I suddenly have started to have a huge problem with this. Couldn't even write this without four redirects. Better hit submit fast or it'll get me again. Too slow, that's five.
My GOATs 1.LBJ/2.Jordan/3.KAJ/4.Duncan/5.Magic
Russell and Wilt grandfathered in at 6 and 7.

Yes I watched Jordan live, started paying attention to basketball in the bad boys era.

I respect Jordan way more now than I did when he played.

Thank you for this. I do not usually like adblock because I believe sites should have income, but the two header ads, instead of one, have made my Android tablet use very frustrating. Pages take forever to load, I click on a link and a link, a third way up the page, is loaded (slowly). I have fibre optic service on which I pay extra for the highest speed available, and yet load time is unacceptable.

I have no problems viewing this site on my desk top, but trying on my galaxy 9 I get about 4 redirects per page I try to view, any suggestions for this? I use chrome for both, and don't want to use a different browser. Is there something I can do with my phones settings to fix this? Also this site is the only place I have this problem.

Wanted to chime in that realgm has became almost impossible to navigate with Chrome on PC. Often times it takes about 30-40 seconds for pages to load and then clicking on threads very often bounces to external ads.

On mobile, chrome on iOS keeps crashing all the time.

What going on?

Yeah Chrome on IOS is horrible with this site. Every other site works fine but this one crashes constantly.

I’ve been using Tapatalk mostly now. Just tried the website and yes it seems there are fewer redirects. BUT, there is this obnoxious “top articles” pop up in the bottom right corner of the screen which is enough to drive me back to Tapatalk

We believe we have found the cause of the issue and eliminated it. We apologize for the continued inconvenience.

Keeps crashing for me and I've had some people on my boards say the same thing today. IOS Chrome, this site still crashes all the time. I don't know if it's ad related but time after time it will randomly refresh, sometimes crashes completely. Frustrating when reading a thread and even more frustrating when in the middle of typing a post. Not good.

I believe we've solved the issue for good. We've also made a few optimizations that should dramatically improve the site speed in the process.

Can you provide a screenshot and which browser/device you're using?
