I'm not knocking the guy's game but the Suns are exposing them. He could barely run down the court at that was near the end of the first quarter. He gets his stats no doubt. He is great no doubt. I just don't believe he makes his team better. Maybe next game he will.

We must have been watching different games.

horrible rebounding night by Ayton he only got 15 tonight
He's also a product of being the only big man on the court. Saric would have had 10-15 with Ayton minutes. IMO, dude could easily have 20-25 in a game like tonight with a little extra hustle. He seems to have the same stamina as Jokic though...so it makes sense.

I still can't get over how the 4 other starters could equal 32 points, 20 boards, or 10 assists combined. He was their team tonight.

Jokic literally tried to carry that team on his back.

He's a good player. But trying to put him up there with Olajuwan, Shaq, Malone..


NO. Those guys would have wiped the floor with him. IMHO
Funny thing about the Shaq mention is that Shaq himself said “Big Country” Bryant Reeves used to kill him every matchup. Joker is the way better version of that. Take that for what you will.

I never understood that even at the time. James did a whole bunch of fancy back-and-forth dribbling while Crowder said "Uh huh?" and waited for him to do something meaningful. It was like watching a peacock go through a big courting display to a plastic statue.
