@  slick shoes : (23 September 2015 - 06:37 PM) kind of late in the day but NBATV is broadcasting classis Rockets games all day today.
@  SadLakerFan : (16 September 2015 - 04:37 AM) Man, as a Laker fan, I'm learning how little you care about the off season when your team sucks. Anyway, a quick moment to remember Moses. Still remember watching the 81 team as a kid - losing record, NBA Finals. I would have cried w/joy if they could have beaten the Celtics.

@  thejohnnygold : (14 September 2015 - 04:36 PM) A good article from Blinebury talking about when Hakeem and Moses used to play in the park. LINK
@  rockets best... : (14 September 2015 - 02:29 AM) I agree totally. I got to watch his Rocket days and the man was a hell of a player. BIG MO R.I.P.
@  Mario Peña : (13 September 2015 - 05:24 PM) Sad to see Moses pass. I don't remember watching him as a Rocket but I do remember his Philly and Hawks teams. He was the perfect man to mentor Dream. It's a very sad day for his family and friends and there are many.
@  majik19 : (12 September 2015 - 09:01 PM) i just saw a post wishing Yao Ming a happy 35th birthday... am I the only one whose mind is blown that he's only 35?
@  cointurtlemoose : (08 September 2015 - 01:17 AM) aaaah, thanks jorge
@  jorgeaam : (08 September 2015 - 12:21 AM) Love it how Hinkie and Morey always target the same players, but hoping he isn't another Covington
@  thejohnnygold : (08 September 2015 - 12:03 AM) Christian Wood has signed with Philly
@  jorgeaam : (07 September 2015 - 10:32 PM) If I'm not wrong, he hasn't been waived yet, they have until october 4th to do that
@  cointurtlemoose : (07 September 2015 - 05:39 PM) Anyone else surprised that Kostas hasn't gotten picked up by anyone yet? I wanna see that guy play somewhere

@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:27 AM) this dude's gun fired and all he got a misdemeanor at bush lol: http://abc13.com/new...ush-iah/815795/
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:26 AM) theres more articles all over, but the jist is houston (and texas) doesn't really arrest for it, they just recommend you leave it in your car when they catch it. So seems dwight got lucky he was in texas and not cali or the NE.
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:22 AM) honestly we should just be glad they caught it...

Yeah, all I did was cite a stat, I didn't make any ridiculous statements but you're implying I did. And I didn't chew anyones head off but you're implying I did. All I'm trying to do here is not make a big deal out of something that doesn't need to be a big deal, so I'm really hoping we can quickly conclude the matter and move on from here.  


Rather than reminding everyone that small sample sizes exaggerate results every single time I cite a stat, I've put it as a friendly reminder in my sig. Will that suffice? A yes or no answer will be fine.


Where did I say you made a ridiculous statement? I said it was merely misleading without the context, and it was. Repeatedly saying Millsap is good at 3 pointers w/ various 3 pt % stats without mentioning that he's taken like a dozen or fewer all season (at a 33% clip no less) is misleading. It'd be like if I said I want LMA because of his newfound ability to shoot 3's (when he's shot like 2 and made 1...having 50% shooting %).


If you really wanted to move on, maybe you shouldn't have had a dig at the end of your last statement:


I don't think obvious things should need to be stated, but I'd rather not argue about it, I'll try to remember to point out that sample size matters next time. Unless, would it be okay if I just write it in my signature instead of having to write it over and over again? 


Again, it'd only be prudent to mention small sample size when there actually is one. Or don't, and then also don't take offense when someone else just mentions it.


Whether or not you take the 60% out of context and go "overboard" is up to you imo. There's alot of smart guys at Red94, there's no need to remind them that sample size matters (or at least I hope so).


I get it, lots of smart people on red94. For some reason, people keep finding the need to remind me of that. But there's clearly been way too much friction coming from my side as of late, and I don't see that helping anyone. So before I wear out my own patience and positive constitution...I'm done.

I agree.........but less likely to leave than d-12


I think both are great, but I feel like D12 would be a more seamless fit into our team, due to our current composition. CP3 and Harden both need the ball in their hands. They'll figure it out, no doubt, but there's just slightly more in conflict there. Also, Asik is a much more movable asset (for better pieces) than Lin is at the moment :X

Lets move on. 


Doesn't even have to be a sig. I would just state it when you're making a conclusion off a small sample size. Not everything is based off of a small sample size. Or don't state it -- that is fine too, just don't chew off the head of the person who then points it out...


ex: if Lin only made 2 three pointers, but nailed both, I would not say, "Look at his stats guys -- Lin is our best 3 pt shooter, he's 100% from behind the arc!" without saying, "Though that's only based off 2 shots." I wouldn't need that disclaimer if he had taken say, 100 of those shots. 


Heck, again, I don't even need that disclaimer in either situation, as long as I don't get all defensive when someone else mentions it.

If you honestly think touting Millsap in a positive light by saying, "Hey, he's shooting 60% from the corner in 3's! I like him a lot!" without saying that he's only taken like a handful of them all season...is not misleading or necessary as it should be "obvious"...then there's no more to even talk about. Not bringing context into light to make your point seem more favorable than it is is of course misleading. Is it fair game for you to do that? Of course! It'd just be better if you put it into context, but hardly necessary. What I don't get is why you have to then be angry when I point out that sample size matters. Not saying it yourself is fine, but I don't know why you need to throw a fit when someone else points it out. 


I swear, people need to be a bit more secure and confident. It's more becoming.

We should send him an invite to join RED94 so he can see what we see :wub:


You know, I really do wonder sometimes how exposed to the media and the fan base players are. I know in interviews players often claim they have no idea what the standings are at the moment, etc., and I never know if they're just sort of deflecting a question or really don't know
