Tyler Johnson 18 Points Full Highlights (2/6/2015)

The blown layup is every NBA player’s worst nightmare. An uncontested bunny right at the rim is the easiest shot in the game, so easy that kids on their first day of basketball camp hit at least 50% of them. We can now add Tyler Johnson to the list of players who have missed a…

Tyler Johnson 13 Points Full Highlights (2/1/2015)

Racism has a long and storied history in America. From the Atlantic slave trade to the Jim Crow laws. From the Trail of Tears to the interment of the Japanese. Even today, in this supposedly enlightened area, racism rears still its ugly head, covering our great nation in a shadow of injustice. You have added…

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…

Luol Deng 23 Points Full Highlights (1/23/2015)

We haven’t heard a lot about Luol Deng since he went to the Heat. He’s only the third banana on his new team, a team that is suffering noticeably from the departure of Ray Allen. Another thing causing his relative anonymity this year is his apparent inability to dunk. Dunking is the machinery that drives…

Hassan Whiteside 15 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (1/13/2015)

How long until teams figure Hassan Whiteside out? I don’t know. Teams haven’t yet figured out how to stop DeAndre Jordan from dunking it all the time despite knowing exactly what he’s going to do, so I’d say Whiteside (henceforth referred to as “Upside”) has a while before his effectiveness drops. Upside is the feel-goodiest…

Hassan Whiteside 10 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (1/8/2015)

I have to wonder: when Hassan “Upside” Whiteside went to play in Lebanon, did he bother learning any Arabic at all? I have to imagine that his team provided him with a translator/guide of some sort, since he probably was the highest-profile player that the team had ever been able to sign. I’m guessing no….

Hassan Whiteside 11 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (1/4/2015)

Forget about my “Upside” nickname for Hassan Whiteside. It’s still good, but it has been supplanted by an even better one, one that I can’t even take credit for. “Brightside” Damn. Perfect! Because the Heat are kind of disappointing right now, and aside from Wade and Bosh the only bright side of watching Heat games…

Hassan Whiteside Career High 14 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (1/3/2015)

It’s taken a few years, but a team has finally figured out how much upside Hassan Whiteside has. I probably won’t even use his name to refer to him, just “Upside” will suffice. Upside was cruelly relegated to Lebanon after not getting much burn with the Kings in his first two years. There was a…

Danny Granger 21 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (12/29/2014)

I humbly present to you a new nickname for Danny Granger: “Danny Greenger” Get it? Probably not, this one’s pretty intricate. Your mind, overtaxed already by the stress of reading these words, forced your mouth to utter words. “What does the color green have to do with Danny Granger, DownTobuck?” Nothing, you dimwit. Let me…

Danny Granger 18 Points Full Highlights (12/27/2014)

Normally I would tell you to feel sad while watching this highlight package. That would be the natural emotion to feel when watching a decrepit old man try to do things that once were so easy, but are no longer. Instead, feel happy! Remember the good times you and Danny Granger shared while he was…
