This is CP3’s title run. We’re just along for the ride. And I’m more than fine with that.
I like CP3, and want to see him get a title, but I really feel defensive that this is Book's team! Don't know why, but I feel like CP3 has been here a hot minute, while Devin has literally bled for us. CP3 will come and go, but Devin is our guy!

this is absolutely not Booker’s team. This is CP3’s team... just like the 93 Suns weren’t were Barkley’s team, not KJ’s. And even KJ had a much better claim to the 93 team considering he had led the Suns to the playoffs four years in a row with 2 WCF appearances compared to zero playoff appearances for Booker and the rest of the young guns.

as CP3 gets older, we’ll see that transition more and more to Booker where eventually he becomes total alpha dog, but that’s not who he is here. He’s following CP3’s lead, just like the rest of these young guys who are kicking ***.

NBA Finals: How Suns’ Monty Williams has evolved as a coach to lead his team to the Finals

PHOENIX – As his team gathered together for a morning shootaround, Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams offered a message.

Why wouldn’t he? The Suns were about to play in the NBA Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks, the franchise’s first Finals' appearance in 28 years and the first for the majority of the Suns’ coaches and players.

Williams found no need, however, to deliver a fiery speech or offer another detailed scouting report. Instead, Williams told his players, “Go hoop; ya’ll know what to do.”

This is a great article other than the fact that they have William’s hat contents backwards.

Williams has often appeared in press conferences wearing a hat with the message “WS > WD” a knockoff of Ben Franklin’s familiar message that "Well done is better than well said.”

The writer must have flunked math in school.

There's another name ill rarely use. At least Sarver got paid, hopefully that will help offset some of the cash he'll need to shell out this offseason.

I will gladly accept and use the name Footprint Center if it helps us become plastic free over time.
