I love an argument based on emotion and things said as fact that you cannot prove. Adios.
when a person claims that an argument is "based on emotion" despite no actual expression of emotion in the post he is referring to, and loads his response with sarcasm, that's an indication that it is actually the responder that is being emotional. it's what's known in psychology as 'projection': assigning to others characteristics that one fears about one's own self
as for lavine's future with the team, i'll know that the new FO is serious about shaking things up if they deal their most notable player. let's have a real fresh start. i'm very confident that the best offer for lavine would be one worth taking
You mean like the projection that LaVine has a massive ego despite never showing evidence to suggest that is the case?
he has to show evidence in order for his argument to not be based in emotion? that makes no damn sense. if i say that michael jordan is the GOAT without providing evidence when i do so, does that make my statement emotional? of course not
and there are multiple examples of lavine having a big ego in his public statements. whether his ego qualifies as "massive" i don't know. that's subjective. it certainly doesn't make him particularly unique as a guy who makes a boatload of money and is famous
