Horny Notes: April 26, 2011 -- D-Rose Playing Game 5, Bench Mob Benched, Boozer's Downs, Coach Korver
Derrick Rose is “definitely playing” Game 5 on Tuesday. He participated in Tuesday’s walk through, did some shooting, but didn’t practice; he was out of the precautionary walking boot and in shoes (K.C. Johnson, Twitter). .bbpBox62921850224787456 {background:url(http://a2.twimg.com/profile_background_images/35669026/dunk_small.jpg) #000000;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...

Horny Notes: April 19, 2011 -- Loving to Hate Psycho T's Trap, Vogel & a Trib Writer's BR Audition, on CP3-Rose Comparisons, Collison Day-to-Day

Horny Notes: April 19, 2011 -- Loving to Hate Psycho T's Trap, Vogel & a Trib Writer's BR Audition, on CP3-Rose Comparisons, Collison Day-to-Day
As a basketball nerd, I hated Tyler Hansbrough‘s trap on Derrick Rose that led to Kyle Korver‘s three in the corner. The Indy defense broke down because T’s trap because he was defending Joakim Noah on the weak side, forcing Booz’s defender — Jeff Foster — to shift to Noah and Paul George to virtually defend...

Horny Notes: April 15, 2011 -- Previewing the Bulls-Pacers is Boring, Bulls Immense Favs, Props to Bogans

Horny Notes: April 15, 2011 -- Previewing the Bulls-Pacers is Boring, Bulls Immense Favs, Props to Bogans
Please accept that it’s a great team against a terrible team. The objective needs to be kicking them in the nuts, shoving them down, and spraying dust on them while moving on to the second round. I’m sorry, but I can’t bring myself to give you in-depth previews of the Bulls-Pacers series, so — thankfully... Read more »

Sebastian Pruiti at the ESPN TrueHoop-affiliated NBA Playbook previewed the Bulls first round matchup with the Pacers in two posts — one on the two teams’ offenses and the other on their defenses. Luol Deng and Mike Dunleavy will be the two teams’ “X-Factors,” he added in a third post. Pruiti broke down the numbers with... 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 »

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: February 19, 2011
Sebastian Pruiti put together a nice breakdown of Derrick Rose’s jumper selection. Dennis Rodman was announced as a finalist for the 2011 class of the Basketball Hall of Fame, which is great, despite Reggie Miller getting snubbed. The rest of the finalists are very ‘meh.’ I have a personal nostalgic love for finalist Chris Mullin... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: November 18, 2010
New rule: No “Dunk Porn” posts for Blake Griffin until that JV squad finds a win. Until then, here’s a quickie to rub out between work and dinner on Anthony Tolliver and the Saving Grace, himself: Sebastian Pruii broke down my favorite play from the Bulls’ win over the Rockets. Glad he caught it. The... Read more »

How Noah Left His Box-Out Against Duncan
Sebastian Pruiti broke down an example of Joakim Noah leaving his box out positioning early on a crucial free throw miss to use his athleticism to neutralize Tim Duncan’s power on the boards, in the Bulls’ loss Wednesday evening in San Antonio. This actually happened the entire second half on the offensive glass. Noah’s high... Read more »
