View Full Version : The All Knowing Thread: What Have u Learnt About Basketball In Your Time As A PSDer?

Ok so I do believe that I can safely speak for all of us here and say that we all have learned a thing or two since being on PSD. In an attempt to widen our basketball knowledge I say lets just put a little of what we have learned in a thread. I'll start first with just a couple.

I've learned a TON about 60s, 70s,80s, basketball on this board. I have really gotten greater insight of the players, teams, fans, pace and style over those years more so than just know stats.

I learned how great an international player Arvydas Sabonis I have a boatload more respect for him now.

What about you guys?

For me, the importance of analytics (props to Chronz), tolerance for opposing fan bases (props to SI, db, IF, DS & Josh), understanding of the CBA & the mechanics of player movement (props to Future & the mock offseason), and, by way of all discussions here, increased disdain for the sports media in general & increased respect for the few among its tanks who stand out as honorable exceptions to the unfortunately pathetic norm (props to Chris Tomasson).

I learned a lot about CAP. Definitely became more knowledgeable about it thanks to my Knick forum.

Sly Guy
08-18-2010, 08:42 AM
the CBA, and tolerance of other fan bases, mostly. And that regardless of tolerance of other fan bases, homers are homers, and they always make themselves look stupid to those who still reserve judgement on a team/player until they've watched them.

maturity as a poster. Not getting into pointless arguements. making sure posts are able to be backed with evidence. How annoying and intolerable the media is, and using advanced statistics and metrics when evaluating players in the sense that the eye doesn't catch everything. Plus, when you come here, you can actually have intelligent debates at times, where in the real world, most of us would be bored with basketball discussions, due to lack of knowledge amongst the average fans.

Ive learned alot more about the CAP and player movement. Also, i dont always get to see some of the young players on other teams on a good basis, so i love hearing about progression and potential (realistic potential) from good posters.

P.S i Also learned that Media/espn sucks.

I learned a few things.

1) Bandwagon Fans (Only post when there team is good, but never are here when there team is bad?)
2) Commentators only appreciate greatness by what they see and don't care to look at the numbers behind it.
Example: many commentators were saying Pierce was the best player in the playoffs in 2008.
3) Posters seem to believe that because so and so said this player is better that is holds weight on a forum where you need to put ideas together and use not only stats, but performances to back up ideas.

Gotta admit Ive never asked myself that Q

Seems like tough task to sum up what Ive learned here but it has relatively little to do with the sport itself. Like the way I value players and how I rate them has been pretty consistent for years now (PSD era anyways). Thats not to say people havent swayed my opinion on certain players, but its definitely a rarity. Like most people Ive learned more about the teams fanbases than the actual players, to me thats even more interesting. Any basketball related content that expanded my thinking of the game is usually analytically related or from old school books.

Still if I had to sum up everything Ive learned it would take more time than Im willing to put in right now. Ive been here a long time by my standards

You definitely need to listen to that little conscious of yours, you couldve just said that geniuses are too few to come by and sounded alot less spiteful.

I have no filter sometimes as well but even I wouldnt have said it that way, and yes to a certain extent I agree with you. There are tons of *****, but theres also a reason you stay here. There are plenty of intellectuals and guys who think just as lowly of you as you do of them so theres always someone to respect.

Someone read far too much into the post. I said "far too many" and someone took that as "everyone." Far too many could mean one or one percent, or three of each thousand or whatever I have in my mind as being "far too many." It certainly doesn't mean everyone or even a majority, or even necessarily a plurality. This is what occurs when people take a post out of context without asking for clarification. Several other members have shared the same opinion, yet posted it in different terms, and no one has accused those members of "hating everyone." :)

I've learned a ton. A lot about the game of basketball itself. I've learned, mainly through self-learning, a ton about the salary cap and more generally the business aspects behind the NBA. It is a business, and people seem to forget that (usually when making trade proposals).

I've learned about objectivity. While I'm always fairly certain that I am right, I don't ever just all of a sudden come to that conclusion. There's a reason why every argument or issue has more than one side to it. It would be wonderful if people would realize this, step back, and ***** the situation for what it is with an open and unbias mind. I try to look at both sides, all the stats and info, before I make my mind up.

I've learned that when people have their minds made up, their minds are made up.

I've learned a ton about advanced stats, what makes someone "efficient" (sorry Kevin Martin), what metrics are the most significant and stuff like that.

I'm a much wiser person all-around because of the psychosocial community that does exist here, and how people interact, debate, argue, think, etc. It's very informative if you can step back and look, again, without a subjective lens.

PSD has helped fine tune (well the basic idea of the theory) the idea of the beginnings and end's mattering, and the middle is forgotten in basketball

i have learned A LOT on PSD mainly in the NBA and Laker Forums which has actually helped me in the real world not just the cyber world

ive learned to properly construct a debate and back up my argument with evidence and statistics. before i would just be like the 100s of people posting and just post subjective remarks but now when i post i think before posting and actually try and be factual rather than the usual homer. this has helped me more and more each day as i engage in arguments with casual fans about sports from nfl to mlb to nba and demolish them. i feel better and more confident everytime i talk to my uncles who think they know everything about nba and so on.

another thing ive learned is how bad the media is in swaying the public perception of a player/team/person etc. they have a lot of power and at times can affect the way fans look at the game.

ive also learned about a lot of advanced statistics and things like tsa% PER win shares ows dws etc. things i would never even care to look up i have come to know very well in my time here on PSD (5 years - 3 years observing 2 posting). i dont think anyone outside of PSD and other sports websites knows about these statistics and i never would have known about them had it not been for PSD.

another thing ive learned is how much people let their emotions talk rather than creating a logical argument to defend their point.

theres much more but i just want to thank PSD for helping me in college classes when i am arguing or debating with professors/students or in persuasive essays. sadly, i never knew how to properly construct a valid argument prior to my time on PSD so THANK YOU.

i will post a couple more of my learnings on here tomorrow =]

I think its an ego thing however i mean once you've spent time on this website you can help but learn about the game. Not from other posters but more so from having to do more research into topics you weren't always solid about. Thats the way I have learned most of the new stuff i did.

2. The Raptors are way better than anyone outside of Toronto thinks.
3. Derrick Rose is the future of basketball and the world in general.
4. Only talk about Lebron, and hate on him as much as possible.
5. Don't give any small market teams any credibility.
6. Wade is better than Lebron.
7. Most people that post on this board are ****ing idiots.

I learned all anybody cares about is LeBron, the Lakers, Kobe, and comparing LeBron, the Lakers, and Kobe.

It sucks, being a Warriors fan we never talk about anything relevant to them or rarely about any other small market teams, and the GSW forum on here isn't THAT active. It'd be nice if people stepped away from everything LeBron, Kobe, Lakers, Heat, etc.

You just answered your own rant........

Why don't you start a thread on something "relevant" on the Warriors.

I've learned that there are lots of guys just like me, that before, during and after a game, want to talk about the game. My wife is really not a NBA fan, my loyal son who loves all of my teams (but has a 8 pm bed time) is asleep, so I find myself wanting to discuss, argue or cheer about my game. PSD has given my just that (without waking up my wife or kids). So to all you late night posters, CHEERS!!!
