Great to see you, carey! Thanks for the thread and links. Hope all is well.

That Knicks game looks like the toughest one this week. Who knows which Lakers team will show up for the next Sunday game. Could we beat them and push them down into the play-in tournament?

I know Split also follow Nekias and would have mentioned that he been high on the Suns all season. Like he says, he's as big a CP3 fan as there is and for me there's his grounded take and then the usual hot take you find on ESPN tsk lol

At least the National guys are talking about us right ? Smh :twisted:

Ya just saw that...I’m all for CP3 getting some love for MVP...I’d definitely consider him for a 3rd-5th place vote, but Jokic is the MVP and it’s not really close IMO. Embiid has been close on a per game basis, but he played 20 less games. Advantage Jokic.

@ Atlanta isn't chopped liver.

I would love to push LeBron down even further and I would really enjoy watching him whine about it after the game.

I love Perk's love for the Suns this year. It's been fun to follow.

You want to face him in round 1?

3rd time this season! 1st Suns player to do this in a season since Nash, also 3 times, in 2006-2007!
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Great!!!

We need Booker feeling some appreciation as well, CP3 has been an AllStar, but he benefits big deal from the gravity pull that Booker provides on the floor. I know they spent many minutes on their own, but still, it’s not the same that being the focal point for the entire game and specially crush time.

A recent opponent choose to send help from Devin’s side against Paul, and ended on a easy layup from Booker once CP3 felt that help fully committed to him.

We have a backcourt version of Lebron and AD: You can’t really say who’s the MVP, because as good as they are, they need each other to pull defenses into an impossible choice that allows them to operate at MVP level.

I think both will make All-NBA... Paul probably the 2nd team, Booker 3rd team.

It's a shame to see so many injuries in Cleveland. Those guys were playing tougher than their record shows.

I'm tired of us playing these kinda games tbh
I know we've shown our pedigree throughout the season but still want some more measuring stick games in the run in

We hardly playing anyone at full strength :oops:
