that was nice. but he caught siakam unawares. let's see him try that when siakam knows it's coming - i believe the stuff would be going in the other direction. just pointing it out to be fair. posterizing someone when they are late to the party is one thing - posterizing someone on a dead on mano-a-mano is something else.

I notice he didn’t have to run away and hide behind another player on his team after he did it, like when Culver went over Lopez (then proceeded to act like a child and stare him down) and immediately ran and hid behind NAZ as though he was his momma’s skirt when Lopez came after him.

THE highlight of Culver’s first year. :lol:

Just pointing it out... ;)

well.... maybe because... siakam just..... got out of the way ....and then moved on to the next play? you've got no indication of what booker's reaction would have been if siakam had come after him - nice try, joda. ooooh, look how brave devin is. when no one confronts him. and culver's slam was more impressive - lopez saw him comin from a mile off and got destroyed anyway.

it was a nice dunk and i said that. but i'm just pointing out the obvious in the apparent devin booker love fest going on around here. i'm sure there are vids of booker actually posterizing someone - but this IMO wasn't one of them.

Booker was coming off a curl, ie changing direction, took no dribble, and still dunked over the taller and longer Siakam.

I think it’s a better dunk than you give it credit for.

okay, we disagree. and i'll fully admit that there are some probably ridiculous dunks that booker has done in the league. i'm sure of it. i don't think that was one of them. he dunked over a longer, taller siakam - who barely got around in time and off the floor. siakam could have been jalen brunson there for all the good his length did him in that situation. to me it looked like a dunk booker could do during warmups - with about as much resistance. and i only mention all of this because the pro-booker Tpups crowd is pumping as much air as they can into the balloon right now - and i don't want him on our team. and that's what this is about - wanting booker on the wolves or not wanting booker on the wolves.

It doesn't mean anything though. That's all.

I can find you a whole highlight reel of awesome dunks by basketball players who were never that good.


Hooker is nothing more than a looker.


Wiseman+Winston is basketball nirvana.

53 points for TJ Warren last night.

Did the Suns really trade him to the Pacers for CASH? No wonder players want out of Phoenix.

Still don't see a path to get Booker though if Beasley can't be included in a Sign & Trade with other players.

Wolves top 5 pick gets the Suns Lamelo, Beasley S&T, They build around Melo and Ayton.

Park this guy next to DLO and KAT and you are realistically looking at one of - if not the top offense in the NBA. Put two defensive scramblers in the lineup with them and LET’S GO!!!

Phoenix is looking like a team on the rise. No reason to trade Booker unless he pulls an Anthony Davis and sits until he's traded. I don't see him doing that though.

So we can definitely get this TJ Warren with our Nets pick?

kinda makes you wonder how much playing with booker was holding tj warren back, doesn't it? how much has he scored in the bubble again? 87 points in two games? hmmmm, what's that, a 43.5 ppg average? gee,i wonder if TJ is glad to be out from under booker.

Booker just pooped on Kawhi and PG13

Massive game, and then hits the game winner over 2 of the best defenders in the league.

Yes, everyone against trading for the guy thinks he sucks. It has nothing to do with dumping assets and sacrificing depth for the right to pay 3 guys $90+ mil.

You’re such a fucking tool.

Suns are not trading Booker anyway.

Also, Ayton will end up a better player than Carl a few years from now.
