    Yup. Just keep winning. That’s what it’s all about right now. Let Ayton develop in the flow of the team.

    Ayton's been doing a great job recently. I notice him calling for the ball once in a while, he's been finishing some nice lobs from Booker and Paul, and he's been maintaining his defensive focus. I am very happy with Ayton the last couple of weeks.

    The little baby hook is virtually automatic against smaller players. It’s never going to draw fouls, but it’s a powerful weapon. If he can get it to work against bigger and better defenders, watch out.

    Ayton's stats are becoming meaningful and not just numbers. I'm liking 4th quarter Ayton.

    dude has grown by leaps and bounds since Monty benched him. Some guys could south at that moment. Ayton didn’t. Major credit for that alone, but the continued improvement ever since then has been awesome to watch.

    Still think that having a kid was his wake up call.

    We haters are enjoying his success. It's awesome, I hope he keeps making us look stupid.

    His length and athleticism are going to be so important in the playoffs on the defensive end. For the record the best games I saw DA play in college were in P12 Tournament, the two ASU games and the Oregon FBI game all of which were under bright lights and scrutiny (I'll give him a pass for Buffalo game since PJC could barely get the ball past halfcourt).

    Kid has a very laid back personality so part of me thinks/hopes the intensity and spotlight of playoff basketball will light a fire that a Tuesday night game vs Orlando won't.

    Ayton pretty much anchors the Suns team without big man depth.

    The Suns season rises or falls with his play. Phoenix wouldn't be where they are without him.

    Yep, we're only a championship team if Ayton takes us there. Terrifying, but he's definitely showing growth.

    I think we ride him hard because we know what he's capable of. With great power, comes great responsibility. When he shows what he's capable of, we shout loud to praise him.
