Anthony Davis 21 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (1/10/2014)

I’ve noticed, the last few times I’ve made Anthony Davis highlights, that he gets credit for a lot of dubious blocks. I mean, I wouldn’t consider a three point attempt that solidly hits rim “blocked”. And he never seems to really reject shots. They are barely tipped, if anything. Not to say that Anthony Davis…

Austin Rivers 12 Points/4 Assists Full Highlights (1/10/2013)

Austin Rivers is a bust all the way around. There is no skirting around the issue: kid just flat out sucks. But…BUT!…he has shown improvement, so there is still hope that he can make a career for himself in the NBA rather than being deported to Elbonia to play basketball with a bunch of hut-dwelling…

Anthony Davis 21 Points/1 Three Full Highlights (1/8/2014)

“And there’s another three for Anthony Davis.” You’d better get used to hearing that phrase. We all know he’s been working on the shot since he flaunted it at that USA showcase or whatever that thing in Vegas was. I understand why he would want to add it to his game; I love shooting threes…

Alexis Ajinça Career High 17 Points Full Highlights (1/4/2014)

You know your center situation is screwed up when you have to start a newly-signed Euro who hasn’t played in the NBA for a few years. Granted, this Euro dude was doing pretty good with his Euro team. But still. You don’t want Alexis Ajinca to be your best option at the pivot. In fairness…

Greg Stiemsma 12 Points Full Highlights (1/3/2014)

Greg Stiemsma: most worthless dude in the NBA? Probably not, but close. The Pelicans were forced to start him early in the season because he’s a true center. Then they decided that Anthony Davis could play center. And now they’re seemingly content with starting frickin’ Alexis Ajinca. That dude is so good that Basketball-Reference was…

Ryan Anderson 25 Points Full Highlights (1/1/2014)

I didn’t realize how similar the games of Ryan Anderson and Kevin Love are until just now. Obviously Love is a lot better, but Ryno is comparable in a lot of ways. Including the lumberjack look they have going on. I may have overrated him a bit after he went on that hot streak after…

Tyreke Evans 20 Points/1 Game Winner Full Highlights (12/30/2013)

Would you believe me if I told you that there is a player in the league, RIGHT NOW, who averaged 20/5/5 in his rookie season? And that this player hasn’t even made a single all-star game? I don’t blame you if you don’t believe me. That is some seriously screwed up stuff right there. But…

Anthony Davis 24 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (12/18/2013)

I’m going to be honest with you guys. When I heard that Anthony Davis was out 4-6 weeks with a fractured hand, I cried. For the first time in my life, I cried. I cried tears of mourning for the alley-oops that would never be; tears of sorrow for the displays of athleticism unperformed; tears…

Austin Rivers 17 Points Full Highlights (12/15/2013)

Austin Rivers is one of many cautionary tales about the overhyping of high-school baskteball players. We were treated to mixtape after carefully constructed mixtape showcasing young Mr. Rivers’ sick crossovers, his powerful dunks, and a sweet-looking jumper. He was supposed to be the next big thing. A surefire prospect. Some of his luster wore off…

Eric Gordon 25 Points/4 Assists Full Highlights (12/13/2013)

If Eric Gordon were a shape, what shape would he be? We can rule out hexagons for sure since hexagons have six sides, and Eric Gordon doesn’t. Are there any shapes that are good at basketball? I’m sort of thinking that trapezoids would be pretty good shooters, but then again, I’ve never actually seen a…
