Catch n' Shoot: March 21, 2011 -- Basketball & EV, Kobe & Bynum Get Clinical, Nietzsche & Basketball, Bomani & 'Uncle Tom'
The most crucial next step in basketball analytics is discovering expected value (EV) Unlike baseball, where we have a game of a somewhat comparable sort of repetition but also knowledge of how many runs produce wins and players routinely move to and from a highly developed minor league structure, basketball analysis still struggle with a relativity...

Catch n' Shoot: March 16, 2011 -- Grant Hill-Jalen Rose Uncle Tom Drama, D-Rose's Bad Shooting, Coach Scal, LOL Knicks

Catch n' Shoot: March 16, 2011 -- Grant Hill-Jalen Rose Uncle Tom Drama, D-Rose's Bad Shooting, Coach Scal, LOL Knicks
No, Grant Hill, Jalen Rose didn’t say you and other black Duke players “sold out your race.” Hill’s op-ed post at the NY Times completely missed Rose’s point and Rose seems to have fully acknowledged that his hate for Hill in his college days was irrational and misguided. The ‘Fab Five’ documentary wasn’t a look... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 10, 2011 -- Omer's Value, KD's Heroics, Dunk Porn Galore, Pastel Oden
Over the summer, Derrick Rose shot “at least 1,000 treys a day from a variety of angles.” Yes. The value and character of Omer Asik, a great profile by Steve Aschburner at NBA.com. Kurt Helin has Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kobe Bryant on his five-man MVP ballot. I don’t disagree with this... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: March 9, 2011 -- Bulls Favored to Win East, Heat Lose Fifth Straight, Brad Miller's Disaster Night, NBPA Argument With Owners' Data
Horace Grant reminisces 1991. Bulls are 2:1 favorites to win the East, according to Hollinger’s postseason odds on Wednesday morning, with the Celtics at 3:1. He also has the Bulls and Lakers a little worse than 4:1 to win it all, with the Lakers at 19.6% and the Bulls at 18.5%. Matt Olsen offered up... Read more »
