Default there seems to be a lot of casual / non bball enthusiast posting here

i figure all posters here were at least lured to this site through the love of bball and bball discussions. but i see plenty of no knowledge guys like b-low, meticode, primetime, dooms, baldie, red dot indian posters, all the "nese" asians, just sort of stay at home in the OTC, never contributing to the Main forum.

Most of these guys don't know shit about basketball. They just post about bullshit where they can get away with their lack of knowledge. Guy like B-low and the anime virgin are great examples. You'll see them post a paragraph about Miley Cyrus, but they couldn't tell you what a 3-2 zone is.

I don't know shit about basketball and only really like to post about the Mavs during game threads.

Also like reading stuff about Dirk and the Mavs on the NBA forum but I rarely post because most of the main forum is garbage.

OTC is more chill and most of the people that post in it are pretty laid back people. Better discussion.

you're a ***. NBA forum is 95% bulshti so I post there less often. Hell, I still probably post at least 150 times in the NBA forum a week. Nobody ever talks about the Magic so it gets boring quickly. Since your favorite team is talked about 24/7 you don't understand

Exactly, NBA forum is terrible to post in in the best of times. I frequent there obviously but there's hardly a thread worth posting in thats a genuine thread or just making fun of Euroleague.

At least in the OTC there's some super chill people here that are actually pretty cool, this is actually my favourite forum on ISH.

I view the other forum just about the same amount I do this one, I just never see anything worth commenting on there.

Main forum is a piece of shit. This is coming from a former/part-time troll. There aren't many good discussions that take place and 90% of the topics deal with Lebron and Kobe. OTC is a better place in terms of talking with normal people. I still post quite a bit on the NBA forum when the season doe
