Your request for Autopatrolled[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi DaHuzyBru, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the autopatrolled right to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! kelapstick(bainuu) 14:17, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

@Kelapstick: Much appreciated! DaHuzyBru (talk) 15:19, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Durant height[edit]

Hey again. You know what you should do? You should put one of those message that you can only see while editing on the KD page saying don't change his height. That way nobody will change it. I don't know how but I am sure you do. While I'm here, I would myself like to thank you for what you do here. I know this isn't really worth saying but I go to that page every day, so thanks for that. DangerousJXD (talk) 00:07, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

@DangerousJXD: No worries, I appreciate it. In terms of Durant's height, there haven't been too many edits to his height recently (other than yourself!) so it's not imperative to add a hidden note, but because you have requested it, I shall. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 03:23, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Hey, DaHuzy, saw your edit. Are you aware that you can link things on Wikipedia (and maybe even off Wikipedia, I don't recall about the latter) in your edit summaries? - Bossanoven (talk) 07:20, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Bossanoven – I am aware of this, yes. I link WP:OVERLINK for example regularly. Why do you ask? DaHuzyBru (talk) 08:28, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
It's nothing too important, it's just that it seems that you make myriad edits with edit summaries containing urls and such without properly linking. It would be more helpful is all I'm saying. - Bossanoven (talk) 08:52, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Hm, ok thanks but, there's nothing wrong with that and I find it to be much simpler when I want to quickly link something. Linking a url makes it clear to see what you are referring to and it's simple to drag over it, right click and "Go to [url]". Thanks for the concern, but I've done that for while now and I'm not planning on changing that. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 08:58, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

You can't right click on a Mac. :) - Bossanoven (talk) 09:02, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Jimmy Butler[edit]

Hello!!! OK so, some body put one of them request image template at the Whiteside page so I thought I'd do the same for J. Butler. But now there is a picture? Who put it there? Maybe I'm blind because there was no image just a few days ago when I was at that page and I can't see anyone adding a pic in the edit history. I thought it might have been you so I was going to thank you but I don't know whether it was. Also what a crummy picture. Well at least there is a picture. -DangerousJXD (talk) 05:51, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@DangerousJXD: Jimmy Butler has had this average looking picture for a while now. However, nearly every week, people attempt to add a new image that nearly always gets deleted off Wiki commons because they are either copyrighted or the user hasn't uploaded it correctly i.e. hasn't provided the correct information on legality. If you see here, this user has just now added this image claiming it to be his own work. This will likely be removed from commons in the coming days as that if definitely not their work. I always end up reverting back to the old average image once the failed attempts are deleted. Unless someone can upload a new image correctly, the "crummy" picture is going to Butler's only image that can be used. DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:59, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
That Butler pic can be seen here. It's not a free image. DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:04, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Why can't that image be used? Copyright? -DangerousJXD (talk) 07:06, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
The point of this is that the user claimed it to be his own work when it is clearly not. I'm not an expert on uploading images, I too have tried in the past and failed. All I know is that Flickr is the best place to find free images, but even here it's difficult as lots of them are copyright protected i.e. this image is not free because the owner/uploader has marked it as "All rights reserved". Whereas, if you can find an image like this one that is marked with "Some rights reserved", it can be distributed and used by others like Wikipedia. Wikipedia:Upload/Flickr is useful to determine what can and can't be uploaded. DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:16, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
How about this?: [1]

Someone can crop it and done right? -DangerousJXD (talk) 07:43, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes, per this. Nando de Colo already has that image. DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:49, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Cool[edit]

Cool that you put that Tony Parker international picture in the article in the international section. I should have thought of doing that! -DangerousJXD (talk) 23:56, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@DangerousJXD: Guess I don't like images going to waste :P DaHuzyBru (talk) 05:27, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

(I think this is the appropriate Barnstar) You seem to do a lot of things that I think need thanking! So I've decided to save some time and just give you a Barnstar! DangerousJXD (talk) 22:07, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Bulleen Boomers[edit]

Kyrie Irving's article mentions that his did played for Bulleen Boomers in Australia, except that article redirects to the women's team, Melbourne Boomers. Is the men's team part of the same organization as the women's? I'm wondering if one of those articles need to be expanded, a separate men's article is needed, or should it just not be linked at all. Since these types of sports organizations don't exist in the U.S, I'm probably missing something at http://www.foxsportspulse.com/assoc_page.cgi?c=1-4600-0-0-0&sID=56643Bagumba (talk) 05:36, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

@Bagumba: Yeah, nah, the Melbourne Boomers (formerly Bulleen Boomers) are a separate Women's NBL team that has nothing to do with the second division Bulleen Boomers that play in the Big V (both men's and women's). Drederick Irving played for the Boomers when they were part of the South East Australian Basketball League in the 90s. So I think what's easiest is to just remove the link because yes, that is misleading linking to a separate women's team. If a new Bulleen Boomers article was to be created, it would need to be something like Bulleen Boomers (Big V) as to distinguish it, but I'm not going to start that – not many Aussie second division teams have articles.

Giants stadium[edit]

It's been wrong for many years but never changed. The official Giants website has now been changed, and so has the Giants Wiki page and the SBL Wiki page. Niels Hansen was the original designer and architect of the stadium, and it's a common German and Danish name. [User:Lukosius|Lukosius]] (talk) 20:16, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Deron Williams[edit]

My bad about Deron Williams weight. Sorry. Jmatni (talk)

@Jmatni: No worries! DaHuzyBru (talk) 00:49, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey but you do know Deron Williams was actually called the Coach Killer. Jmatni (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 00:57, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@Jmatni: It is unnecessary, fabricated information which is WP:UNSOURCED and WP:POV. It definitely does not warrant a separate section. DaHuzyBru (talk) 01:01, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry I'm new to this. I only edit sports players. Jmatni (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 01:04, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@Jmatni: That is why I put that welcome information on your talk page. The stuff you removed from your talk page has helpful links for new users with editing on Wikipedia. Please consider having a look at these links. DaHuzyBru (talk) 01:06, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

K thx man I'll try to go over with it. Jmatni (talk) You a BKN fan? Jmatni (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 05:09, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@Jmatni: I am – just not as much now since Garnett departed. I'm an NBA fan foremost. DaHuzyBru (talk) 05:13, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
@Jmatni: See your talk page. DaHuzyBru (talk) 05:47, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Why do you need those long dashes? What's the difference? Jmatni (talk) Jmatni (talk) 18:19, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

They are the dashes more commonly used on Wikipedia and are used for season pages and team season pages e.g. 2014–15 Brooklyn Nets season and 2014–15 NBA season, instead of 2014-15 Brooklyn Nets season and 2014-15 NBA season. 18:47, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Jimmy Butler[edit]

Why do you have to delete what I added? It was already announced look it up. Even if it wasn't "officially" announced it was just going to happen later today. I just don't think there any need to delete the content I added.

@Rocker1096: It has not been officially announced by the NBA, so it should not be listed yet. Just be patient. Like you said, it will be announced very soon. When there is something listed here, then we can add it. DaHuzyBru (talk) 12:59, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Delon Wright[edit]

Why'd you think of deleting the fact that I put on Delon's college career? Jmatni (talk) Jmatni (talk) 15:22, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

@Jmatni: Because you did not provide a source. But I checked his college bio which backed it up. Always reference information you add articles. DaHuzyBru (talk) 17:42, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Luke Martin Change[edit]

Hello, why did you delete information regarding the Luke Martin, Lindt Cafe Siege thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Titaniumman23 (talkcontribs) 09:14, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

@Titaniumman23: Hello. I did not delete any information. I simplified it per the references that was provided, and filled out said reference. It was poorly worded. The basic information is there; no more needs to be added until something definitive is released regarding penalties. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 09:19, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
I have just added a tad more regarding erratic driving and bail. DaHuzyBru (talk) 09:24, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Kevin Love[edit]

I have made Kevin Love a free agent, I did this because he opt out, He could return, But when you opt out/get cut from your contract, you are a free agent. I made this to make sure if this is okay? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saxpod (talkcontribs) 16:09, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

@Saxpod: You are correct about him opting out and becoming a free agent. However, he is not a free agent until July 1 when free agency starts. DaHuzyBru (talk) 16:12, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
@Saxpod See this for detail on free agency. DaHuzyBru (talk) 16:15, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, I also apologize for the lebron james article if you seen it, I am not on this site often and i am inexperienced--Saxpod (talk) 16:16, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

I know Lebron hasn't got his contract yet, but he is still is a cavalier and he is not leaving--Saxpod (talk) 20:21, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Free Agency Questions[edit]

Hello,

When a player is a Free Agent do you remove him from the roster and do you also have the another team thread as Free Agent?

Thank you, UVABallers

UVABallers (talk) 04:25, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

@UVABallers: There is no convention on this and I personally do not worry about the rosters. So do what you think is best :) DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:01, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Is DeAndre Jordan a Free Agent? I changed him to Free Agent, and someone changed him back saying it was vandalism? UVABallers (talk) 18:36, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

@UVABallers: He sure is. I have linked the NBA.com free agency tracker in the edit summary. DaHuzyBru (talk) 18:40, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

NBA Summer League Rosters[edit]

Do you know the template for the NBA Summer League Rosters? I was planning on adding that to the new season for summer league section for the teams.

UVABallers (talk) 22:12, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Could you go the Boston Celtics 2015-2016 season, I added the Summer League Roster and wanted to see if that was good.

UVABallers (talk) 06:40, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Yep, looks fine. DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:44, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Basketball[edit]

Hey, shouldn't we add when a player has agreed to sign in the article? Not the infobox and lead of course, but a seperate section (see my revert on Aminu). Makes it easier to watch the page in my mind. Kante4 (talk) 12:36, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Look, either way is fine I guess. I left a similar doing on Tyson Chandler, so all good. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 12:38, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Good. ;) Kante4 (talk) 13:24, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

List of 2014–15 NBA season transactions[edit]

On the retirement section, I deleted what was in the notes column because the notes column should be used for why the player retire, or what the player is going to do after he made the announcement. I thought the pictures was a bad idea. Just my opinion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.41.219.155 (talk) 02:20, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Corey Brewer lead sentence[edit]

DHB, is Brewer really notable for being a free agent, or because he has played in the NBA for the last 8 years: [2]? Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:48, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Lamarcus Aldridge and Spurs[edit]

You reverted my edit on Lamarcus' wikipedia page because his deal with the Spurs isnt official yet. Uhh, just search up Lamarcus Aldridge on Google and it will become very obvious hes signing with the Spurs. Can you change it back plz :) Sources--- http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/13197710/free-agent-lamarcus-aldridge-says-sign-san-antonio-spurs http://www.sbnation.com/2015/7/4/8622117/lamarcus-aldridge-san-antonio-spurs-nba-free-agency-2015 http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/index.ssf/2015/07/lamarcus_aldridge_makes_free_agent_decision.html Almighty Chief Keef Sosa (talk) 17:14, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

@Almighty Chief Keef Sosa: They are just reports. He has reportedly agreed to the sign with the Spurs. He can not officially sign with them until July 9 when the NBA moratorium ends. When his signing is listed here, we can update it. Wikipedia is not a rumor mill, we update based off official sources i.e. NBA.com. DaHuzyBru (talk) 17:18, 4 July 2015 (UTC)


Hi! Since a paragraph about this is already created I want to ask. Free agents can sign from July 8, but why you changed it back to July 9? Is it because of time zone differences? Or there are other reasons? Cheers. – Sabbatino (talk) 10:11, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

@Sabbatino: Nah, it's 12:00 am EST on July 9 (East Coast USA time). I just messed up early. I saw the moratorium went from July 1 to July 8, so I went with July 8 until I realised July 9 was the first day of signings. DaHuzyBru (talk) 10:18, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Biržų 1686 Jubiliejinis Alus (9834933134).jpg Thanks. Here, have a Lithuanian beer! – Sabbatino (talk) 10:34, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
And I always thought July 8 is the first day of signings... Until this message. Thanks for clearing that for me. Looks like I'll have to change all my editing reasons from July 8 to July 9 when I edit some teams' rosters. Thanks again. Cheers. – Sabbatino (talk) 10:34, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Hey, no worries! I was a little confused at first myself. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 10:37, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Cleveland Cavaliers[edit]

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has gone way over the salary cap, and I read that he will have to pay a hefty luxury tax, I was wondering if you know what else will happen in that regards?

Hardcoreromancatholic (talk) 05:34, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

@Hardcoreromancatholic: Unfortunately I do not. And to be honest, I don't really care. I don't delve into that side of the NBA, in terms of money. For me, that is not what is important, and a lot of the time, it's just speculation by media outlets, which I also do not pay too much attention to. DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:01, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Amen to that. I totally agree with you!!!!!!!!!
