Here's what Deandre Ayton needs to do to prove the Suns were right to draft him

Have you noticed what the big fella is doing lately?

Deandre Ayton has been earning his pun-derfully awful nickname “DominAyton” and proving that the Suns did the right thing in drafting him No. 1 in 2018, even that meant passing over All-Stars Luka Doncic and Tre Young.

If this feels early, I get it.

Suns fans over the last decade have seen their team overlook a who’s who of young NBA stars. Since 2010, Phoenix has missed on Bam Adebayo, Donovan Mitchell, Domantas Sabonis, Nikola Jokic, Rudy Gobert, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Draymond Green, Khris Middleton, Nikola Vucevic, Jimmy Butler, Isaiah Thomas and Kawhi Leonard.
