Crossover Porn: D-Rose Punks the Celts Better in Slow-Mo & HD (Video)

Crossover Porn: D-Rose Punks the Celts Better in Slow-Mo & HD (Video)
If you’re unaware of NBA.com’s “Phantom” series, it’s amazing and I highly suggest going through the videos on their YouTube page. They’re all beautiful. The Association put together a gorgeous piece of Derrick Rose making Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Nenad Krstic, and Glen Davis look silly on crossovers last week. If you have a slow... Read more »

Bulls Beatdown Showed How They're Just Better Than the Celtics

Bulls Beatdown Showed How They're Just Better Than the Celtics
The #1 Bulls blew out the #2 Celtics 97-81 with defense, rebounding, and all-around efficient shooting. The matchup between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls (58-20) and Celtics (54-24), proved one thing over all else to me: the Cs are too damn small to beat the Bulls. “They ran their offense...

Catch n' Shoot: March 22, 2011 -- Sad 'Melo, Howard's MVP Case, Gay Done, Duncan Down, Larry Brown Wants to Coach (Because Quitting's Easier With a Job)
Maybe a “SadMelo” Tumblr page wouldn’t be so premature: (h/t: “Snottie Drippen”) I found it difficult to root against the Celtics on Monday. Is that weird? Yeah, I’m a terrible Bulls fan. Maybe, I hate the Knicks more than I love the Bulls, but a bit less than I love the Celtics. Oh well, I... Read more »

Put Boozer in the 2011 All-Star Game

Put Boozer in the 2011 All-Star Game
Despite only playing 29 games, Carlos Boozer would be a reasonable All-Star reserve. If Carlos Boozer is makes or is snubbed from the Eastern Conference roster for the 2011 All-Star Game, it wouldn’t be a basketball injustice, but he’s on my All-Star team. Of players eligible for the FG% leaderboard, Boozer is 3rd among Eastern... Read more »

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 »

Catch n' Shoot: December 30, 2010
The Heat’s (25-9) 16-game streak of keeping opponents under 100 pts was snapped by the Rockets (15-16), but Miami reacted to the fast pace of the 102-possession game winning 125-119 in the only game I watched last night. Very fun game to watch where Dwyane Wade had his second straight 40-point performace, scoring 45 on... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: December 29, 2010
The Mavs (24-6) got it handed to them by the damn Raptors (11-20) 84-76. Most astounding is that half the Toronto squad was injured and the other half is worse than bad, so the Raptors played with an eight-man rotation. Some guy named Ed Davis dropped 17 off the bench, FFS! The Mavs were without... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: December 10, 2010
Kobe Bryant is 21 points behind John Havlicek for 11th all-time going into Friday’s game in Chicago. I didn’t post a preview. Just about everything I’d write would be repeated from my preview and recap of their last meeting in L.A. Also: Is tonight Phil Jackson’s last night coaching at the United Center 20 seasons...
