Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I am not sure we have a ton of minutes at the 4 for anybody that comes in anyway, given that we are still committed to Crowder and Cam Johnson needs minutes. So I would hope for our incoming help to be someone a little bigger than both of those guys, someone who can fit into our offensive system whi...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Am I the only one that wants to see Smith play some real minutes for this team before putting him in a package for an expiring veteran?

Would be great if he upped his own percentage to those levels… that will really take his stardom another level.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I'd like to see Ayton learn how to play offense from the post. If that elusive PF becomes available, I guess we'll need to send out Saric to match salary if it's trade, and if it's not, I guess Saric might be out for the season anyway and we could still add another player. Not that Gasol would happe...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I'd love to get Marc on the Suns, if nothing else, to hone Ayton's post game in practice... Oh well.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Ced who, Ceballos? What happened with him? Who did he wrong?

I wish there was some way we could get Isaac from the Magic.

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

Also, I would personally vote against resetting. In my other dynasty league, I've had turnover in the managers ranks literally every year until this year... if we keep resetting, we might as well go back to a re-draft league, imho.

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

So we are down to 9 right now? That's rough... if we are going outside the board, I have a buddy who wants to play. I can try to drag him to this board for at least fantasy communications, but might be harder to turn him into a Suns fan outright...

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

Ok I think I've finally licked my wounds to the point where I can think about basketball again... maybe we can talk about the fantasy league a bit? Can we get back to 12 teams, and clarify that pre-draft trade rule a bit?

Re: GAME DAY, NBA FINALS EDITION — GAME 4 — PHOENIX SUNS @ MILWAUKEE BUCKS WEDNESDAY, 7/14/2021

Gotta clean up the turnovers. Liked the Craig Crowder Cam lineup to spell Ayton. The role players were asked to make some decisions on the fly where they could stand to be a bit less selfish and more aggressive seeking their shots. Overall I’m quite happy with this first half.

Re: GAME DAY, NBA FINALS EDITION — GAME 4 — PHOENIX SUNS @ MILWAUKEE BUCKS WEDNESDAY, 7/14/2021

DA is getting burned playing off Giannis and daring him to shoot. It's allowing Giannis to get downhill and drive full speed at the rim. Giannis is initiating the contact, but DA is getting the foul. Maybe DA starts crowding him to take away the drive. Book is carrying us offensively as the Bucks a...

I could hear Giannis slap Booker from half way around the globe.
Are you suggesting ex-DPOYs don’t know how to play defense?

Seriously tho, how many fouls does Giannis have in the series? Two offensive fouls and anything else?

The second foul on Ayton was garbage. Ayton was sliding his feet and Giannis put his shoulder into Ayton's chest.
I thought both were pretty questionable
Giannis is the new Shaq so how can anyone be stronger than him? Clearly Ayton pushed Giannis. No way he actually just hit a wall.

Can’t believe Jackson and JVG said there was clear contact. It’s a contact sport. Contact alone doesn’t justify foul calling. That was trash.

I like what’s happening so far. Ayton needs to be more forceful tho. Booker had a hot start. He needs to continue being aggressive.

This isn't meant to be a slight toward Luis Scola, but Argentina can't go far if they're starting him and counting on him to be an impact player.

He's 41 years old. :shock:
Wouldn't mind giving him an offer as an assistant coach tho to teach Ayton and Stix about post footwork...

Re: Around the League: Week 14 3/22-3/28

I really think that's underselling the talent level and hard work that the other national teams have put together and put in, to say that because there's a higher individual talent level that this team should just roll to the Gold.
