They have never asked him to be that player. He has never been asked to be that guy. His offense was a complete afterthought until this playoffs. It’s not all on him.
Here we go...the Cam J pile on
He does have moves. He just isn’t effective at using them . That’s what happens when you’ve been the fourth or fifth option the entire time you have been here. Honestly, they need to fire Mark Bryant and bring in someone to work with him full time on low post moves.I'm not trying to put it all on him but he should have developed some sort of offensive moves by now, whether the 3rd option or not.

This was Book’s playoff debut and we got within 2 games of a championship. He’s absolutely a #1. If he had any help in game 4 and 5 we’re champs. Middleton didn’t do much tonight and Book was on him the entire game. His 3 ball needs more consistency but he’s won a 3 point contest so he CAN shoot. It’s just a consistency thing. But Book, though he does need to make better decisions and not let the refs get in his head in my opinion has proven to be a superstar. We sure as **** don’t beat the Clips in game 1 and 2 without Book and CP3 playing but he carried us.Agree. I think Ayton becomes a terrific #3. But that’s his likely ceiling. I don’t think book is good enough as-is to be a championship #1 either. His defense will never be that level, he’s not consistent enough drawing fouls or shooting 3’s, and he still lets his emotions get the better of him far too often. He would be the best #2, or really a 1b in the league. Kinda need to get him an equivalent sidekick. Kinda like a kawhi and Paul George pairing.
Giannis is the best big man in the league and asking Ayton or Crowder to stop him was wishful thinking. Ayton could have played better for sure but the Suns don’t have anybody on this roster who can play at that level that consistently. Giannis is the best big man since Shaq and I bet he surpasses him before all is said and done. I have never seen a guy that big move like he does. Not sure anybody can guard him in the league.“Not running down the court” now equals “match giannis”. Lol at terrible takes.
