The Suns top two players are easily rookie center Deandre Ayton and star guard Devin Booker. And both of them were engaged in a verbal confrontation as members of the media walked into the locker room after Phoenix’s 108-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
The two have had words before on the court, with Booker correcting Ayton on what to do on certain plays. Both players agreed to hold players accountable but this was way different.
“I’m an emotional guy, too,” Ayton said. “I start to feel stuff. When I don’t sense it and the energy is not there, that’s when you start to hear my mouth. I don’t care who it is. Nineteen-year vet or 15 years, it don’t matter. We all have a job to do and I have to step it up a little more, too.”
“This is my team,” Ayton said. “I feel everything. … When we lose and stuff like this, I’m hurting. I take it (with) pride. I’m the guy that’s gonna be here for (several) years.
Well what do you expect when you’re 4-21. These two are developing stars but what’s going to happen next? When will they finally be something.
