    Censorship: Antoine Walker discussion removed?

    Unbelievable.  We tried to have an honest discussion. to flesh out the pros and cons of an Antoine return, and a couple of threads are subsequently taken down.  Is it now inappropriate to promote a point of view around here?  This is pathetic.

    That is odd.  I thought it was a fair discussion of Twon with some valid points about the good things he did for us.  Who knows, maybe someone tacked a porno link onto it when nobody was looking and it got canceled for that.

    These threads  aren't just moved. They are deleted.

    Considering the garbage that is winked at and allowed to fester (think "Tainted Championship"), I am surprised at these thoughtful threads are removed.

    I'm wasting my breath but...... EXPLANATION PLEASE!!!!

    It does seem odd that this discussion was removed.  I have read many threads that should have been removed and never were.

    I'm not sold on Walker, but it is a valid point for discussion. If someone put something overly offensive on there, the mods should remove the post and not the thread.

    Are there efforts to find out what happened to these threads going on behind the scenes?

    I sincerely hope so. Anyone know?

    Those of us who participated  are certainly entitled to some sort of an explanation.

    why i agree it shouldn't have been removed, walker was DONE years ago, and even when he was here I didn't want him here as a sub 40% shooting pf who jacked 3's, refused to play in the post and wanted millions to do it. And the walker wiggle was a joke to watch.. It's time for those who did like his pathetic game to face reality.. He ate himself out of the league and walker isn't waddling through that door!

    And what keeps this thread from being unceremoniously deleted too?

    Same subject matter.

    Maybe they should have been removed.

    The moderator who did the deleting had his/her reasons. It didn't happen in a vacuum. What  are they????

    No worse a shooter than Mr. Injury Jermaine O'Neal, and no worse a player than also 33 year old Tim Thomas, who will likely get the vet min from 55 win Dallas.  And Walker looked far from done in the 07 playoffs, even though the media basically ignored it.  And if we are back in L.A. for another game 7 next year, you better believe we will miss having Antoine Walker--not only for the basketball, but for that positive and fiery energy during the 4th quarter timeouts when the L.A. crowd is at a fever pitch.... I've tried to show that this is NOT fluff, because Walker's positive impact has been demonstrated again and again and again on different teams.  Anyone have game 6 of the 06 finals on tape? 

    Oh well, I guess we aren't allowed to talk about him and that's a shame. 

    Yo Pud!  The last thing I wrote before the threads got taken down... you had mentioned that you have some of the 05 Celtics games on tape... just wondering which ones??  That Phoenix game was great shortly after the trade.  Man that was a fun time.  My motto is "never say never", if you had told me in 2004 that a year later Antoine Walker would be back with the Celtics I would have laughed at you!  NEVER even thought it was possible.

    "thought it was a fair discussion of Twon with some valid points about the good things he did for us."

    While there was certainly SOME valid discussion, what I read of the thread indicated that it had digressed into a blatant name-calling and "my opinion is better than yours" match. I was surprised it lasted as long as it did.

    Well it was unfortunate we had the whole " "molded knucklehead" with "an IQ equal to that of an overripe half eaten banana" talk, but I don't get how that means an entire week-long discussion should just be thrown away.

    Talk to Meredith at BDC to get a read on what happened. Otherwise it is liable to happen again and again.

    Re the VCR recordings after AW returned from the Mavs, my memory is a bit foggy but the C's went on a long win streak... to the point that I started recording the games for the first time that season.

    I believe that I have(somewhere) most of that win streak.

    you probably meant to say that it's clear that Toineson is really Antoine Walker or his agent, a little fumble there but still a nice try.

    Although I am completely against the return of Walker and am not amused by the suggestion of the possibility, I don't believe the thread should be removed because of the topic.  The view that he could help is asinine, but anyone should be able to have a foolish idea without fear of censorship.  There are enough sane people here to argue against the notion without an intrusion from a moderator.  Or, maybe there were inappropriate posts that just couldn't be separated from the entire discussion.

    Who says that casinos are not run by the mob?  Didn't the Sopranos teach us anything?  You probably don't think there are vampires among us either. Or "V". Or werewolves. Or faeries. Or a Lakers' dynasty.  Alright, so maybe these things are indeed fantasy.

    Listen, I have complete respect for those of you who are of the opinion that Antoine Walker can no longer help this team.  And while I think all of you are wrong, it's completely understandable.  And #8, even though you hadn't come right out and said it until now I assumed that you probably weren't on board with this idea either.  No problem, I get where you're coming from... 

    But when views are labeled "asinine", ideas are deemed "foolish" and there is talk of notions being argued down by the "sane"... with this kind of talk, all that you have provided are insights about yourself instead of the topic at hand.  Painter I'll do the work for you, it is completely asinine for 55 win Dallas to sign 33 year old Tim Thomas at the vet minimum.  Even though he's taller than Walker, only once in his career has Thomas averaged over 7 rebounds per 36 minutes (in 05-06 when he played for fast-paced Phoenix).  Last season in 18 games he averaged a pitiful 5.2 per 36.  He cannot match Walker's playmaking and ball-handling skills (and imo, winner's intangibles), and like Walker he can be a streaky 3 point shooter.  And it seems unlikely that he will be as determined and motivated as Antoine Walker.  Mark Cuban, it is completely asinine to sign Tim Thomas when Antoine Walker is still available, you had your chance at adding a player who has actually won an NBA championship and you blew it.  And Mikhail Prokhorov, it is foolish to sign Sean May when Antoine Walker is still available.
