I did, of course, root for the Celtics against LA in recent years.

Agreed, I have different political views, but respect his knowledge and am very impressed with his knowledge on a variety of subjects.

I'd also mention ThaRegul8r, Psileas, Fatal9(doesn't post here anymore,though) and KBlaze off the top of my head. I'm probably forgetting some, but I primarily post on the NBA board.

OT: The discussion here (on the NBA Board, don't spend much time on OTC) is definitely at a higher level than it was at my last stop (ESPN NBA General, ugh ). If you parse out the trolling, this is probably the best basketball forum out there.

I would say RGM has the best pure basketball talk. This place is way too diluted with Kobe And Lebron talk, and isn't moderated enough IMO. However the OTC has its great moments, although it used to have more interesting characters a couple years back

by pure do you mean Modded to the point that everyone just regurjitates the same tired ____________( fill in copy and pasted stats from BR)

Nothing pure at all from RGM....they mainly have the same tired topics up all week ( lots of them copied from ISH)....and of course its modded to death so you have less troll topics.....but it also provides zero fun interaction.

I have an account for there for over 5 years .......Place is dead now ....


Knowlegable posters and stupid Trolls>overly Modded site with posters posting stats like spam bots.

Well personally, I usually take my talents to the Raptors board and I can say that without a doubt, the topics there are more in depth and thought out (when not in full panic mode, or sheep mode) than anything close to here. From proper cap breakdowns, to playbook dissecting, just more advanced critical thinking in general.

The main general board is somewhat boring I tend to agree but again, much more mature and less cluttered than over here. I will go back and forth between the two as my personal preference

You can't judge a persons intelligence on a forum.

Some of the more intelligent posters here in reality are trolls on this site.

The ones that put in effort to appear smart are often not that intelligent at all.

If you are an American you are coming from pretty far back too.

I could see that.....ISH is to Mosswood park and Rucker as RGM is to Brown University YMCA and the Princeton offense.

I find that difficult to believe. Trolling is 24/7 and eventually infiltrates everything. Even the people who don't troll are almost always carrying agendas.

To me there are a couple great posters who you can have engaging discussions.

Anyway I joined the site because Dklaer is a tactical genius

people who seldom if ever try to draw attention to themselves but who consistently find excellent points to make in a low-key, friendly way. you'd almost think that they're aussie or some shite. :P
