It’s not like they have to hire a coach before the draft. I really don’t care who the coach is as long as he knows how to call timeouts!!

KD was hardly worn down last season, between Suns and Nets...and all you have to do is look at their career injury histories to know that they will both likely miss games this season. Booker has averaged 66 games per season for his career, with 4 being his least amount of games ever missed, in his 2nd year. Durant has averaged 65 games per year for his career. It's almost laughable that we would count on either of them to stay healthy, because history shows they can't. This team is toast without significant bench depth, for when the inevitable happens and 1 or 2 starters are needed to fill in.exactly.
I'd like to add....
And can draw up an effective play out of timeout
And can make adjustments on the fly
And can make effective use of Ayton (if he's still around)
And can make use KD more than just standing at the 3 point line awaiting a pass
And use Shamet minimally (God forbid he's still here)
And not wear down KD/Book all season
Did I miss anything?
BTW, if Book or KD miss large chunks of time this upcoming season, the Suns are absolute toast.
Yes, this! Watching the Suns this year reminded me of 90's NBA, where your big PF would post up and dominate (Barkley), while everyone cleared the key. Unfortunately the Suns don't have a big, like Barkley, who can physically dominate the 1 on 1 consistently.And can come up with offensive schemes that are more sophisticated than “get the ball to Booker/Durant and hope they outplay their defender one on one”.
"They didn't jump on my Suns-Kevin Young thing," Simmons said on the latest episode of The Bill Simmons Podcast. "He's getting the Suns job. That's what I keep telling people on the podcast. He's getting the job. It's gonna be Kevin Young - he will be the next Suns' coach. But don't listen to me."
Bill Simmons on his Monday podcast made it very clear that Kevin Young is our new head coach. He basically squashed any chance that he was wrong and made it sound like he was holding 4 aces.
With what he knew about Ishbia before his name was floated anywhere...... I believe him.
