Whats the excuse now? Opening day, I created a thread for NBA Gameday (10-30-2012) and guess what? it gets MERGED with a cluster fk of a thread. I wanna talk about NBA games per night, not what's mixed in between what happened 7-21 days ago.

Regular season, and gameday threads getting merged? What a horrible rule. Thanks for taking alot of the fun we all had on this site. We all loved the gameday threads. Thanks guys.


I didn't do it, so I'm not sure the exact reasoning, but checking out the thread around the nba thread, there's a nice full discussion about the Thunder Spurs game which would have been Gameday thread stuff...and flows just fine. It's not difficult to follow at all. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't really see it as that complicated a situation...go to the last page and there's usually ample discussion about NBA games that are current.

Here's the problem with the clusterfluck that is called the 'around the nba' thread... you have to click all around the different pages trying to find the beginning of each days games to read the commentary on that day's games. Then arguments that bleed over from previous days mix in and it's turns into the mess that it is.

Exactly what I've been saying. It's a cluster fk. Even if we update the thread title, letting it be known which page the new games start; this still doesn't change the fact that old arguments from 2-3 days ago will come to light.

I love what the mods have done around here, it's not an easy job. Not on the Knicks board it's not. And because of that? These guys have my utmost resepct. Truth be told, I couldn't imagine a New York sports message board without these guys working hard on a daily basis. They help create for a better fan experience.

With all that said, the around the NBA thread is a great thread for trade rumors, actual trades, injuries, standings, players saying this and/or that through the media etc, etc; but it's the wrong place for gameday threads. No doubt about it. No questions asked. The wrong place. I was shocked, more like disappointed, once the NBA gameday thread that I created was locked and/or merged during opening night of our 2012-2013 season.

During nights that the Knicks play? I won't create any around the NBA gameday threads. But from here on out, starting tomorrow, I'll start to create them once again (as I did last season) with hopes that it won't get locked and/or merged. There was one night, where the Knicks weren't playing, where a poster created an all-around the NBA game thread. It was beautiful. Over 20 pages before, once again (I believe) getting merged into the all around the league thread. The beautiful thing about gameday threads (per night) is this...

You get a good 20-40 strong pages of basketball talk. After that the thread then dies off onto the 2nd page. And from there, it's dead for good (until the next night of basketball takes place). I miss our gameday threads...

I'll talk to the rest of the mods and see what we can come up with, I wouldn't mind seeing game day threads but this experiment hasn't gone on long so let me see what everyone thinks.

'Around the NBA' thread for merging all the endless threads of Lin talk, Nugs talk and other OT-NBA talk..... 'gameday' thread for the game talk each day. It's quite simple really.

I don't think people will complain if we do that, but if only a handful of people are struggling to cope with the around the nba thread while it's working fine for majority of the posters...maybe it's not worth the change. It's something that has to be discussed amongst the mods and more input from other posters would be nice as well.

Lets have a poll on our first page. Keep the poll up for 1 day (24 hours). Enough said.

Poll question: Gameday threads outside of the all around the NBA thread. yes, or no.

99.9% will vote yet. End of stroy.

Or you could just relax while the mods discuss what to do next. Just have a little patience with us. It will be addressed shortly and I'm thinking everyone will be pleased.

I am relaxed bro, just discussing questions and concerns (what this thread was created for). But what's the problem with creating a thread with an actual poll in order to see where our fan base stands? You stated yourself, that it's something that has to be discussed amongst the mods and more input from other posters would be nice as well. There is no better way for input from our posters, than a poll. We want input from our fan base? Fine, then let's create the thread (poll). You've even stated below, that gameday threads would be allowed come the regular season, no?

I wanna enjoy our gameday threads once again, without being involved in a thread that's over 100 pages long with old arguments from 2-3 days ago coming to light while we're trying to talk NBA basketball games.

NYK Mentality, we're talking about it right now.

Just have a little patience, we'll get there to something I'm sure everyone can live with.

Keeping it simple, if people felt that strongly they would have done what you guys did and posted here (hence my more input comment). We've gotten a few opinions about what to do next, but we're discussing a couple of things.

I told you we'd discuss it today and we've literally been discussing it, beating the dead horse isn't gonna speed up the process...calm down and give us a while to get a consensus.

Honestly I didn't see a problem with one thread... posts are timestamped with the date so finding out what days games are being discussed is rather simple.

It's took hard to do that apparently too much reading and logic involved.

I have a question. Why do some of the mods on this forum hate the team and root against it?

I would try to trade Stat for Gasol,i think that D'Antoni would want Stoudemire in Lakers uniform
-Stat&Nash were the most important players in Suns,with D'Antoni as a coach.He is also great in P&R with Nash.
-He is faster than Gasol,we all know that Lakers are probably gonna play fast in new system Run and gun.
-I've been reading some speculations that D'Antoni is not the biggest fan of Gasol,he is to slow for him.
Knicks would get:
-We all know that Stat and Anthony are not playing good together,not the right chemistry
-Gasol is more of a all-around player than STAT,he can fit in many sistems
-He is a better rebounder,better defender aswell.

I think that this is a win-win situation for both teams,it's worth a try at least especially if Gasol is not gonna fit in D'Antoni system and if Melo and Amare will struggle again together on the court.

Something needs to be done about posters who keep bringing up those who don't post here anymore and discuss them. I usually read the postgame thread when I wake up but it's really annoying having to browse through pages of posts by old women bitching about posts from other boards. How pathetic must you be to go to sites other than RealGM to track down what former posters are saying and then bring that **** here?

It's really annoying when Rasho posts. Since individual opinions of what is annoying is cause for reporting, should I report him every time he posts?
