  • And he also deleted my initial rebuke towards KeonClark which took place before he went after Abbas. I can't find my comments anywhere. There's nothing "tongue-in-cheek" about the allusions he made, or purging the evidence of it.

    Edit: Actually, he didn't get to them. I'll post the interaction below in its entirety.

    It's what they've always done. The story that will get all the ink today is Ross's 3 being overturned, but the Raptors put themselves in that position by abandoning what worked for them. It's a matter of poor coaching and inflated ego. It really is. Why else would the offense shift so drastically to DD isolations and Lowry trying to draw fouls? The worst part about it is that we all knew after JV's huge first half exactly what was going to happen in the 2nd.

    It was a west coast road game in the middle of a grueling travel schedule. Not surprised it came down to the end. Yes raptors should have kept going at jv, but I'm tired of reading pepole say "we put ourselves in that position" like, no, you shouldn't have to avoid a last minute call being fair because of suspect reffing. It's like a black guy who was unjustly shot by police for a small crime "put himself in that position"

    Obviously there's more to it than involving JV. They played shameful defense for the better part of 3 quarters. It doesn't matter who they play right now if they're going to defend like they don't give a damn and try to outscore everyone. It's bad basketball. Was the call embarrassing? Absolutely. It's a horrible precedent to set. But we can't ignore or overlook how lethargic many of their sets were, and how they let the Kings off the hook.

    And don't draw an equivalence between a basketball team playing badly and getting jobbed by a bad call, and a black guy being shot by police but being blamed for it after the fact. There are extensive studies pointing to implicit bias within law enforcement that make them more likely to shoot black men than they are people of other races.

    +1 the police killing analogy is off base. We're talking about a game.

    I knew somebody in the politically correct brigade would take offense to my analogy...nobody ever said they have to be equal in comparison.
    Ie:
    "It's a LITTLE cold? Yeah, and Hitler was a LITTLE evil!" "Hey man, don't compare the weather to the extermination of an entire people based on religion!!!"

    You're disgraceful. Calling you out on a false equivalence doesn't make me politically correct. It was a garbage analogy rooted in ignorance. So of course, you double down and bring up Hitler. Shameful.

    KeonClark wrote:
    That's the problem that I pointed out, comparison doesn't have to be an equivalent. Should I have prefaced it with "an indirect analogy which is far less important than its comparison on a scale of 1:1000000; so you didn't get your knickers in a twist?

    Haha I'm disgraceful now. Get over yourself.

    There are many ways to get a point across without bringing up black men getting shot by the police, or making a caustic remark about Hitler. Don't want to get called out on it? Don't make those types of comparisons. It's that simple.

    +2 it's gross. Plz stop


    So even before KeonClark went after Abbas, he was already making these analogies. I'm still baffled that I got an infraction against me for "attempting to moderate others". Still, there is nothing "tongue-in-cheek" about these comments. Nothing whatsoever.
Working...
