    Suns play the 76ers on Tuesday. Never good to see a player lost this way.

    Our game and the Clippers/Portland game are the only relevant games today. And the Clippers did what they were supposed to. It's up to us now.

    MJ Warren with a dagger in Lebron’s mug. Another 40 burger.

    Finalists for all individual NBA Awards have been named. No real surprises.

    I'll go Giannis MVP, Ja for ROY, Giannis for DPOY, Shroeder for 6th Man, and Bam for Most Improved.

    I think Luka will win Most Improved but he shouldn't. He's in his 2nd season and young players should improve. He was a great rookie and even better sophomore but I think a leap like he made wasn't out of the question based on those who watched him last year. Meanwhile Bam became an All-Star with the Heat, which I don't think anyone envisioned. He's a huge part of the Heat's future and proves Pat Riley is still a genius.

    Mavs take out the Bucks in OT. Luka was unstoppable... once again. Depressing

    that pass between his own legs on the pick and roll for the dunk was filthy.

    every team that passed on Doncic in the draft made a mistake. Dude’s already staking his claim to being one of the best offensive players ever... and he’s 20.

    29/9/9... at 20. Dude is a modern day Magic with more of a scorer’s edge. The rebounding and scoring numbers are what have surprised me most.

    Yup, and I was wrong on this one. I actually thought Doncic would be a prima donna and flash for the sake of flash, a la Jason "White Chocolate" Williams. Plus I thought he was overhyped coming out of Europe. I didn't think his game would translate to the NBA, and I thought he would look closer to what we have seen thus far out of Ty Jerome. Turns out Doncic is the real deal and has the "it" factor on top of it.

    I maintain that if Ayton had more drive, heart and toughness, his talent level alone would make his pick justifiable as akin to Hakeem over MJ. Unfortunately, those key traits seem lacking in Ayton, at least a decent percentage of the time.
