Did I talk about efficiency? I’m talking about slamming that ball through that hoop.

What does it matter? Oh that’s right dunks are worth 6 points now I forgot about the rule changes.

I don’t care if you’re shooting behind the back hook shots blind folded if it goes in it goes in.

Ayton is not only one of the biggest #1 overall disappointments but he is a mental small fry. This only reinforces it. Pouting when the Suns called the timeout then skipping out.

Nobody was saying that he is shooting lights out either but you keep saying it. Just stop. You are being ridiculous and being hypocritical.

Sorry I’ll stop point out his poor shooting it obviously offends you.

In fairness, he started doing that towards the end of the season and started racking up cheap fouls. I think he course corrected too much

I don't know what to say. The Suns need Ayton but he has to work harder at getting position.

IMO, he should guard more with his body and keep his hands out of the cookie jar even though a lot of his fouls are ticky tack.

He mainly needs to keep his arms straight up to challenge shots. He can't get away with using his hands and arms to guard Jokic.

The team ignores Ayton on offense. Booker won’t look his way, even when Ayton puts himself in position to shoot a high percentage shot.

Teammates don’t trust Ayton. Without CP3 feeding him the ball on pick and rolls, he’s useless on offense.
Because he sucks and try’s layups over little guys, and his hands suck and loses the ball way too often!

I will likewise stop pointing out his necessary contribution that helped us win. You are as sensitive as Ayton tonight.

He can have high efficiency and miss layups he could have dunked.

It doesn’t really work that way. Say he only misses 3/4 shots a game. How many are you allowed to miss? 3?2? Well now you’re getting into a level of efficiency no one in history has been at.

Too bad. It's time to win games.

Williams should use all three centers next game. Landale's max is around 20 minutes, Biyombo can provide a different defensive look, and Ayton might be more aggressive if he isn't worried about monitoring his foul count.

I’m not. I’ve said over and over I expect him to break out.

I’ve never said his contributions didn’t help that’s you putting words in my mouth I’ve only pointed out his bad shooting

Just like nobody is saying Durant shot well right?

Ayton effectively said this to James Jones

And yet, still gave him $130 mil
