Catch n' Shoot: February 28, 2011 -- Sterling's Racial Ignorance Hits New Level, Buyouts, Kendrick's Joylessness
How Derrick Rose compares in this season’s matchups against the best PGs. Why is Jason Kidd included, but not Steve Nash? That was an interesting game. That Phoenix game made me realize this team was the truth. Matt McHale has the Bulls 29th in his Powerless Rankings. Clippers advertised a special offer at the L.A.... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: February 20, 2011
The 2011 Dunk Contest was fun and I posted every dunk here, but my favorite Dunk Contest dunker is still Vince Carter: ‘Melo’s not going to Jersey. He wants to be a Knick or a Bull; the Knicks are willing to take him on, but the Bulls say it’s too expensive. ‘Melo never had to... Read more »

Mixed Feelings on Deron Williams Almost Negated By Ray Allen's 2,561st Three

Mixed Feelings on Deron Williams Almost Negated By Ray Allen's 2,561st Three
After joking that D-Will pulled an MJ/Magic/LeBron by running his coach out of the job like an epic superstar does has come the real inner conflict of my honest feelings toward him.

Trade Idea: Derrick Rose for Deron Williams

Trade Idea: Derrick Rose for Deron Williams
Arguably the best or second-best point guard in the league for the arguably best-to-third-best in the league. See how stupid this game is? Pulling trades out of your ass and posting it as the title of a post to get cheap hits? Anywho, here’s Scott Carefoot’s Power Rankings at the PG position. They’re as I... Read more »
