I can't tell if the Lakers loss or the Warriors loss hurts more.

We had the Warriors game in our back pocket, and could have had the #1 seed if we had won.

Yeah I meant which one bothers me more personally. As you said the Warriors win was in our back pocket. On the other hand, it's the Lakers... I mean, fuck the Lakers...

Wow. Was it serious or are they just taking precautions?
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!

Well, there you go! 11-5. Better than expected. Great season. I think Bobster said that this winning percentage puts us at 5th best Suns regular season of all-time.
I don't have a good stat site; can somebody tell me the top 5? I assume it's the 90s team plus SSOL mid-2000s teams mostly? Maybe one of the older teams from the 70s too?

Actually, Bobster posted them in the game day thread.

Don't know but he probably won't be 100% on Wednesday.

Saw a tweet that had a quote from Vogel who said he was fine.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

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

He looked ok when he was walking around on the sidelines after. And by the time the 4th quarter came around, there was no incentive for the lakers to win or lose the game. everything was already set by that point.
