Jalen Brunson 20 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (2/5/2020)

The hype that I am detecting (or, more accurately, not detecting) for Jalen Brunson is disturbingly low. There are people on the Mavericks other than Euros, people. You don’t have to be hyped only for Luka Doncic (Euro), Kristaps Porzingis (Euro), Dwight Powell (Euro), Ryan Broekoff (Euro), or J.J. Barea (Mexican Euro). I understand that…

Jalen Brunson 27 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (2/1/2020)

I am of the opinion that the structure and composition of Jalen Brunson’s facial features, a composition which makes him look considerably older than he actually is, literally makes him a better basketball player. Literally. You think I’m joking right now? NEWS FLASH: I’m being serious as heck. Brunson looks into the mirror every morning…

Jalen Brunson 17 Points Full Highlights (1/23/2020)

After a serious period of self-reflection where I sat naked under a tree at a local park for 24 hours straight without drinking or eating anything, I have come to the following conclusion about the nature of my internal thought processes: Since Jalen Brunson is similar to Malcolm Brogdon in name, stature, skin tone, musculature,…

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…

Jalen Brunson 13 Points/11 Assists Full Highlights (12/16/2019)

This is, apparently, what the Mavericks look like when they have a real point guard (“real” implying shortness, which Jalen Brunson definitely has) instead of their normal setup of Luka Doncic doing everything. And it looks good! The Bucks weren’t expecting this to be such a tough game, and it cost them, as the Mavericks…

Jalen Brunson 18 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (12/14/2019)

Luka Doncic getting injured may not be very good for the Mavericks, or for the NBA as a whole, but it is very good for me, because it means that there are tons of extra possessions and touches and shots for Mavericks role players. Doncic is really cool and fun to watch (not like I…

Jalen Brunson 20 Points Full Highlights (3/14/2019)

Jalen Brunson, like almost everyone on the Mavericks, didn’t score any points in the fourth quarter of this game against the Nuggets, a game which ended with them losing by one. Luka Doncic did the bulk of the scoring in the quarter, with 8 points, while Dwight Powell added two free throws. And that was…

Jalen Brunson Career High 34 Points Full Highlights (3/12/2019)

In an alternate universe, this game represents a symbolic passing of the torch. After a short run of exciting play culminating in a disastrous performance against the Spurs, Luka Doncic gets into his own head way too deep and is never the same, eventually retiring after three years to become a hermit in Iceland, but…

Jalen Brunson 18 Points Full Highlights (3/10/2019)

Okay, that’s it. Time to shut down Luka Doncic for the season. I don’t care if the Mavericks (who have a vested interest in pretend he’s healthy so they can sell more tickets) say he’s good to go. If my star rookie felt a pop in his knee and I didn’t even want to win…

Jalen Brunson 18 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (3/8/2019)

As of right now, the SRROTY (second-round rookie of the year) race is down to two players: Jalen Brunson and Mitchell Robinson. Thrown in Rodions Kurucs if you want, but he’s been in a bit of a slumpy-wump recently, while Brunson and Robinson are surging. Both of these true candidates are averaging around 19 minutes…
