Nikola Pekovic 27 Points Full Highlights (1/18/2014)

Screw the Timberwolves. Apparently they’ve sapped Ricky Rubio of his love for the game of basketball. Next thing you know Nikola Pekovic is gonna come in to practice and say “I don’t really feel like adding any more skulls to my skull pile today”. This cannot be allowed to happen. Luckily for us (or perhaps…

Nicolas Batum 21 Points/4 Dunks Full Highlights (1/18/2014)

How are the Trailblazers so good? All they did in the offseason was replace JJ Hickson with Robin Lopez. I get that Hickson wasn’t really a center and that having a true center in his place is better, but still. Maybe it’s because Damian Lillard graduated from being the next Brandon Jennings to being the…

Josh McRoberts 17 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/17/2014)

Craziest stat of the year: Josh McRoberts is third in assist-to-turnover ratio, after Chris Paul and Jose Calderon. The next 18 players on the list are all point guards. He’s like LeBron without the turnovers. I don’t even know. He didn’t show above-average playmaking ability at any point in his career up until now. And…

Al Jefferson 30 Points/16 Rebounds Full Highlights (1/17/2014)

Al Jefferson is a top-five offensive center of the past decade. There. I said it. It’s out there in the open for you to accept or reject, but if you choose to reject it, you would be incorrect. Just looking at pure offensive skill, and ignoring the opposite side of the floor, there aren’t many…

Klay Thompson 26 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (1/17/2014)

The Golden State Warriors are a good team this year. But are they contenders? No. Not until they replace Mark Jackson with someone who can, you know, coach. Instead of just being a motivator. Think how good they could be with an offensive system that is more than “have Curry run around like a maniac”….

Shane Larkin Career High 18 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/17/2014)

“Hey, rook, we got a few questions for you.” It was Vince Carter and Sam Dalembert. Shane answered warily, “Yeah, sure. But this isn’t going to end with me dancing the Macarena naked in the shower with everybody filming me, is it? I still remember when you made Gal ask strangers on the street for…

Kelly Olynyk Career High 25 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (1/17/2014)

“Olynyk looks like he’s playing in the Summer League” Oh yes, the NBA Summer League. Where NBA-starved fans gaze hungrily upon the new crop of rookies for the first time. Where one slick move turns into a multitude of hype-filled social media posts. Where the hopes of the faithful are raised to new heights, and…

Ryan Kelly Career High 20 Points Full Highlights (1/17/2014)

Let’s play a game: name a player, and then take that player’s last name and use it as the first name of another player, and continue in perpetuity. Let’s see how far we get! Ryan Kelly Kelly Olynyk … Screw this game. This game sucks. What doesn’t suck is Ryan Kelly’s performance against the Celtics…

Serge Ibaka 21 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (1/16/2014)

No, Serge Ibaka, you do NOT get to do Mutombo’s finger wag after you reject a shot. No one but Dikembe himself has that privilege. Not even Michael Jordan. Come up with your own thing. Or, better yet, just run back up the court like nothing happened. No one likes a showboat. I hate to…
