Same.
Just find another forum for decent sports chat. And live with the insanity here.

Seriously, people... STFU.

Seriously. And every aspect that could legitimately get talked about can fit into an already existing thread. For example, there should be a Kobe Twitter thread, not a completely new thread every time he tweets.

There actually used to be some decent conversations here years ago. The only place you can find that now in the NBA forum is a game day thread for the non-Lakers, Heat, and maybe a couple other teams.

Somebody should just create a thread for individuals. Seriously, biggest reason L.A gets hate is because of Kobe. Biggest reason they get praised on here is also because of him. People hate LeBron because they cheer for Durant, people hate on others because they cheer for LeBron. Jordan fans take shots at everybody, people create threads pimping out there player to piss off the Jordan fans.

If you removed all the people who only care for individuals things wouldn't be nearly as bad. Still have people trolling and hating other teams but there would be far less agenda's and be more conference, rivalry related such as Knick fans vs Heat fans, everybody vs L.A or the large fanbases etc.

The only time I find it is when discussing older players for the most part. Even then, most posters hold a grudge on here, and simply come in, cuss you out and leave the thread. Its hard to find any semblance of normality.

It gets just as bad after Heat games. I've seen entire pages of nothing but deleted threads. It's usually the same group of offenders after both Lakers/Heat games, though. This problem could easily be solved, but Jeff chooses the way we run this board.

It has to get worse before it gets any better. I hate it too, but I am trying to make it so horrible that Jeff "MA AD MONEYZ" gives moderators more power to ban all the retarded trolls that spam all day. Make it so every thread in the NBA forum has to be approved by a moderator, implement harsher rules to discourage trolling, flaming and mindless spam. Tighten this shit up.

I am trying to sacrifice myself to help improve the quality of the forum. But Jeff definitely doesn't care about all that trolling, there are a lot of lurkers out there who visit just to witness the immature wars and get a laugh. That = more Ad money for Jeff. Why would he clean up the forum and promote more boring, methodical discussion? Cheap shits and giggles attract more people, you appeal to the ignorant majority, not the mature, objective minority that God forbid appreciates basketball and hates no player/team.

Unfortunately, I can't be on this board 24/7. I work a lot of nights. When I'm on here, I do my best.

I honestly couldn't care less whether the Lakers win or lose, btw.
