    I really like the team d this second half.

    I wish they would do this more often.

    Ayton has 17 points, 14 rebounds and 2 blocks. He is the center you have always wanted.

    Y'know Chap, attacking me is not going to make the Suns any better.

    But if it makes you feel better . . .

    Oubre ties the game with 3 pointer.

    It is not about stats. Is he becoming, as a #1 pick and a Center, a difference maker, game by game.

    I hope you're right. But holding the ball down low all of a sudden, just as Andrew Lang used to, and
    getting stripped is not a step forward.

    I’m not attacking you, I’m attacking your ridiculous posts. Why in the world can you not admit that the officiating is bad?

    Oubre fouled twice on baseline.

    You're right! The officiating is bad.

    The question is why does it so often go against the Suns.

    Because of their long-standing reputation as a soft team.

    Until that changes (which it did briefly with Barkley, then
    briefly with Maurice Lucas & Dennis Johnson), the Suns
    continue to be victims of bad officiating.

    Professional sports is also a form of paid entertainment,
    just like attending a concert. You can't separate that
    from the pure sport, which hardly describes pro sports.

    Morant must salivate when he sees Ayton switch on him.

    Jah should be a Sun. We just needed one more draft under the old rules.

    That is valid when playing demonstrably superior teams but it does not when they are playing teams in the lower half of the league, of which Memphis is.

    Damnit, damnit, damnit. It is because we are a softer team than Memphis.

    How many times are you going to overlook that point?

    They are 4th in pace. We’re not that much softer. And it shouldn’t matter. Soft or not, a foul is a foul. You act like they are like the 90s Knicks. One of their two big men is a soft Euro for crissakes!

    we don’t get foul calls because we’re a finesse team? What a joke.

    let me get this straight: we don’t get calls against good teams because we have been a bad team. But against not so good teams it’s because we’re soft? Ok.
