46 for Booker tonight

This guy continues to score the ball..... and tonight it lead to a nice win against the 76'ers on the road.

He's still so young, and for a 21 year old to be averaging nearly 25 per night against the oppositions #1 perimeter defender (night in, night out) tells me a lot about his future in the league.

I know his team is not very good now, and that his defense needs work. But you'd have a hard time convincing me that he won't be an All-NBA performer multiple times in his career.

*The great Ray Allen did not average 20ppg until his age 24 season.

That was nice

He was pretty bad the first half but you almost knew he was going to turn it on.

I really wish the Miami pick came over in the Jah draft...

We already had Embiid. If GM could've gotten it right...

We'd take Porzingis with the #3 pick. If Miami did not tank, and the #10 pick came to Philly, everyone was enamored by Justice Winslow who Miami took, but I would definitely have taken Devin Booker at 10, and I think the Sixers would have too because they needed guards.

You'd then have Embiid, Porzingis, and Booker on the Sixers, with Covington at your 3.

This process ain't bad but that would be phenomenal. They also missed Giannis and took Noel instead, but nobody is perfect.

Booker reminds me of a not as

Booker reminds me of a not as athletic Kobe Bryant. Great shooter who can shoot/score from anywhere. He has solid footwork and his handles are good enough to get anywhere when he wants to go.

Ultimately when teams start to focus more on him defensively, he needs to show that he can make teams pay for that attention and find teammates for some easy shots.

Booker put on an absolute Show

And he Roasted Phila's perimeter Defense - Ouch

TJ Warren played a Monster game too & Josh Jackson's stats won't show it but he played a Really physical game & went toe 2 toe w/ Ben Simmons

Simmons got his but Jackson did not back down & made Simmons work

Great win for Phoenix!

Sixers need more bench

Sixers need more bench production.

Covington shot 3-13. I don't really watch the Sixers much but he has too many 3-8 games or 4-11 games. And, I guess he wasn't guarding anybody either, wonder why he wasn't on Booker.

Philly better hope that Fultz comes back soon and comes on strong. I don't think Covington is a third guy. Might be more of a solid 4th guy or an IDEAL fifth guy. JJ Reddick? Hmm, sixth man?

Philly has their duo of the future. Other than that? Some solid role players.

Covington is a great fifth man, but they paid him 3rd option money basically.

They also need to get some value out of Okafor. Even if just a late first/early second and a deep bench guy on a good contract.

Other than that, this might be Philly's last draft to really get at least one home run pick.

Suns: move some veterans like Tyson Chandler and play the young guys. They have the potential to be absolutely EXPLOSIVE. I know that the bigs are at the top of the draft boards, but Collin Sexton might be THE guy for Phoenix (ironically he is compared to Eric Bledsoe, a player they just basically gave away).

Suns are going through a solid rebuild. They got a jump start on some other teams (along with Chicago).

I wanna watch them more to see what they REALLY need.

Ayton is an Arizona guy. Maybe they go that way.

Looks like if the draft were today they would be picking at 6 and 14. That's really good. And, they might be able to do even BETTER.

I would try to get at least a late first for Tyson Chandler or somebody else. Then package that with 14 and try to move up a couple of spots.
