No no no, I asked you to make more predictions, please do.Even if you count Crowder as a starting 4 (and he was clearly our weak link as a starter last year), the Suns need a primary back-up 4...badly. That is NOT a 12th man.
That’s what I was hoping for, a scrub to come off the bench and take that punk out.I cannot put into words how much I detest Pat Beverly. Since the refs and the league don't do anything about it, the Suns should get an enforcer to just take guys out like they do in hockey. If anyone comes after our guys then the enforcer should just sub in and immediately run over and undercut the best player on the other team. I'm serious.
The obvious answer is they are going to use them, or at least intended to.One interesting question on the radio:
If the Suns weren't going to use the full power of their exemptions this offseason, why didn't they just have Chris Paul opt in and extend for 3 seasons under the same total terms, except front-loaded at $44 million for the first year?
That would have left them more room to extend Bridges and Ayton...that is IF Sarver intends to extend Bridges and Ayton.
As has been said over and over, if Beverly takes out your best player you don’t take out Beverly, you take out Paul George. Why would you trade Booker for Beverly?
Anyone can do it. They just need be willing. It’s not difficult to take someone out. Beverly proved that by head butting book, undercutting Paul and them shoving him in the back. None of those requires a golden gloves champion.Before deciding who gets flattened we need someone who can be subbed in to put someone on their ass. It's pointless to debate who we should retaliate against when there isn't someone on our bench that can deliver a crushing blow.

Oh don’t get me wrong, I don’t think we will ever see it from a current member of our team.I didn't say it needed to be a badass. Kaminsky could do it, physically, and so could Galloway. They need to be willing to though, which is what we lacked. We also don't have a coach that would ask a player to do that, for better or worse.
