The Dumbass Lounge>****OFFICIAL NBA Playoffs Thread****
KC_Connection 10:11 AM 08-28-2020
Have been banned from the other thread by an apparently sensitive snowflake (ironically after dozens of pages of political discussion from others) so I'll stick my thoughts on the NBA Playoffs here from now on. We needed a new thread anyway.

Won’t happen. Someone’s going to fart and get it cancelled.

That's all I'll say, so no need to further the conversation... this thread is a good idea. In this ****ed up world, it's like we need a "social issues" version of these threads and one that's about the actual sport/topic. :-)
Could you lock my thread?

I'd personally call anybody reporting that post a "snowflake" considering what had gone on in that thread for days prior to it, but we can agree to disagree.

And yes, I think a purely basketball thread is much needed after the events of the past few days.

So we're officially back tomorrow. Please, OKC, knock the Rockets out so we don't have to watch their painfully boring brand of basketball.

If the events of the past few days didn't get it cancelled, nothing will. Too many millions on the line for everyone. A championship will be awarded and we can only hope LeBron will be on the winning side.

Thank you. It was from 2011 it needed to be dead. :-)

Sorry if that offended anybody, but that's quite literally the environment we find ourselves in right now. I'm happy to say it goes on for both sides if you want. It's an extremely polarized time.

But anyway I wanted to get away from this discussion and move on.
I agree with your last 3 sentences 100%. Hatchet buried.

Put on your big boy pants and ban the 20+ people. That was a pretty decent NBA thread (sans the ongoing LeBron vs. Jordan garbage) that was completely ruined by people who care little to nothing about the NBA.

Pfft, it's Friday, I'm not wearing pants.




And it's not ultimately up to me to change the entire way the board has been moderated for 20 years plus a few days.

KC Connection should be banned for subverting his ban.

No worries, man. This thread should be fine if we can keep the DC critters out.
