After a very poor shot by Jared Sullinger, Bradley snatched the ball before it bounced out of bounds and he floated it over the backboard for two as the shot clock expired. It was, as the kids who used to pick me last in gym class would say, a very nice shot.

I heard a rumor last week that within the days after Derrick Rose was lost for the season (again), the Bulls called the Magic about Jameer Nelson. Obviously, I have no idea if this is true, I just get random people who like to text and email me with things they’ve heard because it’s fun to gossip. But I think there’s some truth to it, because on the day that I was told it happened, Nelson sprained his foot.
