Just now saw this. Really sad. I hope this little community continues to live on in some way. It's been part of my life for more than a decade now, and even though I haven't been active lately, it still has a special place in my heart.

also sad to hear this news...and went through the trouble of figuring out how to login to my old aol account so i could retrieve the password and login here to actually post. although i haven't posted in a long time, i've been a regular reader the past several years. sad to watch as traffic has declined, and even sadder that this community will go away. will always have good memories from this place.

djb - you are 100% justified in making whatever decision you do. thank you for creating and sustaining this community, which has some of the most intelligent sports discussion anywhere on the web.

and if there is some sort of movement to crowd-fund and keep d-m going, i will certainly contribute.

+1... Given the responses in this thread, it looks like money is the one obstacle we can easily overcome -- but I understand there's more to it than that.

Sad to hear, will miss this place for sure. Many intelligent and civil minds here, and I have noticed the decline of active members over the years.

The only Mavs & NBA forum that I participate in, even if it's just to read, wouldn't know where to go now, been here quite a while, was lurking for 2 years here before I even joined.

Thanks for the memories. Was a lurker for awhile until I finally made an account in 2011 because I couldnt talk to anyone at home about the Mavs.

Twitter sucks but I enjoy reading what others say. Dont post much during games on there.

No hard feelings on it getting shut down. Sounds like theres way more to it than the money and Im not in the owner's shoes.

Hopefully we find a spot to continue this forum in some capacity.

Yeah, I started lurking here back in 2003, but finally broke down and made an account after the 2006 Finals because I lived in Austin (Spurs country) and there was absolutely nobody I could talk to about it... I just needed a place to vent at first, but it became so much more than that over the years.

I'm sure you guys are familiar with this bit of philosophy:

Quote:
A college professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty glass mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a jar of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open spaces between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar and of course the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous yes.

The professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table and then proceeded to pour the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the grains of sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things -- your family, your partner, your health, your children, your friends, your favorite passions -- things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

"The pebbles are the other things that matter, like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else -- the small stuff.

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out dancing. Play another 18.

"There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first -- the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of beers."
For me, D-M has been the "beer" in my life... Most people turn to Facebook or Reddit whenever they're bored and need to kill a few minutes, but for me, this forum has been the place that fills the downtime in my life (ahh, who am I kidding -- 26k posts since 2006 -- this site has pretty much been the "golf balls" for me!)

I think you missed the point -- obviously the story is about how I have to get stinkin' drunk to watch the Mavs these days!

That's a pretty cool analogy, thanks UD.

And now that you mention reddit, they do have a Mavs sub. Admittedly I'm not a big fan of reddit but it's an alternative too and I guess it would be better than twitter for GDT kind of stuff.

Clutchfans --> Quantity (Harden)
Dallas-Mavs --> Quality (Dirk)

But, yeah, Harden sells and Dirk doesn't, so that's that...

I saw you posted that new posters were discouraged from starting new threads. I'd like to see that because I've ONLY encouraged people to start new threads.

And Clutchfans is 90% garbage posts. I can't imagine how any of the decent posters could read through all of that to get their point across. They started a fire Bickerstaff thread the second he became coach. That thread and get rid of James Harden threads are still going strong. What kind of reward as a fan is there to go on about that and just complain because you can? Would you really want to post here if our two most posted in threads were to get rid of Dirk and Carlisle?

That narrative is almost as annoying as the "Dirk is soft" narrative... There was a stretch several years back where a few really sh!tty posters kept posting completely redundant threads and the members of this forum eventually told them to F off... And amen to that -- if you can't take the time to read other peoples' posts and see if there's already a thread covering the subject you're posting, then you don't respect this board enough to deserve posting here... That's always been a big reason why Fish's site sucks.

But I don't recall anyone other than a few specific dipsh!ts being told they needed to quit posting new threads... Unfortunately, those dipsh!ts relished in bringing it up at every turn (like the dipsh!ts they are), so now decent posters like Bookit have come to accept the narrative. I guess that's all it takes.

It's 100% true.... It definitely was an issue.

Care to elaborate? You've definitely been a perpetuator of this myth (probably due to your consistently waning popularity...)

Damn.

Some of my Mavs memories are more this forum than Mavs themselves as I'm sure it is with many of the non-Texas fans.

Alas, all good things come to an end. I appreciate the time and space I shared with yall.

Have you tried reading that forum? Like an incompetent quail hunter firing in every careless direction hoping to hit something.

I'm sure my consistently waning popularity has more to do with my decreasing lack of time or energy to provide research to back up my opinions. Like many, I still like the Mavs, but life has changed... I had a great 7-8 year run... And then work and life pretty much got in the way.

I can certainly relate to life and work getting in the way.

As for twitter, I've made an account and currently following UD and KG. I'll start following the rest of you guys later this evening.

I suppose /r/mavericks will have to suffice even though I enjoyed this forum board much more.

Any volunteers to help setup http://mavsforum.com? I just haven't had the time this week, and will have zero time this weekend :/
