Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Bright Side of the Sun.
Is Matt Janning guarding Gordon Hayward again?
That matchup makes me laugh.

White on white crime.
by waxmonkey on Oct 15, 2010 9:30 AM CST
Yeah.. At least I don’t mind looking at Gordon Hayward though… :)
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 9:30 AM CST
Deron put a nasty crossover on Nash…
that was a thing of beauty.

Im not happy with that Jazz play but holy moly, it was beautiful
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 9:29 AM CST

by Migonads on Oct 15, 2010 9:30 AM CST
Because it was nasty… Even I said “OOOOHHHH”
by 7footer on Oct 15, 2010 9:31 AM CST
raja bell…. that name rings a bell
by Migonads on Oct 15, 2010 9:35 AM CST
Named my cat after him.
by waxmonkey on Oct 15, 2010 9:35 AM CST
I’ve got Raja and Boris – when they got traded, I stopped naming cats after players.
by haremoor on Oct 15, 2010 9:41 AM CST
I think you’d be pretty safe with Steve. At least he’ll be a legend.
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 9:41 AM CST
I was so in love with Raja Bell.
When I heard we traded him, it was just heartbreaking.
by bmiller16 on Oct 15, 2010 11:36 AM CST
Same here.. I actually cried myself to sleep that night.
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 11:38 AM CST
School that day was horrible.
That’s what I remember most.
Everyone was like ‘hey, the suns traded Raja!’
And I was like hey, stop talking !
I have a bit of a grudge against J Rich.
I love him, but there’s a grudge.

Someone explain these online broadcasts to me. Are they illegal?
by 8472species on Oct 15, 2010 9:35 AM CST
I don’t know and I don’t really care. I think it’s illegal to not show any Suns games yet to show a ton of Heat scrimmages.
by Beavis 25 on Oct 15, 2010 9:36 AM CST
Me: I am +100′ing Beavis 25′s comment. Right on, brother.
our team looks so weird with a black point gaurd lol
by Migonads on Oct 15, 2010 9:38 AM CST
Our D or lack thereof is making CJ Miles look like the best knockdown shooter ever
by AdamG03 on Oct 15, 2010 9:48 AM CST
I miss Raja..
so much .. sniff sniff..
Go Suns!! Suns For Life!! (miss you Raja)
by Reelsht on Oct 15, 2010 9:51 AM CST
He’ll forever have a place in my heart ever since I was at the game where he clotheslined Kobe.

by blank_38 on Oct 15, 2010 9:55 AM CST
The other big white guy, Kofus or something
by Lemmings on Oct 15, 2010 9:57 AM CST
Gordon Hayward needs a haircut.. Nothing major, just a trim..
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 10:29 AM CST
Is that Goran starting?!
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 10:30 AM CST
by bmiller16 on Oct 15, 2010 10:31 AM CST
Indeed. I don’t mind him and Hayward on the floor at the same time.
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 10:32 AM CST
At this point, an insulting comment about AK’s hair kicks off a 55-comment multi-layered thread that springs discussions on:
–NBA players with worse hair (Noah, Blake Griffin’s new ‘do, and Drew Gooden’s rat tail*);
–Birdman and how seeing him makes one commenter want to take a shower;
–Chris Kaman’s penchant for taking his machine gun into international waters and shooting fish;
–how Kaman celebrated the 4th of July;
–whether shooting fish is unnecessary;
–”Theyre fish Not babies”;
–”You’re republican. Not human”;
–what Kaman does with the fish he shoots;
–”dead fish don’t have baby fish”;
–and how one commenter’s girlfriend used to be a vegetarian.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
*HOMERS! How does Robin Lopez and his ginormous century-old attic pubic dust bunny not come up in this conversation?
AK diving but the white dragic look alike couldnt?
by PandRisDead on Oct 15, 2010 11:04 AM CST
Evans is impressive
by 7footer on Oct 15, 2010 11:14 AM CST
I like that kid Evans…
How is it Utah keeps getting these talents in the second round…?
by Sun God on Oct 15, 2010 11:15 AM CST
I’d trade Clark for this guy evans in a heartbeat…

Opponent Game Thread Whipping Post:
Definitely Matt Janning.
The overriding subject of complaint throughout the thread, however, was the homerism of Boler and Matty. Even I have to admit, Boler and Matty were quite homer-y with their commentary today. Given their history of non-homery commentary, I am attributing it to first-game excitement for now.
I’ve been speculating in the past few OGTs that Hayward has replaced Korver as the object of female fan affection. Jazz fan Vizzle07 was kind enough to tweet me this update from the arena:
