DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Month (October/November 2017 Dunkilation)

The decrepit gymnasium, from the outside, made no indication that it was occupied or even usable. The man approached it cautiously, looking around not only to ensure he wasn’t being watched, but also to verify that he was at the right location. His large gray overcoat, worn as a sort of anonymizing disguise, complemented the…

Jerian Grant 17 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

If there are any future NBA players watching this video (and there damn well better be), take note of the end of it. You see how Jerian Grant made a three-pointer as time expired in a lost game? Those are the kind of shots you need to be prepared to take if you want a…

Darius Miller 15 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

In a way, the fact that Darius Miller is having a good season for the Pelicans just exposes the Pelicans FO’s inability to construct a sensible roster around Anthony Davis (and now DeMarcus Cousins as well). If the Pelicans could actually sign legit NBA role-players, they wouldn’t need to reach into the bottom of the…

Markieff Morris 23 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

What is the official threshold for the amount of games you’re allowed to “work your way back from injury”? Is it fifteen? More? Less? Because Markieff Morris just played his fifteenth game back from injury, and one of the commentators said he was still coming back from injury, but I’m sitting here thinking “that sure…

Zach Randolph 25 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

Zach Randolph approached the Krispy Kreme store quietly. It was two in the morning, and the store was dark, empty of its usual lines of donut-seeking customers. Now he would be the only one in line. Thankful for the store’s location in the middle of a sprawling concrete expanse of shopping centers and big-box stores,…

Cristiano Felicio 12 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

Cristiano “The Brazilian Shaq” Felicio (or “The Babyface Shaq”, take your pick) made some waves in the offseason for having such a good agent that the Bulls decided to give him a four-year contract where he gets paid eight million dollars per year. This was after he averaged 5/5 on 58% shooting the year before….

Ben McLemore 14 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

I just want Ben McLemore to be a solid bench contributor in the NBA. Is that so much to ask? The stardom that many had hoped for is not going to happen unless cybernetics are involved. But solid role-player solidity is still within reach. He has the tools: a smooth jumper and soaring springiness. I…

Alec Burks 24 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

Two good games in a row for Alec Burks? My basketball-reference-fu is not so strong tonight, so I’m just going to assume that the last time that happened was approximately two decades ago. It’s been a while, at least. If he makes it three in a row next game, I can safely say that that…

Steven Adams Career High 27 Points/0 Missed Shots Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

Everyone has their own theory for why the Thunder are not performing to expectations. Iso this, Westbrook that, Donovan the other thing. As for me, I have no idea why they are sucking, and also no idea how to fix it. I gain most of my insight on teams while making these dinky little vids…

Jakob Poeltl 18 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2017)

Jakob “Der Gro├če Wiener” Poeltl can only make layups. That is his entire offensive game. He cannot do anything else. Even when it looks like he can totally dunk it, he opts instead for a layup while barely jumping. Energy conservation? Perhaps, but to me it looks like he’s a being a pillow-soft Euro softie…
