Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

Can we push the draft to a couple of hours later than it’s currently scheduled for?

Re: Around the League: Preseason

Lowe podcast threw out a Westbrook for Kyrie theoretical trade. I hate the Lakers. Having said that, it would be high drama to reunite Kyrie with LeBron and Westbrook with Harden and Durant. Of course it will never happen, but it's fun to talk about.

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

I’ll be happy to get the results here. Don’t check email so much these days anyway. So we are at 12 teams redraft now with a 14 deep roster right?

Be great if we could match people’s names here to their team names. Some are easy, others are a bit of a guessing game.

I’m platypus beaks.

Re: Weekly News Threads

Thanks for everything you do Carey, and hope your situation gets better soon.

I have not made threads in the past and the timezone thing makes it slightly difficult for me, but I'm sure we'll all pitch in to keep the tradition going!

Re: Tesla

Also with respect to liabilities, there usually is a contract between the OEM and the supplier to ensure that the supplier covers a certain percentage of the warranty costs incurred, but as you said Indy, the loss of reputation/perception from public is hard to measure.

Re: Tesla

I get what you guys are saying, but I think it just makes more financial sense to outsource, because the supplier can focus on the one specific product and not get bogged down by bureaucracies that run rampant in big companies. If GM were to build all its own components, then pretty much every part ...

Re: Tesla

So sorry to hear of your woes ‘dack. I can maybe explain why you got some of those run arounds but it won’t help you. Unfortunately I think traditional OEMs are getting together to march to the elephant graveyard together. The new brands like Tesla offer a much better experience but then their produ...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

I would be for an auction draft. Actually might be easier to run keepers with auction drafts that have minimal impact with turnover as you could just increase the price for each kept player by a fixed amount (say $5) and a new manager can just come in and look through the roster and know what to dec...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

All good. Would be really great if we can push that draft time back by a couple of hours for time zone considerations.

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

So ... do we have a clear next direction? If we are going to try to make 12, we'll need to start recruiting as the season starts in about a week... I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I've been maneuvering for 2 years to build up my team for this season based on dynasty rules so it would be great...

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

I personally prefer to open it up to a broader audience but to keep the keeper format. Dunno what the rest of the league thinks. I can try to recruit some other non suns fans if we are open to that.

Thank you shel! For whatever reason any time I like a post I get kicked out of my login and have to re-enter my credentials so I haven’t been doing that. I think Ayton is being goofy.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think Cam and Duncan are different types of shooters. Cam is much more of a spot up shooter with the occasional screen play run for him whereas Duncan is used primarily to space the floor and is constantly in motion. He’s more in the Korver/Redick vein while Cam is a bit more traditional as a shoo...

There was a Tesla fire in Shanghai with the charging programming, and I'm pretty sure that figures into why they are recommending a lower state of charge (SOC) limit for you guys. The chip shortage is very very real. Battery technology is nowhere near perfect... maybe don't park electric cars inside...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I think Simmons will be a tremendous fit with the Blazers. Which is why I'm rooting against that trade. KAT will be a good fit with Simmons, but the Wolves would probably have to give up Russell and Beasley and some picks to make that happen, and then suddenly they'd be super thin in the back court ...
