If it was secondhand, why did you run with it?


Run? Who ran? That is very clear doubt, and the first of a series of tweets discussing the contest between the Pelicans and Heat.

You are, again, mischaracterizing things to serve some end of yours.

Almost but not definitive. I don't think you deserve the flack you've gotten because you contribute more than 99 percent of the posters here with information. I don't doubt you have a little bit of inside information. Just addressing my viewpoint of the statement.

I did.

So did the Heat.

Note the previously unreported and likely new player option they offered him.

Or is this fact lost on you?



So now the public is supposed to assume that the Heat threw in the PO after that tweet?

Keep grasping for straws.

I suggest you just abandon the thread, 42. Only making it worse. Was this your goal all along? To start a 40 page thread?

If you think that is too definitive, apologies.

I think also disclosing that I had limited visibility of the chain back to Oden was warning enough, but if you found it lacking, I'll use a different phrase next time and see if it works for you and others.

Plus, I would add that shortly-later statements as part of the same series discussing the "to the wire" contest would show that it was clearly not definitive.

But you have been heard and your feedback is duly noted.

No. I think they reacted to strong statements from Oden's camp.

Those statements, I think, were what I and others heard.

Two consequences from the same cause, not one cause, one effect.

This sort of thing is covered in basic logic courses, FYI.

I wouldn't sweat it too much. I haven't seen 90% of the arguing to be honest. I'm more kind of drunk fueling the fire and voicing opinion. I think you're a decent poster. I just don't want you to become or be the guy that acts like he's this real legit poster with all these sources for extra attention and shite. I don't think that and think all this is way overblown. It's pretty comical. It reminds me of people only remembering the bad calls from referees or umpires instead of all the good.

Invent nothing.

Do you represent BBS or not?

Is BBS one of the main Pelican-focused publications?

Did you not tweet that a source told you Oden was heading to NOLA?

I not saying you had a motive.

But you dont say "someone told me something, and I believe"

and then say "well this and this and this may happen"


you're talking out both sides of your mouth. You either believe it to be true, or dont say that. To me, the other stuff is said just in case you are wrong. You can back track and do exactly what you are doing right now. It's Media 101

The statements are there for people to judge accordingly. Feel free to disbelieve everything in the future.

I am not tapdancing into your poorly laid rhetoric trap.

I gave my info, I gave my qualifiers, and I have my record of nailing things like Arena renovations, TV deal, rebrand, and more well in advance of other places. Continue to pretend you don't know that, ok? Continue to pretend that you think the `answer' was known this morning and Oden just sat around for 10h not telling anyone, ok?

And continue to erode your credibility here while you do it, ok?

The only one who has lost credibility here is you. Why don't you just own up to what you did instead of making all kinds of excuses?

But with your name tied to them all. Feel free to keep your head in the sand.

Actually, that's exactly what you have done because of what you have said below.

Nope, you're not tap dancing at all there.

Nah, you've done enough of that for both of us.

No. And no.

You can call it talking out of both sides of ones mouth. You can also call it starting to say something, then saying more, then saying more.

You can pretend the more and more isn't there.

But it is.

Just heard secondhand that Oden is NOLA-bound. I believe who told me, didn't ask about the chain. We shall see. - 42

Others saying NOLA and Heat still. Not sure which data is the freshest. Seems like today though. Heard nothing about other teams. - 42

Bear in mind NOLA rumors could be real or an effort to drive up Miami's price. Waiting may all be a game of Heat chicken. Who blinks? - 42

It is title hopes in Miami v comfort here. And you know money is in there. Could be the last payday. It has to be one factor. - 42

This is totally messing with my only day at Saints camp. Excuse spelling and delays. Glare and temperature not helping. - 42

Turns out, the OP didn't even include the "We shall see." So definitive.

I don't need to own up. What I did was right out in public. I'm not hiding behind a new username.

Broski,

You are now just not even making sense with the vague lobs.

And saying "I laid down a poor rhetoric" because you refused to answer three simple questions is what exactly?

The amount of flack that 42 is getting is ridiculous.

You people crave info. Someone gives you what they think is. They are wrong and you crucify them.

In short, a lot of you are unreasonable twats.
