Discussion in 'Phoenix Suns' started by Mainstreet, Nov 30, 2020.
Suns will start season on December 23rd playing the Mavericks on national television, ESPN.
LeBron will play into his 40's, barring a serious injury. He's gone on record about wanting to play with his son in the NBA and his son is currently 16, I believe.
I'm sure some team will be drafting Bronny to match him with Lebron. He should still be a very good player for years to come. It might be fun to watch.
Ayton and Book are up for Media tomorrow.
Absolutely. Let's talk Suns!
Those are stats before the end of the season. He ended with 7.8 3PA per 36 and 39%. Not that it makes much of a difference. That is also way too specific to really mean a whole lot.
I turned the numbers down a bit to more closely match his end of season stats and got the following list.
Maybe it was the lighting in the room I watched the D Book interview in today, but he wore a jacket that matched the background exactly. So he looked like a floating head when I watched it!! LOL!
As long as it wasn't a Lakers jacket!
Who comes in when cp3 goes out? I'm curious what you guys think the substitution patterns will be.
It is a lot tougher this season because we have rookie and some vets who could be contributors right away.
Last season, it was eh, lets try to give Okobo or Jerome some playing time to develop them.
I think Dario and Cam Johnson are clear rotation players. Saric should be the first sub for Ayton, Johnson for Bridges, and either Johnson or Saric at the 4 depending on the matchup. I'm assuming Smith is brought along slowly.
The tougher area to predict (of course) is the guard rotation. I think Cam Payne has the most upside and I am hoping he wins the battle to be the first guard off the bench. There's a good chance he doesn't though, and if that happens my best guess would be that the first guard off the bench would then change based on the situation.
For now, I'll guess:
Minutes at the 1- Paul (30), Payne (12), Booker (3), Galloway (3)
Minutes at the 2- Booker (32), Moore (10), Galloway (3), Carter (3)
Of course, all those mpg averages should go up thanks to injuries and COVID.
Some new flooring to go along with the new jerseys. It may take me awhile to adapt to the flooring design.
Dario Saric decided he wanted to stay with Suns when he was home in Croatia.
Separate names with a comma.
