Crossover Porn: D-Rose Punks the Celts Better in Slow-Mo & HD (Video)
If you’re unaware of NBA.com’s “Phantom” series, it’s amazing and I highly suggest going through the videos on their YouTube page. They’re all beautiful. The Association put together a gorgeous piece of Derrick Rose making Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Nenad Krstic, and Glen Davis look silly on crossovers last week. If you have a slow... Read more »

Bulls Beatdown Showed How They're Just Better Than the Celtics

Bulls Beatdown Showed How They're Just Better Than the Celtics
The #1 Bulls blew out the #2 Celtics 97-81 with defense, rebounding, and all-around efficient shooting. The matchup between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls (58-20) and Celtics (54-24), proved one thing over all else to me: the Cs are too damn small to beat the Bulls. “They ran their offense...

The Bucks win over the Heat puts the Bulls’ magic number at one for a top-two seed. MIA can only max out at 58 wins and the Bulls own the tiebreaker, having swept the 3-game season series. The magic number remains at three to clinch the East over the Celtics and MIA going into Thursday’s... Read more »

Despite No Noah, Shaky Defense, Bulls Maintain 2.5 Game Conference Lead

Bulls Mathematical Favorites to Win Championship

Bulls Mathematical Favorites to Win Championship
All studies show the best indicator of a team’s playoff success isn’t their record in close games, but a team’s ability to blow other teams out while avoiding getting blow out — moreso than beating elite teams. People who say otherwise are actively lying to you. That said, the Bulls (53-19) are continuing to spank... Read more »

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. But “open shots are better than other shots.” Sandy Weil proved it. That said, Rajon Rondo holds onto the ball too fucking long. 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. Maybe, I hate the Knicks more than I love the Bulls, but a bit less than I love the Celtics. Oh well, I... Read more »
