I can’t take TNT broadcasts anymore. I can’t take it when they have their normal commentators, and I can’t take it when they have that “Players Only” jackoff sesh. Newsflash: joking about how to pronounce foreign names is no longer cool. It may have been cool when not half the league was of Euro origin, but it’s not cool now. This vid would be so much better with the Timberwolves commentators, maybe even better still with the Celtics commentators because you know Tommy Heinsohn was losing his mind every time Nemanja Bjelica made another three.
If you, like me, don’t really want to hear the commentary, turn it off and listen to some tunes instead. My recommended music pairing for this vid is the 12 trio sonatas by Domenico Gallo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkP81gRdg2Y . No rickroll, I promise. Let the soothing Baroque soundscapes accompany you on Bjelica’s career-high odyssey. You might have to rewatch the vid a dozen or more times before the sonatas finish, but it’ll be worth it. I promise.
I was really impressed with Bjelica tonight. Thibs has been leaning on him more with Jimmy Butler out, and tonight it really worked well. Maybe too well: Bjelica played 40 minutes tonight. Playing that many minutes consistently is what killed Butler in the first place, and it’s killed many of Thibs’ players in the past, and I don’t want to see anything happen to The Superb Serb.
