    i used to read your posts and truly try to be empathetic to figure out how you could possibly espouse the terrible arguments you constantly do. my best theory was that english was your 2nd language and the root of what you were trying to say was getting lost somewhere in the translation.

    it must be hard to know that i could spend more than 18 seconds writing a stream-of-consciousness post about basketball on a clothing forum and improve my writing, but you'll always be mentally incapable of grasping new information that blows your dated and incorrect opinions out of the water.

    Interesting theory. In English, the first word in a sentence is capitalized, as well as many grammatical nuances. I should really be the last person saying this, but eh.

    Does Giannis even have to jump to dunk?

    I think the NBA asked him too late, he was 30 (iirc) when he did the NBA dunk contest and he was 25 (or younger in that clip?) but I think also the pressure and hype might have gotten to him?

    His double handed free throw dunk wasn't bad at all, it just felt and looked weak because he missed a few ft dunks before that and that just really kills the momentum when watching a dunk contest live.

    No, grammatical nuances aren't capitalized. Independent clauses, however, should have predicates.

    yeah i was really disappointed he wasn't selected when he was a rookie and not playing any minutes. it makes sense i guess, but i mean we did end up w/ jeremy evans (who??)

    ouch this is worse than i remember
    the only ever stretch where i played NCAA college basketball on xbox (was that what it was called??), i used cincinnatti and just had james white run around the paint until he could dunk it over everyone. i dominated all my friends until one person realized the "take charge" button existed, i lost horribly thereafter, and never bothered playing again. so i poured one out after he lost that dunk contest.

    btw i'll ride for gerald green's birthday cake dunk forever.

    That cupcake dunk is so underrated because not many knew what he did.

    Things idnfl is an expert at:

    - How effective relegation would be in the NBA
    - Max contracts
    - When you should be resting players (read: never)
    - The English language

    He's also good at treating NBA players like they're illegal immigrants who should be paid under the table as cheap labor.

    You forgot my expertise in the stretch 4, fantasy, rubber limbs, prediction, and Kobe Bryant.
