    You have hell of the fellows up there in your Wallmart I guess you probably just forgot how prime Shaq looked like, how mobile he was for his size, which made him unstoppable. He was freak of nature. Instead browsing stats, you better check some videos on youtube to refresh your memory, it's worth a time

    You get a lot of Hall of Fame centers at your Walmart? Must be a nice neighborhood.

    Agree with your statement, it's easy to say once performance of team is checked.

    I haven't been on IBN for a couple of years. Are there still a lot of people using the forum? Is there any interest in having a prediction game for the Olympics? I am happy to host it if there is. I already updated the spreadsheet. So many fewer games than the WC but a lot of hard ones to predict. Should make for an interesting game.

    I haven't been on the forum for a while as well, but if there is a prediction game like the last Olympics I would like to participate to see if I can do as well as 5 years ago

    I think there are a lot of posters lurking in the shadows and likely they'll appear during the olympics, just like you and me

    Glad to know there is some interest in the prediction game! Anyone know of any Olympic basketball fantasy games out there? I used to play the Lithuanian one on Krepsinis but I think it has been discontinued.

    It would be great actually, christodoulou. I'll move these to a separate thread.

    That would be great. I used to host a prediction game for FIBA Asia 2015 but I haven't actually participated in any prediction game besides that one. I haven't seen a lot of Asian IBNers participating in such games for world-level tournaments, so maybe I can invite my fellowmen from the PBA forums to join this one you will be hosting?

    Yes, please invite your friends to join! I'll start the prediction game thread soon.
