Basketball playing years in infobox[edit]

DaHuzyBru - Consensus has been for the playing years to reflect actual playing dates for club tenures. I edited Seth Curry and Maalik Wayns with this consensus in mind. For historical players we use game logs to determine years played (so only "1988" would show if he played 5 games in January, 1988 during the 1987-88 season), and modern players follow the same standard even though we usually have better contract status info. This is also consistent with the convention not listing clubs where the player signed but never played (we make an exception for players who have signed but have not yet had the opportunity to play - such as an August signee for a season starting in October). A recent extreme case is Andrew Bynum, who doesn't even show the Sixers in his club history though he was under contract all last year. If you think we should use a different standard, that is fair game, but we'd need to achieve sufficient consensus at WP:NBA or WP:BASKETBALL. Rikster2 (talk) 13:40, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

DHB - Bagumba started a discussion on this. Please weigh in at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Basketball#Teams_listed_in_biography_infobox to determine how teams that a player never played a game for should be handled. Rikster2 (talk) 01:00, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Larry Abney[edit]

Yep. Pretty sure this is our banned buddy (yesterday it was Julius Hodge). Rikster2 (talk) 13:46, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Willie Simmons[edit]

Can you take a look at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Willie Simmons? I volunteered to create the article and was hoping you could verify the NBL dates listed. Might need your help citing the Australian info if you're up for it. Rikster2 (talk) 14:37, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Luke Babbitt may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s and 2 "{}"s likely mistaking one for another. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Robbie Hummel edit[edit]

If that is indeed correct, then doesn't it need to be changed in the infobox as well?Hoops gza (talk) 17:34, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

MWP buyout[edit]

Woodson was quoted as saying it was a buyout,[1][2] and MWP tweeted similar a few days back. New York Times also called it a buyout.[3] Im guessing most team press releases don't go into contract specifics?—Bagumba (talk) 06:54, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Sources in articles considered for deletion[edit]

Thanks for helping improve articles like Chris Babb that are being considered for deletion. I do ask that sources like the ones added here not be deleted, or alternatively are incorporated into the article. Note that players that do not meet WP:NBASKETBALL, can still meet WP:GNG. However, GNG asks for multiple sources of independent sources. Some may argue that is not independent enough for a player invited to an NBA training camp. This is why I usually try to add a few independent sources to stub articles that are being questioned. Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 20:28, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Interested in doing a college player article?[edit]

Cameron Bairstow is an Australian playing for New Mexico. He is a virtual lock to win the Mountain West Conference Player of the Year and is also could be a consensus All-American. He's represented Australia several times in international play as well. Seems up your alley, interested? It would certainly help the College Basketball project, where there are a number of significant players without articles. Thanks for the consideration. Rikster2 (talk) 00:00, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Looking good! Rikster2 (talk) 13:19, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Maurice Harkless[edit]

As a third-generation Puerto Rican, Harkless is incapable of directly requesting the Puerto Rican citizenship document without residing in PR for a year. In other words, politically he is not Puerto Rican. "Puerto Rican-American", which is actually the proper spelling, is generally used when referring to second-generation people. Due to citizenship being a hotopic surrounding the status issue, I decided to include the distinctions between "political" and "FIBA" citizenship, which is meant to be a solomonic solution that prevents future edit wars once his name catches on in PR. I don't think that keeping two words really affects the article in any negative way, and it does prevent future damage. If you want to keep the statistics all over the page, I don't have any problem despite thinking that everything looks better if they were uniform. However, don't go around claiming that you are "fixing" something if you are unfamiliar with the relevant topics. (talk) 09:07, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

NBL infobox colors[edit]

I have no idea what the issue is, I am not that great on the technical front. It could be because college colors were added. I would recommend asking User:Frietjes, who added them before and is a very good coding expert. Rikster2 (talk) 13:29, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Royce White[edit]

What is going on with Royce White? He got recalled to the Kings, who were on a road trip. They seem to be dressing 12 instead of 13 on the road trip and he seems not to be travelling. His 10-day contract was up yesterday. I have not heard he was re-signed.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 05:04, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

I am guessing that they re-sign him tomorrow before their next home game based on this story. No need for them to re-sign him while the team travels and he doesn't I guess. It will give the team 2 extra days to look at him I guess.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 14:58, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Well he has played in three games for a total of 8:55 and posted one missed shot and a couple of fouls. I hope they re-sign him just so that he does not end his career with these ridiculous stats. Have you heard which way the winds are blowing on this one?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 17:53, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

I have replied to your message on my talk page. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 21:00, 18 March 2014 (UTC)


Please don't use the A11 speedy deletion tag indiscriminately. A11 applies to articles about subjects that are self-evidently made up - new words, games, concepts or stories that clearly exist only in the mind of the author (or possibly one of their friends). It doesn't apply to anything else. Yunshui  12:08, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

And again with Dant katha? It took literally seconds of Google-time to establish that the term was actually real - "looks made up to me" does not equate to "is actually made up". To paraphrase Inigo Montoya: "You keep using that tag. I do not think it means what you think it means." Yunshui  12:30, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

I prodded this instead of speedy deletion. OK? Bearian (talk) 18:47, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Jerry Stackhouse[edit]

Is Jerry Stackhouse retired from the game? Last time I saw him on NBA TV as a analyst, but haven't seen any official article on his retirement. Also, someone deleted him off the free agent list on List of 2013–14 NBA season transactions, but hasn't added him to the "Retirement" section. Do you have any information about that? --Janisterzaj (talk) 09:50, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Justin Watts[edit]

Does he meet GNG as a professional? His article was AfD'd when he was a college player - he wasn't notable for that. Just checking. Rikster2 (talk) 15:08, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Depends on the level of coverage of the league. If the Mexican league he is in doesn't get much coverage then he may not meet GNG. Unfortunately "fully professional" basketball players aren't given the benefit of the doubt for notability like in soccer. Really, no skin off my nose, I am pretty cynical about notability standards - they are very inconsistent. I'm just really familiar with the Watts case since he played for my Alma mater.

Speedy deletion contested: Point View Primary School[edit]

Hello DaHuzyBru, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of Point View Primary School, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A7 doesn't apply to educational institutions. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Smtchahal (talk) 08:36, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanasis Antetokounmpo[edit]

It is well known and commonly known that his nickname is Greek Freak 2. Can you please tell me why you are removing those edits?Bluesangrel (talk) 03:33, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

It is well known, and that it is "silly" is your personal opinion. Also the reference given is not meant as an exact mention of the nickname, but a reference to it, since you removed it, it was added as a way in good faith to appease that. But you continue to say that edit was false. As you point out one single grammatical change that is necessary in writing the text, to discredit it, even though it does not. So it should not be in the heading? Then it can be under personal info then. If you have not noticed, many of the NBA players and D-League players have them listed, something you indeed should have noticed since you say that you mostly edit those player profiles.Bluesangrel (talk) 05:07, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
I did provide a source for it. You simply decided yourself that source was no good. Anyway, the NBA D-League itself refers to him as Greek Freak 2 in games, during broadcasts, in numerous videos on YouTube, etc. Do you consider NBA D League a source or not? We are not really here to debate the legitimacy of sources as individuals such as yourself see it fit one way or another personally in your own opinion. Just to explain it to you, Giannis has been called Greek Freak for a long time, before he was even in NBA or USA, and his brother was too. This was in Greece. And they were called the Greek Freaks in Greece, before NBA or USA. And called Greek Freak nation, Greek Freaks, Greek Freak brothers. So yes, Thanasis is called Greek Freak 2. This is nothing at all made up. I really do not like how you implied I make that up. Especially when NBA D-League's official YouTube is calling him that. But I'm not going to edit it back in since you are so against it because I see on your talk page that you have been in some edit wars before, and I'm not getting into it.Bluesangrel (talk) 01:35, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I think I have a good source for you. At this site, Thanasis Antetokounmpo interview take a look at the second embedded video on that page. Starting at the 4:43 time mark of the video, through the 5:24 time mark of the video. Hopefully that helps.Bluesangrel (talk) 02:09, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Roy Hibbert[edit]

Ha don't need to start an edit war either but in all seriousness, the Big Stiff was his nickname from college. I remember watching him play at Georgetown and the announcers commonly said it - debating who would be better - the Big Stiff or Thabeet. smooth0707 (talk) 15:55, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Brad Tinsley[edit]

You can't believe everything you read on the internet. I am related to Brad and talk with him frequently and I can assure you he never signed a contract. I'm not too sure why you are pushing so much on this either but I would prefer not to have unnecessary/incorrect information on this page, thanks.

Do you know that preliminary agreements and signing a contract are different events? Just because the team decided to announce something does not mean anything.

Fisher playing position[edit] lists Fisher as both PG/SG likely since Reggie Jackson was the backup PG in Fisher's last stint with OKC. In reality, Fisher was never a true PG with Lakers under Jackson, often interchanging with Kobe in triangle offense. The other reality is there are plenty of editors that will periodically add it back since lists it. I'll leave it to you if you want to police it.—Bagumba (talk) 17:43, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

There was also the discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_National_Basketball_Association/Archive_23#Player_positions_.28again.29. Again, will leave it to your discretion if you want to try to get more consensus on it. At any rate, I don't plan on reverting Fisher.—Bagumba (talk) 17:46, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

The license is not free, so you can't upload that image. From you can see which license is okay to upload to Commom.

Aaron Afflalo[edit]

Including what player the draft pick was later used to draft IS pertinent to the player. It allows the reader to see what kind of value was traded away for the player. If Aaron Afflalo were traded for a draft pick that later became a superstar it would most certainly be of use to the reader. Remember this is an encyclopedia and as much information as possible should be included in every article. It also expands the article with additional information and links to other pages.

Thanks for keeping it I just worked really hard doing that — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lilk846 (talkcontribs) 15:15, 27 June 2014 (UTC)


If the trade was reported, it will happen, so we can put it up ahead of time! And with Jackson, he hasn't signed. Neither have many other rookies, so why do they have teams listed. So many rookies haven't signed, yet they are still reported as being on a team here. The Garrett-Novak trade did happen, so that should stay, the Haywood-Gee trade has not. I will revert the Jackson article and Novak and Garrett's articles. That trade happened. miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page) — Preceding undated comment added 14:03, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Ok, but the trade will happen, why can't we just update it now. There are a lot of people who agree to sign and they're on rosters here on Wikipedia and they haven't signed yet. miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page)

Ok, I didn't revert them. I just don't understand that if they agreed, they're going to be on the team, so we should get a headstart. Just saying. Garrett's a raptor and Novak's a Jazz. miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page)

Yes, exactly, he agreed but not signed, but he WILL sign, so we should just update it anyway, no need in waiting a day if we can just do it now. Granger is on the Heat. miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page)

It actually is pretty easy to understand, because they have agreed, they are on the team. The trade will happen, so they are on the respective teams, the NBA should do away with the moratorium period. They're will be on the teams, so they should be on Wikipedia now, plain and simple. I'm done arguing with you, you're wasting my time. And YOU'RE WRONG! miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page)

You're wrong. When they agree, they sign. As for the moratorium period, yes it should be gotten rid of, because they don't need ten days to discuss money, they should just sign, and they will. I'm done. miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page)

Bye wrong dude. miamiheat631 (talk) 9:04 9 July 2014 (UTC) (sorry if I don't know how to sign a talk page)
