    Bones? I only know you from the forum. I assume you are a decent hard working young man that has a lot of potential to accomplish the things you set out to do in life.
    How about we try not to get things crossed up here? I assume you have no idea what i do or what kind of energy i expel towards people because if you are basing it off an internet forum you might be mistaken.
    Again. Anytime you would like to sit and have a conversation i am more than willing.

    Bury the hatchet on this. I will do my best keep things on the up and up in the future. Not exactly sure how the road got messed up in the first place but the only way to fix it is to start somewhere. I'll take the first step.

    Just because hes not a selfish person doesnt mean hes not a selfish player.

    I'm surprised i actually had to say something that is so logical. Like stotts being one of the worst coaches ever. Just logical.

    I understand what you are saying. But pretty much every quote about CJ is about his willingness to let Dame be the man and right now he is letting Dame get his. I don't know CJ personally and i don't play with him. But i have yet to read about any player that has ever played with him call a "Selfish Player". On the contrary. They say just the opposite.

    I'll try and outline what annoys me in a way that might help us find some common ground. This in no way means I think I'm better or worse, just talking about what I see:

    I'm not going on here to seek conflict with you... If I ever voice displeasure with you, it's not going to be about your opinion anymore, it'd be in reaction to something you're saying.

    I don't think any of my posts in here were trollish, and I wasn't trying to annoy people. I was reacting to what I saw out their on the court, and I'm personally invested in the team. You don't have to agree with what I see, I don't really try to change anyone's minds on Stotts in here anymore, I just post what I see. When I see what I think is a problem with things like our scheme, I'll mention it. You can disagree. it's perfectly fine! But I feel like a lot of times you're disrespectful about it:
    So here I am, happy about the win and I come on here and read some disrespectful blanket statements that don't directly reference me, but I know you're applying them to me: "That's why I laugh at the negs around this site", "They think they could run or coach the team better". "it's FLAT OUT COMICAL", etc...

    Just seems like you're trying to put down people on this forum without mentioning them so that you can say "It wasn't directed at you, not everything is about you" if someone doesn't like it.

    It's the same thing... I feel like you know what you're doing more-so than you let on. I just don't know why it has to be like that.

    I'm not perfect, but I've tried to stop going after you or trying to change your mind on things. It's fine if you disagree, at this point all I want is to say what I think about what's happening on the floor and talk basketball! I want to cheer when good things happen, vent a little when the game gets frustrating, and have no issues! Instead I read that and it feels like you're mocking me and others here, and then when I take issue you pull the classic "This is why people don't come here anymore" under some quoted tweets of mine where I'm just reacting to what I see on the court, among some of the other things I outlined above.

    I'm reactionary when it seems I'm being mocked or disrespected for no reason... That's not even that upsetting to me, there will just be continuous arguments and conflict at that point. Maybe one day I'll have enough self-control where I won't be reactionary at all, but I think I'm better than I was in the past... Regardless, right now I think things would be fine if it wasn't for stuff like this because I'm not trying to force my thoughts on you, ridicule you for yours, or mock you for them. If I slip up and do that, you can say something about them and I'll try to make sure I don't. I'd just appreciate the same in return, and I think it'd solve a lot of our problems. Our opinions still might annoy each other or we may disagree about things, but it shouldn't lead to this type of conflict in my opinion.

    Good for him. The stats and eye test of him as a basketball player (Again, not person) says something different.

    Nothing logical about saying Stotts is one of the worst coaches in the NBA, but don't let that stop you from making illogical posts.

    Please quit. He already said his post wasn't about you and just meant in general. If you took it personally then that's on your conscious, not kj. Learn to let it go and you will be better off for it.

    KJ, that's kind of an olive branch, but do you think it would have been a better one if you left out about two sentences that sounded quite confrontational?

    There was some imagined slight after Kyrie didn't mention all of his teammates. Perhaps Damian doesn't want anyone upset

    I already know I'm right in what I spoke. It's obvious to people who understand. You'll get there one day, too. I'll have cookies.

    Of course you think you are right. That in itself doesn't mean it's right though as you are in the minority by a pretty large margin. Stotts is simply not the worst NBA coach and McCollum is not a bad NBA player. Can you provide any articles to suggest your opinion is correct?
