    Liking both Little and Simons. Both seem to be much better under Billups. What a difference!

    Stotts wouldve 100% taken Nas out on that last possession.

    These two young kids look like different players so far under Billups.

    Nas and Ant both look to have taken a real step. This is AMAZING to see. Little in particular looks amazing, but I love Simons new aggression he just needs to dunk that shit now!

    Even I have to agree. CJ has had a MONSTER game against a stellar Suns team. He looks like a different player and our Defense looks LOCKED IN! I'm truly excited and ready to let this ride for awhile. I will tell you right now, no more trading Little in fact I'm starting to think I want him to start over Powell.
