As the Knicks commentators so nicely pointed out, Damyean Dotson is the first Knicks rookie to score 30 points in a game since… wait! I’m going to let you figure this one out. I would’ve had a really hard time with this one, even though I definitely made a vid (since deleted, along with its tens of thousands of views) for the performance. This is a toughie. Don’t feel bad if you don’t get it. If you really want to know the answer, just wait until the end of the video.
Obviously, the Knicks were going into this game with the intent to lose. Michael Beasley, their lone microwave scorer, got “injured” 18 seconds into the game, and while they didn’t start their scrub-unit, said scrub-unit got plenty of time. However, the Heat had other plans, and those plans included “sucking”, “blowing”, and “gargling scrote”. Dotson is not a good player, at least, all evidence has thus far pointed to him not being a good player, but the Heat simply couldn’t stop him. LeBron wouldn’t have let this happen, just saying.
In the end, he managed 30 points, over doubling his previous career-high, and it’s not even the last game of the season. This is definitely a last-game-of-season type performance, just like my last vid of Johnathan Motley scoring 26, and I’m wondering what the heck got into people tonight. It’s a bonanza for marginal players.
