Bulls Will Face Hawks in Second Round, Not Magic.... Wait! What?!?

Bulls Will Face Hawks in Second Round, Not Magic.... Wait! What?!?
Yes the (#5) Hawks handled the (#4) Magic in the first round in six games. The Hawks’ 84-81 Game 6 win iced the series on Thursday night to face the (#1) Bulls in the second round. Mike Bianchi wrote on Wednesday that the “Atlanta Birdbrains” would blow the 3-1 lead (Orlando Sentinel); to which, Josh... Read more »

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...

For the best NBA playoff previews, go to NBAPlaybook.com. Sebastian Pruiti posted his complete Bulls-Pacers preview — which I reviewed — and is currently working on Heat-76ers and Celtics-Knicks. The West is shaping a bit more, as all NBA teams play on Wednesday, the final night of the season (Zach Lowe, The Point Forward): 1.)... 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 »

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.

Awesome artwork by Dustin Watson. His current project is doing 30 illustrations over 30 days — one player from each NBA team. Day #13, he did Carlos Boozer and posted it at “Blog-a-Bull”: Even more awesome artwork by Ziarekenya Smith. Dan Devine noted that this has been around for a while, but until his post I hadn’t...

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 »
