To be fair they were really fawning over the fact it would make the lakers a championship contender (disagree) and “…oh yeah it’s good for the suns too.” Lol. I hate the national media bending over for the lakers.I just heard that too. That was FREAKING ridiculous. The idea that Westbrook helps us in any way shape or form was nauseating.
Shooting down every rumor doesn't come across as being "spot on" to me. What has he been right about that we did do?Everything. From the offseason activity to shooting down rumors. He has been spot on. He has been talking to someone in the organization and relayed multiple things that were true.
Go back and look at the off season threads with Ayton. He was spot on which teams were interested, which teams were not and even shot down rumors about which trades the Suns were not interested in. Then when James Jones was on the air didn't debunk one thing Gambo broke. He even shot down the Twitter "insider" who spread a couple rumors and again he was spot on. Plus, if he shoots down a rumor only for it to come true it makes him look stupid so yes...those count. It's been long known Gambo has a connetion in the front office.Shooting down every rumor doesn't come across as being "spot on" to me. What has he been right about that we did do?
No doubt. Do this trade. The Westbrook trade is laughable.Is that a real rumor or just something they are throwing out there.
Because if it’s real you have to pull the trigger on that.
If Book comes back and stays that way, we can win a round in the playoffs, but they are just not mentally or physically tough enough to go on a run much more than that.I like our team, because we stunk for so long and so many seem like cool dudes that like eachother, from bottom scrubbers to valley boys, and we did make the Finals and was best team in the league, so there's that. But I think the window is closing. Sure, there's a theoretical chance when Booker and everyone's healthy we can make a push and make the finals again, if we get the bubble fire going, but I'm leaning more on retooling. Deal Ayton, Paul, even Bridges if the price is right, and also find a next level coach. They should give us assets enough to contend a couple of more years.
And I really hope this Ibisha guy taking over for that prick Bobby Sarver fires and hires a new scouting crew, because we've screwed up far too often the last decade.
when you're down 50 POINTS at home in a Game 7, I think it's safe to say something broke. And we literally did nothing to fix it except subtract some toughness and depth from the roster.Maybe something broke, because we did win the bubble wars, close out teams, and get to the Finals. Though the meltdowns and lack of adjustments are too many, and CP3 is always getting hurt. Only hope now is that Ayton wakes up and Bridges turns into a scorer (he's had a lot of practical training the last months).
