I also thought that A, Walker was much too high.  The speed, intent,  and lack of quality with which I posted to get past that label was truly amazing, but sad..



 
Here is a list of the players associated with post counts, by the way:

0 Free Agent       
1 Colton Iverson       
2 Vitor Faverani       
3 Phil Pressey       
5 Fab Melo       
10 Shavlick Randolph       
15 MarShon Brooks       
20 Jordan Crawford       
25 Kelly Olynyk       
50 Keith Bogans       
75 Kris Humphries       
100 Gerald Wallace       
150 Courtney Lee       
200 Brad Stevens       
250 Avery Bradley       
300 Jared Sullinger       
500 Jeff Green       
750 Rajon Rondo       
1000 Bill Walton    
1500 Don Chaney    
2000 Ray Allen    
3000 Bailey Howell    
4000 Jim Loscutoff

Hmm, is Roy subtly letting us know Brandon Bass is about to be traded?

I think I am the only person on the blog currently designated as Paul Pierce. That's pretty cool.

I've been turned back into Ray Allen!  Bummer.  I really don't like this arbitrary reclassification.

If you've got a non-arbitrary way of assigning post-based member groups on a basketball message board, let us know.

But yes, the recent trade led to a reclassification, as Rondo belongs in the pantheon.  Luckily, since we're unlikely to have any Celtics stars for awhile, this shouldn't be a continuing problem.

I had thought the multi-star ranks were loosely based on a poll we did of Top 25 Celtics of all-time.  Might not be a bad time to redo the poll. 

Could do a separate one to assign the lower ranks attached to current players, but they change so fast there's probably little point.

Instead of being sarcastic, just tell me why 2000-2999 was changed from Bailey Howell to Ray Allen. My issue is not with assigning names to ranges, but why the names have to change for given ranges. Now I will never get to be Jim Luscotoff, for example. My next level is Antoine Walker 3000-3999, unless of course the names assigned change again.

When somebody new is added, that shifts things.  If it's that important to be Locsy, you can start over with a Surferdad 2.0 account.

I understand that this is important to you, but in the grand scheme of life, it's fairly trivial (and is meant to be). 

Ray Allen made more of an impact for the Celtics. He played here longer, and made more All-star games.  Thus, his rank is higher (but still relatively low, due to the way he left town).

Too much work for too little reward.  Plus, it doesn't really solve the "arbitrary" critique.  If anything, we would see a lot of modern era bias.
