Nominations for the 3rd Annual NBADraft.net User Awards Extravaganza!!!
Since there is basically NO basketball-related activities going on right now, what better time to indulge in that ego-stroking event we like to call "The User Awards". In this thread, nominate your friends and your homies and your compadres for the awards that you feel they have worked so hard to deserve. I will soon create a ballot thread once nominations are in. Try not to nominate yourself. And defending winners are listed and are automatically on that particular ballot:
1. Forum MVP (MikeyVTheDon)
2. Smartest User (IndianaBasketball)
3. Funniest User (McDunkin)
4. Most Creative (OrangeJuiceJones)
5. Hottest in the Office (Rudeboy)
6. Best Topic (McDunkin Interviewed on Letterman)
7. Forum Villain (8th Deadly Sin)
8. Best Newcomer (Aamir, but we won't put him on the ballot because he is no longer new)
9. Most Improved (OhCanada, but ditto^)
10. Most Underrated (JoeWolf)
11. Best Troll (ProudGrandpa)
12. Best Avatar (tli232)
13. Most Mediocre/Average
14. The English Teacher Award (for impeccable grammar, spelling, and punctuation)
Have at it, boys
I swear we just did these at like the beginning of the summer.
We didnt. trust me. That last legit one, with a full nomination and voting process was last October.I tried this in April but it never got off the ground
My opinion, Surve and Omphalos are very good. I will usually read whatever they have to say on the matter or if they posted a topic. I don't believe 8th Deadly Sin is a villain either. I don't mind him, but the majority people here dislike F_S.
Feeding the ole hogs again ehhh???
I'm hungry! Arugggggggggghhhhhh!
Have at it!
Anyways, I'm nominating and voting in African Baller, he has been a HUGE influence on me in my short existence on this site...
Nominating AfricanBaller for Most Underrated, and Forum MVP.
Can we just get rid of everyone that has a _______ Baller name?
Joe Wolf finally got some recognition when people voted him most underrated...I think he's the 3rd best poster on this site behind IndianaBasketball & JNix.......
Some more Underrated posters are:
1.Surve 2.Paradigm 3.Omphalos 4.ProvinceFriars 5. 220 6.Marcus Fizer 7.UNC Basketball Alum
cream of the crop is
providence, wolf, indiana and mickey: i can safely say these all know way more ball than i do, they have been following for longer though...(not saying they are the only ones that do btw), but they follow ALL the rules and are very little controversial :/
i like igetbuckets, b-ball-fan, omphalos, chewy, fastandfurious, aamir, teamjosh, ll_perez, j-nix, y2g, for_never_ever (not because he named me) but he's one of my favorite "thread starters".... i might be missing some
AND WHERE THE HELL IS MR.19813?????????? one of the best posters here, he just vanished. we seemed to agree on most of our beliefs
Brazilian_Baller isn't AfricanBaller your other account ???? I don't care if it is, I'm just curious.
Caught red handed
antawn jamison(forum killer) award: uncbasketballalum: 92% of his posts are new threads what a jackass
No self nominating? Dang. I thought I did an OK job in my short time here.
<----- Just look at that sexy post count ratio
That's fine, just re-nominate everyone except best new user and most improved, and nominate ProudGrandpa for best avatar. I like Kyrylo Fesenko, If he'd grow up he be a good backup C.
Forum MVP - MikeyVTheDon
Smartest User - There are a lot of smart users, but I still think BothTeamPlaysHard has an NBA, college and overseas library stored in his head. MikeyVTheDon and JoeWolf1 get honorable mention.
Funniest User - Leroy Jenkins. McDunkin is runner up lol
Most Creative: Tyrober. I feel he makes the most creative forum threads.
Forum Villain: European Baller. When he shows up, a riot follows. Jlv2012 gets honorable mention... The crazy thing about Jlv2012 is that he could probably be one of the smartest users if he wanted to.
Best Newcomer - Siggy... He knows ball.
Most Improved: There are a lot of users who have improved, but FastAndFurious stands out.
Most Underrated: There are a lot of underrated users, but I'm going to go with Allen_Iverson_3... I think Omphalos, Ghettosermon, Hotsnot, Igetbuckets99, Bloodshy and CodySLC are underrated.
The English Teacher Award (for impeccable grammar, spelling, and punctuation): MikeyVTheDon (He types his posts in MLA or APA format lol)
2.SMARTEST USER-J Nix
3.FUNNIEST USER-Leroy Jenkins...Leroy's family for Centuries have always been funny & a little OFF..Leroy's Cavemen Ancestors,didnt Ride a Rock to school like all the other kids..They Rode on a Short Yellow Pebble.....
5.HOTTEST IN THE OFFICE-Should be changed to Jack of All Trades..
6.BEST TOPIC- Post An Amazing Statistic...Everyone Chimed in on that post...
8.BEST NEWCOMER-Tom Shoe
9.MOST IMPROVED-Memphis Madness
That's wrong lol.
haha Rudeboy, because Mysterion called you out 1 time he is a forum villian?
I'll never get the respect I deserve...
there should be a "Best clevage in a Avatar pic Award"...
Scarecrow your posts always get the most comments....
Wizard of oz is good also, but he gets hated on for being critical of players that are too hyped up.
He also said LeBron has no strengths outside of his athleticism and said he's nowhere near the best player in the NBA.
I didn't say he had no strengths oustide of his athleticism, I just said that he had no clear cut dominate trait last season. He was a knock down shooter (I don't have the percentages, but going by the eye test, his jumper regressed tremedously last season), his post game improved but still wasn't what you'd call great), and his driving game IMO wasn't nearly as good as it has been most of hid career. His post started looking a lot better in the playoffs though, and he became a MUCH better off-the-ball player last yr.
I attributed all those things to his decline in athleticism, but in the Olympics, he looked just as athletic as ever. He did a lot more creating off te dribble out to the 3-point line. Now if he can take that shot-creating ability into the season w/ his new and improved post game and cutting ability, WATCH OUT!
Btw, my new username is DMV_LeGenD.
I didn't see him write that. He is one of the few guys that didn't go completely in the John Wall hype. He also stated James Hardin is not a first option and shouldn't get a Max deal. James Hardin in the Playoffs showed us that.
Keep em coming
I never get any love. No newcomer award or anything? Looks like I'll cry myself to sleep again.
Lol. Don't cry
Cynthia def. biggest troll! That girl is a DUDE!!
Brazilian_Baller can you hook me up with tickets to the Olympic ceremony in 2016?
Its in Rio De Janeiro...and I already know its gonna be...
Appreciate the people who showed me love @IndianaBasketball and F_S, coming from IndyBasketball tho that's big on this site.
Bloodshy knows his Stuff....He's really Underrated
I guess I might have to wait tell next year.
Mysterion has had a gripe with me every since i said something about how he use to post..It wasnt just me,everyone use complained about it ...
This guy? Mysterion
The guy with 17 posts in 2 years?
The guy with 125 points on 17 posts?
Either you are thinking of the wrong guy or you dont know what your talking about
I usually don't participate in these, but I find it a travesty that Bothteamsplayhard hasn't been mentioned. His posts are condescending , but still more insightful then other users.
