RIP my friend. We always had great debates. In the end we are all people whether we are Knicks or Nets fans. He always gave respect and almost two decades later we always had great banter. I will miss this guy and so will the entire REAL GM community (not just the Knicks board).

I remember lurking on this board back in 03 and finally signing up in 04. I've seen so many posters and mods. Mags was a good dude. He's at peace now.

I joined RealGM back in the stone ages. A young HS kid trying to vent about the Knicks, talk about the Knicks, etc. The site was kinda a hot mess at the time, but certain mods kept it fun and civil around here. Mags was that one.

In recent years, Mags infused a lot of positivity about the Knicks overall. Perhaps we now know why he kept that positive energy. Sad part was one of our last interactions was him breaking up the “heated”/funny discussions I had with melo regarding Dennis Smith Jr lmao.... mags should know I’ll let Melo live lmao.

Enjoy a few with the good homies up above. I’ll try to live up to your dedication to this site.

Just saw the stickied announcement thread on GB, I was really shocked and sad to see this. Rest in Peace, and prayers to his family.

Don't know the man personally, but he was a great moderator and posters in general.

I'm here to send me condolences. He will be missed greatly, not only on these Knicks board, but the entire forums.

Announcement hit me hard. Rarely interacted with him, but he was one of the moderators I recognized as a quality member. RIP magnum.

Just saw the announcment, and logged in after a long time, here to pay my tribute, because this one hit really hard, never knew he had a problem with health and frankly because how excited he was about the Knicks and just as a person, always positive and kind especially to me I would not have guessed he had one...

I had my conversations with Mags in forum also via PM, and gonna just read those few conversations again...

My mind knows, you are in the better place now,
where there is no pain.

As you liked to call me with few others your "honorary Knicks fan John Willow".

RIP Mags :beer:
Celtics fan. :crazy:
We also face the Kings twice in the near future. I think it's time Yabu pays back some of that free money he's been given his entire career and bounces Fox for a nice 2 week ankle sprain.

This one hits hard. Mags was always really kind to me and always there to help as I recently became a MOD.

RIP Mags!

There was definitely a change in his posting style. Like MP said, I thought it was just forum fatigue. I had no idea about his illness.

RIP Mags. You will be missed.

I don’t post as much as I used to, but this hit me. Life is fragile. Don’t take it for granted. You’ll be missed man.

Bye Mags

You were someone I grew to like a whole lot in the past couple of years. This board is funny like that and sometimes people who used to clash start to vibe with each other. That was so true of you and I and I really can say you became one of my primary sources of positivity on the board.

It takes a truly rare and specific individual that can show moxie while dishing out emojii's like a peanut vendor like you did. I liked that balance you had between having a strong POV while keeping it light. That's a special gift and you had that Mags.

RIP Brother,
Clyde
