Maybe I'm just turning into a grumpy old man. But I sometimes get frustrated with the amount of clutter, and to be frank, crap, in the NBA forum. It's either not thread worthy, in the wrong forum, or just not presented well.

So, for me, I read several sites, blogs and other NBA related things everyday and then come to PSD to discuss. Let's say on this particular day, I fould 3 things I wanted to share.

Jeremy Tyler Negotiating with an Israeli Team (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=AiTwdWwlG0WUqk7v8kwQo8G8vLYF?slug=ap-jeremytyler&prov=ap&type=lgns)

An interewsting perspective on Game 4 (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/Behind-the-Box-Score-where-the-Lakers-put-the-h?urn=nba,169825#remaining-content)

An intersting Mock Draft (http://davissportsdeli.com/wordpress/2009/06/13/2009-nba-mock-draft-v-20/)

Now, it may seem like a basic question, but where should I share each of these stories?

The first one about Jeremy Tyler is probably the trickiest, it could go in the NBA forum, as it is of general basketball interest, pertaining to prospects, challenging the draft age requirement, and the like. But it is pertaining to international ball, as well as the NBA draft in a way. Because of it's wide reaching appeal, I would post it in the main NBA forum, which we all know about.

Now, on to item #2. The look at Game 4. Now, this is of general interest, to a point. But there are several places to post it rather than creating a new thread. You could post it in the series thread (http://i44.tinypic.com/1j90qv.jpg), or you could post it in the Lakers forum.
If you don't know how to get to the Lakers Forum, you go to the top of the NBA Main page, and click on basketball (http://i43.tinypic.com/s24lts.jpg), it will take you to the basketball forum index, which looks like this (http://i41.tinypic.com/2lkbtvp.jpg). Continue to scroll down to the Lakers forum.

The 3rd item, a mock draft you'd like to share, goes in the NBA Draft forum. To get there, again go to that basketball (http://i43.tinypic.com/s24lts.jpg) button at the top of the nba page to get to the Basketball forum index (also not a bad idea to favorite this page). From there you will see the NBA Draft Forum (http://i43.tinypic.com/s24lts.jpg). And that is where that would belong.

I also want to note a couple of the other forums there on the basketball forum index. The NBA Comparison Forum and the NBA Trade Ideas Forum. (http://i40.tinypic.com/hwd6hk.jpg) Both are pretty self explanatory. The first, the NBA Comparison forum, is where player comparison, team comparisons, or whatever kind of comparisons go. The Trade ideas Forum, is ever more straight forward. Trade ideas, they go there.

Furthermore, I'd just like to urge people to think twice before they post. Ask yourself, is this post going to serve a purpose to enhance the quality of basketball discussion? Now, not every post you ever make in the NBA forums has to be to enhance the quality of it. Fun can be had, and so on and so forth. But why not come here to discuss the current happenings, instead of trying to be right and win the argument? Why not try to be a student of the game instead of a master, when in all reality, if we all knew sooo much about basketball, we'd likely be more involved with the game instead of just fans.

That is all, thanks.

I've thought this about the NBA boards for as long as I can remember.

Bumped to quote this passage of sk's post, which a lot of posters seem not to be aware of. Please post all your team/player comparison type threads in the NBA Comparison forum. Thanks. :cool:

This was written a long time ago, and it's a good guide to posting in the NBA forums. The main point is that it's accurate as to thread titling and use of the various NBA forums, and that the ideas expressed in it have general agreement and support from the NBA mods.
