The Extraordinary Case of Derrick Rose Winning MVP

The Extraordinary Case of Derrick Rose Winning MVP
Personal opinions aside, there’s a truth in the pattern of past MVP winners that doesn’t bode well for Rose’s chances. unrelated note: why do handwritten-sign-people happen? Before the season, Derrick Rose asked, “Why can’t I be MVP?” The short answer: it’d be completely extraordinary because your team doesn’t win enough, other players in the league... Read more »

Dunk Porn: J.R. Smith Slams Polish Hammer (Video)

The Nuggets’ (21-16) 132-98 defeat of the Suns (15-21) somehow managed to not the biggest embarrassment of the night…. (I’m pointing and laughing at you, Cavs.) But over the course of the game, J.R. Smith threw down a gritty alley-oop on Marcin Gortat. After the game, Gortat was all a-Twitter and pointed this sad, yet... Read more »

Trade Idea: Derrick Rose for Deron Williams

Trade Idea: Derrick Rose for Deron Williams
Arguably the best or second-best point guard in the league for the arguably best-to-third-best in the league. See how stupid this game is? Pulling trades out of your ass and posting it as the title of a post to get cheap hits? Anywho, here’s Scott Carefoot’s Power Rankings at the PG position. They’re as I... Read more »

Tuesday was Larry Bird’s 54th birthday. So, I share with you all one of my favorite Bird games. He had a 47-14-11 triple-double against the Blazers, scoring 22 with his left hand. It was on the tail-end of a back-to-back where he had a 35-15-11 triple-double in Seattle. That’s right: two consecutive triple-doubles in a... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: December 6, 2010
The Spurs (17-3) manhandled the Hornets (13-7) 109-84 shooting 58.6% and at one point leading by 38. Steve Nash is the shit. There’s a worthy effort to out the old and in the new with the amazing point guard we’re seeing in the NBA that leaves Nash out the second-yet-still-amazing class of PGs with Rajon... Read more »

Through Friday’s games, the Heat were at the top of BBR’s quantitative Power Rankings — followed by the Hornets, Celtics, Lakers, and Spurs. The Bulls were 10th. No Clippers get Dunk Porn posts until the Del Negros find their second win. Saturday, Blake Griffin dropped 44 on the Bricks (6-8) and grabbed 15 boards and... Read more »

Kevin Love led the Darkopuppies (3-7) to a to a victory against the Knicks (3-6), 112-103, in a big way with a 30-30 double-double, Friday. It’s the first 30-rebound performance since Charles Barkley in 1996 and the first 30-30 since Moses Malone in 1982. Best part: the game was in Minnesota, but not on TV... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: November 11, 2010
I’m very glad I tuned in to the Jazz (5-3) coming back again from 18 down to beat the Magic (5-2), 104-94. It was Utah’s 3rd straight win after coming back to beat the Heat the previous evening in Miami. Terrible traveling calls were made throughout the game, mostly on Dwight Howard, so he was...

Catch n' Shoot: October 25, 2010
Awesome, must-read interview at the San Antonio Express-News with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili (h/t: SLAM). They discuss the changes that brought them together, their championship runs, their legacy, the “lack of respect” they receive, and which years of not winning that still bother them. Hakeem Olajuwon’s absolutely sick numbers while fasting for... Read more »
