  1. 0:00​ Stephen A. doesn't consider the Suns legitimate contenders yet.

    2:04​ Max sees Phoenix as real contenders in the West.

    5:00​ Stephen A. is proud of the Suns, but still thinks the team is a piece away.

  2. Stephen A I don’t know if this suns team has the experience to beat a team like Utah in the playoffs. Also Phoenix 2-0 vs Jazz so far this season.

  3. “In a regular season you gotta understand. We play a game and go on our merry way” So explain why everyone is cumming in their jeans about Brooklyn beating everybody and winning 17 of 20 or whatever.. hypocrisy

  4. I hate the "the Suns were on fire in the bubble" narrative.

    The Suns were one of the few teams that were fighting for something in the bubble. They were going at 110% every game in hopes of getting into the playoffs.

    Most teams that already clinged the playoffs were just going thru the motions, getting reps in and getting their legs up under them. They didn't care if they lost. Just look at the Lakers during those bubble games.

    Suns are a good team but they're not a contender yet, not even close. Other than CP3 and Jae, no one has experience and they're far too young. I don't trust Booker enough in the playoffs cause all you gotta do is create a gameplay against him and he's not good enough to readjust and counter said gameplan.

  5. They can def make the finals, only thing holding them back is depth at 5. They got great perimeter defense, can shoot, good passing, deep at guard and the wing. The only west teams that could beat them in 6 imo are the Lakers (mostly because of size and they don't have much to guard AD), and maybe the Blazers (if Portland keeps it close Dame can close out the game and Suns scoring has been shaky at times).

  6. I love how Stephen A thinks hes the god at predictions. This is the same guy who predicted the outcome of the finals wrong 6 years straight lolll

    Edit: he acts as though max kellerman has no idea what hes talking about lol
