All NBA forum posters - PLEASE READ!:


Baiting will not be tolerated any longer during the playoffs. We went into them being lenient, but obviously that's not working anymore.

If you've been insulting, baiting, trolling, etc., i suggest you go back right now and edit your posts.

Sorry guys, but the hammer has to come down now. Too many posters are getting out of line, and it's really messing up the quality and flow of the forum.

Please, just follow the damn rules, you know? It's pretty simple. Don't make it personal. Don't take it personal. Take a deep breath before firing off that post or thread you'll regret making later.

And if all you want to do is talk **** and bash fans of other teams and bait and generally violate the letter and spirit of the site rules and zero tolerance policy, then just clench your hands together and keep your fingers off that keyboard.

Look, we get it. I'm a nuggs fan. I pretty much hate the jazz. And spurs. And lakers. And mavs. But some of the best posters here - some of my personal favorites - are fans of those teams. Just gotta separate the wheat from the chaff, that's all.

Just hash out your rivalries with civility and respect. It ain't always all that easy, but really, it ain't that hard, either.

Please. Thanks. :cheers:

This is from the PSD/NBA Forum Rules - Zero Tolerance (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?p=13056088#post13056088) thread. Please read and take note guys :cheers:

I've had Orlando winning their series against the Bobcats since the beginning, but I think the 'Cats will take game three. They can get hot, have a good coach, and a good crowd. I've just said in the Laker forum that I think it's not unusual at all for any team to lose a game three on the road - only 2/6 game threes have been won by road teams so far this year (Phoenix and Boston).

Also, the Lakers just need to play smart tonight. The Thunder are a great team but if we just use our heads (IE: feed the bigs, lock down on shooters) I think we'll be able to go two games up. Should be a good game though.

Happy Gortat came through clutch, even when he's terrible from the line. Experience really kicked in, in the last quarter. Despite a bad overall game, with tons of turnovers, and no help from Vince Carter, or Dwight Howard, we still end up with the W. Great game from Jameer, Shard, & Barnes. Good win. We needed that, at least, I think so. It felt like a test.

His defense in the second half, and in the early 4th especially was absolutely paramount to us winning that game.

He can go 0pts-7rebs-0asts and still leave such a strong impression on a game. Didn't get a ton offensively** but he was huge for us in most every other regard.

That's why he's the best bigman.

OK. So when Laker fans complain about the FT differential, you'll admit that it's fair right. ;)

LA shoots jumpers. OKC attacks the paint more than any team in the league. Hence your FT differential. Phil new it would happen before the series, so he preemptively complained. Aggression reaps rewards.
