Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2017-18 Season Full-ilation Part IV)

Or: “From the Abyss of Scrubs there is No Escape” The part you’ve been waiting for. The part I’ve been waiting for. The end of the journey. Part 4. This part features the absolute lowest bottom-dwellers of the NBA, the ones for whom each made shot is a discrete event in their memory. These are…

Or: “Scrubbiness Intensifies” I don’t mean to imply that the players depicted in part three of this four-part epic journey through the catacombs of the NBA are “scrubs”. A few of them are, but what I meant was that the players in this part are definitely on a lower tier than the players in part…

Or: “A Dreadful Hodgepodge of Mediocre Role-Players” Part two of my series chronicling every NBA player’s first basket is a slightly dispiriting affair: it starts with role-players who already kinda suck, and it doesn’t really get better. Not much worse, either. You knew this was coming after E’Twaun Moore appeared in the first half of…

Or: “The Players You Think of When You Think ‘NBA Players’” We are gathered here on the day of the start of the 2018-19 NBA preseason, excited to see what is in store. But first, it is time to close the book on the 2017-18 season with what hopefully will become a time-honored tradition: a…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2016-17 Season Full-ilation Part IV)

This is what you’ve been waiting for. The scrubbiest scrubs in the NBA, making shots. Every player shown in this video made 55 field goals or less. Hell yeah. 0:09 – I’m not sure Jeff Withey even touched this ball. 0:52 – This is the first, but not the last, player in the video where…

Part three of my full-ilation is subtitled “entering the void of lesser talent” because we’ve gotten to the point where some of these guys can’t even be called “role players” anymore. Diehard DTB adherents should recognize these dudes, but casual peasants might be confused by some of the names. That’s okay. You’re free to leave…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2016-17 Season Full-ilation Part II)

This is part two of my video series displaying every player’s first converted field goal in the 2016-17 season. Part one was already getting towards some scrubby players by the end; part two continues that downward trend. If you like role-players, part two is pretty much the best part of them all. Just as in…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2016-17 Season Full-ilation Part I)

Welcome to part one of my bold, forward-looking new series where I display the first made shot of every player who converted a field goal this season, starting with the most prolific shot-maker and ending with the most marginal scrub in the NBA. I have dubbed it a “full-ilation”, because what could be more “full”…

2015-16 Season All Field Goals Full Highlights (2015-16 Full-ilation Part 2/447)

I don’t know why everybody thought I was joking when I made part one of my 2015-16 season fullilation. Why would I joke about a project with such a plainly admirable goal? The concept of “full highlights” has been expanded to its fullest possible extent. There could be no highlights more full than a series…

“You’re a good little kitty, aren’t you?” I say to my cat Japurri Purrker, who has crawled into my lap in what is obviously a request for what I like to call “scritchy times”. Japurri lives up to his name as I scritch underneath his chin and behind his ears; he purrs happily and gazes…
