Sorry, it'll have to wait till I get home tonight. I guess this isn't office etiquette.
What did the male colleagues do??

If I can be sure that I'm not going to come here and find threads about my weak character or specifically targeting my views on Jose as interpreted by Benzo, as Benzo has promised, then I'm pretty good. Even better would be no threats of such things in the first place, and no attempts to turn every statement I make into part of a turf war that I never wanted.

I like to see my posts as part of an overall dance, not as an opportunity to do battle on a daily basis. Sorry for blathering on today. I just want some actual resolution, because honestly I'm sick of being blindsided and then told to get over myself. I guess that's way too much to ask for, but at least I've made myself as clear as I can.

I'll take a bit of a break, because I realize that it takes two to tango and that I have danced that particular dance too much myself. I need some time to fill my ipod and do some other shit, so I'm going to take the opportunity now and do everything I can to come back absolutely grudgeless.

Well, don't take too long LX because you're a valuable contributor here. I personally don't think its doing any harm to your character, (in fact I haven't really read into it at all) but that's just an observation from an outsider. Do what you have to do man to clear your mind or whatever, but don't forget where to find us.

Alright man. I was going to let it go untill this.

I'm going to make this as clear as possible, because other people really don't need to be bothered with this stuff. You seem to think I have some vendetta against you, that I am always looking to call you out. It couldnt be furthar from the truth, I treat you know differently than many others around here. I blindside you? You just brought me up on another website, out of blue. I accually give it quite little thought. I don't remember threatening you..thats crazy. I don't even see this "turf war" you speak off, its crazy. There are people here that can atest to the fact that on a number of occassions, I have spoken quite highly of you, but I'll be damnded if I am going to tip toe around fearing I may hurt your feelings. I don't think I have ever attacked your "character".

How did this all start...I said people will eat there words...how is this a personal attack on you...I don't get it.

I a very simple person...Not some mastermind hell bent on making you crazy.

Do your thing...unlike you I think you can bring alot to a forum, when your not preoccupied with what I do or say.

and I suppose thats all I have to say about that.

Off of the top of my head I'll bet you Stromile Swift, Joe Smith, Tyrus Thomas, Hakim Warrick and Andris Beidrins are all lighter.
narr only played half the season for them though. I'm not a Charlotte follower by any stretch, so I woudn't know exactly how many, but the mere fact that they are playing him at center, shows that okafor is far from a power center ...

and sure, there are lighter players than bosh, but how many of them are stars? Among star power forwards, Bosh is the skinniest.

And you give Biedrins as an example, which I think it's interesting, because GSW just got webber to start instead of him, maybe because he was underpowered against some of the tough centers in the west?

Look, I'm not saying that okafor is a pushover, he's strong for a PF. But having him at center would not change much for us - he's small and underpowered against the top centers in the league. Sure, he will dominate stromile swift, but can he defend howard, bynum or shaq? I don't think so. Bargnani is 5cm taller and he'll get stronger + he is a mismatch in his own right. Okafor against howard is no mismatch, is pure domination. A fully developed Bargnani can pose major problems to them, okafor will never have that ability.

most everything we talk about it's moot ... Bargnani is our gamble though, we're pretty much going all-in with Andreea ... But I wuld hate to see him explode with another team.

lol gl with that one imo, i could be wrong. And yes Super im serious, we are behind, if you look at the other ppl in that years draft, they are making much more sizeable inpacts then Bargs atm. Not saying that will always be true, but you must acknowledge it for the time being, and plz stop acting like Bargs is on some superstar team with superstars taking his place is the reason his numbers are lower then the others taken the same year, cuz the Raptors are far from that. The reason for his limited min at times isnt that, its that Sam didnt/doesnt have confidence in him at times. He could still develop in2 a great player.

Bargs has been playing much better as of late and even though I was one of the ones that stated that I would trade him for Okafor, I still believe that Bargs can develop into a very good player. I don't think he'll be a flat out superstar, but he'll be alright.

In terms of other players developping, everyone knew about Roy, everyone knew he would be the best player coming out of the draft, but his knee brought up a lot of red flags. The only other player that Colangelo was considering was Rudy Gay, who himself was inconsistent at UConn. Bargs played against men in the Italian league and held his own. You just have to give him a couple of year to adjust to everything. It's called being patient.

Kind of contradicting yourself here tho bud. You think he will be very good but not a superstar right? But it seems we are really depending on him to be a full blown superstar to make this team great, if he isnt gonna be that, then we picked poorly.

Not contradicting myself at all. I said that I thought he would develop into a very good player, but not a superstar. As for second guessing the pick, that's why you're a fan and not a GM.
