Tom Thibodeau Says Jimmy Butler Has Been “Incredible” And Is “A Star”

Jimmy Butler

No one can accuse Bulls coach Tom Thiboeau of fawning praise over one of his player’s performances — he expects excellence. The hardscrabble helmsman with the voice like gravel isn’t one to coddle anyone, but after Jimmy Butler tied his career high with 32 points in a losing effort to the Nuggets last night, Thibs couldn’t but praise his maturing 3&D wing.

GIF: Danilo Gallinari’s “Bella” Circus Shot That Didn’t Count

Danilo Gallinari

With a little over two minutes remaining in the Bulls-Nuggets game in Denver last night, Danilo Gallinari was pinned along the far sideline with the shot clock running down.

Is This Nate Robinson Dime The Assist Of The Year?

Nate Robinson

The degree of difficulty here is why we’re wondering if this might be the assist of the year. Nate Robinson is a scoring dynamo, so it was kind of shocking to watch him ignore a shot right at the rim to instead find JaVale McGee for the layup plus the foul. Except, it’s how Nate made it happen that’s so magnificent. Read More »

There are a lot of reasons fans write off JaVale McGee as wasted potential. The seven foot Nuggets center has become synonymous with on-court goofiness, so much so that Shaqtin’ a Fool could be renamed “Pullin’ A JaVale.” That being written, he’s also endearingly sweet, which he showed off during Denver’s big, 117-97, win over the Pelicans on Friday night.

JaVale McGee Air Ball

The Knicks outscored the Nuggets 31-8 in the second quarter on Sunday. During that second quarter stomping that led to a 109-93 win at the Garden — snapping a seven-game losing streak for the Knicks — JaVale McGee suffered the mortifying shame of the air ball on a free throw attempt. Except, that might not have been the worst air ball of the day, as Knicks rookie sub Travis Wear did his best to one-up McGee. Read More »

Video: Steve Blake Offended By Kenneth Faried Screen, So He Puts Him On His Butt

Kenneth Faried, Nate Robinson, Steve Blake

Steve Blake is right around our height, and we actually outweigh him by close to 10 pounds (yes, he’s all svelte muscle, and we’re a dilapidated former HS athlete who smokes cigarettes, but still). Kenneth Faried is nearly half a foot and more than 50 pounds heavier than Blake, but the size discrepancy didn’t matter during the fourth quarter of Portland’s 116-100 win last night when Blake took umbrage with Faried’s screen in his back.
