When the hell is our damn schedule going to be announced? I got stuff to plan next week but want to plan it around the freaking games!
Since a lot has been said about retaining Okogie this off-season, I found this interesting. Spotrac has him listed as the #18 SG available. Given his size he's listed as a SG when he's definitely more of a SF but wings are more interchangeable than they've ever been so I wouldn't get hung up on that. Whether you agree or disagree with his placement, I hope that's a sign of things to come and he's overpaid because spending all available cash to resign him would be a mistake. I like him but this team really needs to turn the MLE into 2 players and use the biannual exception, if it's available.
Heres the write up on Josh...
Okogie has been an outstanding story this season. After his career petered out in Minnesota, he's bounced back with the Suns. He's shot just well enough to complement his defense and that's kept him on the floor this year.
I feel like I’m occupying similar space. Next year is the year. This year whatever we get is gravy.Lots of people picking the Suns. Oddly, I don't feel pressure like in previous years. Not sure if it's confidence or maybe I consider this first playoff run with KD a bonus.
Mentally, I know they better take advantage of this moment. These guys might never all be healthy at once again.
For some reason I feel more insecure about next year although I think we have a legit shot no matter what happens this year. Why? Because of how things played out the last two years and what it might do to our player's heads if we go down 3 years running even though we have Durant. Factor in the uncertainty around Paul and KD staying healthy for an entire season.
I get this too. The one thing though that is different? We didn't have to redesign our team to fit him in since we had a mid-range style offense he just plugs into. I get it though.I just can’t expect a team that’s only played 8 games together to be the machine a championship team needs to be to win it all.
He may be. But on the other side of the equation you have a tendency to overrate every end of bench guard we’ve had in the roster over the past few years. You also have tendency to see a PG in every guard we sign, whether or not they have any definitive PG skills.I think you are underestimating Saban Lee.
Yeah I legit have no expectations because if you told me we lost in round 1 or we won a title, I’d believe either scenario lol. What I do expect though is if we do lose, don’t go out like chumps like we did last year. That was embarrassing.
