Nurk.... What an absolute beast, the effort down low is such a great thing to see, love it, wish Ayton would have fought that hard down low when he was here, at least the last couple of years...
I would have settled for him learning these moves down low like Nurkic. We needed him to train off season with Euro big men.

I would have too, Ayton didn't have that type of work ethic though, and it was painfully clear, I am not hating on the guy, but man, he has so much potential. I wish him the best with Portland as well.

So what percentage of games against terrible teams do you think a championship contender should dominate? 10%? 15%?
There is no specific percentage because how you play against good teams is significantly more important for a championship contender than how you play against bad teams. SSOL dominated bad teams all the time, but yet never even got to the finals (had their chances, but never pulled it off).

It was pointed out on the radio today recapping the 2023 sports year, the buying of the Suns happened in 2023. KD was brought here in 2023. New coaching staff. Beal trade, Ayton trade, free agency frenzy bringing all these guys to Phoenix, all happened in 2023.
