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…

James Ennis 16 Points Full Highlights (12/21/2014)

If your MVP superstar GOAT-candidate player flees your team in free agency, leaving behind two other all-stars who maybe aren’t quite as good, what do you do to maintain fanbase enthusiasm? The Heat knew the answer: stack your team with an infusion of dynamic young talent that you can develop. First piece in that puzzle?…

Justin Hamilton 10 Points Full Highlights (12/14/2014)

“Ten points isn’t really enough for highlights,” the inner voice says to me as I scroll through all of the day’s performers on Basketball-Reference. “Find somebody else.” Then, before I can stop it, even before I realize what my own hands are doing, I’m gathering clips from the Heat-Bulls game. “What are you doing, man?”…

Josh McRoberts 14 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (12/7/2014)

Josh “McRawbits” McRoberts isn’t doing all that well since he left Charlotte. Meanwhile, Charlotte isn’t doing that well since McRoberts left them. Was not re-signing McBobs this year’s biggest offseason blunder? Not quite. Let’s take a look at some bigger ones: -Pistons didn’t trade Greg Monroe, now SVG plays Josh Smith at PF and brings…

Shabazz Napier 11 Points Full Highlights (11/17/2014)

I am not a very qualified person to write this description. I know very little of this enigmatic “Shabazz” character. The Heat drafted him so that LeBron would stick around, and we know how that worked out, so in his first major task Napier failed miserably. That’s not a good portent. Other than that tidbit…

Mario Chalmers 23 Points/11 Assists Full Highlights (11/14/2014)

“Dad, I’m pretty sure this isn’t how they play basketball in the NBA.” Mario’s dad stopped playing defense and looked at his son. “Yes it is. Sure, they use something called a ‘ball’ instead of this seal head, but the idea is the same.” “No, dad. I’m talking about how hard you’re fouling me.” “Rio,…

Shawne Williams 21 Points/5 Threes Full Highlights (11/14/2014)

“I can’t believe this,” Shawne muttered, lying on the couch of his cheaply-rented apartment. “I come all the way to Miami only to find out that there’s no LeBron James.” He continued to stew in his misery until his ringing phone disturbed him. “Hello, this is Shawne,” he answered. “Yo Shawne, it’s Luol,” responded the…
