Paul George 31 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2013)

“Paulie, honey, your girlfriend is here,” Paul’s mom yelled from the kitchen. Another shot right through the net. Swish. “Tell her I’m busy.” He lined up another one: nothing but bottom. “But, Paulie, dear, it’s prom night. You gotta take Sarah to the prom, remember?” Paul did remember. But prom wasn’t important. Basketball was important….

Ben McLemore 15 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2013)

Remember when Bradley Beal was the next Ray Allen? I hope he enjoyed those times because his right to the next-Ray-Allen throne has been usurped by Ben McLemore. Could someone remind me why this guy fell out of the top five in the draft? Because his stroke is so pure that he can’t help but…

Eric Bledsoe 25 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (11/5/2013)

I just read Eric Bledsoe’s Wikipedia article. What I found interesting was that apparently there was controversy regarding his high school transcript; his grades had been altered to make him NCAA eligible. Which illustrates the folly of the concept of a “student-athlete”. Why should Bledsoe be forced to get good grades in order to further…

Jonas Valanciunas 18 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2013)

I sometimes feel like the Toronto Raptors fanbase as a whole is pinning too many of its hopes on the play of Jonas Valanciunas. He’s not even that good, really. He’s firmly in the realm of “okay”. But Raptors fans were sure that he was going to be an All-Star this year, and elevate their…

J.J. Redick 26 Points Full Highlights (11/4/2013)

The sound of an air horn roused DeAndre Jordan from his sleep. “Huh? Wuh?” J.J Redick leaned over DeAndre’s resting form, military helmet perched askew on his head. “TODAY IS DAY ONE OF FREE THROW BOOT CAMP!” “Man, screw that, it’s three in the morning,” DeAndre responded dully, turning over to resume his sleep. The…

Omri Casspi 19 Points/4 Assists Full Highlights (11/4/2013)

Okay, so last time I did highlights of a player from Israel, I made some comments about the Jewish people that could be construed as insensitive. Whoops! I promise not to do that this time. The lines that divide us – race, religion, nationality, a myriad others – could so easily be eliminated through understanding…

Jared Sullinger 16 Points/2 Threes Full Highlights (11/4/2013)

The Celtics have a bad situation on their hands. No, not their lack of a point guard. Well, yeah, their PG situation is pretty dire. But that’s not what I’m talking about here. This might be even worse. Their sophomore power forward thinks it’s okay for him to shoot threes. Never mind the fact that…

Andre Iguodala 32 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (11/4/2013)

“Night falls over the city of Philadelphia. The evil lurking in the shadows is making ready to appear, to disrupt the lives of the citizens of this beautiful town. Ah yes. The night. My time. Beware evil-doers, for…” “Damn it Andre, I knew I’d find you up here on the roof of the Wells Fargo…

Channing Frye 19 Points/2 Blocks Full Highlights (11/3/2013)

Channing Frye sat out all of last season with an enlarged heart. I understand that heart conditions are not a laughing matter, but I feel like people aren’t taking advantage of the vast potential for humor in this situation. If I were a commentator, an example call would sound something like this: “Channing sinks another…

Metta World Peace 17 Points Full Highlights (11/3/2013)

Using my powers of clairvoyance, I tapped into Metta World Peace’s mind after his good performance against the Timberwolves to see if I could gain some insight into the inner machinations of this enigmatic man. This is what I heard: “Teeth. Teethy teeth. One teeth two teeth three teeth. Teeth in my mouth. Mouthy mouth….
