Some of yall are giving him negatives for no reason. Everyone should go back and give him a positive for everything to get him out of negatives.
Totally agree, I've been on that mission for awhile but one point doesn't do much.
it'll never work, i dont know who it is, but theres an army that gives hims negatives for the hell of it
but im down to see and try if we can do it
Thanks guys....It's ok. I'm cool
Bullshyt, were getting you in the positives
Q should have 5000 points by now lol.
seriously guys, Points don't matter. I don't judge a person's degree of Basketball-knowledge by points, that's stupid. If 15 year old kids want to treat this forum like Xbox live and want to unlock "highest point total" achievements, let them. Hardcore basketball fans like yours truly will not give them whatever respect they think they deserve. Even though QHaynes has negative points, I still regard him as a top 10 poster (in terms of knowledgeableness ) on this site, even though I ripped into him a few months back about trading some draft picks. Look, I know it feels good to have others look at your points and automatically think you have inside sources, but it's much more satisfying to garner respect through the quality of your posts.
From now on, I will erase posts where the topic is purely based upon someone griping about points. Thanks for your cooperation.
LOL, these mods are tight....hop off
We all know that points dont matter, i think were all smart enough to realize that...
its just ironic how one of the most respected guys on this site, with a high b-ball IQ, has such low points
ok... Some people just gave MagikKnick 2 negative points for the above comment. There are definitely come negative nancies on this site. I see nothing wrong with the comment. I wish MODS can overturn points, that'll make the points system much more fair.
Either delete the point system entirely
or show the screen names of those who gave negatives
..thats my fix
he earned those points by saying such things as white people aren't tough.
did he really say that?
the predicted 2010 mock draft thread.. he said something about white players dont get drafted high because they lack athleticism, toughness, and something else.
....Uh...read what i said on that post
Those are reason why i heard white players i liked in past draft why they didn't get drafted high or at all
see what im saying. Some people be hating for no reason, i refresh 10 sec after and im -2
"No it wasn't...he was speaking the truth. Why do you think alot of white players aren't drafted high or at all?
Athleticism, toughness, potential"
That looks more like your opinion rather than what you heard
I can understand the athleticism part. But toughness is just a joke. There are some weak players of every color. Go tell Harpring, Pryzbilla, Brockman, Hinrich, Gortat, etc they are not tough. White guys don't normally get drafted high because there are not as many good ones, period. I don't think toughness has any thing to do with it.
see...thats why i dont like you because you take the part you want to.
GO AHEAD GO LOOK MORE DOWN INTO THAT POST, I STATED IT. GO AHEAD......I knew this post would fine a hater
How dare you talk to a superior like that? Spencer has nearly 300 more points than you!
I remember when Budinger was being talked about...they said is main weakness was "toughness"
I like Budinger and I wanted him to be taken by NY at 29...I'm not racist.
Budinger was not tough. But neither was Jonathen Bender. I didn't read the other thread, but you can't just say white guys are not tough because of a few examples. You can hate on indivdual white players toughness, but to lump them all together is just inaccurate.
While we're off-topic here.. can we ban the word "hater"? there is nothing more annoying than someone calling another a hater because they disagree or call them out on something.
Let's ban the word, scurry. I hate that word.
Alright, I looked at the post after that... And then the 2nd post after you said:
"I agree but there hasn't been alot of white players who got a chance in the L for those reasons.
Im not been racist...being honest"
Why has the number of white players decreased since the 70's and 80's?
I can tell you it's not because white people aren't tough. Black people are more natural athletes. Has nothing to do with toughness.
why are you only saying tough when i said Toughness, Athelticism and potenti
is that a serious question?
Black people are more natural athletes?
Administrator Edit: I know you were joking, but racism isn't funny. Consider yourself warned.
he just said 2 racist comments and no points taken
I said something and I lose points?
Oh asian taxi driver's?
Because as the game has evolved, athleticism has taken a premium. There used to be big white dudes on every team that could rebound set screens and thats about it. But they have been faded out over the decades because now you have to have some more skills if you want to last in the league. It has more to do with athleiticism then toughness. Guys like Laimbeer, Rambis, Eaton, Konacak, they would have trouble playing in todays game, but it wasn't because of toughness. Shaq called Scott Skiles one of the toughest dudes he had ever met and said that Scott punched him one time in the mouth during a fight at practice. Do you think your boy Kenny Andersen would be punching Shaq?
he was being sarcastic Q, you should know him by now.
Nah....now I think ppl are bias.
bias towards blacks or white's ? this ain't 1940 buddy
lol are u surprised by the fact that black people are more natural athletes?
I smell a conspiracy... Why do the admins only pick on me?
cuz ur black
Maybe they are prejudiced against poor people
Suggestion: Try putting a space before the frown, it will look better
What would you do if that guy walked up to you like that?
if those 2 were our admins, i'd want to do one of 'em.. not sayin which..
how old are you?and that lady?
