    Thanks. I think Larry Brown was the wrong coach for him, especially for a rookie.

    He needed to go to a situation where they were developing young players.

    Sure, one can say that if he were going to be good, he would have overcome that. And he had other chances in Orlando and Memphis.

    But I also think it's different when dealing with an 18 year old's confidence.

    Sort of fitting this forum which once had a dedicated subforum just for Darko discussion to end with a Darko discussion.

    I think he was a bum. Bad attitude, wasn't raised to have high character. And that's hard to learn surrounded by loose women, booze, big money and TV cameras all around.

    How we raise kids determines what happens to our civilization. Maybe Darko's folks did the best they could under the circumstances, but he was woefully unprepared for life in the NBA.

    Yes, fair enough.

    I just wanted to mention the possibility that there could be a way to maintain the forum's history if someone wanted to start a new forum on their own. But, as you've explained, it would have to be someone trusted not only by you, but others connected to you too. And it would have to happen quickly.

    When I said "someone" above, I didn't mean an unknown person, but someone trusted.

    Thank you for your responses in this thread. I find it easier to digest with a warning like you've provided, vs. this place closing without any warning or explanation.

    Plus we can see who is likely to go to the FB group, or not go.

    And as you said, there is time for people to exchange some contact info so they don't lose touch, especially those that don't join FB.

    What about this possibility.

    There are hosted free forums out there that can be started from scratch, like Pro Boards.

    That way, no one has to maintain anything.

    I'm thinking people prefer a message board format over FB.

    So is that something others would consider?

    Yes, here's an example of what I mean in my last post (#225), which was after this one above (#202).

    I think it looks good. And it's hosted so should be less maintenance.

    But it's up to what the majority of others prefer.

    I guess I didn't know what was going on off the court. Maybe you're right.

    Personally, I don't put as much stock when I hear rumors of someone with a bad attitude on the court, because the specifics and sources are usually vague. For example, Rajon Rondo is rumored to have a bad attitude, but I just don't think he's ever acted or done anything so bad that someone can't get over in a few minutes.

    I mean, it's not like he's De'Angelo Russell recording private conversations with Nick Young. Or Deron Williams throwing a ball on the court at Gordon Hayward.

    Even Zach Randolph punching Ruben Patterson in 2003, that was seemingly a one-time thing, and Randolph wouldn't do those things in the future. And I think heated incidents like that, sometimes it just happens, and teammates can get over it. Sometimes.

    But if you're saying Milicic wasn't prepared for life off the court, then that's something I didn't really consider before. Len Bias, or MLBers Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden had problems with that (although that was drugs and alcohol, and not women).

    If he wasn't focused because of life in the NBA, and the different things available to players, then yeah, that's a problem.

    So good points.

    Forumotion offers user features similar to those of XenForo and vBulletin. But, from what I understand the modding features are not as good.

    Have at it. I'll join. :pop2:

    If there's this thread:

    Forum Upgrades

    Then maybe there should also be a "Forum Downgrades" Thread. :wink:

    I liked Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic but my favorite former Yugoslavian player was Toni Kukoc. His game was more similar to Kevin Garnett's game, I think.

    Bumping this as a reminder, get contact info from people if you want it. I am going to do some funky stuff with the domain name, and can't guarantee how that will effect the forum this week.

    Well, I guess I never will get to find out if this Roscoe character is a relative of Rascoe. Perhaps he is a sock puppet. I will use the cherished word one last time... Damned CANNUCKIANS!! :smiley hug:

    Well, dear friends. Paradoxically, I only came back to say goodbye. Which I've done. Thank you all for the great times. We stuck together through the good times and bad. For various reason we lost many along the way but we also picked up really great people over the years. I will be in contact with some of you when fantasy football starts this season. After that I cannot make any commitments regarding facebook or anything else. You'll always hold a special place in my heart and no matter what the future brings there will never be another forum like this one.

    Signing out for the last time. Fortune be with you and God bless you all. :darthvader:
