Earlier this month, the Suns had the top pick in the NBA draft and chose UA center Deandre Ayton. Even if the team’s greatest hopes are realized, it’s unlikely that Ayton will turn out to be a Hall of Fame-caliber player.

Writer Shea Serrano had never watched Taurasi play until recently. But when he did, he admits to being amazed. He wrote about that for "The Ringer" and was on The Show to talk about what he saw.
