Twitter. I don't like replying to him on there, because of the character limit, but Facebook changes the game a bit.

I blame Twitter to some degree for dumbing down a lot of the public. Just with those character limits alone, it encourages people to become accustomed to responding that way in such short manners & thus leaving out a lot of other more important points & logic in the process.

He needs to stop living off Ron's career and name because it's getting old. The only reason why people even listen to what he has to say is because he is related to Ron.

 

He accuses Jim of hiring MDA without consulting Mitch,  when it was Mitch who called Phil and told him the Lakers were going in a different direction. It was Dr. Buss' decision to hire MDA and it was his final decision in the hospital.

He's the one with no basketball talent right? DA and Rose's brother should stop living through their siblings.

What about JR Smith's brother trying to desperately constantly get him to hook him up with the Knicks giving him a roster spot?

Good point. If you're ever in a library and see the book, you should checkout "What the internet is doing to our brains" by Nicholas Carr.

You guys have no idea how long I've waited for that opportunity. He thinks he's a celebrity, and he trashes the fans every chance he gets on Twitter. I don't like replying to him on there, because of the character limit, but Facebook changes the game a bit.

I'm so glad he opened that door. Sick of this dude.

even though i don't post much on here * i observe frequently* and we don't have much of a rapport... thanks for having my back along with other laker fans.

So true I see so many younger people 12-20 complain about "walls of texts" on FaceBook or Forums. Society has become so lazy to the point where logical sounded arguments and well written responses has become against the norm. 

 

 

Hell most forum posters put TL:DR which stands for "too long did not read" with a summary of what a wall of text had in one sentence. 

 

definitely agree with you on Twitter aiding in this change. 


Laker fan for life.

^ Yeah, sadly it happens here even, a lot of times with people ganging up on Majesty especially or a few others. The only time I personally have somewhat of a gripe with it is when people make long posts, but don't break up their paragraphs or anything at all, when it just looks like one huge mess that's completely overwhelming to even try to follow, but overall yeah, it's discouraging to see people try & discourage others at times when they put so much actual time & effort into their posts to try to make better points & arguments & ultimately enhance the quality of the forum & discussion.
