lll start:
  1. No one cites single game +/- as meaning anything beyond a curiosity/outlier.
  2. No one says "we have enough sample now to conclude ..." about, e.g., overtime performance after a sample of ~5 games and generally without thinking about how much sample is actually needed for the thing they are talking about.

4 - posters that use the term mentally tough need to prove they have some of it themselves before using it as a derogatory object describing the best team in the NBA.

Wait one second, what kind of SoSH jujitsu are you pulling? ;)

New Year resolutions are supposed to be what "You" can do better.

AND as long as Brad keeps on targeting positive +/- players its not going away

My Port Cellar resolution is to stop using the terms POINTZ and 2BIGZ
BUT don't get your hopes up high, I rarely follow through.

My new New Years Resolutions:

1. I will stop mocking fellow SoSH posters.

2. I will root for Brad to bring Aron Baynes back to the organization in an advisory role.

I will stop criticizing Smart for taking wide open threes with 12+ seconds left on the shot clock.

1. At some point in the playoffs, when a Celtics fourth quarter double digit lead is cut to three, I will not immediately post “here we go again” or “of course; I knew it” or “same old shit.”

2. I will redouble my efforts to point out, with or without convincing evidence or adequate sample size, that the fix is in for the Lakers. And I will also redouble my efforts to mock them whenever possible, especially when they throw tantrums about the fix not being in for them nearly enough.

1. Will have more patience with Tatum's arguing over calls
2. Will have more patience with Brown's ball-handling deficiencies
3. Will have more patience with KP (for injury) and/or Al (for old age) missing games
4. Will have more patience with Jrue taking bad shots or making bad passes
5. Will have more patience with JM's having too much patience with taking TO's
6. Will have more respect for White's haircut/facial hair style
7. Will not allow regular season reffing to bother me so much

  • I will not make snap judgements about the quality/suckiness of opposing teams.
  • I will not confidently talk about things I don't understand.
  • I will give constant, constructive feedback to Jayson Tatum to help him be the best player he can be, no matter how depressed he gets.
