Lol. We play “twin towers” and they still score at will in the paint. Soft. This team is so soft.

Suns need forwards that can slash to the basket.

The Suns need to have players who try hard on defense and commit more to hustling like they care.

I'm biased because he's a Kiwi but Adams is such a stud. He's been around so long you forget he's still only 29. Can't shoot but he's the best offensive rebounder in the league, the best screener in the league and he's good on defense.

The NBA is full of huge human beings but Adams is like another level of strong.

Adams does a good job of rebounding and cleaning-up underneath the basket but a mobile center with skills should make short work of him.

Without Booker and Payne the Suns don't have anyone slashing to the basket.

Monty needs to play Ayton and let him eat this loss. But more importantly learn how not to get bullied, toughen up and quit being such a damn pansy. Maybe he’ll reach a breaking point.

At least Biz is playing defense.

Man… the difference that 2019 draft makes. We’ve got the worst record and instead of getting Zion or Morant, we get Cam J and Dario.

Those two guys def helped one run to the Finals, but Ja/Booker we could have built around for a decade. Ja/Booker/Ayton/Bridges… that would have been a pretty incredible four pieces to build around.

Was it the same guy who said Ja Morrant was the next Isaiah Canaan?

The Suns had a chance for a makeup draft in 2020.

The Suns weren't fixed in the off season and a relatively early season schedule disguised the flaws.

What happened to those play makers, shooters and a power forward.

This falls on Jones for standing pat with a roster that had/has extremely obvious flaws. Maybe him and Keim started hanging out and shared ways to be the worst GM possible.
