Here’s the question of the day: “How can Marc Gasol win Defensive Player of the Year, but not be on the All-Defensive First Team?” It’s a puzzling one, isn’t it? But thankfully, we have an answer. That is, the media votes for the player of the year awards, while coaches vote for the All-NBA teams [...]

If you take a look at the Bulls’ box score from last nights game, you may look at Nazr Mohammed’s team-high +6 and wonder why he only played two minutes. Or maybe you won’t. After all, he’s only averaged 10.5 minutes per game during these Playoffs and he’s not exactly a threat on the offensive [...]
Marco Belinelli had a great first half against the Heat in game three, but he had one play in particular which nearly shut down the United Center.

A two time Olympic gold medalist. A nine time NBA all-star. A six-time All NBA first teamer. A three time MVP (soon to be four). A one time NBA champion. If you didn’t know, I’m talking about LeBron James, the guy we all regard as being the most dominant player in the NBA today. And with all those credentials, you’d expect him to be right at the top of the league in terms of [...]
