Please keep doubting the Phoenix Suns.

We haven't won the series yet. No need for this


Its ok for my realgm bros to have the balls to come back in and say wow, I was wrong. The Suns are very good. But I like it, the more the Suns are doubted the better they seem to do.

To you Mr Mod: Sorry if I'm overly vindictive, its been a long 11 years bruh....

The media hate Jokic, what are you talking about..

That's an oxymoron. You can't say the media hates a certain player but then he wins MVP. Awards are mainly media narrative driven.

Probably the same thing Heat fans are saying watching the Bucks get completely owned.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

I thought the Nuggets would really beat on the Suns. Didn’t think Phoenix was good enough. Looks
like its the other way around. Props to Phoenix. Yes, Denver is not at full strength, but the Suns can only play who’s put in front of them.

You mean the 84 media folks who just voted him MVP? They're the ones that hate him?

Wasn’t he the guy that Philly drafted in 2019 then traded down for some guy who hasn’t played a game?

Denver isn't this bad and will play better at home and will shoot better, but I think the Suns defense is really impressive so far, none of those extended mental lapses we saw at times in the regular season so far. Suns fans I get why we are happy but there's no reason to get overly cocky. I want to see some closer games personally the Suns need the experience of facing those one or two possession games

Not the way to celebrate winning an MVP.

Its Rnd 2, so it wouldn't have the Dirk 2006 stink, but you really don't want to win MVP then get swept out, let alone dominated out.

:lol:

Adam Silver was E.T. as a kid and grew up to be lord Voldemort.

I swear I want CP3 to beat the Nets in the finals and watch the internet roast James Harden and the big 3 Nets in ways the Clippers never could. KD would be beefing with everybody on the internet, Kyrie would lose it and Harden's ego wouldn't withstand the thought of losing to the guy he drove out of Houston.

Anything's possible, but if the Clippers advanced and lose to CP3 and the aforementioned scenario happened It'd be almost Dirk like.

Personally I'd rather they keep blowing teams out and gain more blowout experience.

Denver has a bright future but should be wary with sticking with the core if it's not good enough, and pull the trigger sooner than later.

Too bad we won't know how much of a good team their team is this year because of the Murray injury. Jokic is playing godly still but can't do it alone.


Jokic and Gordon are as good as they'll ever be. Murray and MPJ have room for improvement.

The Nuggets will be fine.


As consistent playoff contenders yes definitely. As title contenders though?

I love Jamal Murray but he is not walking through that door. Suns are way too much for the Nuggs right now. This is a sweep.
