Fred VanVleet 19 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Fred “Vleetwood Mac” VanVleet isn’t as good as last year, in terms of on-off numbers, but at least he’s still in the positives. Last year, the Raptors were good based on the strength of their bench, with VanVleet and Pascal Siakam leading the way. This year, they’re good because they have Danny Green and Kyle…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Fan voting for the NBA All-Star game has ended. You have no more chances to try and get your second-favorite Bosnian sportsperson (after Edin Dzeko) into the NBA’s premiere showcase of talent. If you want, I can show you the secret backdoor I made into the NBA’s voting systems (I’m still casting thousands of votes…

Jerryd Bayless 14 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

I’m certain I didn’t realize it at the time, but back when I was watching Jerryd “Baysed God” Bayless on the Bucks back in the 2015-16 season, I was actually watching PRIME Jerry Bayless. The Bayless experience was never better before or since, unless you count that time he was Summer League MVP (I don’t…

Dragan Bender 13 Points Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

I hate the feeling of optimism entering my body. It feels like aliens probing my mind, that’s how uncomfortable and foreign the concept of optimism is to me. I thrive on pessimism and darkness. Positive thoughts to me are like candles in the wind: briefly aflame, then snuffed out quickly before providing any but the…

Josh Okogie 21 Points Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Tonight saw the much-anticipated head-to-head matchup of two players who have laid claim to Kobe-related nicknames. In one corner stands Josh “Okobie” Okogie. In the other corner stands Elie “Okobe” Okobo. Who will prove to the world that they are deserving of the Kobe crown, and who will prove to be an impotent loser who…

Josh Jackson 27 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Question to Suns fans out there: is Josh Jackson still considered by your fanbase to be a critical component of the team going forward? Does he make up one third of the Suns’ “big three” with Booker and Ayton, or is the “big three” actually a “big two” and Jackson is just kind of a…

Bogdan Bogdanovic 16 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Unlike certain other Serbians who play in the NBA, Bogdan Bogdanovic is not a triple-double machine. He has all the skills for it, but usually doesn’t have the raw volume necessary to make it happen. He is also not played as the primary ball-handler enough to get himself into double-digit assists, something that he’s only…

Marvin Bagley 22 Points Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

You know what? If Marvin Bagley were to ever open up a restaurant or deli called “Bagley’s Bagelly Bagels”, I would patronize the ever-loving FRICK out of it. We’re talking a daily customer from day one here, provided the deli was opened in my local area and not somewhere dumb like Sacramento. I would eat…

Landry Shamet 18 Points Full Highlights (1/21/2019)

Landry Shamet averaged 5 assists per game in his final season at Wichita State. That’s… a lot of assists! I am absolutely surprised by that figure, because right now he’s doing hardly any playmaking. For comparison, Chris Paul averaged only 6.6 in his final college season. That’s not even a whole lot more, and Paul…

Kenneth Faried 13 Points Rockets Debut Full Highlights (1/21/2019)

Surprise, surprise. Kenneth Faried gets actual minutes, and he produces. Take notes, Kennocoachingability Atkinsdiet. You give Faried the chance to get on the court, and he immediately starts grabbing balls and putting them in holes, hair flopping wildly behind him. I don’t really know why he didn’t get minutes on the Nets, maybe it was…
