Horny Notes: April 13, 2011 -- Brewer Out, Jo-No Questionable, East Playoff Schedule, Bulls Awesome Offense?
Ronnie Brewer is out (thumb sprain); Joakim Noah questionable (ankle sprain) Wednesday vs. Nets (K.C. Johnson, Chicago Tribune). Brewer said after the game “he will play in the playoffs ‘as long as it’s attached.’ “Tom Thibodeau had plenty to say about resting players before the playoffs after Tuesday’s game where the two were injured.

Bulls Win Eighth Straight, Creep Back Ahead of Celtics

Bulls Win Eighth Straight, Creep Back Ahead of Celtics
Great defense covered up the Bulls’ horrifically horrifying shooting for an 84-73 win in New Jersey. The Bulls (49-18) busted the Nets’ five-game winning streak to extend their own streak to eight with an 84-73 win in New Jersey on Thursday night. There was little offensive efficiency toward which to point as a power shifter,... Read more »

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.

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
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 22, 2011
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...

Check out Paul Banks’ piece on Joakim Noah’s NGO, “Noah’s Arc Foundation.” The objective is to enrich children’s confidence through the arts and sports. Role model, IMO. Thibs confirmed to ESPNChicago.com Noah will definitely play Wednesday in Toronto, as expected. I wish more players treated the media as Kobe Bryant does — as he did... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: February 20, 2011
The 2011 Dunk Contest was fun and I posted every dunk here, but my favorite Dunk Contest dunker is still Vince Carter: ‘Melo’s not going to Jersey. He wants to be a Knick or a Bull; the Knicks are willing to take him on, but the Bulls say it’s too expensive. ‘Melo never had to... Read more »
