Vinny: Not a second-guesser

It says something that Peter Vecsey opened the NBA’s All-Star weekend by “breaking the news” of John Paxson’s supposedly imminent resignation and yet the big news out of Chicago was Vinny Del Negro’s decision to bench Derrick Rose with 4.7 seconds left in a tie game with Miami the night before.

Daily science: The best on-court Bull

Based on a traditional measure like, say, points per game, Chicago’s best basketball player is Ben Gordon (20.2), followed by Derrick Rose (16.8), Luol Deng (13.7), Drew Gooden (13.4) and so on. But advanced hoops science tells us that, in fact, that the one guy Vinny Del Negro should most want on the court is […]
