Welcome to the game thread Pounders!

Chajamamama wrote a nice piece about the transition from lurking to joining the conversation recently. It's great and you can read the whole thing here. Here's an excerpt:

I was a lurker for a very long time. I had read the articles and game threads, thoroughly enjoying the banter (both basketball and otherwise) since I discovered PTR shortly before Manu broke his arm in 2011.

Several times I wanted to jump in and comment, but I didn't want to intrude. Finally, on March 1, 2013, for whatever reason, I made my first post. I was welcomed!!

I find it fascinating that people from all over the world get together for a couple of hours 82 times a year (during regular season) to enjoy the Spurs. And that we have the ability to go stark raving mad together during the playoffs.

Amazingly, we all get along. Well, except for one type of fan: The obnoxious "I'm always right and you're wrong" guy/gal, who is then usually advised of the "back up your statements with actual facts, remember to be civil, or be gone position" held at PTR.

Your opinions are welcome so long as you respect the fact that others might not agree with you and might wish to discuss the differences in a civil fashion. And keep off the subject line. ;)

So, I say all that to say this, "COME ON LURKERS!" break the ice and chime in!
