The fake brother of Miles Bridges. He's been in the league three seasons, played 227 games and started 160, surprised you've never come across him, lol


tbh just an exaggeration on my part lol I thought this bridges was a bust. He wasn't making any noise and I never took interest in him. The other bridge is a diff story.


Hes always been an elite 3+D guy. Ever since he was drafted his ideal role was a 3rd/4th option on a contender.
Unfortunately the Suns have been so bad before this season that he hasnt been able to play to his strengths.

Wouldve been ideal for the Philly team, funnily enough.


Would have been ideal for any team. Elite 3 and D guys are useful in any lineup and he was a lock to be one.

I was happy when we drafted him and less happy when we immediately moved him, even though I thought getting the extra pick was good value.
jonjames is a signature bet welcher.

I feel like Gordan / Millsap should be having a bigger impact in this series for the Nuggets.

His defense has always been great, but this year's improvement has been the offense. and it's not just the 3 either, it's the drives, the midrange and the overall boost to his confidence

Gordon was great in game 1 but Millsap is shot. Dunno what to expect from him at this stage of his career. His swan song was igniting the 3-1 comeback against the Clips in game 5 3rd quarter after Marcus Morris got in his face and he didnt back down

I swear the Nuggets are gonna get cooked quick especially b/c of Chuck guaranteeing victory for the Nuggets. Just do the opposite of what he does and you'll be all right. Man didn't want to jinx his Suns.



He didn't want no smoke with KD!

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


Stop it CN. We the bad a$$ Suns. It’s time to get a little cocky and prop up our fellas.

I think unless he's secretly a devil worshipper, the diet is at least a contributing factor. And if he wins the title, the vegan people should definitely use him as a spokesperson

Isn't that telling?

The guy just turned 36 and torched Denver for 38/26 over two games while recording only 2 turnovers and shooting close to 60% from the field.

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

Not a fan of those Suns Jerseys. Wish they would go back to the Barkley Suns jerseys instead.

Watched the whole game. As a Nugget fan, I'm very disappointed. Not because we got outplay both defensively and offensively, but because of the lack of energy, hustle, and heart from our players.

The series is not over yet. But we do need more energy in the next 2 games.

More like "it sucked to lose like that but at least we're finally making a long overdue coaching change and hopefully some other long overdue changes".

I actually agree with him. The 90s sunburst jerseys were the best. The Valley ones aren't ugly, but they don't look like the Suns. The team's colors are purple and orange, but the current braintrust is obsessed with black.

When they show shots of the Suns crowd you see tons of people wearing the 90s stuff despite those being several iterations ago. It's what fans really want.

Congratulations to Suns for the way they played and won both games. Good for you that CP3 is healthy. Mikal Bridges was pleasant surprise for me, he basicity turned over game one singlehandedly, CP3 and Book took over from there. Cam Payne was really good to. The others CP3, Ayton, Book are who I thought they are and Crowder showed again his worth.
As for the Nuggets with MPJ in this condition this doesn't look good. It is not just his shooting it is the way he is moving. He is not a good defender as we all know but not this bad. Anyway don't be surprised in confidence we show on this board because you can never count Nuggets team with Jokic out, that is as sure thing as death and taxes.
