Did I strike a nerve? 8-) I’ve said this a million times. I don’t care about my grammar I go on this site for fun and information.

You must hate life or not have one the one comment you quote was mine with to and too.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


I from now on will specifically only use just to if it annoys you that much.

Ps :future advice worry about yourself snd not what others do if it doesn’t actually affect you.

P.s: You’re user name should be Hawthorne_wingo not Hawthornewingo

So you need to fix that
:rofl2: :rofl2: :violin:


This little guy wants to correct me yet his own username is wrong :crazy: :lol: :jawdrop:


Not trying to be funny. Just curious:

Why do people get so angry/upset when someone corrects them?? I make mistakes all the time. So, when someone tells me I left my keys in the door, or messed up my phone number on an application, or repeatedly misspell a word (on a resume, a forum, or anywhere), I actually appreciate the correction. I'd rather somebody correct me in a place like this so I don't make the same mistake somewhere else where it could cost me a job or money or something important.

I see this all the time. Someone gets corrected on a mistake they made, then they become defensive and leap out in attack mode to "get back" at someone for daring to make them aware of a mistake they made. Are we all too good/perfect to be corrected? Is it ego? Or what??

Again, NOT being funny. Seriously only being curious and only asking a genuine question as to why correcting someone always brings the same "attack" response. :dontknow:

Genuine answer. When people clearly understand what you are trying to say, as in “to vs. too” which is something that is easy to typo or have autocorrected and would miss a filter, personally I think it comes across condescending to correct that mistake especially when it serves no purpose to help anybody better understand the idea the person was trying to express. I wouldn’t care to be corrected if added something helpful to the conversation other than trying to demean the other person. Also this isn’t formal writing or English class or a job application, it’s a casual basketball message board. It’s just not that important. Sometimes I intentionally don’t capitalize letters or use any punctuation just to convey a relaxed style.

Okay, totally understandable if it's a typo. However, FYI: I've thrown away more resumes than I can remember from job applicants who have practiced "relaxed" English so much, they no longer know the difference between "YOUR" and "YOU'RE" or "TO and "TOO." They write and see it written incorrectly so many times, they start to believe it's correct.

Agreed, there's no need for anyone to be condescending at any time. However, I'm still surprised to see the standard "I'm too good to be corrected" response during those times when someone is genuinely just trying to be helpful.

Then wouldn’t it be contradicting the fact of being helpful if you’re not expressing or saying your trying to be helpful. Because it always feels condescending.

Should I help a random person on the street and say dress better or maybe eat healthier?

It’s the same thing. Worry about your self. Especially if your username is not in correct format.

This is a place of fun not a job application or work situation.

LOL well, telling someone to dress "better" or eat "healthier" is expressing a personal opinion and not correcting a mistake. I've actually gone up to a total stranger on the street to tell them they have toilet paper stuck to their shoe. Once, I overheard some tourists taking the wrong train to a destination and I stepped in and corrected them. Never once did anyone tell me to mind my business and worry about myself.

Anyway, thanks for the response. I get it now. You never want anyone to correct YOU for any reason. That's your prerogative.

Actually if I’m at work I love constructive criticism. If im on a forum I don’t. I don’t need someone critiquing the way I write. Wrong or right.

Contrary to what you said those very two thing could affect someone’s day. But why are you listening to other people’s conversations?

Also why are you looking at strangers lower half’s.


Like I said; when something l’m doing is wrong and can affect the next person sure go ahead “ when I’m at work or doing something morally incorrect”

But a messaging board you can go find yourself a life and not worry about mine. Especially if the grammar police officer has his username wrong or is wrong half the time themselves. It provocative and condescending.


To many people out there want to act like a boss or know it all’s. Those type of people have 0 friends and are very disliked.


So Mr know it all. Why should I be grammar policed on here? What service or benefit does it do me? I have two college degrees going on my third right now. I also have a career. So how is this going help me especially if you only comment on my grammar and not the actual topic.


Since you love rules, then you can do yourself a favor and stay on topic with what this thread is supposed to be about.

^^ bet you won’t like that but listen I’m only trying to help you corrects your flaws :lol: :lol: :lol:

I wouldn't say Bassey is anything like Mitch because Mitch has some freakish qualities few have but Bassey is a guy who contributes on both ends of the court and has potential to be a stretch big. I had my eye on him before the draft with a 2nd rounder.

Julius looks so fit man. Looks like he's in even better shape than he was last year and his jumper looked really smooth off the dribble in those clips. The playoff performance was cause for concern, but man I am excited to see what he does with a real PG like Kemba and a full offseason of more development. When he was able to play with Jrue Holiday in Nola he had his most efficient scoring year of his career. Hopefully Kemba can make that happen again and now with his new found all around game he can really be a 2 way force with less playmaking responsibility.
