J.R. Smith 20 Points Full Highlights (5/1/2018)

Pretty much the whole story around the Cavaliers’ first-round defeat of the Pacers was that LeBron James was doing literally everything while his teammates picked their noses and looked dumbly as the ball whizzed by their motionless hands. These guys read the media, they know what’s being said about them, and I bet when Zach…

“Hey, I just realized, you play for the Cavaliers, right?” J.R. Smith’s waiter said as he set the basketball player’s food down in front of him. “Yeah, that’s me,” J.R. replied, easily adopting the joking, friendly attitude that he reserved for fans. “When you didn’t recognize me right away I thought I would finally get…

J.R. Smith 19 Points Full Highlights (3/3/2018)

An hour before their scheduled team practice, Cavaliers assistant coach Damon Jones cautiously approached J.R. Smith in the locker room. “Hey J.R. What’s up?” J.R. carefully slurped his spoonful of piping-hot chicken noodle soup before answering. It had just been taken out of an extra-long cycle in the microwave, so he had to be very…

J.R. Smith 18 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (2/13/2018)

TNT has tried to sabotage my videos in the past by providing poor camera angles on shots, or by failing to provide adequate replays, or by coating their broadcasts with a thick layer of commentarial incompetence that no amount of creative editing can overcome. However, this latest attack on my ability to make highlight videos…

J.R. Smith 20 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (2/7/2018)

You can tell the Cavaliers commentators are desperate for any signs of life out of the Cavaliers in general and J.R. Smith in particular. They’ve watched their team completely implode, they know the drama that surrounds LeBron and his cadre of overpaid role-player teammates, and they’ve sat through a few seasons of Smith bricks. Their…

J.R. Smith 20 Points Full Highlights (6/8/2016)

What the heck is up with these god-damn opposite-angle replays that they keep showing during these playoffs? All it does is confuse me. Like, I know what I just saw. I should, because I just saw it! I don’t want my memory of what I saw tainted because some screwball in the truck thought it…

J.R. Smith 24 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (4/9/2016)

It used to be that J.R. Smith was the clown of the league. He would make off-color tweets about girls trying to get his pipe and he would take pictures of some chick’s huge butt to post on Twitter and he would get his brother signed by teams for no reason and his family members…

J.R. Smith 26 Points Full Highlights (11/23/2015)

I don’t get to make Cavaliers highlights as much as I used to, ever since they got a big three and said big three started doing all the scoring. I have to be content with the occasional Delly or J.R. Spliff highlights, maybe some James Jones thrown in on the side. Never Tristan Thompson, though….

J.R. Smith 19 Points/1 Lost Championship Full Highlights (6/16/2015)

DownToBuck has a bedtime. It is a very important bedtime. However, watching the last game of the Finals is more important, so I stayed up. And then J.R. Smith came along and made the game take like ten minutes longer than it needed to. Now I’m all groggy this morning. If the last minute of…
