Horny Notes: March 22, 2011 -- Bulls as Championship Favorites, In-Season Playoff Preparation, Team Fatigue, Sad Rose
Bulls-Hawks preview here. Bulls didn’t get into Atlanta until 3 a.m.: .bbpBox50313363573587970 {background:url(http://a2.twimg.com/profile_background_images/35669026/dunk_small.jpg) #000000;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} Gonna be one of those gut-check games.

On 'MVP Conversation' Logic: Rose's MVP Case Isn't 'Self-Evident'

On 'MVP Conversation' Logic: Rose's MVP Case Isn't 'Self-Evident'
A comment I made on a blog post quoting myself with other knowledgeable analysts, who happen to be Bulls fans, denying that it’s so “self-evident” that Derrick Rose is the NBA MVP. Ricky O’Donnell edits the fine Tremendous Upside Potential blog and posted comments of mine, “Blog-a-Bull” editor “Your Friendly Bulls Blogger,” and “Ball Don’t... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 8, 2011 -- Winning Rose, Misty-Eyed Heatles, Clutchiness, SVG on 'Stern der Führer'

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: March 2, 2011 -- Sam Smith Hates Basketball, Spurs D Isn't Bad, FT+, Bissinger's Still Racist

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 28, 2011 -- Sterling's Racial Ignorance Hits New Level, Buyouts, Kendrick's Joylessness

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 »

FUNNY: Bogans and Boozer Flowcharts

FUNNY: Bogans and Boozer Flowcharts
I like flowcharts. Hopefully, you do, too. Kelly Dwyer found some funny flowcharts on the interwebz and posted them in yesterday’s “10-man rotation” at “Ball Don’t Lie” and on his Twitter account throughout the day. Included were charts for Keith Bogans and Carlos Boozer. I LOL’d. (Mark Deeks, who runs the fantabulous ShamSports.com, notified me... Read more »

NBA Tells MLB on Twitter in One Word, Now Belongs to Basketball

NBA Tells MLB on Twitter in One Word, Now Belongs to Basketball
After the Packers won the Super Bowl on Sunday night, the Major League Baseball public relations machine tweeted one word: “Baseball.” The NBA public relations machine responded publicly on Twitter in one word: “No” (h/t: Emma Carmichael): rockstar The tweet has since been deleted, but the comedy lives on forever. Admittedly, my #1 sport is... Read more »

Rudy Tomjanovich Nominated for HOF, Phil-Jack Goes All Legacy-Protection n' Isht

Rudy Tomjanovich Nominated for HOF, Phil-Jack Goes All Legacy-Protection n' Isht
Phil Jackson isn’t a high-strung guy, but when he’s asked about others who dared breathe NBA air during his successes, he acts as much a juvenile as Michael Jordan that you’d think he bottles up a lot of crybaby bullshit inside. Rudy Tomjanovich, retired coach of the back-to-back Rockets championship teams in the 1990s, is... Read more »
