Green font?

Of course not! Just ask on GB, everybody will tell you Booker is a statspadder who can't win games.

Trash player. Almost anyone in the league can efficiently score 50 points in back to back games in a losing effort.

But it's the smart decision. We need Book, Aton, TJ, Oubre healthy for next year AND we may as well tank out the season to keep the #2 slot (it limits how far we can fall in the draft even though 1,2,3 all have the same odds).

I guess I'll get drunk and watch Josh Jackson make turnover after turnover and then yell: "That wasn't my fault!" :roll: :lol:


I agree. It's still important where you finish, it's not just like: "Oh, I don't care, it's 14% for the first three seeds, who cares for the order!" I have seen people writing this all over the forum all the time.

It really limits your worst lottery outcome.

Two of three games remaining are against tanking teams, should be interesting. :lol:

As for Booker, he's a great player and a ball-hog/stat padder at the same time(shoots or tries to draw a foul going against four defenders with 20s on the clock). But that's now the case with every star in the league, so you either like it or not.

Disappointed not to see Devin on this list. It would have been awesome for him to play with high level players and show he can contribute to winning basketball...and also show he is WAY better than Donovan Mitchell

Looks like he might not be in camp this year.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!-H.S.T.

Not sure why. Did he not get an invite? If not, why? I still think it would be great for him to participate and be around those high profile guys and network with them. Try to bring some to the Valley.

Oh well...

He worked out with them last Summer. Seems strange they'd move on from him for the likes of Eric Gordon and Mitchell.

There are lots of top guys not on it.

I think a lot of players didnt want to participate this year. I don't mind it for Devin. Less of a workload and he can work with the new coach and players in Phx this summer

Disappointed with Booker out.

I love that PJ Tucker is on the team for now.

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

Good move. Book should get a mini apartment/Suite in the facility.

Savvy move by Sarver to get his main man involved in the process

I agree, it is rather weird he isn't attending. Maybe he's working really hard in the offseason....on releasing a custom shoe :roll:
