If we sign CP3/Crowder instead of Adams/Bledsoe
Pels would be in the WCF. Instead WE have a roster construction headache and accomplished jack shite in two years of Zion. Meanwhile, Happy Halloween and the Suns are two years ahead of us in development. Griff better come with the HEAT this off season or get OUT the kitchen

Bledsoe was necessary to get that haul from the Bucks unless we could have rerouted him like we did with Hill.

Adams was completely unnecessary and just a stupid trade all around.

Yeah, I still feel like the upside for the Bledsoe trade is with New Orleans for now.

Who cares? Is Phoenix winning a title? No. Very few people here must want to actually win a championship I guess. Booker is 24 and Ayton is 22. They are closer to their primes than a 23yo BI who is more of a late bloomer than Booker and a 20yo Zion. Do we need to get better players? Yes but imo trying to get the 3rd guy to make a big 3 should happen AFTER we make the playoffs.

I find it amusing that everyone on here wants to give away the entire war chest for a 30 something Lillard just for a couple seasons of glory where Zion and BI won’t be any where near their prime yet.

But we could have had CP3 for less than what we gave up for Adams lol.....

4 seasons of Dame, and the time to start is now for Zion, not 4 years from now.

How? Curious why that trade favored the Pels? The Buck picks may be close to 2nd round choices which will be worthless.

They're way out in the future, we have no idea what the last couple of picks will be like, it's not even worth venturing a guess at this point.

Yeah I hear ya, but if they don't start winning by next season, Zion won't be around when he reaches his prime

i just want a competitive team that makes the playoffs with the occasional deep run here and there. are we ever going to win a championship? probably not. but would rather be the hawks than what we are right now.

It wouldn't be the entire warchest necessarily, especially if we hit the lottery this year.

Hes 31, and those couple of seasons of "glory" would be exactly what you do to keep a player of Zions caliber. You show him you aren't afraid to swing for the fences. frick even if it's just WCF that's further than this franchise has ever made it. It is 100% worth it.

That's the best part. As Lillard wanes he can slowly defer to BI and Zion more and more. Hell it's the Zion show right now and Lillard would understand that. That pnr combo would be the most lethal in the league.

Just isolate them on the same side of the floor. You'll have 5 defenders on the same side and you're a few swing passes away from an open 3

The only way to stop Lillard is to double him and trap him at halfcourt. The only way to stop Zion is to build a wall around the paint.

But it's impossible to do both of those things! If you put Lillard and Zion together, you will get 70-80 points per nights just from that duo.

We could have had CP3 for two seasons and gave up less than what it took to get Adams. That’s two seasons of making the playoffs if he stays healthy and we would still have the entire war chest. By then Zion, BI and the entire organization should have established themselves as winners as Paul leaves, making it easier as a destination to attract a third star to pair with a prime Zion and BI by trade or fa.

In two years Dame will be out of his prime and it will likely cost us a big chunk of our war chest if not most of it. I’d rather have someone on the same timeline as our two best players if a ship is the uktimate goal…..
