Vol.3, Iss.3: The Off-Season Wrap Up
Reviewing the Suns off-season to date, while previewing what might still be to come.
It’s Me Again…..
Hello! I can promise you this will be the last Newsletter Issue to hit your inbox for a little while. I wanted to put a bow on the Suns 20/21 Finals run & go over my thoughts on the off-season so far. While the podcast medium is great to cover a lot of thoughts all at once, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the written format recently too. Once again, thanks to all of you who seem to enjoy it also & continue to support the cause. The eyes, clicks & shares are a huge help! Time for a break now. Go Suns!
One For The Road…..
Max & I jumped back on the mics to dissect what the Phoenix Suns have achieved so far in the NBA off-season. Starting with a brief recap of the NBA Finals & Devin Booker winning gold at the Olympics, we quickly move to all the moves in the order of when they happened. Finally, we decided to mock out how the Ayton & Bridges extension negotiations might go - before ending with some possible trade ideas after the latest Issue of the Newsletter focused on what James Jones might be thinking.
