    The timing is horrible indeed.

    Players like Morant do not come along very often and they are usually drafted early like Trae Young and Stephen Curry.

    Man did i love the kid. As much as I saw Zion as next level, I wasn’t going to be disappointed landing morant. His athleticism and speed is somewhat missing on this team. It would’ve added a level we don’t have.

    Another point 1Sun was just so ridiculously wrong about.

    Maybe Leque can develop. I was not sure about Morant early last year, but by draft time, I really wanted him.

    Raptors and rockets fan tonight. Need the Mavs and Wolves to lose games. Feel like we might be battling with those two teams the rest of the year. Unless Portland and the spurs continue to struggle...in which case suns, mavs and wolves all make the playoffs.

    Are we already seeing playoff and non playoff separation in the standings?

    8th seed and higher, 7 wins or more.

    9th and lower seeds, 5 wins or less.

    Thus far, I appear to have been very wrong about him indeed.

    Morant does look really really good, but IMO the Suns needed someone like Rubio, and I doubt we sign him if we'd drafted Morant. Rubio is a composed veteran, a great passer and a top tier defense guard. He is about as ideal of a pairing with Booker as imaginable.

    In a couple years... I think we'd be better off with Morant, but I don't think this franchise or this fan base had a couple more years of non-contention in them.

    That said... I still wish we'd taken Clarke at #11. But Cam is looking like a solid consolation prize.

    I am not worried about them at all.

    The suns are just better than the Mavs, Spurs, and Wolves.

    We get Ayton back and he plays like I think he will and we should be a top 5 team by everyone's standards.

    And Paul George has a PER of 57.19. It's insane that Leonard wasn't even playing.

    I guess the Rockets (10-3) aren't struggling like I thought they might as they beat the Timberwolves on the road.

    Harden had 49 points and 6 assists. Westbrook didn't play.

    I love Cam Johnson I actually think he’s going to be really good. We desperately needed shooters well we needed a lot of everything. But you can never have to many shooters

    And of course Boston has to lose a close one right before our game tomorrow...

    They will be very motivated, but on the 2nd of a back to back so if we can weather a possible early storm we should pull it out.
