Manu Ginobili 18 Points/1 Dunk Full Highlights (11/10/2017)

“Dear Mr. Ginobili, My name is DownToBuck and I make NBA highlight videos which get uploaded to the popular video-sharing website YouTube.

James Ennis 15 Points/2 Dunks Full Highlights (1/30/2015)

Dear ESPN, If James Ennis dunks the basketball, you need to show replays of the occurrence. I had high hopes after you showed multiple replays of his putback layup, but those hopes were smashed under the relentlessly marching boots of incompetent video work. If you do not show these replays, how am I supposed to…

Goran Dragic 24 Points Full Highlights (12/28/2014)

Hello Goran Dragic, DownToBuck is a man of brevity, so I’m going to get straight to the point: please curtail your attempts to produce facial hair. It just looks straight up bad, sorry homie, gotta call it like I see it. I know having luxurious beards and funky mustaches is the new hip thing for…

Lance Stephenson 17 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (11/23/2014)

“Dear LeBron, I hope that this letter finds you in good spirits. I know both of our new teams are struggling at the moment, but what’s life without a little adversity? I know you don’t consider me a friend, and I certainly feel the same way, so you may wonder why this letter arrived in…

Amar’e Stoudemire 24 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (4/11/2014)

Amar’e Stoudemire, alone in his dingy one-bedroom apartment, sat down at his rickety desk. Even this small amount of movement caused him to wince in pain and clutch his back. The sand in his life’s hourglass was quickly running down to nothing, and there was important business to attend to. “Dear Steve,” he wrote. “I…

An Open Letter to Ramon Sessions: Dear Ramon, My name is DownToBuck. I’m sure you’ve heard of me, but I’m a YouTube highlight maker. I love the Bucks (as you can tell) but I am eager to do highlights of most players in the league, you included! Obviously I wait until a player has a…

Anderson Varejao 18 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (12/4/2013)

Dear LeBron, I hope this letter finds you well. I probably don’t need to hope, though, as things seem to be going swell for you down there in Miami. I’m very happy for your multitude of successes! Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade seem like great teammates. You may already know the reason for my correspondence,…

Terrence Jones 18 Points/10 Rebounds Full Highlights (11/23/2013)

Is Terrence Jones the long-term answer for the Rockets at the power forward position? Ask Omer Asik, Patrick Patterson, Marcus Morris or Donatas Motiejunas, and they’ll tell you the answer: no. The long-term answer was supposed to be Dirk, but that didn’t quite work out. So now McHale plays whomever he can find for the…

Marco Belinelli 16 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (5/10/2013)

Dear Marco, I’m sorry I broke into your house and ate all your Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Everyone makes mistakes. Also, if you could send me your real crostini recipe that would be great. The one I stole from your house sucks. I think you planted it so that I would not discover the genuine recipe….
