Doug McDermott 21 Points Full Highlights (11/27/2018)

The term has been used in the past I’m pretty sure, but I’m not aware of any current NBA duo (or WWE tag-team… team) using the nickname “The Ivory Towers”. So I’m just going to go ahead and give the devastating combo of Doug McDermott and Domantas Sabonis that collective moniker. It’s perfect, because they…

Doug McDermott 21 Points Full Highlights (11/26/2018)

Indiana is the fifth team in three years for Doug McDermott. Normally a journeyman like that doesn’t get a long contract, but the Pacers apparently liked him enough to give him a 3-year deal for 22 million dollars. 7,333,334 dollars the first two years, and a significant downgrade to 7,333,333 dollars the last year. Kind…

Doug McDermott 15 Points/2 Blocks Full Highlights (11/21/2018)

This video contains Doug McDermott’s first block of the season. That’s not surprising. All the NBA draft intelligentsia knew that his abysmal steal+block numbers in college weren’t likely to improve in the NBA. McDermott had a chance to pad his defensive stats against 6’0″ white dudes from the Buddlechuck Backwoods Baptist Bible College basketball team,…

Doug McDermott 20 Points Full Highlights (3/10/2018)

It will take a lot to get me off the Doug McDermott bandwagon. How could a Jimmer Fredette with actual NBA size not be a productive player? That is my reasoning, and maybe it’s super flawed, I don’t care, until he’s washed up and playing for peanuts in the Philippines I will maintain that he…

Doug McDermott 15 Points Full Highlights (2/26/2018)

I really love the idea of Doug McDermott. I was led astray by his predraft workout video, but even in a vacuum he just looks like a good NBA player. He looks great until you actually watch him play. His shortcomings soon become very apparent, but you know what, I don’t care. And I bet…

Doug McDermott 23 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2017)

When you see Doug McDermott highlights, what kind of shots do you expect are contained therein? Don’t answer dunks. If you answered dunks, either you’ve never seen him play or you saw one highlight of him dunking and got really confused. However, if you answered layups, you’d be wrong, but also right, because this video…

Doug McDermott 16 Points Full Highlights (11/20/2017)

Do the New York Knicks commentators even call Doug McDermott by his nickname “Doug McBuckets”? In the few Knicks games that I’ve watched, I don’t think I’ve ever heard McDermott referred to in that way. All I hear is Clyde Frazier saying “MacDermott” over and over because they want to play up his good-natured illiteracy…

Doug McDermott 20 Points Full Highlights (11/7/2017)

The Knicks are winning games. I don’t know how they’re doing it, presumably some sort of witchcraft is involved, but it’s happening right now and we can’t ignore it. Eventually they’ll have to learn how to win games where they’re not down by a bajillion points in the fourth quarter, maybe by playing better in…

Doug McDermott 21 Points Full Highlights (3/18/2017)

The Thunder traded for Doug McDermott to try and make up for their gigantic blunder of trading Ersan Ilyasova early in the season. I don’t know why they traded away one of their only outside shooting threats, but at least they saw the error of their ways and acquired a comparable white long-bomber. At least,…

There is no reason to discuss anything about or anyone on the Thunder unless it is as it relates to Russell Westbrook’s quest to average a triple-double. Has there ever been a team where one player so thoroughly dominates his team’s narrative? Even Jordan had Pippen. Westbrook has… Oladipo? And Doug “Dougie McThunderBuckets” McDermott. McDermott…
