the bored comment which was made in the "i know everything there is to about analyzing so i get bored" or whatever the exact quote was was a clear joke.

That ignores the accusation of trolling that you immediately threw out which was of zero value, and also that is exactly why I asked you how you were so sure of the defensive values of these players, since you're constantly saying that there isn't any acceptable method to measure it. So either you're basing it off something else which I would be interested to know or you're just completely making things up to get a reaction. Either way, it doesn't change from the fact that these posts are a net negative to any actual discussion taking place, and that this is completely standard for you.

Doesn't make it not true (that you're bored).

Big Al is terrible on d, i can tell that cause I've watched a bunch of his games and he fails the eyetest hard. Bobbo also says he fails his secret stat test hard as well.

As for sampson, obv it's hard to judge people's defense from 30 years ago so i had to google.com and take the word of others. I know he had a really good defensive rep in college as well.

"4-Sampson was a better shot blocker (again, comparing a young healthy Sampson to an old hurt Sabonis), but probably a weaker interior defender. Sampson was extremely long and a great help defender from the other side, but physically, he wasn't big or strong enough to play the stonger centers straight up. Sabonis was."

http://forums.realgm.com/boards/view...877567&start=0

not gonna paste a bunch of other links but the one above can't be accused of being a massive homer since it points out his faults. hes prob a better version of josh smith on D, sampson would obv be playing PF for me not C.

Because of his declining mobility I'm not sure Sampson could guard a can of stewed tomatoes much less an NBA player towards the end there.

So are you saying that you'd rather just troll and drag the level of discussion down on the forum than post a real response because you don't want to take the chance that someone might argue against what you say? I just want to make sure I'm understanding you correctly, so if I'm wrong please correct me.

it's taking part in a long pointless argument where i have .01% chance of changing ur or anyone elses mind. everyone defends their players to the death in these drafts (i'm obv guilty of this as well) and after a while u get wiser and realize no one is gonna change their mind regardless of what u say.

this is especially true on the subject on defense where getting "proof" is pretty much impossible.

In these cases just ignoring the conversation and moving on is much better than making troll posts.

So trolling people and derailing discussion is entertaining to you? And that is the reason you continue to post here?
