Catch n' Shoot: March 24, 2011 -- The Truth Needs the Ball, Aldridge Deserves More Love, AAU Needs to Poof!, Jimmer Needs a Guru
“That pass is, uh — is uhhhh…” (h/t: Matt McHale): The Celtics’ shot selection can look very weird on a chart. It can make you wonder how in hell they win.

Blake Griffin damn-near Timofey’d Marcin Gortat on Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, it didn’t count, as he was called for a charging foul and was T’d up for his reaction to the call. And, expectedly, the Staples Center Red Team lost to the Suns one day after losing to the… Cavs?: (h/t: Devin Kharpertian) After the game, Gortat... Read more »

Wednesday was Blake Griffin’s 22nd birthday and Randy Foye gave him a pretty lob on a fastbreak. Griffin gave back this alley-oop to us: This was after the 76ers (35-33) decided to get rough with The Blakedevil and Blake got feisty: “I just felt like they had let things go way too much up to that...

A great case can be made that Tom Thibodeau was the best franchise acquisition of the last offseason. The Bulls moved ahead of the Celtics in BBR’s mathematical power rankings. 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 »

Over the summer, Derrick Rose shot “at least 1,000 treys a day from a variety of angles.” Yes. The value and character of Omer Asik, a great profile by Steve Aschburner at NBA.com. Kurt Helin has Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kobe Bryant on his five-man MVP ballot. I don’t disagree with this... Read more »

Rip Hamilton would likely be a Bull right now if took Cleveland’s buyout in the Pistons-Cavs deal he sabotaged. Blake Griffin’s the eighth rookie in NBA history to amass 50 double-doubles. The Blakedevil has 22 games to hit Shaq’s 1992-93 record of 68. It’s doable. What’s uncontroversially doable is supplying amazing alley-oops like this without... Read more »

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):
