Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Would we have to include Saric in a deal for Young? I don't see why the Spurs would want him, and I don't like the vibe of trading an injured player who worked hard and performed really well for us at times. If we could get away with just trading Smith and maybe a 2nd rounder, I'm more okay with th...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I think the discussion of vaccines is super interesting, but we should probably confine it to aspects that affect the Suns/NBA. If we want to give our opinions on the laws and mandates, we should probably do it in the Politics or General sections. I don't think anybody's stepped out of line in this ...

Re: World Politics

Should we talk about this story about Gen. / Chief of Staff Milley speaking to China? It sounds like during the transition, he met with their ambassador to reassure them we weren't planning any sort of attack. He feared that Trump was saying some inflammatory things that could lead to escalation. Wa...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I don't know what to make of Stix. My sense is he's probably a bust. If he were going to make it, he would have shown us more by now. So maybe the right thing to do is cut ties and include him in a trade to get a better piece like Thad Young. But I'm not hugely enamored by Young, so I'm not sure we'...

Re: NY Gov. Cuomo scandal

The GOP is no longer trying to actually grow their base so that they can win elections. They want to denounce, subvert, erode, and overturn elections. That's their pathway to power in 2022 and 2024. If the Democrats don't protect voting rights and tighten the ways that votes are counted and electora...

Re: Coronavirus

We haven't really talked much on here about Biden's COVID vaccine mandates. What do you folks think? Was it the right thing to do? Will it get struck down in court?

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I really like what the NFL did with vaccines. They basically told the teams that if their players aren't vaccinated and can't take the field due to quarantine protocols, they'll have to forfeit the game and cover all the costs associated with the lost revenue. That's prohibitively expensive, so basi...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Thad Young shot 26.7% from 3 last year, hmm. Most of his other numbers are pretty solid, though.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I think that's a fair price, assuming that Mikal keeps working on his game and improving. If he thinks he's made it and stops adding to his arsenal of moves and shots, that will end up being an overpay. I hope he's working on his shooting and ballhandling this offseason.

Re: NY Gov. Cuomo scandal

I didn't want to make a new thread for this, but, LOL, what a failure the Gavin Newsom CA governor recall was for the GOP. He got like 2/3 of the vote to remain as governor.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Sounds like the John Wall era in Houston is already nearing its end.



How exactly do you deal with a 2-year, $91 million contract without a huge buyout? What a mess.

I think we should pronounce "PHNX" like "finks." Or maybe "funks."
If PHNX is “funks,” how do you pronounce PHX?
"Fix."

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I like Millsap in general, but he's 36 years old and wasn't able to stay on the floor in this year's playoffs. I think he may be done in terms of being able to contribute on a contender.

First preseason game is a little over a month away. I wonder when media day 2021 and training camp start. Can't be far off.
Yeah, when will this interminable offseason be over with??
