Catch n' Shoot: March 9, 2011 -- Bulls Favored to Win East, Heat Lose Fifth Straight, Brad Miller's Disaster Night, NBPA Argument With Owners' Data
Horace Grant reminisces 1991. Bulls are 2:1 favorites to win the East, according to Hollinger’s postseason odds on Wednesday morning, with the Celtics at 3:1. He also has the Bulls and Lakers a little worse than 4:1 to win it all, with the Lakers at 19.6% and the Bulls at 18.5%. Matt Olsen offered up... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 8, 2011 -- Winning Rose, Misty-Eyed Heatles, Clutchiness, SVG on 'Stern der Führer'
Derrick Rose, winning: True Shooting Percentage carries a very low margin of error. Of course, no metric is without error, but I’m not sure any commonly accepted have a wider margin of error than human eyes and brains. Not saying it’s the argument, but Rose’s .TS% ranked in the 70s among qualified leaders and in... Read more »

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 »

Midseason NBA Power Rankings Galore!!!

Midseason NBA Power Rankings Galore!!!
I haven’t updated the power rankings in a while and seeing as the media has conveniently decided the middle of this week to be the “midseason,” let’s rank the teams, give my All-Star picks, and rank for awards…. In one post! Hint: The MVP so far is more obvious than you’d enjoy admitting. Team Power... Read more »

Bulls Beat Heat in Dramatic Fashion

Bulls Beat Heat in Dramatic Fashion
The Bulls 99-96 win against the Heat came with a lot of drama and a UC crowd that got the show it begged for — minus LeBron. Usually strong defense is synonymous with physicality. Not so with the Heat. In a game of loose balls, the Bulls (27-13) dominated while the Heat (30-12) constantly threatened... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: January 4, 2010
150 players made the All-NBA Teams in the 1990s. I got 149 of them. Can you beat my score? The only player I missed was Anthony Mason, so there’s one for you…. Yes, Anthony Mason. One of my favorite moments in NBA on NBC history was this Christmas Day game between the Bulls and Knicks,... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: December 13, 2010
No preview here for Monday’s Bulls-Pacers matchup. Read Matt McHale’s here. The Heat have a “reward system” to decide who runs the offense. “If Dwyane Wade grabs a defensive rebound, he has the green light to do whatever he wants offensively. If LeBron James makes a defensive stop, he controls his own game on the... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: November 29, 2010
Sunday: The Spurs (14-2) impressively beat the Hornets (12-4) in Nawlins, 109-95. San Antonio turned a 17-point deficit into a 17-point lead in the second half. It’s the most anyone has scored against Nawlins so far this season. I’m inching toward the Celtics and Spurs being #2 and #2A in my mental power rankings. post-game... Read more »

Phil-Jack Believes Erik Spoelstra Will Be Spending More Time With Stan Van Gundy's Family Soon
job insecurity imo Phil Jackson expects Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra will be replaced on the bench by current-GM Pat Riley, as Riley replaced then-Coach Stan Van Gundy when the team brought in Shaq, he said on “The Waddle and Silvy Show” at ESPN 1000: “The scenario that sits kind of behind the scene, is...
