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 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)

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 (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.

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)

@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)

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)

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)

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)

Free Agency Questions[edit]


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)

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)


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)

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.

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--- 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. 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)

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!!!!!!!!!

Kevin Garnett[edit]

News said he signed a 2 year deal to Minnesota unless i read something false, Still says he is a FA, I don't wanna add anything just in case trouble, If there is a reason he is still a FA. Please reply--Saxpod (talk) 21:32, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

According to NBA Moratorium rules, they are not actually allowed to sign with a team until Thursday July 9, 2015, so you need to wait until tomorrow to change it.

@UVABallers: Nah man, don't bother doing that. You put the effort in, that's fine. It's just normally recognised here, and may in the future be contested. I'm defs not voting to mass remove, I just personally wouldn't have done what you did :) DaHuzyBru (talk) 09:12, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

NBA Rosters Upcoming Season[edit]

Hey, so for the Free Agents of the season, now that it's been past July 9th, should we remove free agents from the team roster?

UVABallers (talk) 07:39, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

@UVABallers: Yes, I'd say so. Could probably have been removed on July 1. Go for it – be bold! DaHuzyBru (talk) 07:42, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Luis Montero[edit]

The note explained the situation. He has a non-guaranteed deal that doesn't assure a roster spot (see here) and unlike with Willie Reed and the Nets the Blazers do not show him on their roster at this time (see here). I think that until it is clear he is considered on their actual roster this should not be updated. I doubt he actually makes the squad. Rikster2 (talk) 10:03, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

@Rikster2: Why does that matter? A non-guaranteed deal means he will be there for training camp, like any other training camp signing. His signing has just come early unlike most who are signed in late September. When have we based adding teams etc to infobox based on guaranteed/non-guaranteed? Have we not always added this in the past for training camp signings? Why so suddenly different for this signing? If he is placed on the official roster, will you be fine with it being added, like you did with Aminu (Aminu btw was later removed from the roster until he was officially signed). I'm confused as to why because it "non-guaranteed", we don't add it? Sure, of course he wont make the final roster, like all players like him, he will end up in the d-league probably. This seems off to me. People are going to keep adding it with him having been "officially announced" and all. DaHuzyBru (talk) 10:41, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
We haven't previously posted current team for people who there is no evidence there is a commitment to give them a roster spot. Putting him on the roster would be sign of a commitment given that we know his deal isn't guaranteed. But whatever, I'll remove it when he gets cut in training camp. BTW, you should have removed the team for Aminu if he was removed. He was on before, when coupled with news reports he's signed it seemed reasonable to add him at the time Rikster2 (talk) 21:37, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Darius Songaila[edit]

Should Darius Songaila's retirement be on List of 2015-16 NBA season transactions or 2014-15?

(ChristWarrior50 (talk) 18:03, 12 July 2015 (UTC))

@ChristWarrior50: Nah, 2015–16 is fine. He played in 2014–15 so his retirement is related to the upcoming season. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 18:30, 12 July 2015 (UTC)


Why the hell would you change what I edited on Stephen Curry's personal information? I did was add the correct, specific times of his children this is so unfair I had everything cited! Boobaby122 (talk) 17:32, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

@Boobaby122: First off, what citations did you add? Your additions added no extra references to what was already there. Second, it is not necessary to state the exact birth dates of his children. One, it's a privacy issue, and two, it is in no way important for anyone to know that. DaHuzyBru (talk) 17:57, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
The specific applicable policy is WP:DOB. Curry is notable, but his kids are really not (sorry Riley). Sure the info is on the web, but no reason Wikipedia needs to make it available for minors with negligible notability.—Bagumba (talk) 18:13, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

You don't make any sense and you're very hypocritical! "Second, it is not necessary to state the exact birth dates of his children. One, it's a privacy issue, and two, it is in no way important for anyone to know that." OK, so why is Kobe Bryant's children's birth dates stated in his bio? why are other celebrities children's birth date stated? why are other children notable?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Boobaby122 (talkcontribs) 15:48, 14 July 2015‎ (UTC)

Javaris Crittenton[edit]

Javaris was sentenced 23 years in jail on April 29, 2015. Should I put that on the 2015-16 transactions or 2014-15? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ChristWarrior50 (talkcontribs) 18:39, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

@ChristWarrior50: I would say no. Going to jail is no retirement. He hasn't played in years, and I do not think he ever officially announced his retirement. So I don't think his retirement needs to go anywhere. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:19, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

But he will be 60 when he will be released. Are you sure? (ChristWarrior50 (talk) 19:22, 13 July 2015 (UTC)).

Yes, again, going to jail is not "retiring". He stopped playing in 2011. If you find a source that states he retired then add to a respective list. Definitely should not go in 2015–16. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:24, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Marjanovic and Jokic[edit]

Hey mate what should we do with Boban Marjanovic and Nikola Jokic? Transfers was confirmed by manager Misko Raznatovic on twitter and when he confirms something that is 100% correct. But still there is nothing on club websites. What to do?--Bozalegenda (talk) 13:54, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

@Bozalegenda: It's a similar situation to Marcus Thornton (basketball, born 1987), his agent also said he had signed with Rockets, but nothing from Rockets. I think we wait, official announcements will come, they are pretty notable signings and will get press releases. This happens every year, no different this year :) Cheers.

I always do when creating articles, but personally, I would never have started a Geron Johnson article at this point in his career so I didn't put much effort into expanding it i.e. just used the college bio. Just felt like explaining my contribution further when I saw your comment. Thanks for the message. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:33, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Is this enough?[edit]

Fox Sports and Sports Illustrated are both have both reported that Wilbekin has signed a partially guaranteed contract with the 76ers. Is that not enough, or are you still waiting on some sort of formal announcement from the team?

Please advise, because I grow weary of the edit-warring over a watch-listed article. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 22:59, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

@Dirtlawyer1: Until the 76ers announce his signing, which may not be until training camp signings are announced, then we shouldn't add it to his article. Wilbekin's reported signing is no different to any other reported signing prior to becoming official. DaHuzyBru (talk) 04:47, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Okay. I'll let you handle the endless reversions. I got tired of that game sometime ago. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 13:06, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Aye, it can be quite tedious! DaHuzyBru (talk) 13:31, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

NBPA Awards[edit]

Why can't we include Harden's NBPA MVP award in his highlights section? Heck, why can't we include the awards for the other players that won awards? Also, shouldn't there be a wiki page for the NBPA awards?

Kendrick Perkins[edit]

That was my bad changing his team. I was just about to go change it back to free agent after further research. Thank you.--RichieConant34 (talk) 16:56, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Rakeem Christmas[edit]

Hi! Rakeem Christmas has been traded to the Indiana Pacers I have added my citation Shawnsak (talk) 18:10, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

I added my Citations for it Shawnsak (talk) 18:11, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for pointing out all the facts to me as I am very new at this. Shawnsak (talk) 02:14, 25 July 2015 (UTC)


Hey, so if a player on their social media account says they're signing with a team, is that official enough to change the player's team?

UVABallers (talk) 17:46, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

@UVABallers: No. That has never been the case. Official press releases are what we go by. DaHuzyBru (talk) 18:04, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Like Andre Miller currently, player or agent announcements are kind of a gray area, which is touched upon in WP:SPORTSTRANS. I just leave it alone in these cases to save myself the headache, but others can choose to wait for the official announcement. As long as there is consensus either way, but it's not as obvious as when it's a pure anonymous sources.—Bagumba (talk) 07:34, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

It will be announced though, and most likely soon. No need to jump the gun. RealGM for example have not listed the signing and they are usually ones to list signings before official announcements. I think just wait. DaHuzyBru (talk) 08:04, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Is "agree to terms" another way of saying he "has not signed"?[3]Bagumba (talk) 08:10, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
And Fox aint much better with this on Clark.[4]. Maybe we need to start a list of unreliable sources.—Bagumba (talk) 08:10, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Well "agree to terms" is the same as "to sign", and both are used during the moratorium period. Agreeing to terms always comes before official signings, and most get confused over that or don't care to fully understand what it means when reports come out about potential signings. With that Fox ref, the whole story is from, which I would say is on the same level as Bleacher Report and SB Nation – not reliable. DaHuzyBru (talk) 09:19, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, I don't typically source from any reports, but you answered my question, I'll just wait till an official announcement, Thank you. UVABallers (talk) 03:00, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Phoenix Suns Roster[edit]


I'm not sure why the Phoenix Sun's roster isn't showing up. I'm pretty sure I added the right text, but it's not loading the template.

UVABallers (talk) 03:02, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

@UVABallers: What exactly were you trying to do with that? What you did made no logical sense. You were trying to add the Phoenix Suns roster template, to the Phoenix Suns roster template... You explained on your talk that you "don't believe that is the real one". What other one are you talking about? That is the one and only Phoenix Suns roster template on Wikipedia. If you think the content in the roster is incorrect, edit and change it. Adding {{Phoenix Suns roster}} to other articles, generates the roster without having to edit multiple rosters. Editing {{Phoenix Suns roster}}, changes all copies of it. I'm confused as to what your intention were. DaHuzyBru (talk) 06:23, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

I apologize for making a mistake. I thought it wasn't the right format, but that clearly was. My bad. UVABallers (talk) 17:23, 1 August 2015 (UTC)


stop changing my edits on Sam Dekker's page — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:14, 5 August 2015 (UTC) He signed with the Rockets in late July.

I can read all about rumors too. The Rockets have not announced this signing, it is not official. Please stop adding unofficial signings to player bios. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:19, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

the Rockets did too say it was official — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:22, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Where's the source for this??? Provide a reference for your additions. Provide where the Rockets announced it, press release, twitter? Anything. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:24, 5 August 2015 (UTC) said it was an official signing. same with Sam Dalembert and Charlie Villanueva. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:43, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

That's not official, clear and easy. Official announcement from the team or a press release (even per twitter) are what we need. Kante4 (talk) 19:47, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
HR cite Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports regarding Dalembert. Nothing says official there. And Villanueva's "official signing" is via his twitter which is not an official or reliable reference. Just wait until the Mavs announce the signings on their website. Be patient. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:49, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

According to, Villanueva is official. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:42, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

No, it's not. No announcement of him re-signing to a new deal. The rosters aren't updated as quickly as they should... Kante4 (talk) 20:44, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

he's on the roster on my computer though — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:45, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Correct, but the roster pages are updated slowly and when all is over. That still does not mean he has signed as there was no announcement. Those will come sooner than later. Kante4 (talk) 21:00, 5 August 2015 (UTC)


Hey, after the Jordan fiasco nothing is sure anymore. ;-) But in this case it's ok for me as he himself wrote that in his official blog and twitter Account. So you can go ahead and make the changes and link to his blog entry. We can change the source later on. Kante4 (talk) 16:43, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

@Kante4: Mm, yeah no doubt about the Jordan ordeal. It just seems like strong evidence since Villanueva has a pretty reliable social network such as twitter and his website. If a mavs press release is issued, perhaps we can update accordingly then to what ever date that is released (if at all). DaHuzyBru (talk) 16:48, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Edit explanation[edit]

I imagine you're following my edits and see that that you're editing more or less each one That's your right and I'm not going to claim they're perfect but I don't really understand the point of some edits such as:

-The spacing, it changes zilch to the what the article shows and I find it more convenient to read and therefore edit it, if you want to go through all my edits and change it feel free, I don't see a reason for changing that myself so I'll keep using that spacing.
-Sources: do they have to linked? No. Does it help to link them, keeping in the mind the web adress is still displayed the same way? For me, yes, especially to identify a reliable source (which sportando, the source of like 75% of Euro-based player articles, is not).
-On Semaj Christon, the problem was that in changing the format for the D-League All-Rookie team, a helpful edit, you changed it from Third to First. The external links section preconises to put the sources as references if that's possible, I do so with college bios for pros, they're not going to be updated so only serve to illustrate their former career (unlike general sources like Sports Reference, RealGM or the player's current team/league profile).

That's about it, no use rambling on more, I'd like to point at that I believe we have the same goal, creating player pages that are well organised, well sourced and well written, small differences in style shouldn't be able to change that. --ArmstrongJulian (talk) 18:49, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

@ArmstrongJulian: Ay look, I guess my style of editing is different from yours, and that's fine. I am very adaptable and I will be mindful in the future when coming across your contributions. Your college additions etc are very good and I'm definitely not against you. We are, like you say, striving for the same goal. In regards to the third → first mistake I made: yes, I am ware I messed up there. But again, college is typically styled as "third-team ..." while d-league is styled "... Third Team". All good though, not overly fussed. I like to keep good rapport with my fellow editors. Happy editing! DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:12, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Appreciate the answer, I didn't want to create an argument but had a problem in the past with another editor who was of the "my way or the high way" school of thought and never explained his edits, I can understand that's not the case with you. I'm definitely not an expert on the college game, coming from Europe it's quite strange to me even hough I understand most of it from habit by now. If you see I made a mistake (certainly happens) definitely correct me. --ArmstrongJulian (talk) 21:56, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Image for Dakari Johnson[edit]

Hey, so I was working on adding an image to the 2015–16 Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team, I was adding the images for departures, but I didn't see an image of Dakari Johnson with Kentucky, is there any images of him with Kentucky, which can be used.

UVABallers (talk) 21:47, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

@UVABallers: There are some pictures available on Wiki Commons, see here. DaHuzyBru (talk) 02:47, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much! UVABallers (talk) 15:43, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Tai Wesley[edit]

Hi. Admittedly his Samoan connection is tenuous - I got the idea from the bio of his brother, Maikeli Wesley; the infobox says that he has Fijian/Samoan nationality. But now that I think of it, that may not mean ancestry - he may have it by naturalization. Need to check. David Cannon (talk) 12:11, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

I see you just reverted my edit, which I mistakenly put on your user page instead of your talk page. I apologise for doing so. I was asleep at the wheel at 1am and it was an honest mistake. David Cannon (talk) 14:06, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Edit conflict – yeah no worries. Look, Wesley's situation is tricky. He is American with Fijian and Guamian connections; people get confused over his allegiances. His father is Fijian, not Samoan, but maybe past ancestry has Samoan connections (the Pacific Islanders have many ancestral similarities and cross overs). In terms of adding cats, unless they are immediate generational, I don't they need to be added. For example, Matthew Dellavedova is considered sixth generation Italian, and myself and another user argued the respective cat addition was unnecessary [5]. I personally feel the same here with Wesley's possible Samoan connection. DaHuzyBru (talk) 14:13, 10 August 2015 (UTC) access?[edit]

Do you have access to the detailed career stats for players on If so, could you please make sure the infobox on the Anthony Anderson article is correct? Some sources say that this player has played in Poland, Iran, and Venezuela, but I cannot find any details on the Internet. TempleM (talk) 15:56, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

@TempleM: I do have access yes, but you can also find his Polish stats at He did not, however, play for Trotamundos de Carabobo of Venezuela despite there being some deal his supposedly signed on Feb 1 2010. Looks like they only tested him and he later returned to Manchester for a February 20 game. Hope this helps. DaHuzyBru (talk) 17:16, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
@DaHuzyBru: Ok, thank you for replying. If USBasket has Anderson's seasonal statistics in Qatar and with Manchester/Saint John while they were in the ABA and PBL, could you add them to the article as well? TempleM (talk) 19:06, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately Qatar basketball does not have the best coverage on Eurobasket. While games are recorded, box scores are not so there are no available stats for him. There are stats for his early Manchester days, I might add them later. DaHuzyBru (talk) 23:50, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Multiple college in infobox[edit]

Saw your change to add <br> to Hawkins. Per WP:LISTGAPS, it should use bullets (even if 99.9% don't yet). The college field for basketball infobox handles it (not all others do). Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 00:32, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough, but they do the same thing. I've been using <br> forever, should I start using bullets from now on? DaHuzyBru (talk) 00:55, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
They look the same, but they don't sound the same for those that can't see. Bullets, bang bang.—Bagumba (talk) 00:58, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Bang bang it is then! DaHuzyBru (talk) 01:02, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Raptors 905[edit]

Regarding the Raptors 905 roster, I'm confused, do we add the team info boxes now? If it's just rights, why would it be in the roster?

VCBallers (talk) 03:13, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

@VCBallers: No. It was a mini draft so that the new team can have some players in the bank for the future, much like the Delaware 87ers did in 2013. They hold these players' rights, but they do not have a playing roster yet. Most of the players they selected already have a team for 2015–16. Their official roster wont be announced until early November. The user who added these players to the roster has jumped the gun, but I have left them in the roster because the user has so far created four or five roster templates that I have redirected to the most recent one. Just leave those players as is, and when Raptors 905 release their training camp roster in November, we can update it then. DaHuzyBru (talk) 03:17, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Alright, Thank you so much for clearing that up! VCBallers (talk) 04:59, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

How to edit the Sydney Kings Roster[edit]

Hello, I have a question regarding the Sydney King's roster, whenever I've seen their website update their numbers, I try to update the roster on the page, but I don't know how to.

Thank you, VCBallers (talk) 01:13, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

@VCBallers: See here for all the team rosters. DaHuzyBru (talk) 04:28, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much! VCBallers (talk) 04:48, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

@VCBallers: You seem to be editing Kings related stuff, do you follow the team? And also, just with when adding numbers to rosters, adjust the number and move the player to correct number order so there is consistency. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 04:56, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
