Malik Monk 20 Points Full Highlights (2/1/2019)

I don’t even know exactly what happened at the end of this Hornets-Grizzlies game, some bad stuff involving the refs, but why do Grizzlies fans care? They want to be losing at this point, so is it so bad that the refs blatantly cost them the game? No. It isn’t. Under a utilitarian model of…

Malik Monk 24 Points Full Highlights (1/8/2019)

Malik Monk had nineteen points in the fourth quarter of this game. That’s a good thing. Malik Monk also played the entire fourth quarter, and during that time, the Clippers scored 42 points. That’s a bad thing. I think those two statements, when combined, form the essence of Monk. He can score, but he’s not…

Malik Monk 21 Points Full HIghlights (12/31/2018)

I would like to apologize to Steve Clifford. I treated him unfairly, thinking that he was blatantly holding down Malik Monk (who I perceived to be a grade-A talent) to further his own nefarious goals of promoting Julyan Stone (the Chris Paul stopper). I was mad on all of Charlotte’s behalf, struggling to understand why…

Malik Monk 19 Points Full Highlights (12/15/2018)

Whenever I see a player fall into the trap of “do a bunch of meaningless dribble moves and then jack an 18-foot jumper” I despair for them. Maybe Malik Monk was just trying to catch the eye of Lance Stephenson, but getting a good shot for your team is infinitely more important than trying to…

Malik Monk 26 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (11/25/2018)

I am starting to wonder if it really was Steve Clifford holding Malik Monk down or if it was, in fact, the badness of Malik Monk holding Malik Monk down. Because last time I checked, the Hornets had a coach whose name wasn’t Steve Clifford, Monk’s minutes are way down from the beginning of the…

Malik Monk 21 Points Full Highlights (11/1/2018)

Does Malik Monk look way older this year to anyone else? Last year he looked like a kid, running around having fun playing his favorite game. Now he looks like a grizzled vet with a wrinkly face and dour demeanor. Maybe I’m just misremembering what he looked like last year and am assigning appearance characteristics…

Malik Monk 20 Points Full Highlights (10/30/2018)

Do you ever wonder to yourself, while trying to get to sleep at night, what it would look like if someone took Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis and put them into the same body? I think about it. I think about it a lot. And last night, while I was thinking about it, it came…

Malik Monk 18 Points Full Highlights (10/17/2018)

This game was looking really good for the Bucks. Everything was clicking, Hornets were bricking, clock was ticking. Then Kemba Walker went off for 40 points, but that wasn’t even the problem, because it was obvious from the opening tip that he was going to do that. The real problem was Malik Monk fully casting…

Malik Monk 22 Points Full Highlights (4/8/2018)

I’m trying to imagine that average sound made by Hornets fans after Malik Monk had yet another good game in direct defiance of Steve Clifford. There’s probably a lot of exasperated sigh in there, some grumbling, sarcastic hand clapping, some head-shaking which makes a slight whooshing noise, “ugh”, “damn”, “choke on my chode Clifford” is…

Malik Monk Career High 26 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (4/6/2018)

Not only is this a career-high in points for Malik Monk, it also ties a career-high in assists. I felt like putting “Career High” twice in the video title made it a little long, so be aware that the adjective “Career High” modifies both subjects. Okay? Just so you know what you’re getting into as…
