    Outside Looking In:
    At 23-16 the Indiana Pacers are having a fine season.
    They're overshadowed in their division by the Bulls
    and in the East by great teams like Miami and flashy
    teams like New York. But they're in a tight group with
    Philadelphia and Atlanta, competing to see who will be
    the best Eastern Conference team not named Chicago,
    Miami, or Orlando.

    This feat is made more remarkable by the fact that
    their best player and leading scorer, Danny Granger,
    has seldom been spoken of this year without "What

    The Worst Shot In the NBA:
    One of the things I think about a lot is where are worst shots in the league;
    in other words from a league-wide perspective, which spots are the least
    efficient shot locations. Obviously, the half-court heaves at the end of
    quarters are very low percentage shots, but what about “the normal areas”
    within the scoring zone? You might think that the so-called “long 2” is the
    easy answer, however one of the most striking things about my “all shots
    over 5 years chart” is that the bluest hues are in fact mid-range areas that
    aren’t that far from the hoop; in other words there are two court locations
    – symmetrically arranged – where NBA players as a whole are surprisingly
    inefficient.

    I thought it would be interesting to look at one of these spots in depth, and
    evaluate shot performance there. Perhaps the most inefficient shot league
    wide is located on the left side of the court about 13 feet from the basket
    at an angle of about 45 degrees.


    Collectively, the NBA shoots 36% from this spot, which is much lower than
    other places much further away from the basket. Why is this? I think two
    things are happening: 1) this is not a terribly easy shot to make, but perhaps
    more importantly...CONTINUE READING KIRK GOLDSBERRY'S COURT MAPPING

    Portlandia seems like a pretty effective remedy for someone with bro'd hands.

    Shhh, Dutchess is my code name....no one should know that.

    Off Topic: Just watched the Portlandia where they are riding the motorcycles, he's on a three-wheeler and she is on a one-wheeler....good stuff.

    Aesop is posting in here? This game thread is so over.

    By the way, I liked Portlandia before everyone thought it was cool. Like, in the way beginning before it went mainstream.

    I won't be disappointed by the ending will I? I've just heard the ending isn't very good, so that's why I've stayed away.

    I can't possibly predict whether or not you will like the ending; it's a personal response, and it's not as if there's a consensus on it anyway.

    Even if you hate the ending, you'll probably have enough enjoyment along the way to still feel as though it was worth the trip, though.

    This is all assuming you like SciFi.

    Personally, I was fine with the ending.

    That wasn't even close to a foul on George. Blah.

    I'd like to see AJ play with Roy a bit more. AJ throws pretty good entry passes..and I feel like getting the ball in good position might help Roy's confidence.

    so no offense on either side.

    that's ok, it's not like we need a trade or anything Bird. everything is fine.
