How long have you been coming to this site?

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 first on this site in 2007.

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.

A While

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 remember Yao Ming was #1 on

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

joined the forum back in 2009... But I was already reading prospects way back since 2000 (the Fizer era) yeah! That time I was 12 but then again, this site has helped me increase my knowledge of the game and its players and thus I am what I am now in terms of basketball knowledge because of this site... I have knowledge on the game itself but this site TOTALLY sharpens it more... PS:I miss the color codings of different mock draft eras in this site... I remember 2005 having a dark green, 2006 having a dark blue and 2007 having that blue green color in its background... Aran, please bring it back and oh yeah, bring back those old profiles... I still enjoy reading on how you compare DeShawn Stevenson to Michael Jordan...LOL

I've been reading and

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

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'll never forget it. I

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've been coming for a couple

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.

Follow up ^

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 the 03 draft. I signed

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.

Since the 2000 Draft

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.

I started coming to the site

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.
