Alright boys we have a new nbadraft.net feud in the works. This is the official place to talk about this feud and discuss who you want to see come out on top. Lets get it on!
mikeyvthedon: "Grandpa, I love writing, so to me it is actually NOT boring. Reading it might be, I will give you that. Still, think things tend to work out. Also, will say Memphis is not the only +1'er around (though it was pretty blatant). There is some guy I have heard (and suspected) was a member of the club as well. I will use a fake name, R.Boy. Wait, never mind, lets call him Rude B."
Expert analysis: oooo this came out of no where. That fake name was not subtle at all. Someone really could have come up with a better name. How will Rude B respond?
"WoW!! I Cant Believe MikeyV'' said i give Myself points!! I might be 1 of the few that can careless about points!!
But its Hard to believe MikeyV accuses Someone else of not being Original!!
When the Daily he Writes is News '''THAT IS AlREADY'' on the front Page of this site!!'''
Nothing Original about Copying someone else's material...
thought it was time SOMEONE CALLeD U OUT"
Expert analysis: Ouch RUDEBOY. Not the best grammer, spelling, or use of capital letters, but it gets the job done. He totally just called MikeyV out. Plagerism involved in this feud? This just keeps getting BeTTer and BeTeR. O LoOk i am typyin lyKe Dis NoW. It was THAT good!
Round 1 goes to.......
Where will this feud go from here? It is anyone's guess folks. Tune in next time for the next exciting episode.
Like i said before i'm not into Feuding..I Enjoy coming to this Site,becuz its the best place on the Internet to Discuss basketball...
I dont come on here to Promote or Talk about myself..
RUDEBOY my life is in shambles right now. This feud is all I have. Dont ruin this for me!
I want this to happen...beef...its what this forum is having for dinner
It's funny, this feud is about someone calling out another who, allegedly, +1's himself and I am a firm believer that Nbanflguy is a +1-er.
I swear, whenever he posts something, not 5 seconds later, he already has a +1. It's uncanny how often that happens. Make a post about our "feud", maybe you'll +1 yourself in that thread too.
Read Aamir's comment and I think you could say that it might indeed have been Rudeboy self +1'ing. Well, I re-read it and realized he was talking about some other person doing it. Though, I will say that I received a message from a poster I will straight up keep anonymous, thanking me for calling out Rudeboy, lol.
One thing I did not say, however, was anything about originality. That is, other than in the "NBADraft.net Roast" thread I did, which I think Rudeboy took seriously. One thing I will say is, me plagiarizing NCAA Daily is pretty ridiculous. It is a concept in which I post links to another article. If you are talking about me taking stuff from the "News" section, I am usually the person that posts stuff there in the first place.
What I write in the Daily is credited and it is news. If I "steal" something from the article I credited, it is usually just a flat out synopses. If you look at TrueHoop or other news sites, they usually just take out a paragraph of what they write to show you what the story is about. I try to give information AND write my own tilt onto what is happening. So, if what I think and write for myself is unoriginal, so be it. But, I would like to know who I am plagiarizing in the process. That is a pretty strong accusation with a weak back-up. Who am I stealing from, Rudeboy?
Man, I am not about beef on this site. I usually discourage people from getting into them rather than provoking them amongst members. I am about understanding and getting better. We can all improve and I take no exception to that. When I "call someone out", it is usually because I believe that they could be doing better or putting more thought into something. Sometimes I just flat out have a different opinion that I feel they may be missing out on. You can take it or leave it.
If I am wrong or harsh, I have this thing I can do that many have a hard time with. I can admit it. I can apologize. I am not perfect, in the least and am not even close to always right. Like most people, I like being right, but find little fault in taking accountability for my actions if I was indeed wrong. So, if I was wrong about you, Rudeboy, I apologize. Certainly, though, I think you are wrong about saying that I plagiarize people and would like to know who exactly I plagiarize when I site sources of articles I am giving to people in NCAA Daily. It is a concept that I would love to see you use and make any more original than I have, lol.
I will say that while I do forgive, it can be tough for me to forget. My memory carries on a long team and it can be a gift and a curse. It makes me remember trends and certain things said, which is good. However, sometimes you can read or interpret something differently than the implied meaning. If you read Aamir's post, I thought he was calling out Rudeboy. Indeed, re-reading it, he was talking about a poster Rudeboy was arguing with, with no name or reference to a name. Hence, my thinking it might have been Rudeboy himself. Have been long going under the assumption and it might have been wrong. Will say, do not know why this thread had to be made, but I like to come to an understanding rather than having an ongoing beef with any board member.
Always taking the high road. Lol. I was hoping for him and rudeboy to spit a few bars back and forth at each other. Instead, mikeyv took a chapter out of his most recent novel and posted it. Lmao.
Seriously though, 2 great posters who shouldn't even have to respond to this. I highly doubt either one will hold a grudge against the other.
Better than Drake vs. Common, I tell ya that!
MikeyV's memory is almost as long as his posts ;)
^^ Thats what Jersey said about McDunkin's.....pokemon collection
At the very least to accusations of plagiarism. Believe me, I am not averse to battling, but I feel there is very little need to do so if Rudeboy can maybe tell me where the hell he was coming from with what he wrote. Not really angry about it, as I feel it is a misunderstanding, but I am interested in what it is that I copy.
Also, with the whole "R. Boy" and "Rude B." thing, did nobody get the Simpsons reference? I obviously was not trying to be discreet. But, again, I said I had heard and suspected. I could be wrong. If he does not care about points, than that is solid. Still, I would at the very least like to know what was up with claims of my "copying".
Ay MikeyV, Rudeboy says Oregon sucks!
Ay Rudeboy, MikeyV says you know you cheated on every single one of those DNA test Maury gave you over little Ramelo, Dontello, Jr, Leroy Jenkins, and Pete...and he said they all have your eyes
MikeyV.... This was via the official RUDEBOY_ twitter (@SexyRUDE_BoyToy) minutes ago
"QUACK QUACK Mothaf*cka! You about get CLAPPED like after school erasers!" ... 10 minutes ago

"You're like the Stephanie Tanner of the forum.... HOW RUDE! (BOY) and I'm Michelle. You want to battle, #YouGotItDUDE" .... 32 seconds ago
Whats Gucci Mikey/Rudeboy?
...if Drake would...you two better
this site is about talking basketball... there's no feud in my eyes...
there are so many things to talk about..
the lakers wouldnt be in the playoffs if it started today..
the celtics look old..
the orlando magic are a mess,they need magic, bird,jordan, nick anderson or penny to walk thru that door..
the bucks are winning without bogut, should the bucks trade him when he gets back?
if rubio wins the rookie of the year award,he'll be the 3rd person to win it from the 2009 class..
nate wolters of south dakota state might be the next mark price....
ian miller will be the sleeper of the draft if he comes out...and people will be wondering way he didnt show it at FSU....
kevin love is a legit top 10 mvp candidate...
there are so many things to talk about and 1000s of useless trade ideas to be posted...lol..
"if rubio wins the rookie of the year award,he'll be the 3rd person to win it from the 2009 class.."
Very Very interesting. +1
yes, strange but true
Blake Griffin the 1st pick in 2009 won Rookie of the Year in 2011
Tyreke Evans the 4th pick won it in 2010
So if Rubio who was picked 5th gets it ,he'll be number 3...
any chance that Nick Calathes who was selected in the 2nd round of the 2009 draft will continue the trend and win rookie of the year next year? lmao

I am always up for a good feud. Lets give the fans what they want!
Your mom is insane in bed. I didnt even know any of those moves existed. Color me impressed.
where's Leroy Jenkins when you dont need him? lmao
Leroy is getting his nap in right now because of the Royal Rumble tonight. It won't be over until past his 9 o'clock curfew but he said he would leave Aamir along at school if he could stay up those extra two hours.
I have a bad feeling like this is somehow my fault. Please tell me I'm not the anonymous messenger... (mikeyv and I have talked outside the site quite a bit...) If I said anything like that, then put the blame on me. I'm not usually the gossip-type.
Apologies to RUDEBOY in any case, and I really don't think (or care at all if you do) give yourself points. In fact, I think you're one of the more underrated posters on the site.
No no this is my fault. I made the thread silly
Since we're sharing random facts, If you round up, than Magic averaged a triple double in 1984, 18 points, 9.5 assists and 9.6 rebounds, but I guess the NBA is just like my English teacher, they refuse to round up.
this is another chapter in NBADraft.net's history... awesome!!!
I May Be Wrong, you need to listen to better battle rap or spend a lot more time thinking of insults. You putting together insults is the equivalent of making Sarah Palin look like Stephen Hawking. In other words, stick to your day job of scouring the internet for things that other people have created that you find funny thus take credit for your own by getting points from this site.
See, I like I May Be Wrong, but I can mess around with him and his $hit fake tweets and general abilities. Rudeboy, I really have no problem with him. I even apologized if I was wrong, which I indeed, may be. But, the one thing I would like is to know where he was coming from by saying I plagiarized what I write.
I want to know why what I said FINALLY made him snap on something I find a lot more serious than giving yourself points. I also would like to know who I am copying. Basically, I have no problem with Rudeboy. I would just like for him to actually maybe take some steps to say where he was actually coming from in his allegations, which I find to be as baseless as he found mine to be.
