    ASU softball gets the #8 seed in the tournament.

    I, much like others, don't care until there is a new owner. Sarver is toxic.

    Where were you when the Dbacks were doing good before this series vs the Nationals?



    This isn't an accurate statement. You and many other Coyotes fans were happy with Sarver when the team was a title contender and now you and those same Coyotes fans don't care about the team as a result of the team playing like crap over the years. Not to mention, you and those same Coyotes fans hate Sarver more not because of the performance of the team but Sarver isn't willing to help the Coyotes. Sarver will be loved once again when the Suns are among the best teams in the league again regardless of him not willing to help the Coyotes.

    ^Sarver inherited a very good team from Colangelo that was already on its way, and when the window closed on the Steve Nash Suns 6 years later, the malaise began. He probably deserves any hate he gets from all Suns fans, not just those that are also Coyotes fans, until he...hahah, yeah, right...turns it around.

    The NBA also isn't worth following if you're one of the 25 teams without a power trio. The league is basically a waiting room.

    I've posted a few times. Sorry I don't post play by play of every game. Like I said early on before the season even started, their hitting was going to be questioned because of the loss of Martinez. Doesn't appear I was wrong.



    Well, if you understand the history of the Suns, he purchased the team in 2004, and they wound up making the playoffs the first 3 years of his tenure. It has been a progressive decline over time, and has shown no signs of improving whatsoever. So yeah, of course you can cheer when he first took over, but it was quickly obvious he was not fit to run an NBA franchise.

    Would it be nice if the Suns shared the arena with the Coyotes? Sure. But it didn't work before(the stadium isn't built for hockey). First game I went to was a family 4 pack, and you couldn't see half of the ice from where our seats were. Rumors are swirling that Sarver wants to sell the team. If fans stopped showing up to games, it would have probably pushed him to sell sooner. But as it is, people like their NBA basketball.

    True. I don't really watch until the playoffs, and even then I rarely watch. The Cavs/Celtics game yesterday was the first playoff game I've watched so far this year. NBA needs to try and do something though, because it's the same teams every year. But I get that the league is more star oriented.

    Is he an Arizona native too?

    Nevermind, I found on the Googles that he isn't.

    It would be dumb not to take Ayton. 7’1 guy that’s phenomenal. I think it’s a no brainer here.

    His defense isn't actually phenomenal, the main reason you draft a center.

    Defense is an afterthought in the NBA these days.

    Brewers walk Owings to get to Descalso, and he gets the game winning hit.

    Daniel is becoming one of the D-backs most dangerous hitter.

    Diamondbacks need to do something about this middle IF situation. Owings, Marte, and Ahmed can't hit ****.

    Find someone with another struggling middle IF and do a change of scenery deal. Worked out with Aaron Hill.

    I think the Arizona kid is the best pick for the Suns.

    Seems like the sure pick. If the other guy plays games, all is lost. His defensive deficiencies can be overcome. I can't find the article where I learned it (possibly a TV B/C) , but I don't think he has played BB long.
