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

Catch n' Shoot: March 13, 2011 -- Contender Narratives, Un-valuing Offensive Rebounds, Russell Westbrook's Historical Young Career, the Bynum Factor
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 »

Catch n' Shoot: February 27, 2011 -- Blake and Love's Record-Setting Double-Doubles, Lockout Looming, and Kendrick Sidelined

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 »

The rest of the finalists are very ‘meh.’ I have a personal nostalgic love for finalist Chris Mullin... Read more »
