So I know I promised you guys that I would write up the first chapter of my new sci-fi novel entitled “Taurean Prince”, which isn’t about the basketball player at all but is instead about the Prince of a race called the Taures who live on a different planet, but it turns out that I’ve done way too many highlight videos today and my will to put any effort into these video descriptions is basically nil at this point. It’s still totally gonna happen, but it’s not gonna happen today.
The best part of this video isn’t the part where Taurean scores eleven points in the final six minutes of the game. That’s a pretty good part, but it’s not the best part. The best part is at 0:59, after Taurean makes a three-pointer in the waning seconds of the game, the Hawks commentators don’t even say anything. Bob Rathbun snickers once about four seconds after the shot goes in, and then the Wizards arena organist just plays a jaunty organ riff and nobody says anything. It’s like they’re so disgusted at the outcome of the game (at a micro level) and at the tanking direction the franchise has taken (at the macro level) that they won’t even dignify the end of a blowout loss with their commentary.
Am I reading too much into it? Probably.
