo Olympics

Slovenia is a very resilient team. It's pretty incredible to see how much Doncic raises the level of everyone else. When he went out of the game in the second quarter due to foul trouble, Slovenia was still pretty composed and it looked like they weren't afraid of playing without him. I think this S...

Re: USA Basketball Tokyo Olympics

I'm looking forward to Spain v. Slovenia matchup this evening. Really interested to see how a veteran team defends Doncic as the two other teams in their group (Argentina, Japan) aren't medal contenders. This game is also important for quarterfinal matchups, as the Team USA essentially locked themse...
