The Bulls find themselves in a sticky situation with Carlos Boozer. He isn’t helping the team — I’d argue that he’s doing quite the opposite, as a matter of fact — and what the Bulls choose to do with him will be a developing storyline as we approach the trade deadline (and this summer, if he isn’t gone by then). He’s on the books for approximately $15 million next year, and his salary only climbs higher (to $16.8 million) the year after that. He’s 31 years old right now, so he doesn’t figure to improve any time soon. Even more troubling is the fact that his backup, Taj Gibson, will play his next four seasons under a $38 million deal. If Chicago can’t find any takers on Boozer in the upcoming weeks then the amnesty provision may be an option. In the wake of Nerlens Noel’s devastating knee injury, Tom Ziller rails against the NBA age minimum and the NBAPA’s lack of action. Chris Kaman is a hypocrite. Your 10 worst mid-range shooters in the NBA with 100+ attempts: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (23.5%), Anthony Davis (26%), Eric Bledsoe (30%), Josh Smith (30.2%), Jason Maxiell (32%), Andre Iguodala (32%), Tony Allen (32.4%), Greg Monroe (32.6%), DeMarcus Cousins (32.7%), E’Twaun Moore (32.8%). Welcome to the poor shot selection club. Kyrie Irving is often criticized for his lax defense, but he has actually been much better this year, as Sam Vecenie points out. Kevin Draper uses a fun little video as well as a chart to demonstrate the Warriors’ defensive issues, which consist of allowing Omer Asik to successfully dribble drive from the three-point line. Hedo Turkoglu apparently needs steroids to average 2.9 PPG on 26.4% from the floor.
