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

Yeah. They have their issues for sure. You expect most TV crews to show some favoritism but the nets crew is far from being egregious. Can’t believe I’m saying this but I also like the Lakers crew. Remember liking the Knicks one as well, and the Hornets one is well known for its excitability. Used t...

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

Gentry has always been a solid offensive coach but can't create credible defense... They are missing both Barnes and Holmes so I guess I'd give him a pass for the last few games. At least they did embarrass the Lakers. Also read that he got a pay bump to be interim head coach and I wonder if Ranadiv...

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

I thought Ayton played fine. He probably played a B- game, but I don't know if he should be panned for the numbers he put up. The flow of the game favored the guards and wings and he simply didn't get that many touches. He did make a couple of mistakes, but I think overall he played a decent game wi...

Good to see Ayton get a few touches but dunno why we haven’t subbed out all the starters yet.

I notice we aren’t crashing the offensive boards at all.

Nice hustle from Payne on that out of bounds steal.

You shouldn’t put down clowns like that.
Apologies to all the hard working clowns out there. Was just trying to go for the (poorly executed) rhyme.

This might be a week late, but I'm just going through the Dunker Spot podcast episode on the Suns, and it's a great listen.

Re: Game Day: Suns (14-3) @ Cavaliers (9-9), Wed 11/24/21

Now I'm in the Javale bandwagon! Veteran play by McGee. You've got to know the rules and take advantage of them. Smart play and X gets the square. It was an absolutely terrible call and they really screwed the Cavs with it. They need to change the rule then. Otherwise it's just a smart play. I agre...

Loved what I saw of Cam J today. Very aggressive. Didn't really want to see Crowder replace him the last few minutes.

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

I am still scared of Davis unlike you guys, but I do agree that he doesn’t have that alpha mentality so I’m only scared of him when he’s clearly hot. He still has that rare blend of size and athleticism that makes him special. If he were more aggressive that would make him scarier.

Re: Game Day: Suns (13-3) @ Spurs (4-11), Mon 11/22/21

Yeah I was surprised to see it out of Gobert too but he had two straight possessions where he took a hard dribble to the basket followed by a hard and decisive spin to get an easy layup.

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

Watching a closely contested non-Suns game and seeing how the last 2 minutes of game time takes 15 minutes of real time, I can see how NBA action is sometimes not worth the effort for casual fans. But go Knicks (today only)!

Re: Game Day: Suns (13-3) @ Spurs (4-11), Mon 11/22/21

We don't really have information to the inner workings of the day to day of the team, let alone how a player's maturity level might change. It's fun to speculate, but it's not like any perspective can be proven true or false. It's much easier to enjoy what Ayton has become and hope for more. I'm ver...

Re: Game Day: Suns (13-3) @ Spurs (4-11), Mon 11/22/21

And Ayton is getting older, has a family and that tends to mature people. He was a little kid when he got here mentally. Now he’s a man. An observation. I like Tom Leander. He seems like a great guy but, I am definitely not a fan of Tom Leander as a play by play guy for the Suns in the past. He was...
