Ah, got it. I don't have ill will towards him. He didn't work out here. Backcourt 2000 was a big bust. But he brought us Joe Johnson. :)
Maybe Backcourt 2020 will bring us the championship we were looking for. :P

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.

This tells me we need to keep Giannis to his 38 mpg and get Ayton back to his 42 mpg and match the Giannis minutes every second.

Yes…and keeping Ayton out of foul trouble is huge. This was really the first game of the playoffs where he’s been in foul trouble, so I feel pretty good about that.

I just love that Giannis can bulldoze into Ayton with body contact, while Ayton's arms are in sublime verticality, and continue to rack up foul after foul on Ayton. Not sure what defense there is for that. #givemefibaorgivemedeath

It’s not only Giannis. Middleton got his second and third free throws of the series in an end of half play where in my slightly biased eyes Ayton displayed perfect verticality. That happened to be Ayton’s third foul of the game and completely changed the landscape for the second half.

I will be honest
Not really digging the chatter about FTAs in most the interviews as I think we were just outworked period.

Either way, Cam here talking in general

We can be outworked and get the bad whistle at the same time. Those two things aren’t mutually exclusive. If anything, knowing that you are being watched closely and the other team is getting the benefit of the doubt whenever there is ambiguity will lead to you playing more tentatively.

We knew before the game that the Bucks were going to be aggressive and the Suns were not going to get the benefit of the calls with it being in Milwaukee and Foster reffing the game. They do need to figure out how to stop Giannis better than they have. The Suns need a better wall.

It’s weird. For four years I was against wasting money on a wall. Now I’m all for building a better wall. Giannis must be stopped!

We know what the past was like and it's not the distant past either that things were a mess on and off the court but let's hope the good vibes in the City continue

I'm assuming this is said flight.

That’s very cool. If Sarver isn’t careful he might accidentally win over some people here.

He is going to take in ~20M in ticket sales for Game 5 alone. And he still hasn't brought back the people he laid off during the pandemic.

I keep forgetting to mention that the great FLEX was totally wrong about Giannis’ status for this series. He said he wouldn’t be ready until game three at the earliest.

To be fair to FLEX (why do I even care?) he's a Suns insider, so trusting his word on gossip from other teams is a fools errand.
