RIP WAB

Did WAB pass?

Unless I misremembering the name. He was an older guy right? 
His daughter (or maybe it was another poster) came on and posted his obituary and then talked a minute with us about how much he loved his Mavs community. 

That may have been another poster but I thought it was WAB.

0k, I feel bad because I'm having trouble remembering his name. Was it OldTimeNBAer? Someone at LMF had that name and it's in my head because I think the fellow who passed away had a similar name.

OldTimeNBAer is still doing a good job posting over at LMF.  And I liked NBAJunkie as well, over at db.com

haha... My bad. Got the wrong name. I really enjoyed WAB post and I enjoyed NBAJunkie's post too (if that's who it was) so I guess that's how I merged them together

Perfect springboard. Thanks fif.

Lets talk about Luka's tattoos and how we need Pastor Barnes to bring him to the light!

There was a guy, PepperFletch maybe, that always signed Peace and Fried Chicken from the DMN to LMF transition.
Ah, the memories. I looked myself up, supposedly I joined the LMF board in 2004, but I recall posts regarding Gary Trent and Erik Strickland. I always wondered about keven, I enjoyed his posts.

Unfortunately, one year I joined a LMF fantasy basketball league and it came down to the last day of games to determine the league championship. I was leading in several categories, including Turnovers, but trailing in others, such as points. So I actually benched a number of my turnover-prone players thinking that was a better strategy instead of chasing points, which I thought I was unlikely to win anyways (tanking!). keven was really hot at me as I recall for benching my players, and said I was cheesy and therefore the league was cheesy (that might have been FK, actually). Not a great feeling to have two great posters who aren't happy with your tactics. I stood my ground and would still do it again, but we didn't have a great exchange. Unfortunately, I never saw him post again that I recall and so I am sorry we left things that way -- I was wondering about him during the hurricanes.

Ron was a curmudgeon - he was all about war of attrition and tough-nosed basketball. Gary was very folksy and conversational. FK was esoteric and great, and keven was very principled. I still feel more comfortable posting over there but I enjoy the conversations here, too.

LOL.

Got my morning laugh out the way now.

People passing away left and right on this board. Sad day.

Da Riv what you remember prior to "registering" was from the old SportsOnly.com board. That to me was the glory days... the migration to the current LMF board didn't really hurt membership but the vibe was truly different IMO.
