    I think playoff games, we will still be entertained by and it will be a good watch, but in comparison to ones will fans, will not compare.

    That said, I am thrilled to have it back. Clearing a wide gap in my day tomorrow to watch the Suns. Hopefully we light up the Wizards, teams infront of us suck tomorrow and the team gives Oubre the green light.

    We have tv issues our big tv apparently has come "expanded" capacitors on the power board problem so it keeps turning itself off and then back on so I gave up watching last night. If the new power cord doesn't fix it then getting a new tv. The bits i did see the big issue for me was the camera angle, it was really like watching summer league or HS games where the camera angle is just not very good.

    I guess I haven't been following closely I had no idea Zion was going to be that limited in minutes, and that out of shape he basically cost them the game. they were -16 in the 15 minutes he played.

    Obviously Lonzo going 2-13 didn't help them but basically Zion's minutes cost them the game and the bit I did see him play he was winded almost instantly, clearly not in shape.

    Even though it nearly went in the last play for me is why I'm not a huge Brandon Ingram fan. I'm sure that was the design of the play but he completely settled for a stepback 3 instead of trying to get to the rim and draw a foul. I'm a contrarian there I know you want your best guy to take the shot but if you're going to take a 3 I'd run a play to get an open one not a contested off the dribble one. If Lonzo had even remotely been making shots the obvious play would have been he inbounds fakes a cut and then goes back and gets the 3, the way teams guard them he's going to get the most open look and that side of the court is his favored shooting spot but he was 2-13 so I'm sure they didn't even consider running the play for him and probably the right call.

    Nice to see basketball again, if the new power cord doesn't work I'll be getting a 50 inch tv either this weekend or early next week. The current LG is 47 inch, got it in 2013 seemed huge then now not so much. Still like the tv but just not worth trying to get the power board replaced if that's it. From Google it sounds like that's our issue, capacitors on the power board expanded.

    I've watched a lot of practices, high school/college basketball and G-League games where there were not a lot of fans. I do like to hear sound related to basketball and a good announcer but crowd noise does not make the game for me as much as quality of play. Of course I generally have some kind of rapport to the team I'm watching.

    I think a general background crowd murmur along with a good announcer and some reasonably timed music would help.

    Kellan Olson on twitter said Oubre was out today but I have not seen any reports as yet to confirm it.

    It will be a lot of fun to watch a regular season game again and see if they have made any progress.

    He's definitely out. He still has not practiced 5 on 5 with the team.

    Basically unless there becomes a legit chance suns can make the 9 seed like 5 or 6 games in, I don't think he will play.

    There is no reason to believe Oubre will play today. I am a bit surprised I've yet to see other twitter sources say the same thing.

    Mo Bamba had been bragging about putting on 28 pounds "of muscle" during the break. Man, saw him briefly in the Orlando game, that ain't muscle big guy, he got tubby. He was already a fringe player before the flab but he seems to have eaten his way out of Orlando's rotation.

    Trey Burke came off the bench to put up 31 for the Mavs tonight. It's kind of lame that the Suns took a pass on even looking at him for backup PG.

    Yeah, I can't remember how many times I pushed for this move.

    TJ Warren is going nuts. 50 POINTS! in a big matchup with the Sixers. Dude is a key member of a solid Pacers squad that could be a really tough out with Oladipo and if Sabonus comes back. And Brogdon does also. Man... when healthy, they’ve accumulated a lot of solid talent.

    I still can’t believe we had to GIVE UP a 2nd round pick to move him. That was really bad asset management. I hope we don’t find ourselves doing the same with Oubre.

    IF there really is an issue with Oubre and we’re forced to trade him, I really hope we get something solid of value back because to go from really deep at the 3 with Warren, Bridges and Oubre to possibly just Bridges just wouldn’t be good for a team starved of talent at other positions.
