Catch n' Shoot: April 25, 2011 -- The Weekend in the Amazing 2011 Playoffs & Super-Elite CP3
(#5) Hawks lead (#4) Magic 3-1. This series has been painful to watch. The boredom is criminal. The Hawks have taken both games in Atlanta, starting with Jamal Crawford luckboxing heroically nailing this 3-pointer at the end of Game 3 (Basketball-Reference): Game 4 ended 88-85 (BBR) and I admit that I neglected it for lesson planning...

Catch n' Shoot: March 24, 2011 -- The Truth Needs the Ball, Aldridge Deserves More Love, AAU Needs to Poof!, Jimmer Needs a Guru
“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 3, 2011 -- Durant 'Out for the Year,' More Than a Rose Text to LeBron, Analytics-Scouting False Dichotomy, Grizzlies' Odd Defensive Efficiency
Kevin Durant says he’s “out for the year” after spraining his ankle: To which he quick followed up: “No, just playing. It’s just a little tweak. I did it before. I’ve just got to see how it feels in the morning and hopefully I’m ready to go.” Lee Jenkins’ profile on Derrick Rose at SI... Read more »

K.C. Johnson, Deng's Numbers Do Not 'Compare Favorably' to Pierce's

K.C. Johnson, Deng's Numbers Do Not 'Compare Favorably' to Pierce's
The Tribune beat reporter said Luol Deng was snubbed from the All-Star team, despite numbers like that of All-Star Paul Pierce. He was very, very wrong. The Tribune News Services had four basketball reporters write who was “the biggest snub” from the 2011 All-Star rosters. One those was K.C. Johnson at the Chicago Tribune, who... 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 »

Dunk Porn: Paul Fv@%!ng Pierce (Video)
Rajon Rondo returned after missing seven games to a turned ankle in New York and only scored four points with eight assists in 33:44 that didn’t negate five turnovers. Without Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce was awesome with 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting and 7-for-8 on FT shooting — 3-for-3 on threes — and Ray Allen... 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 »
