Seth Curry 16 Points/4 Steals Full Highlights (5/16/2019)

When ESPN deigned to show us what we signed up for instead of full-screen shots of Dell and Sonya Curry getting interviewed by an insufferable Doris Burke for half an hour, quite an exciting game happened. Not as exciting as pondering the possibility that Seth Curry and Stephen Curry are somehow related, or talking about…

Brook Lopez 29 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (5/15/2019)

I’ve always said that Brook Lopez is underutilized in Milwaukee. People who claim that he’s “playing the best basketball of his career” are getting swept up in the excitement of him jacking threes from just inside half-court. The more accurate statement is “he’s playing on the best team of his career”. It’s understandable, though. Not…

Maurice Harkless 17 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (5/14/2019)

The problem, as I see it, for the Trailblazers in this series is that they have to start both Maurice Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu. Mike Breen might call them “wildcards”, which is framing it in the best way possible, but if I were an elite playoff-caliber team, I’d want to replace one of those dudes,…

Serge Ibaka 17 Points Full Highlights (5/12/2019)

Serge “Ibaka Gaijin” Ibaka was literally the only Raptor aside from Kawhi Leonard to show up on offense this game. Kawhi had 41 points, including the game-winner as time elapsed, but he had to take 39 shots because his teammates were being useless bumnuggets. Ibaka had a good game, scoring 17 on ten attempts, but…

Nikola Jokic 29 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (5/12/2019)

The hugs had been exchanged. The tears had been shed. The realizations had been accepted: there would be no more basketball for this Nuggets team. Their dream of a championship, which had been faint at the outset of the season but had grown brighter as the wins rolled in, was extinguished. One player stayed back…

James Harden All 378 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Three-ilation Part I)

James Harden is notable for many things: his stepback three-pointer that looks like a travel. His ability to enrage opposing fanbases with uncanny foul-drawing ability. The fact that Sam Presti deemed his value in a trade to be equivalent to that of Kevin Martin. That funny commercial where he sang about taking his shirt off…

P.J. Tucker 15 Points Full Highlights (5/10/2019)

The Rockets season is over. This isn’t as tragic as the way they lost last year, which was a top-five tragic occurrence in the NBA ever, but it still must be sad for Houston fans. They just kind of sputtered out, even playing at home in an elimination game with the opposing team missing its…

Kevon Looney 14 Points Full Highlights (5/10/2019)

It took Kevin Durant being injured, but the Warriors finally got a decent performance from one of their bench players. And that means I finally get to make a Warriors vid for someone other than Andre Iguodala who, by the way, I’m FRICKIN’ tired of. I don’t even like that dude. Not like I enjoy…
