Re: Allegations of racism and misogyny within the Phoenix Suns: Inside Robert Sarver's 17-year tenure as owner

Phoenix is not a small-market city, and the Suns have brand new facilities. Maybe a new owner would try to some relocation crap decades in the future, but I have a hard time believing we'd find ourselves in a Clay Bennett/Sonics situation.

Sean Elliott was totally fine during the Suns/Spurs game this year. I remember commenting that he might be toning it down this year since the Spurs suck.

The Heat TV guys are also ridiculous homers.

Oh man, the Cavs TV analyst is so bad that I had to look up his name. I couldn’t understand a word he said anytime he got slightly excited, and most of his “analysis” was stuff like, “Wow, he jumps so high! That’s how he can dunk the ball!”

Re: Around the League: Week 6 (11/22 - 11/28)

Fair enough. I didn’t think much about the context. I just had the game on in the background while doing some work and took note of their miserable performance.

The Lakers TV guys are the worst. :lol:

Malik Monk will shoot 1-6 but they make the one shot he hits sound like he’s shooting fireballs out of his ass.

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-3) @ Nets (14-5), Saturday 11/27/21

I liked the Brooklyn broadcast crew. Very respectful and effusive in their praise. Though I disagreed with their comment on several plays in the 4th. My girlfriend gave me a weird look when I cursed at the TV after the Nets TV guy said Cam Payne nearly travelled. As if James Harden doesn't nearly t...

Re: Around the League: Week 6 (11/22 - 11/28)

I heard someone suggest that on a podcast recently. Atkinson is a good coach, but a lot of their problems are above the role of a head coach. I think their GM is probably fine, but don't think he has a ton of credibility among players across the league. I think he'd have a hard time attracting a hig...

The Kings are being boat raced by the Grizzlies without Ja Morant. Will Alvin Gentry make it to January?

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-3) @ Nets (14-5), Saturday 11/27/21

That's a good thread. It's OK to worry about draining the clock with 4+ minutes left in the game, but I also believe they have data on that stuff and aren't terribly concerned with getting a perfect look as long as they milk 20 seconds off of the clock. A few of those shots were definitely worse loo...

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-3) @ Nets (14-5), Saturday 11/27/21

I watched pretty much the whole game after missing about the first 8 minutes. This was just an ass kicking, and it started on the defensive end with the Suns really starting to show some consistency with generating deflections and poking the ball away from ballhandlers. The scoring drought in the se...

Re: Game Day: Suns (16-3) @ Nets (14-5), Saturday 11/27/21

I don’t think underestimating him is the right way to put it - more like not overestimating him. He’s a great piece of our puzzle, so much so that I’m coming around to the idea that he might be a better fit for us than KAT right now, certainly at his current contract value. Actually forget the cont...

Re: Game Day: Suns (15-3) @ Knicks (10-8), Friday 26/11/21

I'm not there yet because it hasn't really shown to be a huge detriment.

They've won 15 in a row, and sure, there are always areas to improve, but whatever they're doing right now seems to be getting the job done and then some.

Re: Game Day: Suns (15-3) @ Knicks (10-8), Friday 26/11/21

Booker with 27 FGA and 0 FTA. How does that happen? He definitely could've gotten a whistle a couple of times. Not sure if you have a gripe with those numbers or just pointing out the randomness. It bothered me for a second after checking the box score, then I realized 32 points on 52% shooting wit...

Re: Game Day: Suns (15-3) @ Knicks (10-8), Friday 26/11/21

Obi Toppin looks like he needs some work. Or maybe he just had a bad night ... He's just not very good. He'll occasionally get hot, but it's not shown to be sustainable nor has there been an indication that he's a smart player. If Jalen Smith had the same playing opportunities, he'd probably look a...

Re: Game Day: Suns (15-3) @ Knicks (10-8), Friday 26/11/21

13 assists and 15 turnovers is the main reason the Knicks stink right now. A great performance all around for the Suns as this one never really felt all that close of a game.

Pretty much every team in the league has stopped trying to get offensive rebounds besides true Centers who're already under the rim.

Someone must've left a door open because neither team can hit a shot.

Re: Game Day: Suns (15-3) @ Knicks (10-8), Friday 26/11/21

Pretty comfortable first quarter for the Suns. Outside of Fournier starting 3/3 from deep, the Knicks haven't really done much from their offensive sets. The Knicks just don't have anyone to settle them down and routinely get good shots, so the Suns should be fine if they maintain the defensive inte...
