Hi everyone,
hope you are all well and enjoying the basketball served up by the Lakers.

The Basketball Forum has long been the gem of the Bigfooty World. Respected by all, envy of rival boards, a vessel of information, opinion and well researched/educated posters. The basketball world has become a small place with the world wide web and notably NBA League Pass allowing all of us to act as if we are there live. With this comes increased information as we are bombarded every minute with tweets, posts and blogs detailing every movement of the NBA player. From nirvana state that comes with Steph Currys bombs, to the depths of hell in a vegas brothel, we ride every bump here.

That being said, where does this forum sit in your basketball universe? What emotions and feelings do you have about this place? Any suggestions, improvements, criticisms?

The weekly threads. Are these working for you? Are these beneficial? Prefer weekly to one consolidated thread?

PPs punting thread. Integral to the forum?

Posters. I think everyone gets along pretty well.

Feel free to slide into my DMs should you wish to raise things that you want kept private.

Your friend.

PN

Love it. Always coming back.

Keep the weekly threads, Hans does a brilliant job with it and it breaks up the season nicely with recaps and previews every so often at the start of the threads that organise the weeks previous allotment of games a bit.

should i start handing out infractions when posters post in the wrong thread?
Absolutely, provided fitting punishments can be allotted.

I think stewie griffen deserves a framed Rudy Gay photo for his inevitable first offence, while repeat violations should mean that a DVD of Doug McDermott defensive highlights should be dispatched his way, post haste.

Misplaced punting rage is an especially insidious crime, and calls for the ultimate punishment - no visits from Pricey's mum for a week.

Ha!

The joke shall be on you sir, as I'll have doubtless smashed by DVD player long before then after Norris Cole attempts another step back two.

Also AD is sure to snap in half, Bruce-Reid style, the moment he steps foot in the Windy City. Even the lightest zephyr will at least pull one of his arms off.

Need more Timberwolves supporters, I feel like my pessimistic and cynical rants are aimed at nobody in particular too often.

On a serious note.

I prefer weekly as its nice to have a hans summary each week. Although it might be useful to know in advance if he's planning to do the thread each week or not. Obviously over xmas is always tough to coordinate for peops, but now that we are back into the swings of things.

I'm happy to do something with SoS or any other volunteers on the weeks that hans cant do it.

I think the punting thread is a nice part of the forum for those inclined to have a punt. It keeps the rages/punting talk off the weekly thread, and the main board is a black cesspit of knobs.

Im guessing most folks are back at work so thats why its been a touch quiet during the early games lately.

I've got tomorrow's Weekly Thread sorted, but after that I'll be away for about a month. So whoever wants to take over Weekly Thread duties, it's all yours!

Done my good man.

We'll raffle it for the privilege of presenting a pale facsimile in your stead.

Please stay away from Matt Barnes, Jahlil Okafor, the Kardashians and Jeremy Lin's hair during your travelling.

Forum is awesome. By far my favorite here on BF. The funny thing is that AFL team forums have all this bickering and such when they support the same team, yet here where everyone supports different teams it's generally a friendly place.

But maybe I find it a happy place because the Warriors are 37-4 :cool:

Why is the board not yet certified by any professional authority?

Need to contact Commissioner Silver for approval, and be recognised to submit entries for NBA end of year awards.

First place NBA MVP vote Ish Smith, legitimises our position.
I think you answered why in the same post ;)
