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 »

Bulls-Celtics Tie for #1 Displays a More Competitive Eastern Conference

Bulls-Celtics Tie for #1 Displays a More Competitive Eastern Conference
The Celtics have been at the top of the Eastern Conference for most of the season, but a recent rough patch with the Bulls’ winning streak has them holding onto the top seed by just a head-to-head tiebreaker — which could also shift in the Bulls’ favor. Once a thought not worth entertaining, the Bulls... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 1, 2011 -- Basketball Metrics 'Futility,' Dwight Howard's Underrated-ness, Underpaid Stars, Skiles Ridiculousness
If the Bulls win a title, I’ll go with Doug Thonus to get that “1.7%” tattoo. “No stat in basketball is perfect, regardless of the complexity of its formulation,” Rob Mahoney wrote, later adding: “The measures themselves are imperfect, but they’re perfect in promoting further research. None of the advanced stats we have today are... Read more »

Dunk Porn: Stephen Curry Tosses 3/4 Reverse Alley-Oop to Dorrell Wright (Video)
There was a third game on Thursday. It was the Warriors (21-27) beating the Bucks (19-29) at home 100-94. The game so far off the radar with LeBron James losing his damn mind in Orlando and the Spurs-Lakers for two tight nationally televised games. So far off the radar, the AP only posted five photos...

Bulls Win #31 Hosting the Bucks; Have They Clinched Yet?

Bulls Win #31 Hosting the Bucks; Have They Clinched Yet?
The Bucks had some late heroics, but not enough to beat the Bulls at the UC 92-83. Besides Chris Douglas-Roberts in the second half, the Bucks (16-26) just had no firepower to beat the Bulls (31-14) defense and the final 92-83 score of the Bulls win makes the game look tighter than it was. The... Read more »

Everyone sitting in the front row for the Bucks getting spanked by the Heat on Friday at the Bradley Center received an autographed pair of Brandon Jennings’ signature Under Armour sneakers and a thank you letter. (h/t: Kelly Dwyer) I don’t know what I think about this. Pretty cool kicks, though. Elsewhere: Kobe Bryant sent... Read more »

Refuting the 'Suffering Small Market Team' Myth

It’s in owners’, players’, media and fans’ best interest that the league be competitive because of things on the court and intelligent decisions off the court. That the game isn’t rigged by dishonest officiating, but also not by the depth of a few pockets. In fact, success in the NBA is little different from the... Read more »
