For one, he would gladly give Rose greater control on the floor, let him be more of a decision maker and try... 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 »

Catch n' Shoot: March 2, 2011 -- Sam Smith Hates Basketball, Spurs D Isn't Bad, FT+, Bissinger's Still Racist
Tumblr site of the week: Sad Perk: This was my second favorite Perk meme so far. I’m getting to the point where Sam Smith has no credibility in my mind.

As he usually does, Neil Payne has the answer. The question: who are the best players to ever be traded midseason? Knicks still can’t guard anyone. #imjustsayin .bbpBox40072551409393660 {background:url(http://a3.twimg.com/profile_background_images/72478850/nba_on_nbc.jpg) #C0DEED;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px 12px 10px 12px;margin:0;min-height:48px;color:#000;font-size:18px !important;line-height:22px;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata{display:block;width:100%;clear:both;margin-top:8px;padding-top:12px;height:40px;border-top:1px solid #fff;border-top:1px solid #e6e6e6} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author{line-height:19px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author img{float:left;margin:0 7px 0 0px;width:38px;height:38px} p.bbpTweet a:hover{text-decoration:underline}p.bbpTweet span.timestamp{font-size:12px;display:block} Not...
