Does anyone honestly think the Suns take (1) game against the Lakers like we did? Come on.
That's your barometer for success against the Lakers?
How about this: Does anyone think the Suns would have won at least one of the first four games in the series and not lost twice by 20 points?
??? Actually, quite a few fans see the Lakers as vulnerable. They have a top heavy roster with weak support.
I think the Lakers are very beatable. We just lack sufficient talent. With Ariza and Collins, I think this would be an entirely different series.
But yeah, if we start next season with CJ I think I'm going to take a break from basketball. We have to trade him for a talent upgrade at forward.
I’m still wondering on what the barometer is for success is?
Not sure this year could really be included in any metric? It’s been a pretty rough go.
Olshey has done a pretty good job at finding talent. Just not at retaining it. Imagine if we still had hark,curry,kanter...and we let some decent backup pgs go
Wait, you're saying that we need to trade CJ for a talent upgrade at forward, but you're also saying that if our existing forwards were available we'd be good enough to challenge if not beat the 1 seed? There seems to be a contradiction in logic there. Can you help reconcile that for me?
Will you have a game 5 WIN rant?
I don't think the Lakers are that great of a team. If we were healthy, I think this would have been a very competitive series. But even if our injured players were back, our redundant back court and our mediocrity at forward would have meant a loss in the next round anyway. The Dame and CJ experiment ran its course a while ago. It's time to move on.
How about a game 5 postponement rant?
Bring it on! This outta be good.
