I have openly admitted my lack of basketball knowledge. I think the more you know about this game, the more you can be confounded by it. I appreciate people who neither feel inadequate for not being too sure about stuff they might throw out there, nor feel superior when someone else throws something out there that seems a little silly at first glance. There are no right or wrong answers, especially since none of our ideas are going to shape the team we love too much.

I cringe whenever anyone says "you know nothing about basketball". It's just too easy to fall back on that, and it's usually unfair.

Nope, it seems to be really catching on, ive heard several ppl use this phrase in the last week like it proves you know more by questioning what others know, it only proves you think you know more, just stating why you disagree with somebody is a better way to go about it then saying, i question your knowledge, i have more experience, go learn to play, learn to coach, blah blah blah why they know more, just makes you come across like a douche imo, im sure others may feel differently but i dont see anything gained by these kind of statements but riling up ppl

It does happen a lot. It always has. And probably always will. But it does suck.

Im not trying to call anybody out, and i wont name names or w/e, i just think it kind of needed to be addressed, no hard feeling to anybody, and if you feel im pointing at your directly, im not, this is definately in general, ive never said these type of things and i never will.

N yeah i agree with you Ugo Ferst. Of course some people have more knowledge than others but this is a place where people want to discuss basketball and if someone lacks knowledge at least they're here to learn something. So instead of clowning on someone that just starting liking basketball or simply lacks knowledge we should enlighten 'em

I think I've used that phrase when people say outrageous things like "solomon is a better player than Calderon" or "JO is playing for stats". When I use it, I mean to question basic basketball knowledge, not some advanced stuff, so I don't see how it can be seen as arrogance or anything like that.

It's one thing to say that Bosh is not a franchise player, when you can debate the term "franchise player" and its full implications, and completely another to say that solomon is a better player than Calderon.

i suppose you could question someones knowledge when someone doesn't know that 'on' implies defense. MOREMILK!
