Jonas Valanciunas 20 Points Full Highlights (1/27/2014)

Jonas Valanciunas sat in front of his glowing TV in the otherwise darkened studio apartment. Arrayed on the table in front of him were a myriad of snack items: cheez doodlez, nacho chips with assorted dips, and an untouched assortment of traditional Lithuanian baked goods courtesy of his mother. The only evidence that they had…

Dennis Schroeder 10 Points Full Highlights (1/27/2014)

Another highlight maker’s quandary: how to spell foreign names? The NBA lists him as Schroder, which is totally wrong. Totally wrong. I refuse to use such a blatant misspelling. His jersey has the umlaut over the O, I think. That is correct. But this is America. We don’t use diacritical marks. Because of freedom. My…

Jodie Meeks 24 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (1/26/2014)

Jodie Meeks is a rare case: a college sharpshooter picked in the second round, who managed to, eventually, solidify himself as a good NBA shooter. It seems like the extra foot or so really takes its toll for most people, including Jodie early in his career. I remember Bucks fans being really disappointed with his…

Arron Afflalo 25 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2014)

Tobias Harris stuck his head out the window of the team bus. “Arron, what are you standing outside in the rain for? The bus is gonna leave without you.” Arron raised his head to stare at the grey clouds above, eyes closed to protect against the heavy rain shower. “Leave me, then. My soul is…

Ben McLemore 18 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2014)

Last year, there was a quote from a college scout which described Ben McLemore’s shooting as video-game-esque. I don’t know about you, but if Ben’s playing style was anything like how I play video games, he would be scoring 60 PPG on 44% shooting. Chris Smoove is a popular 2K youtuber, but he tries too…

Tim Hardaway Jr. 18 Points/4 Threes Full Highlights (1/26/2014)

Tim Hardaway Jr. has stood out from his draft class by not being total, unadulterated human waste. His ability to positively contribute to his team is a rare and unique attribute among his fellow rookies. Not only can he shoot the three, but his above-average athleticism allows him some highlight-worthy dunks. He can also dribble…

Manny Harris 18 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2014)

Is it bad that my mental image of Manny Harris, before this game, consisted of a black guy donning one of those ketchup-and-mustard Cavs jerseys with a head full of dreadlocks? Must be Manny Ramirez corrupting my thoughts with his insidious ways. Who can you trust if you can’t trust your own mind? But now…

Nate Wolters 8 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/25/2014)

Nate Wolters was a fun story early in the season. Starting a bunch of games, not doing as bad as you would expect, throwing oops to Giannis. Point guard of the future, for sure. But now he doesn’t get to play except in blowouts (so every other game). I don’t get it. Ridnour is old…

Brandon Knight 27 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/25/2014)

Brandon Knight is putting together a little streak of good play. However, the Bucks are getting routinely blown out by twenty points despite Knight’s apparent successes. Is Knight to blame for his teams dismal failure? Yes. Well, kind of. If he was a better point guard, his teammates would get better shots, but it’s not…

Wilson Chandler 25 Points Full Highlights (1/25/2014)

In assigning all of the players on the Nuggets’ roster to their corresponding zoo animals, I have come up with the following list, which is a work in progress: Wilson Chandler: Lion Kenneth Faried: Kangaroo Ty Lawson: Otter Randy Foye: Tapir or Koala JaVale McGee: Giraffe Nate Robinson: Meerkat Anthony Randolph: That kid on a…
