Damjan Rudez 11 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2014)

Damjan Rudez: next Dirk? Let’s look at the checklist for next Dirk status. Above average height? Check. Lack of skin pigmentation? Check. From a European Union Member State? Check. Name starts with D? Check. No one really knows how to pronounce said name? Check. Shoots threes? Check. There you have it. If you need more…

Donald Sloan 29 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2014)

Donald Sloan opened the wooden door with caution. He knew what had occurred last time something like this happened, and he wanted to be prepared for anything. He stepped into a familiar yet unfamiliar scene, closing the door behind him, which promptly vanished. It was a typical bar; a few smoky tables occupied by drunken…

Joe Ingles 11 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2014)

Terrified denizens ran through the streets of downtown Chicago. Some ran, not knowing what they were running from, but hearing the sounds of destruction from a few blocks away. Others, who had already seen the creature, ran with renewed haste, as they knew that they did not want to ever see it again. More screams…

Travis Wear 9 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2014)

Wow, these highlights turned out really short. “Of course they did, DownToBuck, Travis only had 9 points!”. I know that. Do you think I didn’t know that going in? I was banking on the 2 assists that he had to puff up the length to maybe a minute or so. As it turns out, those…

Henry Sims 22 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2014)

Does anyone know the address of the 76ers play-by-play guy? He sounded really down tonight after Philly lost again. Like, really down. Super morose. The way he said that Henry Sims was only two points off his career high was unsettling. The “I don’t know if I want to wake up tomorrow” kind of unsettling….

Aron Baynes 10 Points/2 Dunks Full Highlights (11/24/2014)

Aron “Baynes Bus” Baynes dunked it twice in this video, but you would hardly know that he did, because the Spurs video crew failed to show a replay of either one. I think their priorities might be a little messed up over there. When an Australian guy dunks it, you know that the Australians are…

Lance Stephenson 17 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (11/23/2014)

“Dear LeBron, I hope that this letter finds you in good spirits. I know both of our new teams are struggling at the moment, but what’s life without a little adversity? I know you don’t consider me a friend, and I certainly feel the same way, so you may wonder why this letter arrived in…

Robert Sacre 13 Points Full Highlights (11/23/2014)

After being single-handedly responsible for the Mavericks scoring seven points in five seconds, I had come up with a new nickname for Robert Sacre. Wait for it… Robert Suckre. Please hold your applause. While that may have been a relevant nickname at the time, circumstances outside of my control have caused it to become obsolete…

Chris Kaman 16 Points Full Highlights (11/23/2014)

Older (and newer) basketball fans often bemoan the lack of post-play in the modern NBA. Then, they turn around and criticize the few players who do attempt post moves, player like Al Jefferson and Chris Kaman, for being too inefficient. Well, duh, of course they’re inefficient! That’s the whole point. Going one-on-one against someone, with…

Marreese Speights 28 Points Full Highlights (11/23/2014)

The lexicon of basketball is ever-growing. From early entries like “layup” to recent neologisms like “3 and D guy”, the vocabulary of the game is both a look into the past and a snapshot of the present. Humbly, I’d like to present my own term for inclusion into the Dictionary of Ball: “Speightsing” This daring…
