The things you hate on this site

Now this is a great site, but there's definitely those little things that annoy you on this site, here are mine, add your own.

I hate it when a player has a good game and people say hes a superstar, its annoying judge off the body of work. Ill admit it doesn't happen as much as it used too thankfully.

Overrating measurements really annoys me, i mean take a guy like Saer Sene, he measured amazingly, and is basically out of the nba. I'm much more interested in team workouts, i think the main factor is College production, and how their skills translate, and of course work ethic too. And you cant forget injury concerns too.

Knicks fans. Lol Knicksfan7, magikknick, and knicksboy aren't that bias, but there's too many bias knicks fans. They basically talk in threads like they already have the guys in free agency, and overrate their talent, and especially Eddy Currys contract. I mean A contract like Erik Dampiers has way more value because its not guaranteed, and theres a lot of expiring s in that price range that can actually play, its the most overrated, and over talked about contract in the nba. As least their not as bad as realgm, one fan said He wouldn't even offer Gallenarri if they were to trade for Chris Paul.

add your own.

I hate when people refuse to

I hate when people refuse to listen to your statements when they disagree with them and when people think others are stupid for expressing their opinion, I mean it's one thing to call Trevor Ariza the best player in the league but if someone says it's Kevin Durant, it's their opinion. Also hate the millions of mocks and trade rumors.

1) People who don't

1) People who don't understand jokes/think that every post has to be basketball related.

"Well, why don't you put it in the off-topic section?"

When is the last time you visited the off-topic section?

...
........

Exactly.

2) The constant mock draft postings. (In case you didn't know, we can see your mock draft by clicking the link under your name.)

3) People who complain about points. I would put people who give themselves points, but that actually makes me laugh. I really can't believe that someone would be that insecure.

I get annoyed

I get annoyed when a person createsa mock draft and loses like 23 points over it and only2 people explain why they disagreed with it. Don't take away point because you don't agree and not explain why you did it. People should explain why they dont agree with it or if a player is being taken too low or too high.

Seriously...

The most annoying thing on this site is when people complain about annoying things on this site...like you are all doing now. I see it like 5x a day. If you don't like something, who cares. It's a damn internet forum, take it as it is.

Not really.

I am not complaining about it. I am just saying that people shouldn't complain which is not complaining, it is just saying. A statement. But I see what you mean hah. Even people that complain don't annoy me, I just don't get why they do, it's a good site you know? I'm just glad these forums are filled now a days. Back in like 02-05, this site never had anyone on the forum, and it would take like 2 days to get one response. That was something I would have to say I could complain about haha.

This site is great but it's okay for people to say what they don't like about it.

This is why politic never work..

Haha an internet forum can never even get positive feedback from most people. People are too opinionated. Well not too opinionated, but they think their opinion of what is right and good, should be everyones. Diversity and originality is what makes the world go round. Figuratively.

Yeah obviously it is okay for people to say what they want and to complain...it's a free country. But why complain? Why be negative instead of positive? Never do you see a topic about things you like about this site, you know? It's like the News...Never do you see a top story something good that happens, it's always crime or something bad and devastating. I guess that's just what the common man would rather hear? I dunno, not me, but that's just my opinion.

I never said it

I never said it wasn't okay to say that. I just said it's annoying and I don't get why people do. It's not even really annoying, I'll take that back, I just don't get why people are so negative. And I didn't say this site was perfect. I said it was good. Even you said it was great, which is better than good, so I don't get what you mean by no site is perfect. No thing is perfect, make the best of it.

POTENTIAL TRADES

I cannot stand all the "potential trade" threads on here. They are so stupid and pointless and serve no meaning. I could understand if two teams were in legit trade talks (example: i can handle the sixers/t-wolves trade ideas because everyone knows that could happpen). But alot of people are randomly throwing out trade ideas that are never gonna happen. It makes no sense at all.

I hate double posts but am very impressed by the rare quadruple posts.

In other news it annoys me posting on the bottom of a long thread because nobody reads what I'm writing (nobody probably does anyway). But much like this post, nobody sees the bottom of the thread.

I also hate the fact that ojj and money don't post new content or threads every 10 minutes to make me laugh

I don't like when guys base

I don't like when guys base THEIR opinion off of what Marc Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy, Charles Barkley etc etc say. This is a forum, and if you should have your own opinion. What's the point of getting on something like a basketball forum if you don't even speak your own mind about basketball? You'll never ever hear me say something like "Jeff Van Gundy said Deron Williams is the best PG so obviously I'm not alone in my thinking" or "Marc Jackson thinks Lebron is the best player in the NBA and he played in the NBA for 50 years so he knows what he's talking about." That's their opinion, sometimes I'll agree with what they say. But that's not how I base my opinion. You can disagree with everything I say, but one thing you can't say about me and it be the truth, is that I'm not super opinionated. I feel everybody else should be too.

Oh, and I appreciate ButlerBulldogs, Knicksfan7 (who I've become very good friends with), Llperez, Rudeboy, BothTeamsPlayedHard, Sheltwon, rtbt, Butidonthavemoney, OJJ, Mikenike, yupyup, Knicksboy32, shylo, Scarecrow, blazermann, hellokittyhater, gredoden08, Spencer, Quincey, Revenger, McDunkin, and DanEBoy. Basically all the guys that will argue with me and/or have great points that make me think. It's fun to argue with people who know just as much about basketball as I do, most of my friends (alright none of my friends) don't love the game and know about it as I do. That's why this site is sooooooo AMAZING

Racial Stereotyping in Basketball

As most of the regulars on this website already know, racial stereotyping is one of my pet peeves. I'm not saying the people who do it are racists, but why can't they think out of the box? Come on guys, this is the 21st Century. It's time to leave those old ways of thinking back where they belong, in the past.

The NBA has approximately 450 players and about 80% of them are black. However, whenever a white guy is the subject of a thread, the posters will bring up the name of every white guy in the league when making a comparison. Most of the time those comparisons are absurd. Sometimes they'll even go back 10 or 15 years to find another white guy who retired. Are you serious?

One would think with so many black players that at least some of them would be thrown in to the mix when looking for comparisons to white players. But that rarely happens.

Of course it goes the other way too. Black guys are almost always compared only with other black players. However, considering the fact that most of the players in the league are black, this one is a little more understandable.

what i love about this site

what i love about this site is that it is a small enough chat community that we learn to respect each others opinion. I mean we have fans of every team on here and we dont just get all biased and talk sh.it to each other. There are other chat sites where its all F your team and you're an idiot. Anything reasonable gets ignored. So cheers to all the guys who argue their point but keep things respectful since it's not like any of us are actually out there on the court making an impact on the game.

I like... Fan/Team Diversity:

I like...

Fan/Team Diversity: I don't get to watch every team in the NBA. There are fans of every team on here. I learn a lot from them and have learned to respect their teams. There's something good about every team... Even the Clippers.

Aran: I think it's good that he makes posts from time to time and replies to users. I think it's good that the admins make posts also. They're real hands on and you have to like that, unless you're someone who's gotten banned.

Countdown to the Draft: JNixon is the man. I read these faithfully. I think his scouting reports are on point.

Smart Users: There are a lot of smart people on here. It wasn't always this way either. Now... There are definitely some idiots on here who you get somewhat dumber after reading their posts... But overall... This site has a lot of intelligent and thought provoking users.

rtbt - that reminds me, for some reason it bothers me that the only comparisons for Robbie Hummel/Kyle Singler/Gordan Hayward people have is Mike Dunleavy jr. at some point in his career...or mike miller sometimes...im not that big on any of the 3 but it bothers me and i dont know why.

McDunkin: It Also Bothers Him

McDunkin, I was reading the comparisons for Gordon Hayward and of course they were all white guys. On the list of similar players were:

Tyler Hansbrough
JJ Reddick
Adam Morrsion

I defy anyone to tell me how any of the above players have anything in common with Gordon Hayward - LOL.

This thread is hilarious.

This thread is hilarious. DanEBoy was spot on with that Faried withdrawing from the draft link on the user's section on the right side.

I always like the input people give on this site. I always prefer to read something that is real. Scouting reports or updates on prospects and user's opinions on those subjects. I don't like the constant posting of user mocks. Some people seem to post their mock after every change they make to it. I don't like all this fantasy league, fantasy draft, best GM of the site, Philly trade rumors talk.

But everyone comes here for their own reason. I really think topics could be filtered better to the correct forum section and eventually people will go to that forum to read about that.

If this forum changed its format to the V Bulletin then it would be better. But that costs money.

7, I never said I read that

7, I never said I read that D-Wade is a better fit for Dallas. I made that up all me.

Anyway. I don't hate alot on this site to be honest. I just hate the people who slow it down with slow posts about BS that has no chance of working. I hate seeing this:

John Wall and LBJ in Washington?

Chris Bosh to Indiana?

The Bucks should move Brandon Jennings for John Wall

or the every day:

WHO THIS YEAR'S BUST?
