    More likely he will. He's still young and improving. Also, the stats presented here are not small sample size.

    In actuality I've done it for years. I saw some other posters doing it and it struck me as signing your name at the end of a statement like a letter. My post name/handle is derived from a snowboarding product I was working on when I first joined this group 20+ years ago.

    Sorry but that "quote" is ridiculous fanboy anecdotal nonsense easily disproved by Ant standing next to Shaedon. Who to believe? These two jokers yucking it up that Ant is now 6'5 or the fact that 6'4.25 Shaedon towers over him?

    Who to believe, someone "quoting" anfernee, or you pulling up out of context pictures of people standing nearby each other. OK.

    Doesn't seem too far outside the realm of possibility that Ant is closer to Hart/Sharpe's height than Dame's.

    You can't judge height by shoulders.....see 6'8 Terry Stotts neck....it's about 9 inches long! With a normal neck Terry would be about 5'11 THERE problem solved....Ant has a longer neck than Shaedon!

    Actually this is incorrect, we can use photos to accurately judge the height of two different objects.

    I always believed the statue of liberty was over a couple hundred feet tall, but that's wrong. Its actually much shorter than an average person. You can see in this picture as proof;

    You know, it's funny. Every once in a while I click the "show ignored content" button and I see the posts/posters that I'm blissfully unaware of because I blocked their asses a long time ago. I have collected a nice following of people who have hate boners for me.

    The funny thing is that I don't carry around weird infatuations with anyone on here. I read opinions and I comment on that opinion. I have never understood this weird obsession with hating specific posters. If you don't like someone, don't read them. Or better yet, ignore them. I have a few people on here on ignore because they always seemed to need to make it personal. "You're a hater. You're negative. Blah blah blah blah blah." I actually forgot about most of you on my list until I make the mistake of clicking "show ignored content."

    I just picture them as one of those tedious people who call into the 5th quarter and ramble for several minutes about some asinine opinion that they have about the team.

    Putting people on ignore sounds like a lot of work, I'm way too lazy for that.

    Plenty of stupid opinions around here; if they are really dumb I usually don't respond. Plenty of great opinions though as well.

    Happy to debate if someone has a good counterpoint. I think of my debates as more of just throwing out the comment I believe makes the most sense. I don't try to change the opinion of who I'm responding too, plenty of people have stupid opinions or are stuck up. I think of it more as an independent 3rd party is looking at both our arguments, and I try to post in a way that portrays how I'm right and how that other person's logic is flawed.

    Of course everything here is just our worthless opinions so anybody that takes it to seriously probably has bigger problems in their life.

    Weird to see Melo as the leader. he must have been a trailer taking threes. I would guess Lillard gets a lot that way also? Do these stats somehow account for a guy getting the assist on a transition basket?

    I love debating the blazers. What I got tired of debating was me and my outlook on the team. Or maybe it's my attitude. I don't know. I don't really care. I think I ended up blocking 4-5 people that always seemed to comment on me instead of the topic. Life is much better when you don't see those people. I usually make the mistake of clicking "show ignored content" because I see other people responding to them and I'm curious what they're responding to.

    LOL!..."hate boners"

    when I think about it, that's a problem I had with my first ex-wife. If I would have paid more attention to the hate instead of the boner....

    The fact is that if we have a chance at any time to attain a game changing, already all star, two way wing that and the package has to include Ant but allows us to keep our perimeter depth, then we would have to do it. If had a chance to make a major upgrade at C by trading Ant and Nurk for someone who both stretches the floor more on offense, can better cover the perimeter and still be a post anchor on defense, then you do it.

    Otherwise, I think you let this duo see if they can match Dame/CJ lead teams in success this season and if they can at least do that, you give them next season too. I we fall short of making the playoffs and being competitive in the first round and it's obvious that the defensive efficacy of our back court is a liability that lead to our step backwards then I think we would quietly auction off Ant in the off season.

    I'm all for giving this back court a chance but if we're hitching our wagon to Dame (newsflash we just hitched it to the tune of over 250M over the next five seasons) then we do not give this back court time for growing pains. We see what they got this year and if it's trending up from Dame/CJ then we continue with it and if it's trending down and we're committed to Dame we make swift decisive changes that better put us in position to win in Dame's window.
