This is continuation of my OFFICIAL REASONS TO LOVE KHRIS MIDDLETON POWER RANKINGS. We resume the list at reason #8. 8. 50/40/90 CLUB Okay, so Middleton wasn’t quite in the 50/40/90 club (50% FG, 40% 3P, 90% FT), but he was literally as close to being in the club as it’s possible to get without…

Kristaps Porzingis All 85 Midrange Jumpers Full Highlights (2019-20 Season Jumperilation)

The field of highlights theory is only just emerging as an area worthy of scholarly pursuit, but its basic tenets are already well-established. In highlights theory: a highlight video serves two purposes: 1. To entertain the viewer 2. To bring attention to the unique or exemplary skills of the player in question The ideal highlight…

Rui Hachimura All 49 Midrange Jumpers Full Highlights (2019-20 Season Jumperilation)

Through the first month of the season, as I watched Rui Hachimura humiliate defenders again and again with his hesi pull-up midrange jimbos (you won’t know what I just said unless you REALLY hoop), my enthusiasm for a Rui Hachimura midrange-ilation was increasing by the day. Hachimura wasn’t on pace to break any records or…

Carmelo Anthony All 125 Midrange Jumpers Full Highlights (2019-20 Season Jumperilation)

Carmelo Anthony was walking through a narrow alley in a bid to find a quicker route to his parked car. He knew that it wasn’t a good idea to take a solitary walk through an unfamiliar area at night, but he was big enough that nobody would mess with him. Hopefully. The distant streetlight at…

Markelle Fultz All 87 Midrange Jumpers Full Highlights (2019-20 Season Jumperilation)

Markelle Fultz looked down at his hands. They were bloody. That was to be expected after one had committed acts which Markelle had just committed.

DTB’s Top 100 Midrange Jumpers of the 2019-20 NBA Season (2019-20 Season Jumperilation)

Devin Booker All 176 Midrange Jumpers Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Jumperilation)

“Dear Robert, As you must surely be aware of, your tenure as owner of the Phoenix Suns has not been without controversy. Even casual fans are aware of your…how shall I put it delicately…frugality when it comes to spending on the team. Despite this, pressure from the public and from other NBA owners has not…

Collin Sexton All 132 Midrange Jumpers Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Jumperilation)

The decision to create a Collin Sexton midrange-ilation was pretty much made by month two of his rookie campaign. His scoring game up to that point seemed entirely reliant on the midrange shot. Crowning him as the next Chris Paul would have been premature – their similarities began and ended with the ability to smoothly…
