Colin Cowherd: “This is why I like the Phoenix Suns – they’re OLD SCHOOL. Everybody has a defined role, none of this ‘position-less basketball’ nonsense. They have a TRUE point guard in Chris Paul, they have a dominant SHOOTING guard, Devin Booker. They have two athletic wings, both can finish and both can hit a three, Mikal Bridges and Jae Crowder, one is a veteran and one is a kid. Then they have an athletic big, Deandre Ayton, who likes being big and doesn’t hoist up threes, and likes being around the basket. They don’t do ‘load management’ in Phoenix, that’s not their thing. Defined roles matter… The Suns actually play nine guys. With all these ‘Superteams’ you can’t afford a bench. You go back to the greatest teams of all time like Jordan’s Bulls or Magic’s Lakers, they had defined roles… I like Phoenix because they’re old school. Built through the draft and no load management. Their players play all their games and that’s why their chemistry is so good.” (Full Video Above)
