He'd have been in the ROY conversation if he played like he did post all-star break all year long, though I don't think he'd have finished higher than 3rd considering the team success experienced by Simmons and Mitchell.
I just want to throw this out there - but theres no fkn way Simmons should be eligible for ROY....Just my .02

Yea I really like his game. He'll probably put up better numbers than Tatum next year.

I agree. The dude had NBA level trainers and coaches for a full year. He also was exposed to the grind. It's obviously an enormous advantage for him.

He looked real good as the number 1 option Warren and Booker were hurt

Sixers fans have to be the only people who think like this. So I'll agree to disagree assuming you are one.

The price of the tickets and the empty seats ( Fairweather PHX fans ) were the main reasons I went to ao many games this year but man this dude was awesome to watch the final 2 months. I hope the Suns eventually find themselves in the playoffs.

They were actually able to do something on BC and his burner accounts too.

Still would rather have Kyrie Irving than Josh Jackson. By a MILE.

The Suns have Jackson under team control for awhile. Kyrie could have walked after this upcoming season and Suns fans already have PTSD over the possibility of getting McDyess'd again.



With Booker, Jackson and Ayton the Suns are putting together a very talented core group. Building a roster holistically, much like how Golden State built their roster.
