Catch n' Shoot: March 1, 2011 -- Basketball Metrics 'Futility,' Dwight Howard's Underrated-ness, Underpaid Stars, Skiles Ridiculousness
If the Bulls win a title, I’ll go with Doug Thonus to get that “1.7%” tattoo. “No stat in basketball is perfect, regardless of the complexity of its formulation,” Rob Mahoney wrote, later adding: “The measures themselves are imperfect, but they’re perfect in promoting further research. None of the advanced stats we have today are... Read more »

How Derrick Rose compares in this season’s matchups against the best PGs. Why is Jason Kidd included, but not Steve Nash? That was an interesting game. That Phoenix game made me realize this team was the truth. Matt McHale has the Bulls 29th in his Powerless Rankings. Clippers advertised a special offer at the L.A.... Read more »

'MVP Conversation' Study: Other Teams Win Less Without Their Stars Than Bulls Would Without Rose

'MVP Conversation' Study: Other Teams Win Less Without Their Stars Than Bulls Would Without Rose
The primary argument for proponents of Derrick Rose as the 2010-11 NBA MVP always resorts to underrating the way the Bulls are coached and generally managed. For lack of better words, it’s largely a trite “the Bulls would suck without Rose” argument. The argument isn’t without validity or value when applied across the league. But... 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 »

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 »

Theo Ratliff will be out 4-6 weeks after knee surgery. Doesn’t sound like much, but Andrew Bynum’s also still out and racing cars at high speeds. Include Lamar Odom and that makes two Imperial Lakers capable of playing center and Odom’s the starting power forward with Pau Gasol starting at center. Phil-Jack threatened to send... Read more »

If you believe David Stern, the NBA should contract while simultaneously “sometime in the next five years” adding a five-team European division. Put down all Tony Parker trade rumors. He has signed a 4yr./$50m extension with the Spurs that prevents him from becoming a restricted free agent this summer. Manu is in the first year... Read more »

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 »
