    That's some real 'Critical Thinking' there.

    Realistically they won’t be able to trade for anything nearly worth his value to that team though. And a big part of what he does is make Ayton better. Seems like a predicament.

    Also, not sure you can say CP3 is the choker. DBook is MIA.

    Do they have one of those bells to ring when you get buried alive? How much oxygen is left?

    He choked for the Clippers, for the Rockets, and now it looks like for the Suns

    Been so impressed with Kidd defensively all year.

    The best team guarding the pnr 2v2 with late peel switches. Really good technique fighting over screens. Went away from his blitzing scheme as a base but will vary the level of the drop and the amount of help they bring weakside. Drive help is on point most nights. Will switch off strongside corner on wing blowbys. X outs are clean on the weakside. Multiple efforts on scrambles.

    Love to go late clock switch into a double or just straight double if the ball is in best players hands with less than 7 or so seconds to go.

    All really good stuff

    Simply cannot blame this on Chris Paul. He is the 3rd or 4th option. This is on Booker and Ayton.

    Lol, most of those teams got injured.

    Also, this isn’t the same CP3. His role on this team isn’t to average 25/12. It’s to average like 10/12. Hard to get those assists when players are bricking shots. Not to mention Ayton is getting abused on defense. And Booker is absolutely nothing on offense. He could be much more aggressive. This is hardly on cp3.

    What a joke. The NBA should be embarrassed.
