    We always use that comparison and it never makes md feel any better. In fact, it actually makes me feel worse. Hey, you're meduocre but not total shit.

    (weakily) Oh hooray!

    I don't get it. What did Dame and CJ do that makes them seem insecure?

    This is his answer to Kingspeed's thread, "Is Meyers Leonard for real?"

    Personally, I think there are several ridiculous threads. Each to their own I guess. At least I got a few good laughs reading them. HAHA!

    Yes, lather, rinse, repeat. This has been going on for years. Every time Eric starts a ridiculously optimistic thread (aka: Is Meyers Leonard for real?), MM has to start a thread mocking him. I'd say it's gotten old, but that would imply a memory of a time when it actually seemed new and fresh.

    You must know something about the next draft that the rest of us don't.

    In all seriousness tho, the transition speed and pacing overall was much better in that last game. Was quite refreshing to watch the young guys get out and actually run - pushing the ball.
    It's one of the downsides to Dames game - he just wont run - walks ball up in transition. . .

    i dont think so, but it was good to see what the other guys are capable of without Dame and CJ sponging all the shots.

    Hopefully it showed that we can still ball if they arent on the court and might make Stotts more comfortable about relying on the bench a bit more when Dame/CJ are having an off night - which as we saw last year, wasnt super uncommon and also the playoffs ugh

    perspective says we were only playing the suns etc as well and its a one game sample, but interesting that meyers still sucks through either lens. 7 rebounds in 4 games over 57mins on the court. had 8 fouls tho.

    Let's slow our roll about how the guys played last night. It was against Phoenix.

    My Chinanu Okuanu thread was trolling the Meyers thread.

    This is a preemptive thread trolling future idiotic threads

    So, you have somehow managed to convince yourself that having twice as many idiotic threads makes the forum better?

    Mods should be able to make it all certain posters threads have to be approved.
