Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think it'd be great to grab Kevin Love if he'd take a very low / minimum contract. He played poorly last year, but I wonder how much of that was motivation and situation. He also stunk on the Olympics, but I don't think that is a good situation for him, either. I think he could contribute next yea...

Re: Draft

This draft will probably be inconsequential for our future. FA is more important. 30% of the starters in the NBA Finals this year were 2nd round picks. We shouldn't discount it so quickly. That was exactly what we did in 2004-05 and beyond and it cost us many good players that could have helped pre...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

He was at a few playoffs games sitting a couple rows behind me with his parents (I think). So he is around. But for whatever reason, we don't want him. We had many opportunities to pick him up, even on a 10-day, when we were in need of big guys. And we didn't. Guessing he just isn't a James Jones g...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Could we convince Big Sauce to come back? Why the hell did we let him leave, again? Answering my own question: Alan "Big Sauce" Williams seems to be playing for Lokomotiv Kuban of the VTB United League in Russia. Presumably we could grab him back if we wanted him? https://en.wikipedia.org...

Re: Draft

This is a big draft for James Jones. He has had one draft where he surprised everyone and found a great 3-and-D forward in Cam Johnson. And he has one draft where he may have picked a bust in Jalen Smith. I know our pick is very late in the first round, but if Jones swings and misses on an odd selec...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think I'd target McGee first, and maybe Dwight Howard second. Either one of those guys would bring size and defense at the C spot.

Re: Draft

After watching us squander the future for the sake of the present throughout the SSOL Nash years, I'll never be dismissive about the draft again. I don't care if our pick is 1st or 30th, either way it's a huge opportunity for us to give our team talent and assets for the future. And if James Jones i...

Re: SUNS NEWS: 2021 FINALS EDITION SUNS vs BUCKS

Isn't it crazy how everyone wanted to put an asterisk on a Suns championship, and yet there is no talk of an asterisk for the Bucks? That makes no sense. If we only got to the Finals due to better teams being injured, then the Bucks only won the Finals because those great west teams didn't get ther...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I'm not sure what we should do. You could try to fix the roster to help us beat Milwaukee, but I am not convinced that MIL will be back in the Finals next year. Maybe we should be getting players to help us beat Brooklyn. Or the Lakers. Or the Nuggets. Another big man would be nice. But I'm skeptica...

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

This title was right there for the taking. The Bucks are a very good team, but they are beatable. All we had to do was play our best, the way we are capable of playing. And we gave it away. I don't know when we are going to get this close again.

Weird game so far. Holiday seems back down to earth but Middleton is red hot. Suns offense is all out of sorts.

Re: Game Day: NBA Finals Edition — Game 6 — Phoenix Suns @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 7/20/2021

I have no idea the last time I was this anxious about a sports event. Probably never. Today is going to be a long day. I don't really feel anxious about this game right now. I think I was 10x more anxious before Game 5 because that felt like the pivotal game to me. I was crushed after the Game 5 lo...

Re: SUNS NEWS: 2021 FINALS EDITION SUNS vs BUCKS

When I am at a game I usually pay more attention to our defense and rotations. And I just kept seeing the Bucks hit shot after shot after shot. And it wasn't because they were wide open or because Booker was on Giannis. Middleton and Giannis and Jrue were just having one of those games. And they al...
