- Reaction score
Some nice insight by Devin Booker looking back to the Finals.
I really don't understand. Blocking out for rebounds is almost an instinctive reaction when playing basketball at an early age.
If I wanted $207 million dollars it wouldn't happen to me even if it is preseason.
I agree, which is why I think some of us here get so worked up when we see guys just stand around and wait for the ball.
I agree, to be fair he's also made over $40 million from his time in the NBA already so another $207 million isn't the same.
It's not a great sign while negotiating for it right now, especially with McGee looking so good and costing 15% of what Ayton is asking for annually.
McGee is bringing it for sure. I could even hear the crowd reaction on the radio. If I were Ayton, I'd try to bring some of the same energy.
We don't hear much about Bridges extension which makes me think it is done. It's going to be kind of weird if the Suns announce his extension and not Ayton.
I do respect that James Jones has a better perspective on the situation than we do. I don't think it is Sarver being cheap.
I have the same feeling on Bridge's extension. They can't announce it before Ayton's with all that's going on there so it'll probably come down the deadline, October 18th. I hope that's the case and will be upset if it's not.
I guess some people expect more than 11 rebounds in 15 minutes......
I hope you're right, but I don't think you are.I feel good that Bridges will be extended and we will hear something about it as soon as we know what happens with Ayton.
I hope you're right, but I don't think you are.
Mikal is by far the more contentious negotiation. If they want to low ball Deandre, I would expect they want to do so even more with Mikal.
Hate to say it but I think Sarver is just thinking about the luxury tax and how to avoid it as much as possible, and not thinking about the consequences of low balling players will actually mean to his bottom line in the long run.
Bridges seems like a very secure individual emotionally. He does not seem driven by personal recognition or being respected just like his peers. I expect that he sees this as a good situation, wants a good contract, and will be willing to take a good deal even if it doesn't squeeze every penny out of the team. Just my take.The reason I think the Bridges extension is near done is because things are so quiet about it. If things were not going well I think we would have heard something. Certainly I could be wrong.
