Horny Notes: May 6, 2011 -- Bulls' Dominant Rebounding, Crawford's Bad D & Big Mouth, Rose's Sprained Ankle,

Horny Notes: May 6, 2011 -- Bulls' Dominant Rebounding, Crawford's Bad D & Big Mouth, Rose's Sprained Ankle,
Jamal Crawford had the nerve to say after Game 2: “If that’s their best shot, we’re in good shape.” (K.C. Johnson and Fred Mitchell, Chicago Tribune): “That’s his opinion,” Derrick Rose responded. “To us, that wasn’t our best game at all.” Powerade put up a sweet billboard in the West Loop, commemorating Rose’s MVP honor...

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...

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...

Return of the Catch n' Shoot: February 17, 2011
I didn’t do daily “Catch n’ Shoot” posts for quite some time because I started yet another part-time teaching job on top of my current load. Between bringing back game previews for every game or this section, the decision was easy. There is a change, though. As the playoffs come closer, I might go through... Read more »

The Nuggets’ (21-16) 132-98 defeat of the Suns (15-21) somehow managed to not the biggest embarrassment of the night…. (I’m pointing and laughing at you, Cavs.) But over the course of the game, J.R. Smith threw down a gritty alley-oop on Marcin Gortat. After the game, Gortat was all a-Twitter and pointed this sad, yet... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: December 23, 2010
J.R. Smith pulled off this fantastic 360 layup in Denver’s loss to the Spurs. People are trashing it was unnecessary. Are you serious? He should’ve attempt to get the refs to blow the whistle on Tim Duncan? Seriously?!? Beautiful move. Smart move. Carmelo Anthony missed Wednesday’s loss to the Spurs due to the death of...

Luol Deng is a secessionist. He registered to vote in the upcoming Jan. 9 referendum in Southern Sudan to claim independence from the genocidal regime ruling the country. Role model, IMO: The Nets are reportedly going to ask permission to make a grand pitch-type presentation to sell Carmelo Anthony on signing an extension that would... Read more »
