    My attention span is too short to know who they are. In general I don't recall people defending everything he does but I may have skipped a post or two in some of these threads.

    SQUIRREL!

    Being an AZ fan is why i was never completely sold on him. I remember like 2-3 games from his season there.

    Sorry I was over inclusive. There are two in particular that are no wrong in Ayton.

    I never thought James Harden would be that good in the NBA when he played at ASU and we know how that turned out.

    His first two seasons in the league were nothing special. Plenty of time for Ayton to improve as well.

    Ditto. I thought Harden would be a serviceable NBA player. I would be lying if I said I had any idea how dominate he could be at the next level.

    There really aren't

    Most folks acknowledge Ayton's suspension mistake and on-court deficiencies in aggression, ballhandling, etc. and are fully aware Luka is the better player but we also realize that a 21-year kid averaging 16/10 with plus defense doesn't suck and should not be the focus of criticism for this team. You can't even say something clearly obvious like "Ayton should be shooting more 3's" without that being used to criticize. Fact is he's the 3rd best player on the roster by a pretty wide margin.

    I guess Ayton just needs to be more like Baynes and be animated and yell and scream for no reason so everyone can like him despite the glaring lack of efficiency and output.

    Ayton was in Tucson for like six months and got blown out by Buffalo in the first round. And I wanted to draft Bagley.

    Yuck. I think I had Bagley like... 6th or so. I don't think he will ever be anything of note. Thus far he has been really... really... bad.

    Getting back on topic, I wouldn't hate getting Kevin Love if it was just Johnson(s) and filler. Don't see a scenario in which a top FA comes here anyways this season or next.

    Anything to get the mediocrity of Saric outta there. We have so many areas needing
    improvement, even one move might start things back in the right direction.

    Then a backup Point Guard. And a backup Center.

    Yeah, I'd do 5 Cam Johnsons for 1 KAT in a heartbeat...

    Not to mention Kendall Marshall, Markeiff Morris, Tyler Ennis, Alex Len and Earl Clark.

    Man, no wonder we have sucked so badly. Our drafting has been historically awful over a very long period of time.
