Suns News: Week 16 4/5 - 4/11

Post by BAMF »

No one made it so.... I guess I would half way in.

BTW after yesterdays win we could lose the rest of the season and still be 50% win bracket! Woot!

I can't stand RJ always hating on the Suns. The dude should be way cooler sense he is from here. Maybe he is bitter we never got him.

RJ can eat a bag of... I can't say it. I have no doubt last year's bubble team would be in the playoffs.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

The current team is projected to win 50 games on 538. How many wins does the Rubio-led quad win this season if the Paul trade isn't made? More than 40?

No way. How many games has Paul kept us in with his playmaking or shooting? A lot.

I’m with Indy. We certainly wouldn’t be a top seed.

If we ran back last years team we’d be fighting for the play in games, which currently would be 24-28 wins. We’d be soooooo sexy though

I’d put us probably just behind the Dallas/Portland group...just ahead of all the other play-in hopefuls(Memphis, SA, GS)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

The trade was a home run. Bottom line.

No doubt. But we were on track for a much-improved season without it too.

I think most of the 25th WNBA anniversary jerseys are legit. Whoever worked the designs on them should get some swings at the NBA jerseys.

It's the deadline right now for players to be waived and also be allowed to join a playoff roster.

12 of our final 16 games are on the road. Who makes up schedules like this?

That's rough, but good thing the Suns have the best road record in the league.

This. Although they might not by the end of it. Tough way to end the season.

Do we want the best record or a healthy and rested team at the end of the season?
