vs. phx: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

October 15, 2010

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Bright Side of the Sun.

Is Matt Janning guarding Gordon Hayward again?
That matchup makes me laugh.
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 9:26 AM CST

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.
by 7footer on Oct 15, 2010 9:29 AM CST

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

Me too.
He’ll forever have a place in my heart ever since I was at the game where he clotheslined Kobe.
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 9:52 AM CST

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..
Just saying..
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 10:29 AM CST

Is that Goran starting?!
Woo-Hoo! :)
by Dragic_is_Magic on Oct 15, 2010 10:30 AM CST

yum.
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…
by Sun God on Oct 15, 2010 11:17 AM CST

Me too!

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.

Last note:
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:

    Hayward will never replace Korver! And most of the women wearing his jersey should be ashamed, he is a baby! Does he even shave yet? Love Gordon! But at lease Kyle was a man!

      haha…Goran Dragic appears to be quite popular with Suns fans, and he looks so young Hayward looks all grown up in comparison.

Thoughts?
