Dorian Finney-Smith 16 Points/4 Dunks Full Highlights (1/11/2020)

Dorian “Distributed File System” Finney-Smith has established himself in the league as a defender and low-volume scorer. At least, I assume that he has established himself. Since this is his fourth year in the league, he has two years left on his contract, and I’m not hearing any chatter about him having to play in…

Dwight Powell 19 Points Full Highlights (1/11/2020)

Dwight Powell is one of those players where their perception among their team’s fans and their supposed impact (as suggested by advanced stats) don’t quite match up. Mavericks fans don’t even like him that much. They don’t hate him, and they appreciate what he does for the team, but they are also very aware of…

Boban Marjanovic 12 Points Full Highlights (1/11/2020)

It saddens me that Boban Marjanovic has become a fan-favorite “meme” player, trotted out to the patronizing cheers of the fans, often in blowouts. It seemed like his career trajectory was going to place him squarely in the “legit role-player” category, but it hasn’t turned out that way at all. He was always a fan-favorite,…

Tim Hardaway Jr. 22 Points Full Highlights (1/10/2020)

The trade that sent Tim Hardaway Jr. and Kristaps Porzingis from the Knicks to the Mavericks just looks like a worse and worse deal for the Knicks as time goes on. The Knicks were in a bad situation because Porzingis (or his brother) was demanding a trade, so they had to find a deal where…

Boban Marjanovic 14 Points Full Highlights (1/10/2020)

Rick Carlisle is just the latest in a string of coaches who refuses to use Boban Marjanovic to the fullest extent of his talents, or even give him a consistent role at all. Just take a look at the know-nothings that have been giving him DNP-CD’s for the past four years and tell me it…

Maxi Kleber 18 Points/3 Blocks/1 Fight Full Highlights (1/2/2020)

I feel somewhat guilty for advertising the skirmish Maxi “Maxi Pad” Kleber got into as a “fight”, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that young males (the NBA’s, and thus my, average viewer demographic) LOVE watching fights. NBA videos purporting to contain footage of NBA players fighting routinely draw the…

Tim Hardaway Jr. 25 Points Full Highlights (12/28/2019)

The Warriors and Mavericks apparently just set a record for most combined three-pointers in a game with 46. The Warriors had 18 and the Mavs had 24. D’Angelo Russell contributed the most three-pointers with nine of them (and don’t worry too much about the apparently “serious” injury he suffers in this video; he returned to…

Jalen Brunson 21 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (12/22/2019)

The best thing about carefully-curated highlight videos is that if they are curated hard enough, all sense of context is removed and the only thing that remains is pure basketball. Just balls going in holes. That’s the real, primal reason that these videos get watched; everything else is just our stupid monkey brains trying to…

Tim Hardaway Jr. 27 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (12/20/2019)

If you’ve been following my channel for a while, you know that sometimes I have this little problem where I allow my BHL (Blood Hype Level) to get too high when a player is doing unexpectedly well. Then my BHL crashes and I suffer some type of medical emergency. This pattern repeats itself over and…
