Catch n' Shoot: April 25, 2011 -- The Weekend in the Amazing 2011 Playoffs & Super-Elite CP3

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 14, 2011 -- Boozer/MJ Art, Spurs Catchy-Shootiness Over Heat, More Karl on 'Melo's _efense
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...

Catch n' Shoot: March 3, 2011 -- Durant 'Out for the Year,' More Than a Rose Text to LeBron, Analytics-Scouting False Dichotomy, Grizzlies' Odd Defensive Efficiency

Catch n' Shoot: March 3, 2011 -- Durant 'Out for the Year,' More Than a Rose Text to LeBron, Analytics-Scouting False Dichotomy, Grizzlies' Odd Defensive Efficiency
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 »

Catch n' Shoot: February 25, 2011 -- BBR Rankings, Looming Lockout, Buyouts, and Bone Thugs-n-Beasley
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 »

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...

Catch n' Shoot: December 11, 2010

Odd, meaningless notes: Since losing to the Bulls, the Mavs have won 11 straight; since beating the crap out of the Bulls, the Magic have lost four of five including four straight; the Bulls were the fifth of the Celtics’ current nine-game winning streak; after beating the Bulls, the Knicks won six of their next...

Catch n' Shoot: December 6, 2010
The Spurs (17-3) manhandled the Hornets (13-7) 109-84 shooting 58.6% and at one point leading by 38. Steve Nash is the shit. There’s a worthy effort to out the old and in the new with the amazing point guard we’re seeing in the NBA that leaves Nash out the second-yet-still-amazing class of PGs with Rajon... Read more »

The Thunder beat the Blazers, 107-103, in one of the worst OT’s ever. But it did supply us with this tidbit: TNT’s Kevin Harlan though Antoine Walker got the last shot for the Blazers. “I’ll put my draft evaluation record up against anyone’s,” Isiah Thomas said… Yes, that Isiah Thomas. He added that he hopes... Read more »

Blake Griffin is the story of L.A. basketball because “the Lakers story will be told in the spring,” according to J.A. Adande. Sure, he’s being provocative, but the motive is to begin a serious push of media hype away from John Wall and earlier East coast basketball to not lose interest in West coast hoops... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: October 26, 2010

Amid Sir Charles saying “the Heat have to win two, probably three, championships, in the next five years to be a success,” LeBron James’ new Nike commercial is his much more charming version of Chuck’s “I’m not a role model” ad. It’s amazing, IMO. Just humble enough to not be fake, just thought provoking enough... Read more »
