Nate Robinson 25 Points/7 Threes/6 Assists Full Highlights (3/30/2013)

Basketball is too height-based, with tall scrubs getting a pass because of their “physical tools” while short scrubs wash out of the league. So I’m going to form a basketball league where the maximum height is 6’2”. That way Nate Robinson could play his natural position (shooting guard) without being at a half-foot height disadvantage,…

Nate Robinson 34 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (3/18/2013)

Nate Robinson is a nice reminder that us normal sized people can have a shot in the NBA. Until you remember that he is an elite physical specimen, probably capable of playing in any sport that he wanted to. He does demonstrate a bit of “little-man” syndrome on the court, as you would expect. He’s…

Carlos Boozer 21 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (3/15/2013)

It is my impression that Bulls fans aren’t very happy with Carlos Boozer’s play their team. But you take a look at his stats and think “Wow what are they complaining about, the Booze Cruise is putting up really nice numbers!”. But stats don’t tell the whole story. The story that goes something like this:…

Daequan Cook 19 Points (and a dunk) Full Highlights (2/7/2013)

Okay, this is weird. Coach Thibodeau is well-known for not utilizing his bench players effectively, and Daequan Cook is one of the victims of Thiobdeau’s schemes. But in this blowout loss against the Nuggets, Rip Hamilton only played 17 minutes, and with Marco Belinelli not playing, Mr. Third-Stringer actually got to play meaningful minutes for…

Marco Belinelli 24 Points Full Highlights (2/4/2013)

Marco Belinelli is a warrior with a heart of steel. Early in tonight’s game against the Pacers, he landed on Orlando Johnson’s (scrubby) foot after taking a three. Not only did he make the shot, he made the ensuing free throw as well on a bum ankle. He then returned to the game to score…

Kirk Hinrich 22 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (1/21/2013)

Kirk Hinrich is not really filling Derrick Rose’s shoes very well. Can he even dunk? Derrick Rose dunked all the time, Kirk, come on man can’t you just dunk it a few times? Look at Nate that guy is like 5 feet tall and he can do it. Just try harder. I guess we can’t…

Luol Deng 33 Points Full Highlights (1/11/2013)

Luol “Based” Deng is probably getting tired of playing 40 minutes per night. Being ridden harder than 2005-era Kobe has got to have some negative effects on one’s performance. It’s really obvious when Deng staggers over to the bench in the middle of a play and passes out into the tray of Gatorade cups. But…

Taj Gibson 21 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (1/2/2013)

Tom Thibodeau needs to loosen up his rotations a bit. His 40 minute-per-game center Joakim Noah was out with the flu, so what does he do? He plays the backup 45 minutes! While barely playing the only other big man on the roster. It’s madness. But I’m sure Taj didn’t care that much, and he…

Omer Asik 20 Points/18 Rebounds Full Highlights (12/25/2012)

Omer Asik is that kid in middle school whose mouth was always hanging open. Walking in the hallways, maw agape, like there’s no way he can get enough air otherwise. Working on homework, brow furrowed in concentration, pie-hole at maximum aperture so as to better power his brain. Most of those kids grow out of…

Nate Robinson 27 Points Full Highlights (12/25/2012)

Nate Robinson is proof positive that normal-sized people can succeed in the NBA. You only need to have freakishly large muscles, superhuman athleticism and a pure jumper. However, being a normal-sized person in the NBA has its disadvantages; everybody considers you extremely short even though you’re taller than them; you will only ever dunk in…
