    Still trying to figure out all the Suns players in Orlando but this snippet from Gina Mizell's Valley Tales Newsletter helps.

    It looks like Cameron Payne, Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Dario Saric, Ty Jerome, Jevon Carter and Kelly Oubre Jr. are there.

    All that because I said let's judge Ayton's development as a #1
    pick by how he helps get us into the playoffs versus his stats?

    I am a Suns fan and have been for a long time. You set your
    priorities and I'll set mine. Reversing a decade out of the
    playoffs is my priority. Not condoning it.

    I will applaud our players who make that difference. And be
    disappointed in those who are stat stuffers and avoid contact.

    I don't consider that silly! I am not comparing him to LeBron.

    It was great to see a picture of Kelly Oubre putting up a shot.

    I'm so past ready. If I could watch the players practice that would do a lot for me. When I became really attached to the Suns was watching them practice and scrimmage during the summer. It was more personal than a game.

    There was a tweet yesterday showing Diana Taurasi draing corner three after corner three, and I had the same reaction, I could just watch the practices and be entertained!

    Agree. Even more so if one can physically be there at the gym.

    Nothing like hearing the squeaking of tennis shoes, the banter of players and hearing the ball swish through the net.

    Although mostly rehabbing Monty describes Oubre as looking great.

    The Suns team health is described as "solid."

    If anyone was worried about Ayton not taking the time off seriously.

    From Duane Rankin at azcentral:


    "His body looks unbelievable," Suns coach Monty Williams said. "He's a gifted young man in that way. I wish I had that, you know what I mean. He looks great. He's done a really good job of taking care of himself."

    ----------------------

    "(Suns strength and conditioning coach Cory Schlesinger) sent a ton of workouts to all our guys," Williams said. "And maybe because we're so young, and genetically gifted, a lot of our guys look really, really, good, and DA is certainly at the top of that list."

    Kelly Oubre has three dunks in the NBA.com Top 100.



    From Duane Rankin at azcentral:

    Monty Williams says Kelly Oubre Jr. has “his bounce” as he continues rehabbing his knee in Orlando bubble with the Phoenix Suns hoping he plays during the NBA restart.

    “Kelly’s a freak athlete,” Williams said after Saturday’s practice.


    NBA.com recognized that "bounce" as the league website recently ranked three of Oubre’s slams in their Top 100 so far this 2019-20 season.
