Yes the (#5) Hawks handled the (#4) Magic in the first round in six games. The Hawks’ 84-81 Game 6 win iced the series on Thursday night to face the (#1) Bulls in the second round. Mike Bianchi wrote on Wednesday that the “Atlanta Birdbrains” would blow the 3-1 lead (Orlando Sentinel); to which, Josh... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: April 25, 2011 -- The Weekend in the Amazing 2011 Playoffs & Super-Elite CP3
(#5) Hawks lead (#4) Magic 3-1. This series has been painful to watch. The boredom is criminal. The Hawks have taken both games in Atlanta, starting with Jamal Crawford luckboxing heroically nailing this 3-pointer at the end of Game 3 (Basketball-Reference): Game 4 ended 88-85 (BBR) and I admit that I neglected it for lesson planning...

Catch n' Shoot: March 31, 2011 -- The 'Rip Move' Scam, Wall's Lost Mind, Inside Points/FT Prejudice

Catch n' Shoot: March 31, 2011 -- The 'Rip Move' Scam, Wall's Lost Mind, Inside Points/FT Prejudice
The “rip move” is a clever way for scorers to exploit a bad NBA rule with no purpose but to produce cheap points. I empathize with Royce Young (Daily Thunder), but a defender striking a shooter is not the same as a ball handler forcing his body through the stationary arm of a defender. The... Read more »

Donald Sterling is what’s wrong with America. The Clippers healthcare wouldn’t cover a former coach Kim Hughes’ surgery. It’s L.A., though, and completely understandable to not pay for a worker’s penis enlargement Of course, that is if a penis enlargement is the equivalent of a crucial procedure needed for a worker with prostate cancer.

Awesome artwork by Dustin Watson. His current project is doing 30 illustrations over 30 days — one player from each NBA team. Day #13, he did Carlos Boozer and posted it at “Blog-a-Bull”: Even more awesome artwork by Ziarekenya Smith. Dan Devine noted that this has been around for a while, but until his post I hadn’t...

Kevin Durant says he’s “out for the year” after spraining his ankle: To which he quick followed up: “No, just playing. It’s just a little tweak. I did it before. I’ve just got to see how it feels in the morning and hopefully I’m ready to go.” Lee Jenkins’ profile on Derrick Rose at SI... Read more »

Tim Duncan to the big kids out there: the backboard is there; use it. Bulls remain 5th in the BBR Schedule-Adjusted Offensive and Defensive Ratings after Thursday. The Heat remain at the top, followed by the Spurs, Celtics, and Lakers Of course, I love the result of Thursday’s Bulls-Heat game, but as a basketball fan,... Read more »
