I think we forget, or don't consider, that almost none of the top draft picks come into the NBA in these times with four years of college. Deandre and Booker were so YOUNG. You just cannot create instant experience and development of a player.What I find crazy is how he went from an empty stat guy, to now being a guy that the stats don't tell the how story.
Ayton is easily the best true center the Suns have had. AND he still is getting better.
Here you go...
Actually that’s fake news. Paul’s turnovers got quite a bit of attention on this board with lots of conversation regarding the job holiday did on him defensively. But he also countered that with some intermittent superb play. People commented on Ayton having an awful game but almost to a person every poster that did so also celebrated his last minutes of powerful play helping lead to the W.It’s low hanging fruit at this point. Chris Paul had more turnovers in the game than he’s had in 3 months and was horrible but not a word.
I just ignore most of it these days
That’s when you know (a) it’s become important to someone; and (b) that they will understand what is needed of them. If you don’t ask questions you’re assuming you understand everything someone told you - I guarantee you that’s a rare occurrence.I like that Deandre Ayton has learned to ask questions.
I think a lot of people don't really understand just how rare it is to have a player like this. Not only skill-wise but personality-wise. He gets a lot of criticism about being happy-go-lucky, but I think that has helped him immensely in taking and acting on constructive criticism. I honestly don't think someone like Book would have reacted the same way had it been him getting all this talking to, just based on his personailty.I like that Deandre Ayton has learned to ask questions.
That would be a good thread idea. Nash and Book are definitely 1-2 at the moment. Then you have guys like Amare, Marion, Nance, Davis, Adams etc…
he was drafted by the Suns and had his best years in a Suns uniform why wouldn’t he count
