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

Too many turnovers and very little rhythm to the offense. The Nuggets had the Suns defense scrambling the entire second half that I saw. Give them credit, they wanted this game badly and they took it. The team is going to have to get used to that this year. We made the WCF last season so there's no...

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

I managed to surreptitiously make most of my picks during a meeting but was very unfocused (both on the draft and meeting). I think I’ll be looking for some pick ups sooner rather than later.

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

I may be able to drop in for a pick or two but will essentially be auto drafting (work is not looking promising to have anything like a break at draft time). To be fair, it might actually help 😂

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

Earlier is better for me- I'll be at work at the revised time and unlikely to be able to check in so will auto draft, but not too worried if that's the case.

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

It’ll be Monday morning here so I’ll probably be a combo of auto picks and live drafting, which is fine. Will we know the draft order beforehand or just before the draft starts?

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

Sorry to throw a further spanner in the works but I'm not sure if I can properly commit to a league of this high standard this year. Work, family stuff is pretty full on at the moment - I'd like to pick up again after a year off but don't think I can do it properly this season. If it's the differenc...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Yea I wasn't too crazy about the Lakers roster but those two will help with shooting/spacing. It appears the Lakers are modifying themselves to beat us. Lol. I still don’t see them putting it all together. Their roster looks like they’re gonna want to get out in transition. The pressure will be on ...

Yep, Australia is in trouble if it’s a shootout. I would like to see how both teams go if it’s a close game down the stretch

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I’d love to take a flier on Exum - he’d give some good athleticism at the guard spot but isn’t a knock down three point shooter.

Exum had this nice dunk at the Olympics the other day playing for Australia:

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I am slightly concerned that we are content with adding McGee and re-signing Paul and Payne (al good moves btw) and aren’t looking to do anything else significant. I feel like we’re still one, maybe two, decent adds from being in the very upper tier in the west.

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: 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...
