Has anything substantial come out yet? I mean I haven't followed it very closely but all I read was this recording which doesn't really exactly prove much of anything..

“Ayton is on campus. Sean’s got to get the (expletive) out of the way and let us work,” Richardson says on the recording.

“We’ll see how Sean plays it out,” Dawkins says.

“You know what he bought per month?” Richardson asks Dawkins.

“What (did) he do?” Dawkins says.

“I told you, 10,” Richardson says.

“He’s putting up some real money for them (N-words),” Dawkins says. “He told me he’s getting killed.”

“But that’s his fault,” Richardson says.

Follow the $$

Ayton might have increased his tax exposure. There are limits on cash gifts and they need to be reported. May be its subpoena time for DA?

The Feds had these recordings almost two years ago. Miller and Ayton were both investigated by the FBI and neither implicated in the original report as paying/receiving money.

I know. Back then I even said it wouldn't be hard to investigate the money back then and if there was anything substantial, it seems it would come out. Seems like it's just all the exact same recordings that were leaked before.

At the end of the day it comes back to Miller being an idiot for keeping Book around so long. If the NCAA comes down on him he has nobody to blame but himself, even without direct proof that he broke rules.

As far as money changing hands.... had to be a bag man involved. Odd no dough trail has turned up though.

It seems like in the circles that may know, all pretty much accept the dirty deed, with the caveat that it’s common practice / standard behavior

He's definitely a unique type of dude. Not saying it's bad or anything just different.

Would love for them to have asked a follow up on his 'building something different' comment.

'Sarver says he's a good guy' ... and Ayton imediately regrets saying that.
His body talks a lot.
Ayton is a weirdo, but u can see why he's a 3. Very talkative and goofy to win the crowd and avoid tough questions.
Mikal Bridges & Elie Okobo fan. :D

On offseason: “Offseason has been pretty good. Starting up not too hard, but easing back into it. It’s fun, but I’m super sore right now.”

On playoffs: “I’m watching it here and there, but I’m watching (for film). I’m not really watching it for entertainment. I’m watching the stuff I can take away what certain guys’ bread and butter every time in the playoffs. Yeah, it’s World War III as you guys can tell, especially in the West. So it’s amazing. The refs are letting us play.”  

On rookie season: “It could’ve been better. I could’ve set the bar pretty high, but it is what it is. I learned from it. Total different beast next season.”

On Giannis Antetokounmpo: “Giannis is destroying it. I don’t know what somebody did to him, but yeah, he’s doing a great job. He’s on a mission. He’s attacking the rim fearlessly. Unstoppable. He’s going his thing. Everything that he worked for or what we’ve seen the whole season, he hasn’t stopped yet.”

On scouting draft picks: “That’s a lot. That’s the front office. They got that. My head hurts just thinking about the lottery. They got that one.”

On Olvera wanting the Suns to pick Zion Williamson if they land the top pick: “He’s a good luck charm. He might bring Zion in here and have him break every rim in this gym.”

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

All the bitching about how we should have drafted Trae or Luka and Ayton almost ties both in voting DESPITE not being used properly this year.

He also is BY FAR the best big man drafted.

I'm happy with our choice. He's going to be good.
