Discussion in 'Phoenix Suns' started by fatosber, Nov 7, 2017.
I can't believe some of the idle speculation around the NBA by fans and writers.
Here is one regarding Monroe.
Monroe is an expiring contract and a player that has value. Yet some fans want us to take their garbage.
Give me a break.

It is because of our front office reputation. Unfortunately.
I don't think so. Its just wishful thinking. McD had some good trades and bad ones, but he has NEVER taken on bad contracts in trade.
Except for the Knight trade, McDonough has not made any bad trades although some may have misinterpreted other trades, especially the Bledsoe trade.
If push came to shove I would have traded Bledsoe for an expiring contract and been satisfied. It would have been a terrible move to pay Bledsoe the money he wanted. Also he was not the right PG for the Suns.
The Bucks last two games tells me a lot especially the Mavericks game.
A good chunk of McDonuts shortcomings stem from working for a terrible owner and a floundering franchise.
He’s always holding a weak hand when dealing with other GMs and trying to sign free agents.

Some writers are extreme homers and view their trash as valuable, or at least not as trash. There is absolutely no way the Suns should make that trade with Detroit, if they did then the NBA should step in and void and force Sarver to sell while immediately letting McD go. Even if they included their pick I wouldn't do that trade since they're #2 in the East right now.
Bledsoe comes back to Phoenix tomorrow. Lord I hope he doesn't go off for a triple double. He has not been playing great for the Bucks.
Sounds like the comment of an exemplary professional with great self-awareness.
Ohhhh I cant wait to see the tension on the court tonight. Should be spicey.
Suns players seem to be cool with Bledsoe. Although when players return to play their old team, it's a different matter.
Monroe might have something to say as well.
Eric had this same impact when he started with the Suns. In his defense, it seems to take other players some time to figure out how to play with him.
