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

I know it wouldn't happen, but if he reneged on SA and signed with us instead, that would be the best Suns/Spurs moment of all time....other than maybe the sweep in 2010.

More chance of guessing what Lady Gaga is wearing than who Ryan McDonough will sign.

Ronnie Price is back, looks like we targetted a 34% FG and 28% 3 point shooter and got him!

Mavs vs Clip is gunna be great cauz of the blood vendetta. It should be nationally televised to promote the rivalry.I'm sure Cuban will order Carlisle to employ the Hack-a-Jordan until every Mav on the active roster is fouled out and commit technicals as a formality. It would be great FT practice for DJ . Maybe just maybe he could shoot close to 50% from the charity stripe .

I was back on page 56 of this thread reading about how exciting the Jordan stuff was getting between LA and Dallas, and since I have been out of town in meetings all day I have been out of the loop, so I went to ESPN just now and they say it was posted 1 minute ago that Jordan spurns Dallas for Clippers, but then I come back here and you are talking like it happened a while ago. Crazy.

I don't think Aldridge will change his mind, but with this precedent, it could allow others to think "well, he did it...so I wouldn't feel bad about it." I mean in the movie Jerry Maguire the guy said his word was solid as oak and then changed his mind.

Oh, and since I just logged on again after being out for 12 hours, forgive me if I have a string of responses to old posts from hours ago as I go through them. Will be out for much of tomorrow too, at least earlier in the day.

According to a reputable source from Suns Insider(possibly me) we are signing Bargnani.That is the much awaited announcement

I like the Sonny Weems signing. Not a fan of Price at all. There are better PGs we could get. How many years is his deal for? How many guaranteed? I don't want his cap hit beyond this season.

Wish we could've signed someone new like Jimmer Fredette or Alexey Shved instead of a rehash like Ronnie freakin Price. But I think a lot of people like his work ethic and professionalism, which maybe is why he's back. Anyway, I like the Sonny Weems signing.:D

I feel your pain. Not for me, but for you. It seems to be coming through my laptop and making it shake.
