Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I’m ok with McGee deal. We needed some more size which he provides. As others have said, we still need another big forward. I also think we need some more 3point shooting and play making. I think there will be some decent options through free agency, but they’ll be low key rather than flashy moves, ...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Interesting with Tucker. Good deal for him at 36 years old

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Even with Nance, I think we’d need a legit back up big for certain match-ups and when Ayton is in foul trouble (we clearly relied on him just a bit too much against the Bucks).

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think we’re zero chance of getting Jarrett Allen but as others have said that might make Nance jnr available. I don’t know how we make a trade with the Cavs to get him. He’s on a pretty friendly contract for another year (I think). We don’t have a heap of good draft picks to offer. Would we be pre...

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

This one (the Finals series) is going to sting for a long time. Looking around the league at some of the stacked teams, realistically we may not get a better shot to win one for quite some time. That feels awfully pessimistic to write, but is how I feel right now. It was a helluva season but reflect...

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

Stunning turnaround in the second. Clearly we’re a much better team when Paul is shooting well, but our d generally has been very good for the first half. Two more quarters like that second one please!

We are way out of sorts, but we have missed some very gettable shots.it’s real hard but we have to keep running our stuff and obviously make some damn shots

Re: GAME DAY, NBA FINALS EDITION — GAME 2 — MILWAUKEE BUCKS @ PHOENIX SUNS THURSDAY, 7/8/2021

So I guess the chatter about free throw disparity in game one had an impact. Really important to stay strong here late in the 3rd while we’re over the limit and Giannis is going to work.

I wish the fans would chant the count on that first free throw, and when he misses, stop chanting on the second to throw him off.
Yeah I think they need to mix it up a bit or it could end up helping him get in a rhythm in a way.

Re: GAME DAY, NBA FINALS EDITION — GAME 2 — MILWAUKEE BUCKS @ PHOENIX SUNS THURSDAY, 7/8/2021

All those 3s must be pretty demoralising for the Bucks. You’d have to think they will tighten up on that I’m the second half so the key should open up for us a bit. If not, we can just keep cashing three-point jump shots. Just need to keep the defensive intensity up and keep real keyed in on that end.

Re: Game Day, NBA Finals Edition — Game 1 — Milwaukee Bucks @ Phoenix Suns, Tuesday 7/6/2021

There's been a bit of chatter about how many foul shots we got compared to Milwaukee: https://twitter.com/HPbasketball/status/1412612670562312193 Definitely saw this coming with the free throw disparity for most of the game. I need to watch the game again and look more closely at some of the fouls....

Re: Game Day, NBA Finals Edition — Game 1 — Milwaukee Bucks @ Phoenix Suns, Tuesday 7/6/2021

Awesome way to start the series, taking care of business. Of course, it's all about game 2 now - if the Bucks squeak out a close win in Game 2 the good vibes from this one will be gone pretty quickly. I thought we did a good job of adjusting a few times to things that were working well for the Bucks...

Let's go Suns! It would be great to set a tone early with a convincing win in Game 1. It's going to be so nerve-wracking this Finals series, and hopefully so much fun.

Any Australia based suns fans here?
That would be me. Time zone difference is a killer for work productivity!
Based on the north?
In SA. The US evening games are mid morning tip-offs for me, which is tough to manage.

Re: Eastern Conference Finals: Hawks vs Bucks

Also a lot of the players out with injury are injury-prone players. Not all granted, but Kawhi, AD, Kyrie they’re often injured. Part of the deal with paying big $s on players like that is the risk they’ll miss big games with injury.
I could care less about any narrative if we win the title.

All that person to person contact the Suns had with the crowd did make me a little Covid nervous after Paul got Covid right after their first clinched series and went around hugging everyone.
Made me nervous as well.
