John Collins 19 Points/3 Threes Full Highlights (4/3/2018)

I wish my mom would give me encouragement in my endeavors. Seeing John Collins’ mother cheering her son on arose within me some weird (no, not in that way you perv) emotions. Sadness. Confusion. Regret. The only thing she knows about my internet activities is that I tried to be an Instagram model for a…

John Collins 21 Points Full Highlights (3/15/2018)

John Collins is one of the brighter spots, maybe the brightest, amidst the endless tapestry of black that is the Hawks’ season. He appears as a small bit of medium gray, nearly indetectible surrounded as he is by the void that consumes Atlanta. There is hope with Collins. There may be smaller amounts of hope…

How do real-life Southerners feel about John Collins’ nickname of “John the Baptist”? On one hand, it’s a hella rad nickname because it references Collins’ proclivity for putting dudes on posters with his wiry, high-flying whamjams. One the other hand, it trivializes an important figure of Christianity, sort of an implicit “Christianity’s not that important…

John Collins 18 Points Full Highlights (12/20/2017)

I think I’ve brought up this point before about a million times, but I just can’t get over the fact that this draft class makes last year’s draft class look like absolute 100% total horse plops. John Collins is averaging 11/7 on 60% in a backup role for the Hawks, and he is not even…

John “Collins Card” Collins with yet another productive game off the bench. There’s a lot of rookies doing amazing things right now, but I feel like he should be getting mentioned as well. It doesn’t help that he’s on the Hawks or that he’s just a normal American or that his dad is probably not…

Among actual players who play actual minutes, the only ones with a higher offensive rebound percentage than John Collins are Drummond, Poeltl, Ed Davis, Kanter, and Mejri. Man… I expected that list to be a lot more impressive for some reason. Guess there just aren’t very many dominant rebounders in the league anymore, either that…

John Collins 16 Points/4 Dunks Full Highlights (11/10/2017)

I truly think that right now, the thing holding John Collins back from greater things, or at least more general hype, is his name. John Collins. I’m trying to think of a boringer name, and it’s hard. There are definitely no first names as lame as John. Collins isn’t as lame as like “Williams” but…

John Collins 14 Points Full Highlights (10/23/2017)

If I’m gonna keep doing John Collins highlights, I’m gonna need more midrange jimbos. A lot more. Wasn’t that one of the things he was supposed to be able to do coming into the league? Even if it wasn’t, I bet he shoots them ALL the time in practice, so no reason he can’t be…

If there is one word to describe John Collins tonight, it would be “active”. That’s right, no jokes here, there were so many funny words I could’ve put there instead but instead of being funny and wry I’m going to pummel you with hard-hitting analysis. Ready? This is some real powerful stuff. Don’t go into…

John Collins 14 Points Hawks Debut Full Highlights (10/18/2017)

Yes, there are tons of performances that happened tonight that are way better than this. You think I don’t know that? I looked at these god-damn boxscores and basically had a panic attack. But the reality of the situation is that right now I’m most interested in players I’ve never seen before. I don’t care…
