Yeah... I ain’t getting Suns pass this year. They’re on national TV another 29 times this season and I feel like the Ayton contract thing being up in the air and him looking like... well, Ayton, prob don’t need to blow the extra dough this season.

Doesn’t mean I’m giving up on the team as I’m sure someone will say. But between being vaccinated and not needing so many hours killed like I did during the height of the pandemic and just wanting to be out of my house more, the extra expense might not be worth it this year.

Play Stix. He can't play worse.

Did you check because mine renewed automatically. My wife’s asked me what did you buy from the NBA and I was like not a damn thing.

Stix not looking to bad. I think we should give him Nadars minutes.

As others have mentioned we started out 1-5 in 2007 and finished with 61 wins. Not a big deal right now.

McCullah is destroying us.

philly Is dumb if he is available for Simmons and they aren’t doing it.
Neil Olshay will never trade CJ, he is way too in love with him. The Raptors offered Siakam and VanVleet for CJ and Olshay turned it down. He also said he never actually engaged in a Simmons trade, but I don't see that ever happened.

Stix probably didn't get credit for all his blocks, but he was erasing some shots.

Can someone explain why we had to play road games on b2b nights but only have two games over the next ten days?
Yeah, 3 games in 4 days followed by 1 game in 6 days. I guess the league was afraid we'd find our rhythm early.

Ayton starts the game with lots of energy like in LA. Hopefully he will get rewarded.
This aged poorly. He was awful on both ends of the court. He mainly jogged from the top of the key to the top of the key. Maybe he got a little cardio tonight bc he sure didn’t play basketball. And man was his defense putrid.
