Sick one handed dunk. If only coronavirus hadn't existed the whole building of 18,000 fans would be going crazy and chanting " MVP MVP MVP".

Are Booker and Cam Jo considered to be athletic? From time to time these seemingly unathletic players would throw down some thunderous dunks out of no where.
He is the Aytonator, a sophisticated Basketball-Robot sent through time to destroy the future for one very unlucky franchise - my Phoenix Suns.

No way that happens if by slight chance it does, grumpy would report the whole team for stalking.

Book got some sneaky in him in the last 2 years for sure. Before that he was not in his athletic prime, and might even had a little remaining "babyfat", but last year and this he threw down a couple nasty ones that we haven't seen from him previously.

Cam is long, and he is using his body right, so whatever athletic abilities he has, he uses them 100% right, so that helps him with a couple of dunks.

Not much to say about the game. Good game fellas, took care of it as you should have, in convincing fashion. I hope there will be a couple more of these so Stix can get his sea legs a bit under him.

Booker definitely has some sneaky hops. He’s had some real nice dunks in his career including one on Anthony Davis.

And Pokusevski is who we hoped Bender would be. :) The guy had some comical plays early in the season and sometimes can't hit the rim on his 3s, but he's certainly not lacking skill and plays with confidence.

Many good things out of this game. Booker keeps playing like a top 3 SG in the league, CP3 with a perfect shooting night and 12ast in around 20 mins. Crowder and CJ are hitting their 3s after the 0/15 fiasco.

I also find it funny they screen for Ayton on the first play for a lob, but won't do it during the game for a few open shots.

I think grumpysaddle would prefer only Kaminsky showing up and perhaps doing a dance for him on his birthday lol.

Great dunk. Ayton's reaction was also nice. He saw it coming even before Book threw it down.

I’m glad to see Jerome is still in the league. Thought he would be out by now. Still looks very slow when he plays and has no athletic traits really. His 3pt shooting %s are nice though and may keep him in the league longer than I thought.

Carter took those cookies rather easily though.

Anoooooother terrific game, we are so great that sometimes our games are even boring. :lol:

MVP Book is here to stay. I really think he can score over 30 ppg with nice efficiency during his prime.

CP3 put a show in just 20 minutes. His handles are ridiculous and he is probably the best mid-range shooter that I have seen in my **** life. You are always surprised when that shot does not go in.

All the team played well, nothing to say about it. The first quarter was an orgy of pure basketball.

No, it is a respect thing.

Moore is a solid veteran who does not need to play in garbage minutes to show nothing.

Booker 30 points, 0 turnovers.

Type of efficiency that can be the difference when it's star vs star in playoffs.

Sometimes I like to pretend that Dario is Bender because I feel like that's the type of player he could have turned into. If only the Suns hadn't whiffed on so many top picks. Imagine another legit young talented player added to this roster... :cry:

I was high on Hayes and Pokusevski with our pick for some time though mostly uninterested in this draft. Hayes has not been good so far, but Poku is doing well. He looks much more fluid and a better ball-handler than Bender. The commentators compared him to Kukoc because of the shooting and passing skills. Such player fits perfectly next to Ayton and on any team in general. That skinny frame though is a big concern.

This is the wall-to-wall beat down I’ve been waiting for the Suns to lay on one of these struggling teams. Great game! Chicken soup for the soul.

Side note - What in the name of Soul Glo was going on with Kenrich Williams hair?
