JC, our window slammed shut when the Suns said it was an “internal decision” to bench DA.

sad, but so true
those 2 words were the proclamation of the end of another Suns group with real championship potential
destined to end like when Amare moved on, or Joe Johnson before that
and Barkley to Houston before that

we knew in that moment we would never realize the potential of Ayton
or get back something equitable in trade
and instead of getting better next season
our forward momentum was about to reverse

that's the only reason i'm open to surrendering to the Durant trade
if not for the Ayton drama, and now losing McGee
i'd be happy to let my chips ride on Cam J, Bridges, and Ayton stepping up to another level next season

Flex tomorrow "sources state that Durant may be house shopping in Paradise Valley. He might buy a house but maybe he loves it rather than lists it"
Addendum “it could happen but things are fluid. It might not.”

I called this with my buddies back in early May and I didn't bet it like a *******. Right now if you are one of those at 5000 - 1 you have hedging.

KD averaged 30ppg on 20 shots last year plus 7 boards/6assists. He can pretty much do whatever he wants on a basketball court but the injuries/age do scare me. Unless you’re completely ripping apart all of the depth you gotta go for it.
