“My boy Melo’s got a good heart, but he just don’t got the spatial ability to find his way through the curvy alleyways of Paris.”

LOL! :laugh:

That's absolutely hilarious. Most amateur parodies are tedious, but this one was a great work of absurdist humour.

From the article:

"The three seemed to hit it off instantly; perhaps the common struggle of “coming of age” united them. "

I loved that part -- lebron and carmelo with a 3 year old kid -- and the image to go with it

You're kidding. A humour article used it? Well, that's clear proof that it's not insulting, since no humour site would dare use a term that could be considered derogatory. :rolleyes:

I also edit "Fakers," "Queens," etc. Nothing contructive arises out of such insults.

PM me, if you want to discuss this further.

minstrel it wasnt just that article ive read using it. NBA.com even uses that term, and quotes shaqs comments on the sac queens. Thats an official site, if its good enough to write on there why then isnt it over here. It wasnt a personal attack on a member, hell i dont even think blazers fans would take offense to it. Ive often heard them reffer to the team using that name.

NBA.com uses that term when quoting others. It doesn't take it upon itself to call teams "Fakers," or "Jailblazers."

It wasnt a personal attack on a member
I didn't say it was. But derogatory nicknames for teams and players are not encouraged in the terms for this site, under harrassment.

hell i dont even think blazers fans would take offense to it. Ive often heard them reffer to the team using that name.
It's been my experience that on the Portland board that members get tired of hearing their team referred to as such, especially since it's untrue...Portland hasn't had higher legal trouble than other teams over the last few years.

If you want, you can PM me to continue this discussion. If you disagree with my moderation and don't want to take it up with me, you can PM a Community Moderator or Admin. But I won't continue discussing it on this thread.

Okay, glad we could hash it out, then.
