    He's OP. You have to survive his rules. You can break them, but your +/- poster rating might take a negative hit.

    The force is strong in this thread. Stay positive, or take a hit.

    Ask yourself: Is being the lone negative voice of the day worth it, when there are 6 other threads to use.

    He's not even following his own rules. If he didn't make posts defending Anderson in the "Take a dump on Anderson" threads then I wouldn't be criticizing Anderson here.

    Are you saying the OP can break his own rules but others can't?

    This thread really does bother you, doesn't it?

    Negative Metativity is not a positive or worthwhile way to risk your +/- poster rating against an OP en fuego.

    What bothers me is the hypocrisy of someone telling me not do something he does all the time.

    The OP isn't a mod, and he shouldn't penalize me for doing something he does all the time.

    I am risking being nitpicky but there are no "Take a dump on Anderson" threads on the cluthfans

    'Anderson is kiling us' thread started a frustrated fan expressing their frustration , and of course asking for discussion with others on the topic as it is usual on the forums, it doesnt say that the thread is dedicated solely to the hate, it is even confirmed by ommission of the word 'thread' in the title whereas all the aforementioned is clearly stated in the title and repeatedly clarified in this thread

    Stay on topic. Meta negativity never works. Ask all those ppl who tried to post in the v2 thread without an image.

    Ryan Anderson 6-10 from 3 the last time we played in Phoenix, in Paul's first game back.

    Um, those aren't specific "negative vibe" threads. Those threads are DISCUSSION about Anderson. You can say any opinions about the dude there. This thread, however, is not a discussion thread. Why is it so hard to understand. Or is your Ryno hate just clouding your mind?

    Like so many posters have pointed out to you. If you want to discuss about Anderson, there are plenty of threads to do it. If you want to create a thread only for negative vibe, go ahead and do it. If you want to start a Harden positive vibe thread, go ahead and do it. Nobody is stopping you. Just try not to derail a thread.

    so we can know if y'all did a good job sending him vibes

    just curious what is the bar for a starting 3-pt specialist/spacer 3rd highest paid making $20M?

    I think Morey would at least require 3 of these 5:
    14 pts per game
    4 made 3s per game
    40% from the arc
    +6 game box plus minus
    25 minutes per game

    Tonight is the night it all comes around, let's turn that corner. Ryno played 35 minutes last game and we won, we'll need another 35min-plus game from him 2night as he'll basically be our reserve C, alongside Tucker. Don't care if his shot isn't falling, though I trust RoadRyno will hit 5 triples. Just play D and get to the glass and the 3 ball will come back. We believe in Ryno!!!

    In all seriousness, I'm pretty positive he desperately needs one good game to get the confidence back in his shot. He's been missing badly, even his FT is off. He seems to be overthinking each time he gets the ball. Let it fly, man!

    Come on Ryno! Quick trigger tonight, less pump fakes/dribbling, and continue to hustle on defense and the boards.

    c'mon dude, Ryno is like this season's version of Corey Brewer . . . occasionally bumbling, always adorable. Root for the underdog.

    Only one person in the history of the NBA has done that -- Stephen Curry (twice).
    So, that alone would probably garner Max money from a big.

    You might want to lower that a little to match your $20m criteria

    And if you lower it to 3 per game, that's only been done 20 times, and no PF or C has ever done it. (and btw, Mr $23m JJ Redick has also never done it, either.) Closest thing to a big was Peja did it just once. Now, if you do 2.8, then you still have no PFs (except Ryan Anderson) who has done it, and only 30 total times in history (still no JJ Redick).

    Now, recall, your criteria is an exercise is stating what Morey's criteria is: The reason Morey would pay money for the fact no other PF has done 2.8 like Ryan did last year is because it allows you to fill the roster with easier to attain wing and guard shooters, such that you can field four 3pt-shooters on a regular basis.

    So, what should we lower your unreasonable, Curry-level only, 4 made 3s per game to? 3 or 2.8 or maybe 3 per 100 possessions?

    GO RYNO!
    GO ROCKETS!

    Rockets' Ryan Anderson regaining confidence
    By Hunter Atkins, Houston Chronicle

    Updated 5:16 pm, Wednesday, January 10, 2018

    Ryan Anderson sounded relieved when TV cameras and fans captured him saying "I made one! I made one!" in the Rockets' latest win on Monday night, but Anderson emphasized that he's regaining confidence despite dips in his shooting attempts and percentage this season.

    "In the heat of the game I missed two 3s," he said of the 116-107 win over the Bulls. "I made one. I was happy to make one."


    The Rockets could use a boost from him on Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, which allow fewer than 26 3-point shots per game, the second-lowest rate in the NBA. (The Rockets average nearly 44 per game.)

    "I feel good about my shots," Anderson said. "They're in line. My misses are short. My shot just feels good. My mechanics feel good."

    I really thought clutchfans.net would get behind Ryno playing better. I didn't realize so many would have a problem giving him positive vibes.

    Where's the positive vibes to James Harden or the countless threads crushing black players such as Corey brewer etc? The American pie white guy always has undying support. Black ppl learn from this.
