That sounds accurate. But it's no big deal. We disagree.
Hmm, I think you’re off on two items:
1. Ayton could remedy his touches if he learned how to effectively post up. It’s been pointed out all season how somehow saric and kaminsky are capable of establishing post position, sealing defenders, and catching passes. But Ayton not only can’t, he rarely makes an attempt to do so.
2. there were a LOT of layups last night. I mean look at the shot chart from last night quarter by quarter. https://www.espn.com/nba/game/_/gameId/401307848
You aren’t putting anything accurately. I explained my perceptions of Ayton’s impact on our teams success likely more precisely than anyone on the board at this point.
and I do hold book to a higher standard than Ayton. You don’t hold Ayton to any standard.
Exactly. There’s no one on the warriors that played last night remotely close to Ayton’s size and yet how many times can anyone recall him making himself effectively available in the post? Um I can’t recall many if any.
Because he’s not worth it. I can’t make him care. I can’t get worked up caring more than he does.
You also can’t calm Booker down when he goes mental. But you choose to worked up about it. Same thing. You’ve got a blind spot here.
How often does Booker go mental and it cost us a game? How often does Ayton sleepwalk through a game which also costs us games? You don't need to watch often see Ayton disappears far more often than Booker gets heated.
Also Booker getting mad doesn't always hurt us, some nights it gets the whole team fired up. When Ayton decides he doesn't feel like playing, it hurts everyone else because they have to try and cover his position as well as their own.
The Jazz really tried to hand us the 1 seed and we just pissed it away.
I don’t get worked up about Booker at all. Every once in awhile I’ll mention Booker at the end of games making bonehead choices or him letting his emotions get the better of him. Again I hold Booker and Ayton to two different standards.
but if your honestly trying to compare how I talk about Booker to how you two talk about Ayton your crazy.
seriously just to any Suns thread where we have lost and just count the Ayton post. I legitimately don’t even think you know how much you do it.
And with 4 games left I'm not sure we're done emptying our bladder just yet.
Isn’t it 3
Nobody told me there'd be a math quiz. Damn. And yes, 3 games.
Yeahhhhh... we’re stumbling bumbling fumbling toward the finish line here.
wouldn’t be the worst thing that if we were pissing away the 1 seed, to also piss away the 2 seed as well at this point. The Lakers are pretty stuck at 7/8 and although I think Portland has a solid shot to beat us in a series, I’d give us at least a punchers chance there as opposed to the Lakers.
It would be nice if they can turn it around, and win out.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 1 and done from this team.
however we are definitely moving in the right direction
