Summer League MVPs[edit]

Hi. I see you have recently been adding NBA Summer League MVPs to player infoboxes. I'd like to bring to your attention the discussion that went on about this matter. It came to the conclusion that these awards were not note worthy enough to add to infoboxes. Please see here for this discussion. Thank you. DaHuzyBru (talk) 13:20, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Sportsman of the Year in infoboxes[edit]

There is a discussion related to some of your recent edits at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_National_Basketball_Association#Sportsman_of_the_Year_in_infoboxes that you are invited to join. Thanks!—Bagumba (talk) 01:34, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Ralph Sampson[edit]

I understand that you consolidated the national player of the year awards per discussion, but aren't the conference (ACC) Player of the Year awards quite a different matter, or has there been a discussion to remove those as well?Hoops gza (talk) 23:57, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

I was told when there were much bigger accomplishments like consensus national player of the year there was no need to add stuff like that but if someone won it just by itself it could be left on. What do you think it should be? (T23tran (talk) 00:00, 5 February 2014 (UTC))

Do you remember where you got this from? Consensus has usually been that conference player of the year, esp ACC, is significant to include.—Bagumba (talk) 22:09, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I checked the discussion at the Wikiproject NBA and had not previously known about a "five award limit" to the infoboxes that we are trying to maintain. I guess we don't have much of a hard and fast policy on this stuff. Your editing seems fine.Hoops gza (talk) 00:36, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Conference POY is significant. Please stop removing them unless specific consensus to do so is reached. Same with first team All-Conference. Rikster2 (talk) 01:22, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Franchise leading scorers[edit]

Removing awards from infoboxes[edit]

Glad you have been willing to contribute to Wikipedia. You may have missed it, but there is a set of conventions that are generally followed for NBA bios and the infobox at Wikipedia:WikiProject_National_Basketball_Association/Article_guidelines. Please take a look and ask questions if needed. Your recent edit to Anthony Davis was reverted by another editor, as it seems 1) it is a significant award, and 2) the player's infobox does not have the 5+ pro highlights where we would typically start trimming anyways. Also, your edit reverted—without an edit summary—a change you already tried earlier to remove the freshman award. Please be aware that edit warring is discouraged and using the talk pages for discussion is preferred when there are differences in opinion. Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 22:14, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

NBA club history and WP:OVERLINK[edit]

Hi - I have noticed you've been wiki linking many unlinked clubs in NBA player infoboxes. Please understand that the wiki guideline around linking calls for the same item appearing multiple times in a list (like club history) to only be linked the first time it appears per WP:OVERLINK. A somewhat related note is that many editors don't link the first club if the player was drafted by that club (so the club gets linked in the draft_team field). I am personally not hard ove about that since it's technically not the same list, but that's why many first clubs are not linked. Please do not add duplicative wiki links to the club history, the unlinked clubs are intentional. Thanks. Rikster2 (talk) 23:49, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Stop removing notable career achievements from infoboxes[edit]

Stop What the heck are you doing? You are removing notable college achievements from infoboxes, and if you don't stop immediately I am going to have you blocked for disruptive editing. Jrcla2 (talk) 13:25, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Changes to order of highlights[edit]

While there could be some improvements in the order of highlights in the infobox in some articles, I would like to understand the rationale of this edit to Shane Battier. Without explanation in an edit summary, or in a discussion thread, it seems equally as random and unnecessary. Please discuss at WT:NBA so consensus can be reached and incorporated into Wikipedia:WikiProject_National_Basketball_Association/Article_guidelines#College_and_high_school_highlights. Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 21:04, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Links to sections[edit]

If you want to link to a section in a page, see WP:ANCHOR.

silly copyright violation.[edit]

so you took the image File:Russell Westbrook Jr.jpg on May 17th, 2011 ? That is not even slightly convincing. This is a professional Getty images photo from 2008 as can be seen here.

Second reminder: Use the preview button[edit]

Another reminder to please use preview button when editing, and avoid multiple tiny, consecutive edits to the same article. Look at the edit history of Stephen Curry (basketball); you are overflowing it with edits that could be better consolidated into fewer edits. Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 08:55, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates, or other materials from Wikipedia, as you did at Kyrie Irving, you may be blocked from editing.

Got it! Sorry, I'll remember next time and I'm done with my editing for a while now anyways. Once again, sorry (T23tran (talk) 06:51, 12 May 2014 (UTC))

Information icon Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles, as you did in Kyrie Irving. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Per WP:SURNAME, subsequent references to the subject of a biography are through their surname e.g. Irving, not Kyrie.Bagumba (talk) 06:55, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Got it, I'll change it right now (T23tran (talk) 07:03, 12 May 2014 (UTC))

Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. —Bagumba (talk) 08:20, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.  —Bagumba (talk) 19:55, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Have you still not taken the hint about the preview button? Why is it that you continually edit an article 10 times when that could have been condensed into one or two edits if you used preview instead (and/or just take your time with your edits)? The edit history of Damian Lillard, for example, is clustered and clogged up with numerous edits from you. It's disruptive and difficult to find old versions. I know they are mostly constructive edits, but c'mon, you said yourself that you'd "remember next time" yet you continue to do it, so I'm reminding you again! DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:02, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry man. I don't know how it happened. I would see grammatical errors one time and finish and then see spelling errors the next. and I do get impatient at times as well. Last time. Promise. (T23tran (talk) 07:10, 16 May 2014 (UTC))

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Chris Paul. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. —Bagumba (talk) 15:15, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Kawhi Leonard[edit]

Many sources say his birthplace is Riverside, but this and this say Los Angeles. Riverside is where he grew up hence hometown. DaHuzyBru (talk) 13:25, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Sorry but that's wrong. Search Kawhi Leonard Moreno Valley. That's his place of birth and Riverside is where he grew up. Trust me, he's my favorite player. (T23tran (talk) 13:29, 13 June 2014 (UTC))
What? So because he's your favourite player, that gives you complete knowledge on him?? According to you, beside my source, nothing else says Los Angeles. Well ESPN and Basketball-Reference – two of the most notable and credible sources for NBA news, stats etc – say Los Angeles. I think you are incorrect and I reckon he was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Riverside hence his college bio and many others stating Riverside as "hometown". DaHuzyBru (talk) 13:35, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Also, can you provide me with a source where it states he was born in Moreno Valley (not hometown, actually says born/birthplace)? I can't find anything. Sources are either saying Riverside or Los Angeles i.e. more here and here for Los Angeles. DaHuzyBru (talk) 13:49, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Wow, ESPN really does say that. All I know is Kawhi holds his camp in Moreno Valley and lived there before he went to MLK. And no actual articles say he was born in LA but a couple have it listed. No big deal, I guess, I'll change it back to LA and just put Moreno Valley in his bio. (T23tran (talk) 13:56, 13 June 2014 (UTC))

Kind reminder: use preview[edit]

Your 17 edits in 20 minutes on Stephen Curry (basketball)‎‎ is needlessly clogging the page history, and continues after multiple pledges from you to use the preview button. Disregarding your fellow editors is a breach of Wiki etiquette. This is simple enough to resolve on your part without the need for deterrents. Regards.—Bagumba (talk) 21:35, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
