Avery Bradley 23 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (3/19/2014)

Rajon Rondo has returned, and his pure point guard play has almost erased the pain of the “Avery Bradley at point” era of the Celtics. Was it the worst era in the history of this storied franchise? Probs. Avery Bradley can now return to what he does best: playing defense and shooting tons of bad…

Kelly Olynyk 16 Points Full Highlights (3/17/2014)

New nominee for worst beard in the NBA: Kelly Olynyk Holy crap. That’s some high-school level stuff right there. This thing is a patch of translucent pubes jutting from the end of his chin. In general a fair-haired dude like Kelly shouldn’t be attempting facial hair until it grows thick. That goes for everybody, actually….

Jeff Green 27 Points/5 Threes Full Highlights (3/9/2014)

Whistling a made-up tune, Jeff Green once again consulted the cookbook. “Thinly” slice the potatoes? His hands were so huge that he doubted that he would end up with anything other than gigantic chunks, but he pressed onwards. His mom wanted him to learn how to cook, and by golly, he was going to learn…

Kelly Olynyk 18 Points Full Highlights (3/9/2014)

Kelly Olynyk sat staidly at his keyboard, nestled in a corner of his cramped studio apartment. His rookie salary easily allowed for nicer accommodations, but he preferred the tight space. Not as much room for unnecessary possessions. He was playing a melody that had appeared in his mind during the night. Playing, tweaking, repeating. Fiddling…

Kelly Olynyk 19 Points/3 Threes Full Highlights (3/5/2014)

Kelly Olynyk showed off some sick post moves in the summer league. And, as far as I can tell, hasn’t successfully performed them more than a half-dozen times this entire season, mainly because of a paucity of attempts. I demand answers. Why isn’t he getting post ups? Is it because he’s white? Is it because…

Jerryd Bayless 29 Points Full Highlights (2/26/2014)

Jerryd Bayless has not been everything Celtics fans hoped for when they traded Courtney Lee for him. He’s had some okay games, sure, but for the most part he hasn’t provided the scoring punch that the Celtics desired. Maybe he just needs to start. Tonight was his first start as a Celtic, and he took…

Kelly Olynyk 21 Points Full Highlights (2/24/2014)

Kelly Olynyk has quietly been putting together some good games recently. Who cares if the Celtics are losing all of them? It’s not his fault. He’s just a rookie. He’s playing his heart out. Meanwhile vets like Jeff Green and Gerald Wallace are sleepwalking through the season. They’re the real culprits. It concerns me to…

Kelly Olynyk 14 Points Full Highlights (2/10/2014)

Kelly Olynyk and Jared Sullinger. Next great bigman tandem in the NBA? Possibly! When both of them can shoot threes and post up and rebound, I’d say you’re in pretty good shape. Just give them a few years to develop fully. I fully expect Kelly to be the next Dirk. And Jared is the Barkley….

Chris Johnson 14 Points/4 Threes Full Highlights (2/9/2014)

Chris Johnson stood in the checkout line, filling out a form for the supermarket’s loyalty program. The store was convenient to his house, so he figured that a few dollars of savings here and there would pile up in the long run. When he handed back the form, the checkout clerk’s eyes grew wide when…

Jared Sullinger Career High 31 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2014)

Jared Sullinger and DeMarcus Cousins found themselves matched up on the battlefield, and fought to an even draw: 31 points and 16 rebounds for each. I don’t even know how to search basketball-reference for other times that has happened. Maybe if I had direct SQL query access. Anyway, yeah, Jared is looking like a legit…
