    Not to Zach's level. You can pretty much count on what you are going to get night-in, night-out from every other player on this team. Even Enes and Rodney now that they've had time to acclimate.

    You know what moves they favor. You know where on the floor they need to get to have a good shot. You know what is going to get them into trouble when they start doing it. You know what kind of an effort you are going to get. Pretty consistently.

    I never feel that way with Zach. One night he is money from 3. The next night he is shooting rockets off the backboard from 5 feet away. One night his hands look terrific. The next night he might as well have hooks. One night he's blocking everything. The next night he is fouling everything.

    About the only thing I can be sure to get from him is him swearing so loudly when he messes up that every mic in the Moda Center can pick it up.

    There really are nights where I see him make two bad plays really early and I just feel his head isn't into it and I just hope we don't have to rely on him that night because it's like having a sixth player on the other team.

    Just for the record; I think Nurkalicious hasn't been on here before. He just sounds different. I think he has something to contribute and may actually want to get along with people. I would make a suggestion , Nurk, be careful about exaggerating and try not to be too defensive. (I know that's tough for me too).

    still bitching about comments from days ago...?

    “Aminu is not a vital part of the teams future.”

    Chief has been the most consistent player besides Dame in the post-Aldridge era. Your guess is I’m a fraud? My guess is you’re a bandwagon fan who doesn’t know much at all about Chief.

    Gee wiz Batman. Maybe you are the baddies and your forum isn’t remotely friendly and will alienate a new user for one comment about beloved perfect work-ethic Lillard...

    “We’ve obsessively berated the new user for the past 4 days and accused him of being a troll/fraud without engaging with him in a respectful manner once. I can’t understand why he isn’t being more friendly!”

    I haven’t mentioned the player who broke his leg and hasn’t played in weeks, nor is expected to play for another year.

    Highly suspicious!!

    How'd you know he was wearing a Batman jersey yesterday? Was a video of our pickup game posted?

    Again it’s not even about minutes. I’d be fine with Lillard playing 30 MPG if he was moving on offense and playing hard on defense. He doesn’t. He conserves energy on many plays. He doesn’t have the conditioning to play 48 min effectively like Kobe could.

    Hint:

    “He’s not as good as Kobe” ~=~ “he sucks!”

    Thanks for revealing my private info on the internet of a forum who is extremely hostile to me. Top quality moderating

    you literally said it yesterday. You do understand what time stamps are, right?

    And "still"? This is the first I've said anything to you. I've been hibernating.

    I like how you're trying to turn this into a glorified game of "I know you are but what am I".

    So instead, I'll tackle the "most consistent player" besides Damian line. The only consistent thing about Aminu, outside of causing fans to scream "PASS THE BALL", is that he's wildly inconsistent.

    For example, just using this year to start, Aminu has scored *under* his seasonal average more often then he's scored above it (36 games above, 44 below). He has just as many games shooting above .60% as he does BELOW .30%. He has 20 games (yes, you read that right, 20 games) where he scores 5 points or less. Conversely, he only has 13 games where he scores above 15 points this year.

    Last year? he had as many games 8 and below as he had 9 and above.

    The year before that? More games below his average than above.

    Maybe if you didn’t reveal my private information, harass me, insult me, mock me, accuse me of being s fraud / troll and refuse to ban or even warn people who did all of the above I might be a bit friendlier. What a concept.

    Good thing we won the game. Otherwise there might be a lot of unnecessary drama in here.

    The fact that you’re judging Chief by his scoring shows you have no idea what you’re talking about. Just go away, I don’t have the time to bicker with people having bad faith discussions like you.

    Its not one comment. You continue to engage posters mostly @BonesJones. You seem to have a hardon for him. You weren't friendly from the start.

    I am not convinced you aren't a troll. I want to give you the benefit of the doubt, yet your behavior continues. I am usually very kind to new members and welcoming. New members don't act like you have. I have never seen it.

    Is our locations really private information?


    btw, your third post consisted of you telling someone to shut the fuck up about Aminu. So......

    If you were even remotely paying attention you would have seen that on the very first comment I made, Bones told me to fuck off bc I haven’t posted enough. He then continued to follow me around saying my opinions on Lillard were “idiotic shit” etc. hiding thinly veiled insults behind the facade of “I’m not saying you’re an idiot, I’m saying your comments are idiotic!”. He openly laughed at how he abused the rules like this, and you of course laughed along. It’s an open secret that you let him be a bully and you would ban me for doing the same thing.

    Finally, all this happened, and once I responded in kind, you jumped to the rescue and “saved” the forum from the toxicity that you ironically contribute to as well. That was before you decided to Dox me and put me through a fucking witch trial saying I’m a fraud/troll.

    If you think you’ve been anything remotely resembling a fair moderator you’re kidding yourself. You watch out for your friends like Bones and side with them to the highest extent possible. It’s extremely offputting and probably why you rarely get new members. Most of them likely just leave without bothering to explain any of this to you.

    If you wanna ignore all of this and blame everything on me, go ahead. The blazers are one thing in my life that have always been positive and you’re ruining that - I don’t give a shit about this angry forum or your high-school-esque politics.
