Look at Ayton with 4 FT attempts!

And missing all of them.

This team looks like they aren’t running an offense. Just kind of winging it. When Paul was in there last year it was a lot of set plays and you could tell what they were doing I don’t see that this year

It has cost the Suns a lot of close games as well. The Suns don't value possessions like they should.

It's a shame the Suns can't get a couple of players back or a replacement for Crowder.

I just can’t imagine freshly signing a contract that pays you 30 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR and then just giving next to zero effort.

Like, KD is obviously miserable in Brooklyn but he’s a baller so he gets on the court and competitive juices can’t help themselves but start flowing.

Just speaks to the lack of NBA heart Ayton’s just never had.

I was so so so wrong about wanting him over Doncic. Totally got snowed by the size and athleticism and being a Center we’ve never had.

We don’t make the finals or have success we had last year without him. This relationship has run its course

Never said anything about the last two years. I’m talking about today where he’s playing like a total dog. It’s unprofessional garbage befitting someone who’s got very little competitive fire in him.

And anyone who thinks he’s all of a sudden going to become a beast for another team is delusional. He’ll be better than this drek for sure. But not consistently. His entire career outside the first 3 rounds of the 2021 playoffs, he’s been up and down. Which is pathetic for a number 1 pick with all his natural talents.

Ayton getting into a rhythm.

He has 8 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. He also has a steal.
