Jahlil Okafor 18 Points Full Highlights (1/24/2019)

Jahlil “Jah Rule” Okafor appeared to have a good game here. He was nine of twelve from the field, and he got those points opportunistically, rather than doing lumbering Al Jefferson impersonations all over the place. He also had eight rebounds (good) to go with zero assists, zero steals, and zero blocks (not so good,…

Jahlil Okafor 17 Points/6 Blocks Full Highlights (1/23/2019)

If I went back in time and told the past version of DTB who was alive in 2016 that, in the year 2019, I would not only be making a Jahlil Okafor 17-point highlight video, but I would be excited about it, the past version of me would laugh in my face. Straight up laughter….

Jahlil Okafor 20 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (1/21/2019)

I really wanted to enjoy these Jahlil Okafor highlights. I really, honestly, truly did. But I can’t. It’s not Okafor’s fault in any way. He played the same way that he did in Philadelphia, a style which was somehow aesthetic, clumsy, powerful, skilled, plodding, and polished, all combined into one unholy morass. The basketball part…

Nikola Mirotic 29 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (1/16/2019)

How often do you think Nikola Mirotic and Julius Randle get into fights? Keep in mind that Mirotic has previously shown a willingness to spar with other power forwards who he deems to be in competition with, even if those bouts didn’t always end in a favorable outcome for the Montenegrin Monster. Mirotic and Randle…

Frank Jackson 19 Points Full Highlights (1/9/2019)

I am now thinking about how satisfying/unsatisfying a highlight video comprised only of 19 Frank Jackson free throws would be. We were pretty close in this one, with 7 free throws alongside only 4 buckets, but still far from a wholly free-throw video. I mean, 19 points just from the stripe would be a really…

Frank Jackson 17 Points Full Highlights (1/7/2019)

Summer League seems like so long ago now. There was a lot of hype going on then, maybe not as much as the year previous (I’m still recovering from the Lonzo hype), but everyone was getting, as usual, super excited about marginal talents. Talents like, you guessed it, Frank Jackson! I’m pretty sure that he…

Elfrid Payton 25 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (1/2/2019)

You know, with that ridiculous hair precipice gone, it’s a lot easier for me to treat Elfrid Payton as a serious NBA player worthy of serious consideration and serious opinions. Back when he had that “poodle sucked through a vacuum” look going, I couldn’t take him seriously. Now my opinions of him, which were previously…

Darius Miller 21 Points Full Highlights (12/31/2018)

Now seems like a good time to say that I’m sorry. That’s what the new year is about, right? Atoning for past sins with promises of doing better now that the proverbial slate is proverbially clean? It seems like I’ve been having to do a lot of apologizing lately (though I want to go on…

E’Twaun Moore 21 Points Full Highlights (12/29/2018)

E’Twaun Moore was in an extended slump for pretty much the entire month of December, and this one good game isn’t enough evidence to say that the slump has definitely concluded. He had one decent game back on December 5th, where he scored seventeen points on sixteen shot attempts, but aside from that game and…

Jahlil Okafor 17 Points Full Highlights (12/19/2018)

Jahlil Okafor subbed out of this game with 5:45 left in the third quarter and the Pelicans leading the Bucks 80-74. He never got back in, and the Pelicans lost 115-123. The Bucks, more specificially Brook Lopez, didn’t know what to do about him. It’s almost like people have gone for so long without seeing…
