The Suns split their preseason games. None of the starters averaged even 24 minutes per game. And now there’s a week until the real season starts.

What did we learn?

Tim, Dave and Greg went to the airwaves on Tuesday this week to break down all the action.

  • Why Deandre Ayton didn’t take any threes in preseason
  • What kind of shots the Suns are getting in their new offense
  • Can Ricky Rubio and Devin Booker maximize each other? Or should they be staggered so they can stay on-ball?
  • Who was the most surprising player in preseason?
  • Do the rookies deserve rotation roles off the jump?
  • Who is this Jevon Carter dude?

Those questions are answered, plus a lot more.

Just like every time, we run an interactive show where we read your live comments and questions on the air and respond. If you want to participate, log on to our page on the YouTube on (generally) Wednesday evenings from 7:00-7:30 PM or on Saturday mornings from 7:00-8:00 AM on our Solar Panel Youtube channel. Big thanks to everyone who participated in the latest live cast!
