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!

Another game we should win. This is a little bit off an easy stretch before another fun of top playoff teams, and I'd like to see the Suns on a 5 game win streak going into the Bucks game. The younger players should look at teams like Houston as opportunities to grow and take more of the play-making / scoring load.

My ASU daughter is going to her first Suns game tonight!
She knows every player on sight and is TOTALLY caught up in this team.

Proud Dad moment...I've succeeded in making her a fan and this should seal the deal.

Watching Suns in playoffs w/ your daughter: priceless

I saw Ty-Shon Alexander at the end of the last game and couldn't recognize him. I also didn't like his body language while he was on the court...

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

As shown last time we played, they will have stretches when they rack up some points and that is improved with Wall playing
They surely aren't stopping us tho

Book has me kinda puzzled how he came out casual against fellow alum Wall. Not sure why he wouldn't expect Wall will be ready for the matchup, way too casual

So happy for Jevon. Rooting for the guy. Him and Payne in the bubble were a blast to watch.

I thought 00 for Houston was Josh Boone for a minute, then I remembered it's not 2008.

I wish Monty would do it more
Sometimes I think Cam P is doing fine but Monty will bring back CP3 for like our final play of the quarter or immediately to start the 2nd
