Evan Fournier 19 Points/4 Threes Full Highlights (1/9/2014)

My feeble knowledge of France is entirely sourced from the “Madeline” series of children’s books. It’s been a while since I read them, actually, so some of the details are a little fuzzy. Here’s a rundown of what I have figured out about the mysterious European country: -There are a lot of mischievous little girls…

Channing Frye 22 Points/5 Threes Full Highlights (1/8/2014)

I already detailed in a previous description how Channing Frye’s heart was cruelly stepped upon by a heartless wench named Clara, and how the succubus herself contributed to Channing’s health issues. But that doesn’t explain the sudden flareup of heart troubles that he experienced before the 2012-2013 season, troubles that kept him relegated to the…

Jonas Valanciunas 16 Points/4 Dunks Full Highlights (1/8/2014)

Lots of NBA players have a signature move. Dirk’s Fadeaway. Kanter’s up-and-under. Curry’s chuck-a-horrible-contested-three. They can go to those things if their team needs points. Jonas Valanciunas had the “mini-pump-fake-at-the-elbow-hope-defender-bites-if-not-do-it-again-and-drive-for-a-dunk”. One of the first highlights I ever saw of him in his rookie year was this exact move. Though I kind of feel like its…

Anthony Davis 21 Points/1 Three Full Highlights (1/8/2014)

“And there’s another three for Anthony Davis.” You’d better get used to hearing that phrase. We all know he’s been working on the shot since he flaunted it at that USA showcase or whatever that thing in Vegas was. I understand why he would want to add it to his game; I love shooting threes…

Jan Vesely 12 Points Full Highlights (1/8/2014)

I’ve been watching too many Wizards games for my own good. Why do I subject myself to it? Because anything seems good compared to watching the Bucks. Anyway, I’ve noticed that the Wizards are making a concerted effort to play Jan Vesely. He’s always looked good in Summer League, even hitting jumpers, and apparently he…

Pero Antic Career High 16 Points Full Highlights (1/8/2014)

With Al Horford sidelined temporarily with a torn boob, the Hawks really needed someone to step up and take up the space on the court where he used to reside. But instead of getting a guy like Horford they got a guy named Pero Antic. He likes to shoot threes. And he’s Macedonian. But don’t…

Bradley Beal 21 Points Full Highlights (1/7/2014)

Bradley Beal heard a knock at his door. He looked up from the letter he was penning in surprise. “Who could my visitor be? I am not anticipating the company of any of my friends. Perhaps it is that beggar Vesely, beseeching me for scraps from my table. What a detestable fellow that man is.”…

David Lee 22 Points/18 Rebounds Full Highlights (1/7/2014)

It seems like the Warriors should be better than they actually are. They have good players at every starter spot. So why are they only recently not a .500-ish team? David Lee doesn’t play any defense, but that’s not really the problem. He’s got Bogut backing him up so he can do whatever he wants…

Randy Foye 23 Points/5 Assists/7 Threes Full Highlights (1/7/2014)

Here’s a rule that I came up with: if a player shoots below 40% over the course of a full season in the modern NBA, even if it’s just once in a career, they can no longer be considered a “good” player. No matter what their accomplishments are in other areas of the game, they…

Kendall Marshall 18 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (1/7/2014)

“Kendall Marshall can’t shoot” is all I keep hearing from internet commentators. At what point do we just accept that maybe he can shoot a little bit despite his lack of lift and wonked out form? He’s now shooting 56 percent from the field, and while that number will go down, he has shown at…
