History Edit

NBAWire.com was founded on January 1, 2001 by Ryan Williams and Ryan McCoy. In the beginning, in order to make the message boards appear more active than they actually were, Ryan and Ryan created many fake members. They continued to post under one fake member, t-bird, for quite a long time until the boards became more active. The messages boards began to evolve into their current form in 2003. The original format of the boards was YaBB, however in 2005 the software was updated to vBulletin format. In 2003, established members such as Paul34Pierce, TheAnswer3, KG-Kid21, T_WOLF_DAWG, Hakeem The Dream, Peachbasket, GT, afo310, Jordan-esque, Jim, talkiewalkie, Thorn, DRESPN, syxx, CosaNostra, Orange, Dr. Dunkenstein, eagleclaw, Ocho_X3 and many others began their reign on NBAWire. 2003 also saw the first rocky times, when hisnameiswang joined. This spammer and troll was banned, but managed to return several more times before finally being permanently banned in 2004. That time also saw the emergance of the poster "sportsinsider1" who managed to be a thorn to NBAwire's side being banned over thirty times and every time managing to come back with a new alias. In 2008, the NBAwire server crashed during some routine maintenance thus wiping out all of the site's old posts and members.

Future Edit

In October 2005, NBAwire upgraded it's software from YaBB to vBulletin, however this was only the tip of the iceberg. With the ownership revitalizing their interest in the website, the future is looking bright. The forums will offer many new features which will make the experience at NBAwire more enjoyable. The website will also undergo quite a few changes, but details as of yet have not been released.
