    Former Laker great?

    :Laugh:

    We’ve gotten so many good to great players past their peak, but that’s mighty generous

    2 & 1 in 7 minutes a night. Not sure what more you need from a player. But he did get the factories used to printing #24 jerseys, which they'd be doing a lot of a little later.

    Looks like we'll be getting our first pre season win tomorrow



    Who's left? Is Nash going to play?

    Who do we have? The younger guys, the centers... and then Ellington and Baze? Plus AD for one quarter, correct?

    Someone posted something somewhere else about this. I think Melo’s playing, but Dawight’s sitting. Not positive though.

    Random prediction. If this team was assembled in 2014, they would be 75-7 for the regular season lol.

    It's like... Rondo really hasn't changed that much at all. Very youthful.

    I noticed that too. Just filled out a bit is all.

    Plus, I completely forgot Ariza was drafted by the Knicks. I was thinking Orlando, but that’s what I get for thinking.

    Rondo practices the art of not giving a (bleep). I always say, those who practice that art usually stay youthful.

    Like what I’ve seen from Malik Monk and Chaundee Brown so far.

    Bumpity bump!

    I’ve seen a lot of negative chat from other fan bases on how terrible we are, how we’re washed up, fit badly, how bad Westbrook is, how Lebron is done, how AD isn’t an impact player, how we’ll be in the play in.

    I’m gonna really enjoy the hate when we obliterate their favourite team in the post season!

    it's a long season. suns fans are probably going to find that out in the way that most fans of teams with chris paul find that out.

    Yeah, I was shocked that CP3 made it through the Finals relatively healthy. He's overdue for one of his annual catastrophic boo-boos.

    eh, i wonder if he really did.

    and we would have beaten them with AD anyway. they're cute and not winning anything. if gs gets klay back and he looks like kd did after his injury, they're much scarier, imo.

    I don't know about that. Booker's a load to have to deal with on offense added back in. McGee helps the center rotation. Monte coaches good and they move and shoot good. GS yeah, we better have our bleep together for opening night or it may be ugly.
