'MVP Conversation' Study: Other Teams Win Less Without Their Stars Than Bulls Would Without Rose

'MVP Conversation' Study: Other Teams Win Less Without Their Stars Than Bulls Would Without Rose
The primary argument for proponents of Derrick Rose as the 2010-11 NBA MVP always resorts to underrating the way the Bulls are coached and generally managed. For lack of better words, it’s largely a trite “the Bulls would suck without Rose” argument. The argument isn’t without validity or value when applied across the league. But... Read more »

Dunk Porn: Best Dunks of the 2011 All-Star Game (Video)
Kobe Bryant partied like it was 1999, Amar’e Stoudemire with the putback, Blake Griffin got his first alley-oop from Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook being Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant was long, and LeBron James what he could do against every team on multiple possessions per shift on every single night (h/t: Dashiell Bennett):

Catch n' Shoot: February 20, 2011
The 2011 Dunk Contest was fun and I posted every dunk here, but my favorite Dunk Contest dunker is still Vince Carter: ‘Melo’s not going to Jersey. He wants to be a Knick or a Bull; the Knicks are willing to take him on, but the Bulls say it’s too expensive. ‘Melo never had to... Read more »

Put Boozer in the 2011 All-Star Game

Put Boozer in the 2011 All-Star Game
Despite only playing 29 games, Carlos Boozer would be a reasonable All-Star reserve. If Carlos Boozer is makes or is snubbed from the Eastern Conference roster for the 2011 All-Star Game, it wouldn’t be a basketball injustice, but he’s on my All-Star team. Of players eligible for the FG% leaderboard, Boozer is 3rd among Eastern... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: December 29, 2010
The Mavs (24-6) got it handed to them by the damn Raptors (11-20) 84-76. Most astounding is that half the Toronto squad was injured and the other half is worse than bad, so the Raptors played with an eight-man rotation. Some guy named Ed Davis dropped 17 off the bench, FFS! The Mavs were without... Read more »

Dennis Rodman for 2011 Hall of Fame Class is on Facebook. Like it! Scottie Pippen wrote an article for Bulls.com supporting his bid. Let’s get this out of the way: the MVP “conversation” doesn’t extend far past Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams. Only as far as Dwight Howard and Amar’e Stou_emire. Amar’e's team matches up...

No preview here for Monday’s Bulls-Pacers matchup. Read Matt McHale’s here. The Heat have a “reward system” to decide who runs the offense. “If Dwyane Wade grabs a defensive rebound, he has the green light to do whatever he wants offensively. If LeBron James makes a defensive stop, he controls his own game on the... Read more »

Odd, meaningless notes: Since losing to the Bulls, the Mavs have won 11 straight; since beating the crap out of the Bulls, the Magic have lost four of five including four straight; the Bulls were the fifth of the Celtics’ current nine-game winning streak; after beating the Bulls, the Knicks won six of their next...

Catch n' Shoot: December 9, 2010

Four buzzer-beaters ruled Wednesday’s NBA docket. Andrea Bargnani dropped 41 points and Amar’e Stou_emire dropped  34 and grabbed 14 boards for his sixth consecutive game with 30+ points. But Raymond Felton’s three was needed for the Knicks (14-9) to beat the CRaptors (8-14) 113-110 and win their 11th of their last 12. The Teddy Bears... Read more »
