Chris has an excellent two man game with everybody but Ayton. The way he gets dudes open 3 point shots is amazing. Ayton is not moving in unison to get the open crease to get him the ball most of the time and when he does get it to him, 8 times out of 10, Ayton is not aggressive to the basket with it. I was hoping that Cleveland had a terrible start and released JAVAYLE MCGEE (Shaq voice), and he made his way here but he is doing well there and they are competing.

Yeah, but if someone can't play a PnR with CP - it's not CPs fault. That man is the numero uno maestro of this play in the last 2 decades.

He is a bit slower overall than I envisioned him on the Suns - not sure how much is that is age and how much is design. I guess it's a bit more age than we are comfortable to admit. I hope I'm wrong though.

If CP3 has helped Ayton turn the corner on his level of assertive play then he is worth every penny of his enormous contract. I don't think Rubio could have helped Ayton make that change.

Ayton had a number of offensive games like that last year and Rubio was throwing lobs. But I think that's the most blocks he's had. People just have short memories of a lot of Ayton's games last year for whatever reason.
