Tim, Dave and Greg find some interesting things to talk about with the Phoenix Suns!

We start the episode with a discussion of Alex Len’s comments on the Suns, and whether he really would have been further along if he’d never been drafted by the Suns. And whether he’s even a better player now in Atlanta, despite the added three-pointer.

Then we get to a bigger topic: Who will have the bigger impact on the Phoenix sports landscape?

  • Kyler Murray of the Cardinals
  • Deandre Ayton of the Suns

In the second half of the pod, we compare the Suns back court of Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio to the second half of the teams in the Western Conference. Miss the first part? No worries, you can find it here.

And finally, just like every weekend episode, we answer live listener questions right there in the last 10 minutes of the show. If you want us to take a question on the air, log on Saturday mornings from 7-8 AM on our Solar Panel Youtube channel.
