So? You have been complaining a lot lately, Eric. How does this hiring hurt the Suns at all?
Are you even saying this? Are you drunk or something? The McD extension is a significant announcement. Hiring Jones is a thing too. Good grief.
Not sure what the role of VP of Basketball Operations plays and if it's a non impact position then fine but wouldn't you want someone with experience in that role if it involves personnel decisions? James Jones is retiring to jump right into that position, just seems odd.
"Jones will report to McDonough and work alongside him to oversee all basketball-related matters for the Suns, including the draft, free agency and trades."I like the McD extension. I feel he has grown in the position. I have no opinion on Jones, I'm not sure what his responsibilities will really be. Not a big deal for me. Wait and see.
Yeah, for the life of me I don't understand how people come up with stuff like this. "Nobody wants to be in Phoenix" may have been true a few years ago, but it's simply not true today.
The Suns are the Cardinals of the 80's. The last place laughing stock of the league, the team no one wants to be drafted by and no free agent will ever come.
I'd like to see the team win, but the way they're going the needle is pointed down.
One of the things he said is that nobody wants to be drafted by the team. Where is the proof of that? That is completely not true. And there is fan apathy on THIS board, but not across the board. Otherwise, they'd get nobody going to the games. The fact that we still post here goes against that as well.Having watched both teams since the early, I think it is true.
The Suns are easily one of the irrelevant teams in the NBA. Bad owner. Bad team. Fan apathy. I think McD is turning it around finally, but I have see that Sarver truly has to believe in this team.
Recent situations would easily prove that players do still want to get drafted here. Booker got drafted and in his rookie year he stated that he wants to spend his entire career here. Then this draft of course was the whole Jackson cancelling his workout with Boston while they were on the flight to go see him. That screams that he wanted to be here more than in Boston IMO.One of the things he said is that nobody wants to be drafted by the team. Where is the proof of that? That is completely not true.

Look, I get being down on the team. But enough is enough--they are on an upward trend. You either enjoy it, or stay on the sidelines until they are more relevant.
I used to be PHXSPORTS4LIFE. It was a boring name. And it was a dead time of year (I think summer) and there were a LOT more fun people on the cards board. Still arguing, but a lot of FUN and FUNNY people. So made it a contest on the board and Ouchie garnered the most votes.I don't. I was wondering why. Sounds original.
