Rookie of the Month - GAH! This is tough, between MagicKnick and Future of the Game. Going to flip a coin and....My vote goes to MagicKnick
Most Improved - TheTruth87 or KevinDurantRocks...I'm going to go with TheTruth due to him always putting his input while KevinDurantRocks doesn't post as much.
On The Rise - I know I won't win, I haven't been on as much as usual since the second game of Summer League for the Rockets, but for me this is between Mikenike, Knicksboy34, and Iguadola9, the next two in line would be between Birdman and butidonthavemoney. Ok...now Mikenike or Iguadola9....Um. COIN TIME! haha. Mikenike
MVP - 1. Maravich44 2. Gatorheels 3. yupyup 4.llperez22 5. scout4real.
This is alot harder then I thought it'd be.
cool, am i eligible to vote being a rookie and all?
ouch left off the list
Most Improved: Tezo83
On the Rise :Iguodala9
ROM: FutureOfTheGame...been here for less than a day and has already brought a ton of insight and sparked great discussions
Most Improved: TheTruth, i dont feel right voting on this one since i still learning guys characters, but TheTruths basketball knowledge seemed to have increase everyday that i've been here
OnTheRise: Knicksboy34, he says he wants to be a great GM/Analyst when hes older, and based on his knowledge of the game for his age, I can tell that hes really legit..he eats, breaths, and lives basketball, this guy has a great future
MVP: Gatorheels, smart as hell..simple as that
co rookie of the month-magicknick
on the rise-mikenike
Nah future, you joined yesterday...for you to even be a nominee is huge for you...look how much respect you gained in 18 hours!
If we registered at the same time, ROM would be yours 100%
Man, don't sweat it. Only reason he got my vote was the fact that the Penny I flipped landed on Heads which was him.
I haven't got a vote as well. I mean, it isn't the most legit way of doing these awards, but at least he's trying. For that, an applause needs to be given to TheTruth87. haha.
I'm just an old verteran on this site, but didn't really start posting at the beginning. I just came to look at the Mocks, but I forgot...one person has been here longer then me. I always forget the original time I joined...I never use to come on this site...haha. Always on Hoopshype.com, but finally I decided to look when I saw an interesting forum topic and gave my opinion. Then on, I started doing it more and more.
Ahhh man when were the signups for this? I'm freekin P0d. Aww.... Future, tezo, knicksboy, gator
Rookie of the month nominees- Futureofthegame
on the rise -Knicksboy34
I can't believe I was even nominated. I truly appreciate being thought of and to RickyRubio for voting for me. I really didn't think I would get one vote when I saw I was nominated. I felt like the Super Bowl team that was just happy to be there. And we all know what happens to that team.
kinda cool to be mentioned in honoraries. thanks
man.keep up the good work.
I enjoy discussing hoops with you guys.
Can I be most inspirational? ha ha
Rookie: Magicknick, hands down.
Rookie of the Month: MagikKnick, but keep up the good work FutureoftheGame!
Most Improved: Thanks for the love thetruth87, but I'm going to have to go with rtbt. That boy is on the money.
On the Rise: This is tough lol. I honestly like the whole list, especially iguodala9 and mikenike... but I'm going with doubledribbler.
MVP: A LOT of MVP worthy players, but I'm going with kacey4321. He doesn't post a ton, but when he does... He says something intelligent. He has a lot of knowledge about the game. He's level headed and respects everyone's opinion. He backs up his arguments and he's clear about it. It also doesn't hurt that he won the mock draft contest and is the points leader. xbadgerhustler and llperez22... Y'all are DEFINITELY in the MVP conversation.
i didnt know kacey4321 accomplish all that.
thanks for leaving me out again.
ROM- i havent seen many of their posts so i dont feel comfortable voting on that one. MOST IMPROVED- i dont know how he improved but i like the way he thinks. kevindurantrocks. OTR- it has to be iguodala9, with apologies to knicksboy. MVP- i think it goes to sheltwon, he argues his points in a respectful manner and i think many people could learn from him. also, i believe he is objective in his thinking by not favoring "HIS" team but looking at things from most perspectives.
More love please!
Found it on another website. I seen this one and a Greg Oden One...vote 4 me!
put Josh Huestis, and Mattisick on the list.
you get deleted again?
u guys are ridiculous... lol
best comedic value: butidonthavemoney's pictures.
closest to getting kicked off for promoting his own site: knicksboy
most questionable prediction from a generally smart guy: gatorheels~ GS in the playoffs
most biased towards a player: Me~ russell westbrook
most biased against a player: josh~ jrue holiday
biggest whiners: knicks fans
person making the money off your our obsession with basketball: aran smith
those are mostly the truth... although i think sheltwon might be more biased towards sessions and mikenike might be more biased towards wall... it's a toss up between those.
i'm also starting to buy into the GS making the playoffs theory. I keep forgetting that Ellis had that injury to start the year. If he's on they have a chance... but I wouldn't bet on them making the playoffs
all im saying is those are funny!
Wins the good Sportsmanship award.
xbadger- I would bet on them making the playoffs ha. You are always giving me a hard time about that prediction haha. Sorry dude I just have faith in that loaded roster. Also McCants is a true sleeper...u will see haha
rookie of the month- magicknick
most improved- thetruth87
on the rise- to be honest all of yall are on the rise
mvp- I don't think their is a true mvp. A lot of smart people on this site. I'll give my vote to DHamp haha cuz he always gives a straight up opinion & never sits on the fence even though I disagree with him most of the time lol.
Thanks for all the love.... I'm honored. I'm not the mvp.
Have any of you that listen to hiphop/rap heard that new song by Game titled "I'm so Wavy"?....he disses Jay Z bad
I will have to check that out... and i know you would bet on them making the playoffs ;)
I don't know if I would call their roster loaded, but you are entitled to your opinion.
When I think of an MVP I like to evaluate it on how much I want to read that persons posts.
Quite frankly I've made it known around the board that I'm not the biggest D Hamp Fan. Honestly I think he's full of himself. The Man can argue though, but should nowhere be mentioned as an MVP on this site. His claim to fame is pretty much on his signature alone.
Next you have the Sheltwon argument. Honestly I respect the dude whether he believes me or not, but you can't say wow I think this guy honestly knows his shit when he thinks Ramon Sessions is a top 5 point guard right now. Made love to you dude, but he's 2 years away from being a household name.
Theirs so many sides to the game of basketball that can be covered. I know gatorheels has me on lock down when it comes to the college game. I make it a point to everyone I'm not the biggest fan of the NBA having a "free farm system." I'd definitely take him on in an argument of the NBA game though. Theirs a lot of respect for him and I.
I know D Grizzly are biased upon one another because we mostly agree on the same topic, but it's always nice to know theirs a fellow Memphis fan that actually takes his team as serious as I do.
Scout4real,llperez22,yupyup,xbadgerhustler definitely know their shit more than a lot of other people here. If I see one of their posts I'm more inclined to read it through regardless of length.
I think I'm the only one on here who hasn't seen a kacey post. I don't like how points were given for performance on the mock draft contest because the top 5 or something hardly contribute to the site.
I guess when it goes to an overall MVP on the site, I'm not going to be cocky and say myself, but It's gotta be gatorheels. Dude just knows his shit inside and out if not as much, more than I do in my mind.
i meant to ask you this. wtf is up with that picture?
that is bucky the badger dude. DUH
Gatorheels, where have you been?! Thanks for the shoutout. I can't say their is a MVP on this site because we all know a lot of basketball.
Auber, I know we aren't each others biggest fans, but I have been pretty calm for the last month (I've even gave you points all last week). I haven't been in an argument on this site in a long while.
I have some really good posts over the last month, but you wasn't on the site to see them because you wasn't posting much until last week, so you missed them. But, for you to say I'm on recognized for my signiture is wrong. Heck, that's the reason I had negative points until last week. Thanks for saying I'm a good arguer though. Much appreciated.
Dhamp..the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.
im glad you on online. now we can argue
Ha ha ha. Only if it doesn't go over board. I've been keeping a low profile lately, as far as negative comments are concerned.
Dhamp..the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.
I won't be on it for all if not most of August. I'm moving into my new place this weekend and will be working 16 hours a day monday-thursday. Shit's going to blow, but I need the money that badly right now.
No consideration? no love for JoeWolf,...oh well,i'v had some sweet posts and im pretty knowledgeable, but i'll admit it, im not particularly cool
Anybody that campaigns for recognition probably shouldnt be considered. Its just annoying. Not naming any names.
haha i try to never campaign.
not you birdman. haha.
i was just kidding dude
Not you either. you just reminded me.
who was it?
Figure it out.
