Mistwell attempted to post my name and personal info back then

I do not recall that at all. How they heck would I have known that information?

You absolutely 100% did. I don't know, because the information was wrong. Not sure how you came up with the name.

You sure it was not a joke? What was the wrong name, do you recall?

No I don't.

Well, if it was not a joke, then meaningless as it might seem this many years later I sincerely apologize for that. That's not cool. People are entitled to their privacy if they want it.

Are you the type that checks both Facebook PMs, and the main post area?

 

It seems that some people I know only check the main area, and not their PMs.

Honestly it's hard to check PMs here. There is no notice that pops up. I do check FB PMs though. 

 

I meant Facebook PMs.

 

As for PMs here on ClipperTalk, there's supposed to be notifications.

 

I get email alerts when there's PMs.

 

But then it stopped working for over a year from September 2016 - November 2017.  Then they started working again.

 

Now, the past 1 - 2 weeks, I think they're not working again.

 

I've tried to tell DoubleTechnical that notifications aren't working, but he hasn't responded.  I used his email address, as well as some threads on here, to notify him.

 

He does respond usually when there's spam bots, though.

I can't help here.  I don't remember this well enough to know what name you did or didn't post, and whether it was a joke or not.

I have no problem sharing my picture online. Nuraman has met me IRL.


 

 

 

HAHAHA if that is a real photo, it's awesome! Is that from the old Quark's Bar at the Las Vegas Hilton? I loved that bar. Was so sad when they took it down and sold off the parts at auction. I did steal a menu from them before they closed though. We make Warp Core Breach drinks sometimes for parties. 

 

The pic is real.  There's also a Steve Urkel pose that he did.

I'd rather have an apology for the spok-look a like picture that keeps getting reposted in this thread.

Trapp and CAM used to war all day every day, calling each other names. Then Trapp posted a real life picture of CAM (and made fun of his looks), which (rightly) pissed CAM off. So he said fuck this, I am starting my own blog where I don't have to deal with shit that's that low, and he left. 

That's not exactly how it went down, nice story though lol.

We actually agreed on a lot of stuff, particularly politics. We also agreed that Kaman was wildly overrated when most of the board disagreed.

In a nutshell, he was stuck in the battered wife syndrome Clipper fan mode of the old days and thought we would always be bad, but I was more optimistic, I knew we could pull out of it and be a successful franchise. He disagreed and we basically battled over that until the point the Clippers did indeed become a successful franchise and he basically had his core thesis of "the clippers will always be a horrible organization" destroyed. Then he left, took his ball and went home (to his own blog).

His identity was already public knowledge at the time, I wasn't exposing anything that wasn't already out there readily available on the internet to begin with, but whatever, water under the bridge....and I would not compare him to VagFHS, he was much more intelligent and well spoken. Vag is just your basic dumb internet troll.

 

How did you know it before his blog?

 

Do you, by any chance, remember what the other song was, whose lyrics he posted but changed so that it was about you?  The one I remember was Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire", but changed so that it was about your "verjeen".  

There are ways to find out who people are. For example, I know Mistwell's identity and what he looks like.

Frick...why not. I say we all get together for beers to watch the NBA draft.

Nuraman:  Good point.  Maybe it's better than to keep it all on one thread instead of going on threads that were long and started a few days ago.

It was one of the worst trades ever.  There are so many reasons it's a horrible trade, that I almost don't know where to start.
I was trying to rack my brains and think about what trades in the history of the league were worse and the only two that came to mind (I'm not talking about trades that turned out to be one-sided, I'm talking about trades that when they were made, they even made no sense).  The first trade was before the salary cap era.  That would be Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to the Lakers for a bag of chips.  But the salary cap era causes a whole new set of factors to be considered.  In the salary cap era, the only trade that comes to mind is Harden for several players and picks, the only one of consequence being Steven Adams.  
 

 

Never forget everyone, the Blake Griffin trade, one of the “worst trades ever” (tm).

Gotta love the framing here:

- "Even though we used the DET pick to draft SGA, we didn't really use the DET pick to draft SGA."  
This is simple, if DET owned the 12th pick, they would have taken SGA with that pick or traded up with the Hornets like we did. Bottom line, if we don't make the Blake trade, we don't get SGA. One spot there means all the difference.

- "We only win the Blake trade if we sign KD and Kawhi with two max slots". 
Tobias Harris BY HIMSELF is a better player than Blake Griffin and gets paid less. We already won the trade just based off that alone. We don't need to "wait and see" if we won the trade.
The fact that we also got SGA, plus Bradley, plus Boban, plus a future 2nd, plus possibly two max cap space spots in 2019 is all just icing on the cake. 

The ironic thing is that his comment that the Blake trade was one of the "worst trades ever" was correct, if you're the Detroit Pistons (and that's why SVG got fired for making this trade after the season was over).

It’s funny to me that the two most active threads right now are threads by cam even though he’s been here like twice.

You could post in the MLB thread.  Haven't heard your thoughts since April.
