    I don't think that. I'm just sick as shit of hearing people bitch about the leather trim on their luxury sports car. He has fucking flaws. Why do you insist on whining about it?

    Please show me where I banned anyone. My mental stability is fine. You, on the other hand, have so far accused me of trolling and ghost-posting tonight, and just said that I banned people who disagreed with me.

    As it turns out, I was right and LMA said what I said he said. But don't let that get in the way. Don't let the research I did for the board get in the way. I'm sure it was all because I wanted to pack the bags of the best PF in the NBA and send him out of town.

    I think you're trolling and trying to get people riled up about LMA. I'm not sure many others here would disagree with that tonight.

    I didn't say you, BC. Why can't I have the opinion that he isn't the MVP of the league? That's where this started. The other 297 posts in this thread have dealt largely with people attacking my opinion, and me pulling out stat after stat, answer after answer, to show where I'm coming from. It's easy to snipe (as has been shown in the last hour) but I ask you how much you've seen me "whine" about LMA this year. I take exception to johnny-come-lately posters who tell me that LMA's the MVP and if I'm not on the bandwagon I'm not a Blazer fan. And then spend a night defending my opinion against all manner of people personally offended that i'm not on LMA's jock--which is funny, since I've said I am for most of the last year.

    Where did anybody in this thread say LMA was the league MVP? I see a post or two saying he's a MVP candidate, which by most rational people, he is. You seem to be the only "Blazer Fan" hating on LMA's game at this point. Why?

    Your opinion is noted. I disagree. No one who's asked a question of me has been ignored. Your definition of trolling and mine are different, I guess.

    Frankly I'd say you're the one doing your normal trolling of the mods tonight, starting an argument based on misconstrued or made up slights, and accusing an eminently reasonable poster of adopting some of the ridiculous BS you've had a hand in over the years.

    This is amusing. You are discrediting your grievance with LA the more context you provide, and it's confounding that you don't appear to realize it.

    Because I don't think he's the league MVP, and I don't think he's the main reason the team went from 33-49 to 31-9. It seems as if pointing out my reasoning behind that (using stats and facts) is "hating on his game", and I can't help what your opinion is on that.

    Apparently cherry-picking every negative stat about LMA makes one "reasonable." How about pulling on/off stats from 82games.com? Or ever a simple stat like +/- for the season thus far. Or WS/48, even?

    It's hilarious, actually. Just as he did in his "Lillard MVP" thread, which I didn't really have a problem with until he started shitting on LMA's head. :cheers:

    Huh? You said people in the thread called him the league MVP. Nobody did that, Brian. Read the thread again, have some water, and slow down on the Johnny Walker Red.

    On the contrary, who is saying LA is not the MVP of the Blazers? 1, 2, 3 not it.

    Let's try to keep it to one account please. It get's confusing. Rep Power 6... 710 posts in 5 years? lol Adorable. I think I hit 700 in a game thread once.

    You doubt that LA is even the MVP of the Blazers. That was YOUR argument. Thanks for the laughs.

    The rep power is based on the creation of the account, not posts.

    Post count doesn't mean anything, anyway.

    you're welcome.

    I notice that you haven't refuted it.

    He scores the most points and gets the most rebounds, but you could make a case that, because he hasn't improved in his shooting percentage or shot selection that he isn't the what the fuck am I saying? He was the team MVP last and he is this year too. Just because he hasn't improved his shooting doesn't change that.

    Brian, he is the team MVP regardless of perceived improvement, because he's been the team MVP for like five years. He's been the best PF in the game for two or three, certainly in the conversation. That some think he's in the conversation for league MVP isn't totally nuts.
