Recommend two or three Clapton albums for me to purchase, with reasons to support your choices. Then I'll purchase at least one of them and get back to you.

I'd take Green, he has so much more potential. Thomas is kind of stuck at the end of the bench right now with the Bulls. Both are very inconsistent..but I'd say Green has more of an up-side. Very very talented, much like a younger T-Mac...

Tyrus was really productive with the short minutes he was given. Also when talking about a player who can change the tempo of a game, Thomas is the man. When talking about his defense, he has the potential to become one of the best all around defenders of the modern era soon. I see Tyrus's upside as huge and I also heard that he's really working on his jump shot. I know it's early, but I wouldn't be surprised if Thomas got most improved player this season.

How many of you have actually seen Gerald play? I'm not talking about when he comes to town, I mean watching him play, more than three games a year.

Half if not more of you have no knowledge on this kid whatsoever, and it's ridiculous that you're even forming opinions, and spewing them out like they mean something.

Stop wasting our time. Stop watching highlight clips of him on YouTube, and reading his stats on NBA.com. You're only posting to drive your post count up, other than that, you serve no purpose in this thread.

Unfortunately, I'm not really familiar with Clapton's stuff with the Yardbirds. Any Cream greatest hits album, "Time Pieces" (his own greatest hits, but missing some newer stuff), he's got some unbelieveable new(er) blues stuff out, the "Slowhand" album was classic, as was "Layla"... shit... I really can't decide. I'd advise grabbing one of his solo greatest hits and one of Cream's...but then you'll miss out on a lot of great cuts, like stuff from the "Unplugged" album and a lot of unreal blues tracks. Depends what you're looking for, I guess. I can't narrow it town to 20-25 tracks for a guy who's been pumping out ridiculously unreal music since my dad was a kid. Sorry, man. Whatever you get, you won't go wrong with. If he has any live albums out aside from "Unplugged" those are must-gets, too.

I just finished learning this specific performance for my guitar class. Best one I've ever seen.

Green because at 6'6" and 200 pounds he can play shooting guard or small forward. Thoams doesn't really have a position because he doesn't have the skill to play SF or the size to play PF.

Am I the only Bulls fan who chose Green? Maybe I need to become more of a homer?

You are correct picking Green. Thomas is a tweener but not ina good way like Lamar Odom. btw Megadeth kicks ass!

Tyrus Thomas is still more of an energy player off the bench... doubt he can really be productive when starting... unlike Gerald Green who had a few good games at the end of the season... Green's ball-handling and range will also make him more starter-prepared than TT...

Easily one of the more rational and mature posts I've ever seen on ISH. Way to handle that like an adult.

In case anyone is wondering, JDG is replying to a rather unfortunate posting that a mod decided the board could do without.

You didn't take it down yourself??? Get it put back up you lil b i t c h.

They talk **** in the NBA, why can't **** be talked here. Realmenweargreen had things bleeped out in his post. He obviously used offensive language and took shots at me. I am the only one who get's blamed. This is BS. A mod can talk **** to me but i can't say anything back. I'm cool, i'm a mod for a basketball message board. Gotta have a lot of free time to be a "mod". Loser

I'd take Green. I think he is a potential start. Thomas is more of a solid complimentary player IMO.

Tyrus Thomas doesn't have all star potential..Green does.
