8th spot! I think we can beat the nuggets if the playoffs start now, but we'd have to win the play-in against GS which we won't.

If it started right now I don't believe we could win a 7 game series against any NBA team that wasn't tanking.

Suns are in a legit tail spin. I have mixed feelings. Part of me still thinks the west is weak and a healthy Suns team could compete with anyone. Other part of me is beginning to think maybe I am wrong about that, and this team needs to give up on this season and keep it's draft picks, because even though we could be as good as anyone in the west, the odds of us coming out of the west are slim.

One thing I am now sure of is CP3 needs to go because he cannot be relied on at all. I would be ecstatic if he could be moved by the deadline.

Considering how passive James Jones was in season in our previous two title runs (despite a glaring hole at PF and last year with another shot creator despite our gaudy record), I'm not sure if I buy the "Sarver is tying James Jones' hands" theory but if he is, it might actually be a blessing in disguise because this team ain't going anywhere this season and is going to need our picks as we continue to decline in the coming years.

Kyle Kuzma ain't coming to rescue this team.

Right JJ has proven he’s not that guy.

I think the jury is out still. We don't know what limitations Sarver put on Jones and we also don't know how the impending sale is possibly hindering moves.

I just can't get past not knowing what the new owner will do. I don't know if we will need to hope this squad figures it out, or not invest myself in them knowing we may have a whole new team below Booker. I watch the Suns no matter what, but I am stuck with the in-between right now.

Caleb Martin is out for the Heat. Status of Tyler Herro is uncertain.
