Locked On Suns Thursday: Ja Morant wins and the Suns lose

The Suns lost in blowout fashion against Detroit, but we noticed a debate on Suns Twitter and we had to chime in on that, too.

We go over the Suns’ 118-98 loss to the Detroit Pistons live from Talking Stick Resort Arena, which included notable outings headlined by Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges.

After rummaging through our main takeaways from Phoenix’s latest defeat, we dived head-first into the Ja Morant discussion. Following a triple-double in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Morant Mania is about to hit its peak from a local perspective.

However, we have seen some try to say Morant is the No. 1 prospect in the 2019 Draft. That is unfortunately incorrect, and we advise everyone in the Phoenix market to please not start a prospect debate involving Zion Williamson versus Morant.

Finally, we gave our final thoughts on the Morant hype train by throwing out this hypothetical scenario: Select the Murray State point guard at No. 2 overall or trade his rights for someone like Jrue Holiday?
