If it's true.. good luck!


If not... you suck.
Can you find the thread where the other guy was exposed?

if you can rebound, defend, throw putbacks, hurt people in the paint, you're welcome to try out for the raptors anytime

I did a search on Google, there was a thread called "TheTHIEF" that had been deleted and another one similar to that which said I didn't have access to it. Hmm.

I remember those threads. He wrote long stories about trying out for the NBA. I was bummed when I found out it wasn't true. I think it was shortly before I started an account.

I think I found the thread. What appeared in google was as follows:

To be honest, this is pretty tame compared to some of the crap that happened on one forum I used to be on, but it's still pretty lame to live a lie like

I am curious how he was exposed.
It was a fun seven years but I am retired. I enjoyed reading many of yours posts. Peace and love basketball.

It was a fall from grace that Tiger Woods would be envy of. We made threads wishing him good luck every once in awhile and he was one of the most beloved posters at RealGM. Then we found out he was a fake and it all went downhill from there.

Me too. Was it cached or anything? Unfortunately the ones I found weren't.

This poor guy's NBA dream thread has turned into something else entirely :lol:

The Thief = OJ Simpson of realgm

I find it amazing he pulled that lie for a half decade.

I feel sorry for the OP. His thread turned into a discussion about a different poster...

The mods have a duty to take that thread off the secret mod board and bring it here.

He said his name was Ronald Murray. The only Ronald Murray in professional basketball is Flip, and Flip isn't a 31 year old post defender with absolutely no previous professional basketball experience. Giving a name of a current player with a common name was logical, in that it would be damn hard to find about anyone called Ronald Murray given the way Flip dominates the searches. But given that it was blatantly fake from day 1 anyway, the name wasn't really the turning point.


Has he ever posted since he was exposed or did he disappear?

RealGM doesn't necessarily exercise the best judgment when selecting moderators.
