Ugh. Not good! He'll probably play through it in the playoffs and get it repaired in the offseason.
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!

Even in a 30 point blowout, and the other game in double OT, I wasn't turning the channel.
Luckily my DVR is able to record multiple channels simultaneously. Still, they kind of spoiled it during our broadcast.

I think I'd rather face Denver than Portland in the next round. What do you guys think?

I think I would prefer portland, but it isn't by much.

that doesn't sound like a day-to-day injury recovery.

I can’t decide...I think we should be favored in either series
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.

If Paul is healthy and we get through the Lakers, I think we will be favored in every series except against the Nets.

I can't like this enough. Amazing, isn't it?

I still remember in preseason when the media asked the Suns what their expectation was and they said a championship. Nobody but them believed it.

But yeah, the Paul health question is a big one! Come on, basketball gods! Just once!

Jinx what? We already got the Lakers. At this point I don’t care who we face next... Oh, you mean this series isn’t over yet. Relax. :D I don’t think I’ve got those kinds of powers, Aztec!

Dallas closes the 3rd on a big run and takes a 14 point lead into the 4th... are we headed towards a Phoenix, Denver, Utah, Dallas semis? That would be cool

Dallas survives...Clippers cut it to 1 and had a chance to take the lead with 20 seconds to go, but couldn’t get a bucket.

Dallas just narrowly beats LAC. A couple of bad possessions by Kawhi to end the game, especially a contested 3 with over 4 seconds to go to tie the game.
It's interesting that both teams won all their games on the road, we will see if the Mavs are able to close out the series in game 6.

The Clippers lost to a team starting Boban. If that's not great I don't know what is.

I never thought Dillon Brooks would be this good in the NBA, but he's never been scared of the moment even going back to his days at Oregon.

I promise half of this board would be losing their shit over him during the regular season if he were a Suns player because he's so inefficient and tries to do ridiculously reckless stuff. He's on fire now though, so gotta give him credit for that.
We got Obre instead what's the difference?

Oubre was much better for us than Brooks has been for Memphis

Realistically, didn't we "make" Oubre famous in the 1 year he was with us?
I didn't know Jack about him till he was traded to us.


I guess dunks(on PG) and sex appeal will get you far........
