Catch n' Shoot: March 29, 2011 -- KD-RussWest Individual Clutchiness, LeBron's Most Valuable-ness, Parity's Questionable Valuable-ness

Catch n' Shoot: March 29, 2011 -- KD-RussWest Individual Clutchiness, LeBron's Most Valuable-ness, Parity's Questionable Valuable-ness
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook really don’t connect in so-called “clutch possessions.” FTR, I don’t believe in clutchiness. LeBron James is still the most productive player in the NBA this season. How you want to define “value” is a story in itself and always fully deserving of scrutiny, but LeBron’s production is almost unmatched. The... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 22, 2011 -- Sad 'Melo, Howard's MVP Case, Gay Done, Duncan Down, Larry Brown Wants to Coach (Because Quitting's Easier With a Job)
Maybe a “SadMelo” Tumblr page wouldn’t be so premature: (h/t: “Snottie Drippen”) I found it difficult to root against the Celtics on Monday. Is that weird? Yeah, I’m a terrible Bulls fan.

They’re now sitting in 4th, behind the Spurs, Lakers, and Heat. That said, why was Carlos Boozer still in the game to sprain his ankle... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: February 28, 2011 -- Sterling's Racial Ignorance Hits New Level, Buyouts, Kendrick's Joylessness
How Derrick Rose compares in this season’s matchups against the best PGs. Why is Jason Kidd included, but not Steve Nash? That was an interesting game. That Phoenix game made me realize this team was the truth. Matt McHale has the Bulls 29th in his Powerless Rankings. Clippers advertised a special offer at the L.A.... Read more »

The Bulls face the hottest basketball team at the Staples Center, who beat the Bulls at the UC, coached by a former Bulls coach, riding a nine-game winning streak at home… and it’s not the Lakers.

The Heat (30-10) went into the Staples Center to play the Clippers (13-24) and allowed 44 points in the first quarter to lose 111-105 in a game from which I could not walk away. Miami will have to go on a 42-game winning streak to close out the season in order to tie the Bulls’... Read more »
