    Gobert is one of my favorite players. Impact monster.

    Shouldn't Devin's banner go over a Suns championship banner, instead of one of the Mercury's three?

    Oh, the Suns don't ... have ... a ... league ... championship ... banner. :rolleyes:

    If only Booker was as good in real life as he is at that video game.

    Now we know why they're not winning, too much video game time instead of court time.

    Hope Booker and Ayton's chemistry in the game carries over to the court. I would think the mental part of the game might have some carryover.

    Feel for KAT right now. I know it was mentioned in another thread about how his mom was in a medically induced coma due to complications from COVID-19 and unfortunately she has passed away now.

    Feel for Booker also. I know he spoke highly of KAT's parents and about how he was trying to be there for Towns even though he's stuck in Phoenix.

    It's a sad situation for sure with Karl-Anthony Towns and family. So sorry to hear about it.

    Another loss, this time for the Trail Blazers.

    Julius Randle appears to be available in trade.

    True interior power forwards are a dying breed...

    Not because they don't exist, but because the modern game has made them useless. The Knicks strategy of loading up on interior players created an offense that looked like a clogged toilet, now they are desperate to flush.

    I wouldn't take Randle for free, he would fix none of our issues.

    I think if Randle could not be the focus of the offense then he'd be a solid pick up, which he be the #4/5 option in a suns starting lineup. If he can add a consistent mid range jumper then he could be solid pick up. Randle making he decisions on offense isn't a good thing as well as him jacking up 3pt shots, which has had more of a chance to do while in NY.
