    Not a sore spot. I wanted to clarify that you were, in fact, attempting to make a personal attack outside the realm of discussion of basketball. It seems that you are confirming that fact.

    No apologies necessary. Good bye.

    The article I was referencing to Denny about our FA options if LMA does leave, and who we could spend the cap space on:

    Look at the league’s other high quality PFs:

    Blake Griffin: Signed through 2018
    Anthony Davis: Will be in NOLA through at least 2017
    Kevin Love: Expected to commit to new team once traded
    Dirk Nowitzki: Dedicated to re-signing in Dallas (also, 112 years old)
    David Lee: Signed through 2016
    Zach Randolph: Will be signed to a multiyear deal within the month
    Serge Ibaka: Signed through 2017
    Chris Bosh: Will be signed to a multiyear deal within the month
    Paul Millsap: The most viable option aside from Aldridge
    Derrick Favors: Signed through 2018

    He made $23m at age 35. LMA's absolute max, according to Storyteller, is a 5/$105m contract. Who cares about a "max" when the max is less then what Dirk made last year. It doesn't lessen the impact on the cap.

    What the fuck do you have against the blind? Who are you to think you can say I don't care about winning? LaMarcus isn't my favorite player but if you want to throw false judgements about, I'm thinking it's just your meds. Having a tough day MM?

    Between the two of us, I may not be the one having a tough day. Bringing up meds is kinda bullshit.

    That should be a lesson to some of you on here, I am the only mod you are allowed to insult.

    That's because I'm bigger than most of you and can kick your asses.

    I agree. Apparently this is the drama thread.

    Every Aldridge thread is a drama thread.

    Dude, you insulted him first. I agree that he shouldn't have brought up your meds but you called him blind. That was hardly a complement.

    One is an insult that is related to basketball. The other is an insult that's about personal information that he knew about MM that should not be brought up. Some of the people on here will go for the jugular when they get offended. They'll figure out what buttons they can push to actually hurt you and they will try to push those buttons as much as they can. That needs to stop. If you want to call someone an idiot because you disagree with their opinion about Aldridge, fine, but don't bring up some personal shit that you happened to read somewhere on the forum. That's outside the realm of basketball and it's completely over the line.
