Al-Farouq Aminu 19 Points/10 Rebounds Full Highlights (3/19/2014)

Al-Farouq Aminu was on his way to the locker room when a voice issued forth from a dumpster. “Psst, Al-Farouq! Get in here!” Startled, Al-Farouq looked into the bin to find Anthony Davis huddled in the bottom. “Man, I don’t know if we’re both going to fit in there. You look kinda cramped already,” Al-Farouq…

Austin Rivers 14 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (3/12/2014)

You aren’t gonna win many games in the NBA when your fourth quarter offense consists entirely of Austin Rivers. All 5 shots, made or assisted by the guy who was probably the worst player in the league last year. Though to be fair, he had a really good night, with some nice finishes at the…

Eric Gordon 29 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (3/4/2014)

If Eric Gordon were a subgenre of rock music, what subgenre would he be? This is a tough question to answer since rock is an extremely broad musical genre, encompassing almost any form of guitar-based music. My first inclination is that Eric Gordon would be 70’s Psychedelic Rock, since that genre is very free-flowing and…

Anthony Davis 28 Points Full Highlights (3/4/2014)

Tyreke Evans walked into the locker room before the game holding a large box. He set it down and opened it, revealing a purple, green, and yellow cake. “Look what I got us! A little something special for Mardi Gras! A kingcake! I thought we could have maybe a little snack before the game. Everyone…

Austin Rivers 19 Points Full Highlights (3/1/2014)

Austin Rivers has elevated himself from “worst rookie PER ever” (5.9 LOL are you serious?) to “bad backup PG, worse than Brian Roberts”. This is an impressive leap for a guy I thought would never have positive win-shares. It’s doubtful that he ever lives up to the hype of his high-school days, but if he…

Alexis Ajinca Career High 19 Points/12 Rebounds Full Highlights (2/24/2014)

There’s a totally unheralded position battle going on in New Orleans. Who gets to be the starting center? Greg Stiemsma or Alexis Ajinca? The Pelicans are trying out both dudes next to Anthony Davis, who they obviously can’t start at center. Then who would be the power forward? Stiemsma fills the more traditional “big white…

Anthony Morrow 18 Points Full Highlights (2/22/2014)

Anthony Morrow is like a better, less-appreciated version of Klay Thompson. Nobody ever told Morrow that he needs to be the man on offense, so he picks the right times to start looking for his own shot. Thompson, on the other hand, will shoot until you take him out of the game. One could even…

Austin Rivers 14 Points/4 Crossovers Full Highlights (2/19/2014)

Austin Rivers still has it! Those sweet crossovers that you remember from his high-school days? Replace those memories with these new ones, as these ones are against actual NBA competition. Tim Hardaway is still wondering where he went. The commentators were talking about how Rivers wants to add a midrange game during the summer. I…

Alexis Ajinca 16 Points Full Highlights (2/12/2014)

Apparently conditioning is a problem for Alexis Ajinca? The commentators were going on about how tired he was looking out there in relief of the foul-plagued Anthony Davis. And he did look tired. Hands on knees, huffing and puffing, and, oh look, a huge jam off an inbounds play. Maybe he was faking it.

Anthony Davis 26 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2014)

I’ve watched a lot of Anthony Davis free throws throughout the course of my highlight making. So as you consider what I say, know that I am the voice of experience. There is no funnier camera angle/NBA player combination than that baseline shot of Anthony Davis as he gets ready to shoot his throws. His…
