      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Shaq possibly getting dealt

Recommended Posts

All over ESPN. Shaq to the Suns for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. Would be interesting to see Shaq back in the West.

Dumb move if Phoenix does it. Huge salary, doesn't fit their run and gun style, always hurt, doesn't defend. Marion is unhappy (which is beyond me because he gets his bread and butter playing with Nash) but still, they should look elsewhere.

As long as Heat have Shaq, they will be salary burdened. T-wolves fans should root for this trade to fail so the Heat are bad for a couple years and the Wolves cash in on that draft pick.

Isn't that draft pick lottery protected anyway? Or is there a time limit to where it would go unprotected?

I believe it is, if the Heat have a lottery pick they get to keep it.

This year it's lottery protected, next year if it's in the top ten it's protected, and by 2010 its unprotected. So they need to stay bad for 3 years pretty much.

The move officially went through. Marion and Banks have 20 million in salary combined, compared to Shaq's 21 mill a year. I guess Phoenix runs in transition with 4, defends with 5, and now has a half court offense. If Shaq gets healthy and pledges to play defense, he could get yet another ring. Top to bottom that is a pretty talented team.

Phoenix always lacked a big guy come playoff time so they went out and got the biggest of all. However, I remember when Shaq was with the Lakers when Del Harris was coaching and they played run and gun and they didn't do squat. It wasn't until Phil Jackson took over and the daunted "triangle" offense that Shaq really fluorished. It will be interesting to see what Phoenix does with Shaq.

well its a done deal, and the way that Nash was talking, he stated that its going to give them something they have never had (big guy in the middle) I think its going to help them when it comes to the times where they need that bigger guy in the middle. Ya they run a run and gun, but think about this, if there running the run and gun, and its not working, they have shaq in the middle to play then in and out game. I think its good fit for him, and hes going to help out the team alot.

the way marion has been playing as of late they sure didn't need him......I think this might work for Phoenix.....they don't need Shaq right now they can do fine without him but hopefully he is healthy enough with at least 20 games left to get use to the team and then they can sit him and run and gun and bring him in and start to slow things down and use the pick and rolls or in and outs with the shooters Phoenix has!!! Kinda hard to sit a 20 mill player but Shaq is useless if he isn't healthy...

Phoenix always got ousted in the playoffs because of their size. Probably would have happened this year also. Now they can bang with Utah, San Antonio, Dallas, and other top teams in the West.

Yep.... NBA titles are not won running and gunning!

I think its a good move on the Suns part especially if Shaq is healthy for the playoffs.

Also I think Miami is much better team right now because of the trade.

I agree. Phoenix got bigger and Miami got younger. I see Marion can opt out after this year. Will be interesting to see what he does. I know he didn't want to be the 3rd guy in Phoenix behing Nash and Stoudamire. Miami has Wade and thats about it.

he can opt out but if he does I am not sure if he will find someone to pay him the 17.2 ( I think) million for next year....so I would imagine he stays with Miami next year and tries to get an extension done there........
