Suns rolling. Should have put more money on the over 51.5 wins.
This is actually not stupid.
Who is playing center for the Dubs this year?
Who played center for the Dubs when they were winning championships?
Don't cheat and look at box scores. Their center of the future Wiseman has not even played this year and they are 11 and 1.
This league has been about which team has the best Wings for a while. While Giannis played center he plays like a wing in a 7 ' Body.
The best two players in the World arguably are Lebron and Durant over the past decade. The could be called anything from a PG to a Center depending on the need.
I do not dislike Ayton but if we could use his money for a legit All Pro wing you just have to do it. I have no idea who would be available and what team would noy resign someone that fits the bill. The Dubs appear to have hit the jackpot in getting Wiggins. When they add a healthy Klay Thompson to the mix they are going to be unbeatable.
When was the last time a team won the championship with their best player being a Center. Anthony Davis is and wants to be a PF.
Of course you can say what team is going to stop our rotation of bigs. If Ayton comes back healthy while we still get steady production out of Frank and McGee. We could be really tough once Booker gets his head out of his arse.
The Warriors are not good because they don't have a C or because of wings. Are you kidding? It's because they have one of the best players ever in Curry. And their second most important player is not a wing either. It's a great long defensive utility big in Draymond Green.
And before they added KD, one of the best players ever, to Curry, the team that won the championship and also the team that won 73 games the next year had Bogut at C who was an overall #1 pick great defensive C.
And of course, if you have a LeBron, KD, Curry, Giannis, Kawhi or Luka, that is what is going to make the difference, but that has little relevance on Ayton. Those are generational type players that are likely going to end up winning most of the championship..the superstars always have and always do.
Also, signing Ayton for less, doesn't mean you have money for a wing...we are over the cap by a lot. It doesn't create cap space.
No one seems to understand this. Even on his QO we don't have cap space to sign someone with savings...it just reduces the amount we are over the cap and/or into the tax.
I don't want to give him the max, but it would be nice to sign him for a nice 5 year contract for around what Bridges got per year or a little more.
If we could do an awesome S&T, that would be good.
Anyway, he's looked tough the last few times he's played too, with a 21/21 game and another 17/12/3 both of those on 75 or 80% shooting. We all know guys like McGee have a good game here and there and Frank will have a run of nice games like during our win streak last year but he's not consistent.
