    Why can't we discuss obvious issues and enjoy the team and games at the same time?

    Isn't good to hear another point of view that may vary from your own?

    Personally, I enjoy reading the good and negative points of view and making my own conclusions. Nothing anyone posts on this board would prevent me from enjoying the suns.

    Underrated part of Booker's game is his screen game. Cam Johnson got that big three late because Booker wiped out the guy guarding him.

    He couldn't jump shoot last night so he just kept attacking the rim and drawing FTs

    He also boxed out Gobert at one point so he couldn't get the offensive rebound. You don't expect a 6'6 guy to wipe out a 7 footer on a box out.

    Booker is doing all the little thing to get to the next level.

    It’s not about the “who” for me as much as the “what.” A defended step back 3 with 10 seconds on the clock? Yuck.

    Unless the 7 footer is Ayton.

    Lol. There was a sequence last night where I saw Gobert rebound and hit a shot and was fouled between two of our wing and then immediately following Ayton had position and allowed himself to get boxed out by two Utah guards. I could just shake my head.

    You know what that also is? Ayton altering a shot. Something he has done a ton of this year and doesn't get credit.

    I can’t help but key on him every game. So I see his great plays and his awful ones. He may be the only player in my years of watching basketball that I find myself watching off ball consistently.

    I'm open for discussions of all sorts regarding the Suns. What I'm not a fan of though is someone who only shows up to bash a certain player, regardless of what that player has been doing. That's what 1tin has been doing in regards to Booker for the last year or so. Look at his post history. Its easy to see the pattern.

    thanks (in no small part) to Booker, we achieved the 2nd best record in the league

    so would it be wrong to mention that...
    if Book had not called a player of Paul George's caliber a "soft ___ ______" we might have won both games, the season series, have the best record in the league, a better chance at a higher seed and beating the Clips in the playoffs?

    How predictable, you show up to bash Book after he played a good game but the team came up short. Seriously, you should change your name to 2Sun.
