Catch n' Shoot: March 31, 2011 -- The 'Rip Move' Scam, Wall's Lost Mind, Inside Points/FT Prejudice

Catch n' Shoot: March 31, 2011 -- The 'Rip Move' Scam, Wall's Lost Mind, Inside Points/FT Prejudice
The “rip move” is a clever way for scorers to exploit a bad NBA rule with no purpose but to produce cheap points. I empathize with Royce Young (Daily Thunder), but a defender striking a shooter is not the same as a ball handler forcing his body through the stationary arm of a defender. The... Read more »

“That pass is, uh — is uhhhh…” (h/t: Matt McHale): The Celtics’ shot selection can look very weird on a chart. It can make you wonder how in hell they win. But “open shots are better than other shots.” Sandy Weil proved it. That said, Rajon Rondo holds onto the ball too fucking long. The... Read more »

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 »

Dunk Porn: Blake Nearly Teabags Polish Hammer... But It Didn't Count (Video)
Blake Griffin damn-near Timofey’d Marcin Gortat on Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, it didn’t count, as he was called for a charging foul and was T’d up for his reaction to the call. And, expectedly, the Staples Center Red Team lost to the Suns one day after losing to the… Cavs?: (h/t: Devin Kharpertian) After the game, Gortat... Read more »

“Rose took to Thibodeau almost immediately when the two met last summer,” Sean Deveney wrote a couple of days ago at The Sporting News. “Thibodeau made a couple of things clear at the time. For one, he would gladly give Rose greater control on the floor, let him be more of a decision maker and try... Read more »

Dunk Porn: Happy Belated Birthday, Blake Griffin (Video)
Wednesday was Blake Griffin’s 22nd birthday and Randy Foye gave him a pretty lob on a fastbreak. Griffin gave back this alley-oop to us: This was after the 76ers (35-33) decided to get rough with The Blakedevil and Blake got feisty: “I just felt like they had let things go way too much up to that...

Donald Sterling is what’s wrong with America. The Clippers healthcare wouldn’t cover a former coach Kim Hughes’ surgery. It’s L.A., though, and completely understandable to not pay for a worker’s penis enlargement Of course, that is if a penis enlargement is the equivalent of a crucial procedure needed for a worker with prostate cancer.

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 »
