His answer is great. It doesn’t matter what anyone says about the team in the media. His job is to play games and get wins.

LOL, that was a great answer from Mikal. And, as a mini-Marion, he may have even snuck in a "knowhatI'msayin" in there. Chef's kiss.

Interesting Suns mention from the Randy Livingston gambling addiction story:
Livingston’s gambling worsened with the large amounts of money he earned in the NBA.

High-stakes card games of tunk, poker and bourré were commonplace with the players on team planes and in hotels to kill time. He said he gambled with the likes of Hall of Famers Charles Barkley and Clyde Drexler while playing for the Rockets. Livingston said a bourré card game went in a bad direction on a Phoenix Suns private plane once when it led to a fight between his then-teammates Cliff Robinson against Penny Hardaway and Todd Day.

“Me, Cliff, Penny and Todd were all playing bourré and the pot got up there to $30,000,” Livingston said. “And something was said to Todd by Cliff, who finally won a pot. We were beating Cliff every road trip. Someone said, ‘That post has to go back to [Day].’ Cliff went crazy. We had season-ticket holders on the plane. The Suns let family and anyone on the plane. A fight broke out and they grabbed each other. Cliff fell and Todd stomped him. It was crazy.”

Love this tweet because it is showing how awesome Book has been but also touching on that head scratching stat from the FT line. Feels like he splits the FTs almost every time smh :oops:
5/11 would indicate that too...

This might be a week late, but I'm just going through the Dunker Spot podcast episode on the Suns, and it's a great listen.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We hosted the feast at my house this year, and my wife's side of the family all came over. Lots of children at play and happy well-fed adults and good times all around.

Nekias is the real deal. If you are on twitter and not following him, you need to re-evaluate. Same goes for his podcast. They had a full hour-long segment with David Kevin (@TheIVPointPlay) a couple weeks ago.
