In Episode 22 of the Valley of the Suns Podcast, it’s time to take a look at the Phoenix Suns’ matchups with the Jazz and Clippers, MVP cases for their two stars and “The New Mutants.”

Welcome back to the Valley of the Suns Podcast, Valley Boyz and Girlz!

In Episode 22, host Gerald Bourguet returns from a brief hiatus to touch on a number of important Phoenix Suns topics. Following a big week with primetime games against two Western Conference contenders in the Utah Jazz and LA Clippers, the new episode begins by taking a look at the biggest takeaways from those matchups that might reappear later on down the line in a potential playoff series.

After that, the MVP cases for Devin Booker and Chris Paul take centerstage, since they’ve been a hot topic of conversation around the NBA with the Suns owning the second-best record in the league. How do their candidacies compare to the main MVP candidates like Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, LeBron James, James Harden, Damian Lillard and the rest?

Finally, for the latest G-Rated segment, Bourguet breaks down The New Mutants, which just hit HBO Max after an underwhelming release in theaters last fall. Is this final entry in FOX’s X-Men universe worth checking out? Or is this “horror” movie one to skip?
