Puke should've been letting Randle let it fly when things were going downhill in January.

He's averaging 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists since the All-Star break. Safe to say he does this vs more than the Nets at this point.

Lakers wish they had Saric over Randle rn

I like saric a lot
Hope he gets the ROTY over embiid

I thought the puppet thing was a bit much, but the basketball breakdown of Russ and James was well done and I can see how it would be easily digestible for a young fan of the game.

This is what I got. I also got that having negative feelings/thoughts aren't nessarily a bad thing. It's really how you use it.

One thing I'll say is that I like the way this core is finishing the season for the most part. Last year I was disappointed because they really kinda just mailed it in the last dozen or so games. Not the case this year

Phx is the only one I have a problem with. All others, especially if we lose the pick are better.

Jokic is enough for Denver btw and they are winning so I give them the edge.

Here's what they said about Phx:

Hope

I guess you could keep the comparison basic and say the Suns have an edge on the Lakers because they have a guy who can score 70 points in a game, but that's probably an oversimplification.

Still, Devin Booker is the most promising youngster in the Pacific Division. So that helps the Suns climb higher than a Lakers team with more assets but fewer sure things. Even if Phoenix spends too much time inflating Booker's stats, and even if Earl Watson has done nothing to indicate he's a better-than-average head coach, there's a lot to like about this franchise's future.

Booker's not alone, for one thing. Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender and an upcoming lottery pick bolster the youth contingent. With Eric Bledsoe on an eminently tradable contract, Tyson Chandler and Jared Dudley affordably providing leadership, and pretty good track record attracting free agents, the Suns can bank on organic growth, trade their way to progress or sign outsiders.

It's up to them.



Despair

The downside is substantial here.

It's hard to downplay Booker's prospects, but Chriss and Bender are major unknowns who have yet to prove anything in games that matter. Brandon Knight is out of the rotation but has another three years left on his deal, and Phoenix hasn't made the best personnel decisions in recent seasons.

This is a team that had let Isaiah Thomas get away after signing him to a fantastic deal. And let's not forget the bold move of adding Chandler as a long-shot lure for LaMarcus Aldridge—one that didn't pan out.

Nothing's certain, but having Booker, a potential star on a rookie deal, makes the upside easy to see.

That's a pretty fair and honest assessment.

We have 2 potential stars in D'lo and Ingram to counter Booker.... a couple of, if nothing more, solid rotational players in Clarkson, Zubac and Randle.

Looking at the remaining schedule
We might muck around and win 4-5 more games
We play both the Spurs and dubs, they could very well choose to rest their stars
Only for sure losses are against the clippers and Memphis
Minny x 2, Sac, NO,

Smh

You can't really say Ingram when he has had 1 of the worst statistical seasons for a rookie in history. Thats prob why they dont consider him.

I mean if embiid is in the Roy convo for 31 games, why can't we just throw out Ingram's first 2 months..

Tryna see if I have this right.....

Booker, age 20, PER of 14
Chiss, age 19, PER of 12
Bender, age 19, PER of 5.7
Future Lotto pick upcoming to bolster


Is better than

DLo, age 21, PER of 16
Randle, age 22, PER of 16
Ingram, age 19, PER of 8
Zubac, age 19, PER of 17
Future Lotto pick upcoming to bolster

Am I reading this correctly?

Oh, and I guess I forgot this part...

So you're saying he's one of the worst rookies of all time, statistically? Wow.

Reading comprehension & interpretation my man....
I am not saying anything laugh.gif BI is my fave Laker
But yes, statistically he is having a historically bad rookie season. Especially the consistent high minutes he has had this season.
Noooow theres a lot that goes into that (age, physical makeup, position, team build, etc.)

And he is also a totally different player after the break than before, so theres really no reason to worry.
