One of the stats the play by play people talked about in the last Houston game, is the Suns are NINTH in the league in blocked shots. I still can't wrap my head around that stat!

Idk if that’s a good thing. We’re still playing an outdated version of the game. We still don’t get buckets at the basket or shoot 3s everything is still hard. This was Bill Simmons argument against us years ago when CP3 was running the show.

Yup. Wearing that stat as some kind of badge of honor is a weird choice considering what… the last decade of NBA basketball favoring 3s and moving away from the mid game?

Booker's timeline to return is now 7 to 10 days. This might be the nail in the proverbial coffin.

The only upside is how bad Memphis has been this season means we'll keep our own pick this year. They had the right to swap picks with us but I guess we could end up winning the lottery. Wouldn't that be the ultimate Arizona sports moment though?

This draft is really weak, at least in terms of top end talent. It might have some depth but there are no real standout prospects.

I'm not going to get too worked up about the 15th man.

There are no players even close to being a difference maker out there for us.
Ish bring nothing to the table so why bother?

Gambo was saying the Suns went to Ish after Milton chose the Knicks. So, sounds like they wanted Milton but couldn't get him.

Couldn't get Torrey Craig at the deadline so they got Diet Torrey Craig off the scrap heap.

Suns are waiving Theo Maledon to make room for Ish. Odd, I'd think they'd just convert Saban.

I sure thought it would be worse than that.

You know I just don't buy it being the nail in the coffin - This team hasn't played well enough to beat a good team all year when healthy or not.

The injuries are just an excuse, this team isn't good enough. Yes a lot of that is IMO coaching, but that isn't going to change.
