Worth every dime.

Not sure about it, he is a good a player but I would not pay him never over $10M.

He is not an starter material...ask to the Heat.



On a bad team starting through 6 games he is now averaging 19 ppg on 60% shooting. While on Boston with Brown, Tatum and Kemba who take most of their shots he had no chance to shine.

It's all Chris Paul though, take him away and we're barely a 35 win team at best.

Such a frustrating argument isnt it. take booker away and just have CP3 and we probably aren't that good either. Maybe we are better with just CP3 than just Booker but who knows.

Our success is a collective effort and we have some very talented players.

"That guy" that you're referring to was me, and you can call me by my account name I wont get my feelings in a bunch. By the way, I'm staying on my word and dont see Lakers falling into a play in game. No frickin way! They'll finish 6th seed and I pray to God Suns that Phoenix doesnt screw around and finish 3rd. We need top 2 seeds desperately.

Let's just be real and say we need both of our stars to excell. Take Booker away while having CP3 and we are competing for a play in game whether it's 7th, 8th, 9th or 10th seed I can't tell for certain. But both players work well for regular season and playoffs similar to Harden & Paul in Houston with a bunch of good role players. But at the end its Monty, the players and team chemistry that has us 2nd best record in the league. You take away Crowder and Saric and leave same team intact and we may be between 6th-8th seed instead of 2nd in the west.

I honestly didn’t remember who it was. Admittedly, the smart money is on Lakers 6th or better, but Dallas is fire lately, Portland is healthy, and who knows whether Lakers are even worried about dropping to play-in.

Lakers will def be play in, and they won't care. I haven't looked at how the play in will go this season, isn't it for 7+8? If so, can either lower seed jump to 7 or is it 7 plays 9 and 8 plays 10 for the final spots?

It'd be just our luck to get LA in the first round.

All good, just ribbing on you a bit. :lol:

You're correct in that Both Dallas and Portland have been on fire lately. I see Blazers continue to ride a hot streak while Mavs cool off a bit and finish 7th. Still see Lakers finishing 6th or below but if they manage to drop down to a play in then I'll definitely give you your props.

If the Lakers do indeed finish 7th and get a play in, Suns fans better pray that our team finishes first in the West.


https://www.nba.com/news/nba-play-in-tournament

Q: How will the Play-In Tournament be structured?

"At the conclusion of the regular season but before the first round of the playoffs, the team with the 7th-highest winning percentage in each conference will host the team with the 8th-highest winning percentage in a Play-In Game (the “Seven-Eight Game”). The winner of the Seven-Eight Game in each conference will earn the No. 7 seed."

"The team with the 9th-highest winning percentage in each conference will host the team with the 10th-highest winning percentage in the “Nine-Ten Game”. The loser of the Seven-Eight Game will host the winner of the Nine-Ten Game in a Play-In Game, and the winner of that game in each conference will earn the No. 8 seed."

Watched the first quarter so far, but it appears the Rockets played much harder than I expected.

Also watching Ayton's highlights it looks like they were going thru him late 2nd and 3rd quarters and he was dominating. As I have said in the Ayton thread I'm expecting more of this next season when they focus on his offensive game.

Ayton got to the line 8 times. We won. These were the best 2 things imho. Book booking and CP cooking also nice. Not much else to party about, I really wanted to see Smith with some meaningful time, that didn't happen ofcourse as we sunsd the begining of the 4th :)

It’s obvious we are holding back Smith… Saving him for the playoffs no doubt. We do not want other teams to get any kind of scouting info on him. Not that it would matter when trying to cope with the unfamiliar phenom. Mr Anonymous will soon be unleashed into fame.
What ? Me Worry ?
