Catch n' Shoot: March 29, 2011 -- KD-RussWest Individual Clutchiness, LeBron's Most Valuable-ness, Parity's Questionable Valuable-ness

Catch n' Shoot: March 29, 2011 -- KD-RussWest Individual Clutchiness, LeBron's Most Valuable-ness, Parity's Questionable Valuable-ness
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook really don’t connect in so-called “clutch possessions.” FTR, I don’t believe in clutchiness. LeBron James is still the most productive player in the NBA this season. How you want to define “value” is a story in itself and always fully deserving of scrutiny, but LeBron’s production is almost unmatched. The... Read more »

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: March 2, 2011 -- Sam Smith Hates Basketball, Spurs D Isn't Bad, FT+, Bissinger's Still Racist
Tumblr site of the week: Sad Perk: This was my second favorite Perk meme so far. I’m getting to the point where Sam Smith has no credibility in my mind. He wrote that Dwight Howard “doesn’t play pick-and-roll.” He really wrote that. Then, that “there’s a big difference between a player who can find a... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: February 27, 2011 -- Blake and Love's Record-Setting Double-Doubles, Lockout Looming, and Kendrick Sidelined
Rip Hamilton would likely be a Bull right now if took Cleveland’s buyout in the Pistons-Cavs deal he sabotaged. Blake Griffin’s the eighth rookie in NBA history to amass 50 double-doubles. 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 Bulls stood pat as the trade deadline hit at 2:00 p.m. CST on Thursday. The three most notable deals that fell through were acquiring Courtney Lee from the Rockets, O.J. Mayo from the Grizzlies, or Anthony Parker from the Cavs. Houston wouldn’t budge on demanding a big, Mike McGraw of The Daily Herald tweeted.... 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: November 11, 2010
I’m very glad I tuned in to the Jazz (5-3) coming back again from 18 down to beat the Magic (5-2), 104-94. It was Utah’s 3rd straight win after coming back to beat the Heat the previous evening in Miami. Terrible traveling calls were made throughout the game, mostly on Dwight Howard, so he was...
