    Mike Budenholzer - Officially Suns new Head Coach

    yeah, there are teams where Vogel could work out well. Teams with veterans and size.

    Mike Budenholzer - Officially Suns new Head Coach

    I think Vogel losing to basement dwellers like SAS this season was his demise. As well it should have been. His inability to make adequate substitutions and utilize bench talent (Bol, Okogie, Young) even with their inherent warts, was inexcusable. As well as pulling players out of the game when...

    NBA Finals Predictions 2024 (Pick only 2)

    sure looks that way. Denver has to win 4 out of 5 games with three away. Good luck with that!

    "It's like Looney Tunes around here" - A Suns source reveals how chaotic the organization is under new owner Mat Ishbia

    You have 5 years to wait? But a good point. Also, whoever scouts talent for Miami should get a blank check from Ishbia to join Suns. They are best in league at grabbing talent out of the weeds. Something the Suns have always been pathetic at. It might be the best decision for Suns Ishbia...

    "It's like Looney Tunes around here" - A Suns source reveals how chaotic the organization is under new owner Mat Ishbia

    I admire Ishbia's passion and willingness to spend, but the KD/Beal trades crushed us for years to come. I get the reasoning behind both trades, but we gave up way too much for KD. It looked at first like the Beal trade was smart considering we were losing an aging CP3 who was useless in the...

    Suns 2024-2025 Season Discussions

    While getting a good PG would be beneficial, how are you going to get one that can pass and play defense. We are already weak on defense. We are already undersized and under-athletic-ed at almost every defensive position. Yeah, a good PG will help our offense but at the expense of defense. But...

    Devin Booker is the greatest player EVER in Suns history

    Booker isn't magically going to get more athletic and suddenly become a great defender. This is "peak Book" we are witnessing. Great player but not in superstar conversation nor will he ever IMHO. Question is...how to proceed? If other teams call about any Suns player, take the call. Book or KD...

    Do Suns blow it up?

    I say something major has to happen. You have 2 bigs who can’t hit an easy 4 foot shot or cover mobile forwards/centers. No pg. you have Booker who is easily stiffled by physicial defenders. You have Beal who at most would be a solid bench player on most teams and an aging KD. You have...

    Timberwolves @ Suns Friday Playoff game thread 4-26-2024 - Game 3

    gonna be a dogfight! again. Well, one dog so far. Wolves didn't even shoot well, and dominated. That's a scary thought. Reduce turnovers, make shots, grab rebounds, play defense, get out on fast breaks, have at least neutral refs who call hacking & mugging fouls. sounds simple, doesn't it? Not...

    Suns getting hacked every time they touch the ball or go for a rebound. This isn’t basketball. This is rugby

    Suns @ Timberwolves Tuesday Playoff game thread 4-23-2024 - Game 2

    ...unless we are talking about Dallas in playoffs last year. He struggles with playoff physicality and no-calls. He gets mugged a lot and doesn't sell it well enough. Hope he has a strong game tomorrow.

    Suns @ Timberwolves Saturday Playoff game thread, 4-20-24 - Game 1

    Suns need to win next game or I fear it’ll be a short series. I don’t see Suns winning two in a row at home.

    Suns @ Timberwolves Saturday Playoff game thread, 4-20-24 - Game 1

    This team will only go as far as Booker takes them. He’s getting fouled like crazy out there with few calls. As we have seen in the past, that typically takes him right out of his game. He needs to focus on getting to his spots early and often and tone back the distributer aspect of his game...

    CP3 not retiring

    In my humble opinion, player leadership from the bench isn't that special. Thomas gives team tons of support from the bench. Does he give leadership?...I'm not sure at all. In my mind, leadership on the floor is way better.

    2024 NBA Play-in Games

    so true. I am not sure I have ever seen such a nimble person for such a massive guy. Maybe Charles Barkley comes close. But Zion is way more fluid than even Charles. I'm very surprised Pels don't utilize him even more. He's unstoppable. Now injured. Very sad.

    Suns trade for Beal

    Beal has been a savior in 4th quarter of late. Seems to me that KD and Book often get Suns the big lead in quarters 1-3. But they get tired in 4th and start bricking shots and try to win the game on lazy 3s that they are then missing and ball movement comes to a halt. And hero mode ensues. Not...

    Suns trade for Beal

    I've noticed this also. Sometimes when he drives and weaves, I wish he would just take a short step-back jumper.

    Quick, who gets the 7 and 8th Spots?

    League inserted Scott Foster to assure Lakers get to the line plenty. Which they did like 2:1. And this against an inside team with Zion on it. unbelievable. But hey, they got their hero Bron to the first round! Mission accomplished!

    Quick, who gets the 7 and 8th Spots?

    Getting LeBron and Curry in there for an extra potentially 14+ games would make Marv Albert go into cardiac arrest.

    Quick, who gets the 7 and 8th Spots?

    refs are gonna be working overtime with added petroleum jelly, trying to cram Warriors and Lakers up our asses and into the playoffs.

    Theory on home court

    It would be insane due to travel, but he fairer way to do it is have the games keep alternating courts. home, away, home, away... Knicks are pissed because they see their number 2 seed as having an unfavorable first round opponent. (not sure why). Maybe have the best teams choose who their...

    Theory on home court

    I 100% agree with this. There is a tremendous amount of pressure on the home team to with BOTH of the first two games. The visiting team is playing loose and easy with house money and have less pressure. Their only pressure is to try to snag one victory if possible. But if the visiting team...
