Happy Halloween. Your Phoenix Suns, losers of five straight, host the San Antonio Spurs tonight. They will do so without Devin Booker. In front of a national television audience.
If that is not enough to throw a scare into you, enjoy this offering from NBA TV. This year’s rookies were asked to pick the “scariest” NBA veterans to play against.

Hakeem Olajuwon, Shawn Kemp, Kobe Bryant, and Allen Iverson were popular picks. Probably Rookie of the Year Deandre Ayton went with a former Sun, Shaquille O’Neal. Mikal Bridges picked four-time Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace.
I’m looking forward to both Bridges and Ayton making a similar list a couple decades from now after five or so championships.
