We had Paul playing at an MVP level AND Booker playing All-NBA level.
You continuing to ignore this is hilarious.
The idea that the Suns could build a really deep team, sans All-Star level players outside of Book and win a title is preposterous and as usual, an argument without evidence.
Huh? In the other thread I literally listed the players responsible for our run the last two years. Evidently, you missed that. Oh...and a theoretical build without evidence? Really dude? OK. LOL. You have no idea who they could get to play alongside Booker. We already landed CP3. I would imagine they might be able land another similar player to play alongside him to give us another shot in a trade or something. CP3 as good as he played for us isn't CP3 in his prime. You are acting like he was.
No. The difference is absolutely that the Bucks had a HOF legend level player playing at the peak of his powers. AND they STILL had TWO more All-Stars.
We have nothing close to that level of legend OR all-stars so you’re comparison makes no sense.
Again..huh? I said Superstars
. Not Allstars. To me they are different levels. Lots of players become all-stars in this league but never are as good as the LeBron's, KD's, etc. You don't need two superstars to win a title IMO. It's been done plenty of times with one and at least one all-star caliber player playing alongside. CP3 is a hall of famer but he is no longer in his prime. He is still good enough, when healthy, at the tail end of his career, mixed with Ayton playing out of his mind in the playoffs and Bridges playing really well to almost get it done. I would LOVE to have 2 superstars here. It would make it much easier for sure but very few teams have 2 superstars. That's why I was disagreeing with so many people that didn't believe KD was the right move. Very few teams EVER get the opportunity to have two players like Book and KD on the same team.
