It’s time to shred the old narrative: Devin Booker can play defense

It’s time to shred the old narrative: Devin Booker can play defense

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports Things constantly change in the NBA, yet narratives rarely do. It’s time to give Booker his due for the defensive progress he’s made. Let’s start this thing out with the guns blazing. I hereby declare that most defensive metrics are garbage, and anyone that uses them alone to make conclusions about individual players usually have an agenda they are pushing or leave out a lot of valuable information. There is an infinite amount of context and situational plays that can be left out in defensive metrics. More specifically, on a...

Ayton Watch: Hot, Hot, Heat Hoopin’

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Building to his game, Ayton is showing that he is the center piece to the Suns success. Suns center Deandre Ayton was running on coals from offense to defense and vice-versa. Not even testing the water he was ready to play a competitive team in the Miami Heat. During the last few games for the Phoenix Suns, Ayton has really let the game come to him and was able to show up when things started to tense up late in games. Remember when Ayton was benched in the fourth quarter earlier this year? It seems like a year ago. His play has taken a...
