That was during Vlade's reign, no?

Re: Around the League: Week 2 10/25-10/31

I watched the Nets loss to the Hornets and I don't think the refs were unnecessarily harsh on Harden. He's playing poorly right now because he's overweight and lacks explosion. Last year he was able to still be productive because he could create contact and get foul calls, but now that the calls are...

Re: Robert Sarver Report

I think Ballmer did strip Rivers of his president title and took personnel decisions away from him, but I think that's universally seen as the right move. He brought in the logo as an advisor I believe?

Re: Game Day: Nuggets (0-0) @ Suns (0-0), Wed 10/20/21

I think Monty may have to decide how much he leans on his bench early on. He probably should've stuck with Shamet and CamJ last night at times over Book and Jae. Book's going to need some games to work himself back up to speed and I think Jae is a guy we should be pulling back a bit on regardless b...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Sure. Then you sign him and trade him. Obviously chemistry is important. But if chemistry is the reason we let go of a talent like Ayton for free then as I said I’ll have serious trust issues for this team and front office.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

If Jones doesn't match a contract just because Ayton asked him not to, then I will no longer trust in this organization. But until that happens, I'm with Indy... Jones hasn't done anything so egregious over the past few years that would have me *that* pessimistic. Let's see what happens.

Re: All Things Ayton

As much as I think we need to show some objectivity towards Sarver and Jones in terms of not giving Ayton the max, let's also not go too far the other direction... I love Holmes and was super pissed that we let him go and picked up Kaminsky while he signed a 2 year 10 mil offer with the Kings... but...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

What does that mean, force his way out? He'll need to sign some form of a contract, and he can't sign one with another team that we can't match, so whatever pouting he does, still falls under one of those signing scenarios. Also, if DA's psyche is so fragile that this would make him want to leave, I...

It sucks that the Ayton's contract extension wasn't worked out, but let's not make every single post about it maybe? It's not like anybody on this board had a hand in the decision not to extend him. Let's enjoy the game we are watching...

Man, there's so much anger on this topic... and I thought I was the one that was depressed and psychologically damaged by this team. Instead of talking about how DA isn't a max player, maybe we should all just root for him to channel his frustration and whatever wisdom is imparted by the coaches and...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think we all need to take a slight step back in this whole discussion. DA didn't get extended and some frustration was voiced, and we are all reacting. But before we discuss who to swap DA for, there's still a very significant chance that this whole thing just blows over when the winning starts an...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

But they also considered Blake a Giannis stopper. I am still not over this dead horse, sorry. But the refs call the games in a certain way and a team like the Nets have so many things over the Suns that they can expect favoritism, whereas we can't. Also, Saric's defense was mostly against second str...

Re: Suns Sign Bridges to Extension

Not to hijack the Mikal celebration thread again but I have very high hopes for Cam. He's the perfect modern role player and I hope we can lock him down to a reasonable extension ASAP. Before he becomes a starter and gets real exposure and commands Mikal money. I know that's not being fair to him, b...

Also, I hope I didn't come off as being antagonistic towards unions. There's a reason why they exist, but like with all other large entities, they eventually take on a life of their own which may end up serving a purpose different from their original design.
