Marcin Gortat 14 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (4/19/2017)

Normally when I make a Marcin Gortat vid, it shows a lot of Gortat doing his own thing. Post moves. Or, at least, him making a few nice mini-jumpers. Not so in this video. He has one iso post-up, and one mini-jumper, and then he’s spoonfed by John Wall for the rest of his buckets….

Marcin Gortat 21 Points Full Highlights (2/2/2017)

Marcin Gortat’s minutes are up this year, but his scoring is down. Way down. His rebounds increased with his minutes, but his shot attempts did not. What’s the deal? That’s not how things are supposed to work. More minutes = more buckets. I’d consider that truism to be a fundamental part of basketball. Without it,…

Marcin Gortat 19 Points/4 Dunks/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/6/2017)

Marcin Gortat just tied the season record for most field goals in a game without a miss. I’m going to tell you something: Gortat might not be quite as good as Rudy Gobert or Dwight Howard (the two other players who have gone 9-for-9 this season), but he is way more Polish, and in the…

Marcin Gortat 21 Points Full Highlights (12/19/2016)

I don’t know who Polish people are going to project their nationalism onto once Marcin Gortat is out of the league. Granted, he’s only 32, so the Polish Hammer has a few more years left, but is there any young Polish talent in the pipeline? Don’t even talk to me about Olek Czyz. Similarly refrain…

Marcin Gortat 21 Points Full Highlights (2/23/2016)

Marcin Gortat was an old rookie, so it might catch you off guard that he is now 32 years old. His time as a useful player will soon come to an end. Before we know it, the Polish Hammer will no longer be forcing his large and meaty Polish sausage down the throats of defenders….

Marcin Gortat 22 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (2/18/2016)

The All-Star break gets longer every year. When I started doing these videos, I think it was only about a weeklong break from normal basketball. It’s been creeping up over time, to the point where, this year, it was a whole three-and-a-half MONTHS without regular-season action. What are the players even doing during all that…

Marcin Gortat 27 Points Full Highlights (12/21/2015)

Out of respect for the territory of a certain Polish highlight compiler, I have refrained from doing all that many Marcin Gortat videos the past few years. I only made a single one all of last season, because I am respectful and honorable man. That policy is no longer in effect, starting now. From now…

Marcin Gortat 18 Points Full Highlights (12/12/2014)

“Hey pretty lady, want some of my homemade Polish kielbasa?” asked Marcin Gortat, approaching a randomly-selected brunette woman at the bar. “Ew, no, jerk,” responded the woman, making a disgusted face. As Marcin turned away, disappointed but not deterred from his mission, she muttered, “Men are such pigs.” There was another woman a few seats…

Marcin Gortat Career High 31 Points/16 Rebounds Full Highlights (5/13/2014)

What just happened? I am stunned. The ball clearly went off Jackson. Wait. Wrong game. Messed up my notecards again. Off to the archives! Okay. I’m back. I really should upgrade my technology. What just happened? I am stunned. Marcin Gortat just had the game of his life against an all-star center (heh) with his…

Marcin Gortat 21 Points Full Highlights (5/7/2014)

Marcin Gortat is not having very good matchup luck in these playoffs. First he has to go up against DPOY Joakim Noah. After dispatching him, he now gets to face the former DPOY Roy Hibbert. Talk all you want about the recent failures of Hibbert, but the fact remains that he is 7-3 and can…
