me- its been about 5 years but i just found out about the chat almost 2 years ago. i used to come up here just to read some of the articles and the info on the players that they would write about. I kinda hated the old format that they used to have about 3 years back(maybe longer)
I started coming here reading the 2008 mock draft because I was really high on jerryd bayless and wanted to see where he was projected in the draft but i didnt join to a year later.
2 years ago.
I came 2 years ago but didnt really do anything interactive til' last month.
Similar to Stanford Hoops
I've been here for a while, i'd say 3 years, just kinda reading articles & stalking mock draft, then last year I decided to actually become a member...havent left this addictive website ever since...
i actually have been looking at this sights mocks and articles for maybe 5 or 6 years....when dr***expre** was still DraftCity
i remember when nemanja aleksandrov was going to be the first #1 pick out of Europe
some of ya'll will remember how plain and boring it was a couple years ago. some stuff wouldnt be updated for days or even weeks..lol.. but it was still better then other sites
3 years but then a yr later just started to sign on and start talking... and have forgot some usernames in the begining haha we all probably have
I've been coming here since 2005, just for the mocks and articles. Started posting on the forums in 2009.
I first on this site in 2007. Then, I started coming to this site daily to read the mock drafts, articles, and scouting reports they made. Then, I finally made an account early in 2009 but didn't start chatting in the forums until late 2009.
I have been checking on this site from over 7 years but I will say about 2 or 3 years ago I starting actually chatting with people on here because at first I did not know you could do that and I was not really big on chatting
Been checking this site for at least 9 years, I originally started checking this site b/c of my fantasy basketball keeper league. We have a minor league system where we can draft high school and college players so I used to check the mock drafts to see who was projected where and would assemble my list from there... Aran had me hyped about James White who I unfortunately drafted, I remember this site had him going 2nd or 3rd after his Sr. year in high school. I remember having the 3rd and 5th picks in our minor league draft the year I drafted James White. I took White 3rd overall and picked Lebron 5th overall which was the at the beginning of Lebron's sophomore year. What a mistake that could have been passing on Lebron, would have been kicking myself forever. Luckily whoever picked 4th didn't know about him. Got him before all the hype.
Aran has been running a great site for many years, tip your cap
I joined Spring of 09', relatively new i guess but i try to get my posts in. I kind of left for most of last fall and winter but came back in february and beeen going strong since. Live Long and Prosper my fellow NBAdraft.neters...
I remember Yao Ming was #1 on the mock draft for the following year so that would make it 2001. I remember thinking what a freak of nature and I was really intriuged by him as a prospect. I've been coming here since, but mainly to check out prospects and compare mocks. I didn't start on the chat until probably a year and a half ago. Really to be honest the reason I found this site in the first place was so I could create rookies for my NBA Live 2000 game for my PC, but it got me hooked, lol
I've been reading and following the mock drafts on this site since 2000, but I didn't start posting on the forums until last summer. I can safely say that, after joining this site, I can out-talk anyone I know about basketball -- NBA, College, High School, even Euroleague, which I don't really follow. In addition, the "After Hours Crew" has given me more laughs than I could ever imagine. We need to schedule some type of reunion.
Special shout-out to cyclo, ScareCrow and European Baller. The site wouldn't be the same without cyclo's nonsense, ScareCrow's conspiracy theories, and European Baller's random "blessings."
Everytime European Baller posts, for some reason I picture him as a geeky blonde kid with the attitude of Dolph Lundgren (Ivan Drago) in Rocky IV
I always pictured him as this kid, but with the ability to speak English:
I have been coming here since I registered as a user. I came here just for the forum.
I registered on Christmas of last year (lolwut?) I actually have been reading the drafts and articles since '08 though.
Well when I was in high school a couple years ago Aran contacted me so i came on a couple site visit he told me they would be willing to give me a scholarship to post so I signed............they gave me the Jesus Shuttlesworth treatment on my first visit so i had to come
I'll never forget it. I registered the day after Denis Clemente hung 44 points on Texas. Somebody made a post about it, and I made an account just to comment on it lol. That had to be in 2008, I don't remember the exact date but that was the 1st time I've ever posted on this site (that was under my old username)
i started going on this site bout a year and a half back... i made an account in january, but got rid of it, and made a new one
wizkid...i was there..you did the exact opposite of what jesus did that night
I've been coming for a couple of years, but registered for the forum in May when I decided I wanted to get in on the Mock Draft action. And I decided to check out the threads and found that some people here, unlike some other sites, actually know what they're talking about, so I've enjoyed reading and posting here.
Since my freshman year of high school 01'.....I miss the old player profiles Aran can we please get those back, because I forgot a lot of player comparisons you had?
since '04 man. I was so high on Devin Harris that year... I had plans to go to the draft at the theater at the garden so I wanted to see where guys were projected to go, that's how I found out about this site.
You had me sold on DeShawn Stevenson when you gave him the "MJ" comparison that's why I was high on him...boy has he dissappointed me!!!!! I recently registered after all these years because I would only come to the site to see the mocks & comparisons. I will forever remain faithful to this site NO OTHER COMPARES BY FAR!!!!!!!
Since before the 04 draft. i even think i did the mock draft game with Okafor going 1 and D12 going 2, lol. It was a different user name then.
Since the 03 draft. I signed up for these boards a while ago but never posted much because it was kind of dead here. I found the boards again this year and have seen how active the boards are. I've been posting daily since April.
I am pretty sure i used to post on the old school message boards, under Big V. I have been posting here fairly consistently since around 2007/08. Actually, I for some reason think that it might have indeed been the 1999 draft, but I am not sure if I recall correctly, but 2000 for sure.
A little while before the draft with Oden and Durant, 2007 I think.
Since I was born in 89. I was researching John Bryant, even back then I knew he was gonna make it big.
I started coming to the site around 2007 because of Eric Gordon, Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo, etc. I had a lot of interest in that class and was interested in seeing what the "experts" thought.
I didn't start making comments until around last year though. My first comment was in a Chauncey Billups vs Allen Iverson thread lol.
