Nikola Mirotic 30 Points Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

Nikola Mirotic was walking through towards the home locker room at the Smoothie King Center when he thought he heard a voice whisper his name urgently. “Pssst! Niko! Niko, over here!” Stopping in his tracks and looking around, he couldn’t see anybody who would have said his name. He was about to start walking again…

Nikola Mirotic 24 Points Full Highlights (4/9/2018)

Nikola Mirotic has played very well since chopping off the furry brown mass that was engulfing his chin. This 24-point game is actually his lowest point total since adopting the “Paul Zipser” look. But I have a feeling that he’s got another surprise in store for us for the playoffs. No, I’m not talking about…

Nikola Mirotic 28 Points Full Highlights (4/7/2018)

Clean-shaven Nikola Mirotic is for real. He is all business now, no messing around. He wants no distractions heading into the playoffs, and “itchy cumbersome crumb-receptacle tangled mass pube beard” definitely qualifies as a big distraction. Now that he’s shaved, can he maybe go to Miami and talk to Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Johnson? Those…

Nikola Mirotic 31 Points Full Highlights (4/6/2018)

Someone needs to explain to Nikola Mirotic the concept of a “playoff beard”, because whatever idea he has about it, however he thinks it works, it’s wrong. Can’t argue with the results, though. Two games without the beard equals two games of 25 and 31 points equals two Pelicans victories. If he thinks “playoff beard”…

Nikola Mirotic 25 Points Full Highlights (4/4/2018)

Ah. Ahhhh. AAAAHHH! AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Nikola Mirotic dropped 25 points tonight, which is really cool and there is nothing different or weird or abhorrent about the way he looks at all. Everything’s the same in Mirotic-world. This is the same Mirotic we’ve been seeing for years now, except he’s in a Pelicans jersey. All good. Yup….

Nikola Mirotic 20 Points Full Highlights (3/30/2018)

It’s official: Nikola Mirotic regressed HARD when he got traded from the Bulls to the Pelicans. The Pelicans thought they were getting a sharp-shooting stretch four, but what they really got was a guy who can’t even shoot over 40% from the field. Why did he regress so drastically? -The threat of Bobby Portis punching…

Nikola Mirotic 26 Points Full Highlights (3/7/2018)

The way these Pelicans commentators were talking, it seems like they didn’t like Nikola Mirotic’s shot-selection the last few games. Huh. Let’s just get one thing straight here: shot-selection is a term made up by crappy offensive players to try and shame good offensive players into shooting the ball less. You think Kobe Bryant would…

Nikola Mirotic 24 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (3/4/2018)

It took a little while, but I think the Pelicans are figuring out how to win without DeMarcus “Ewing Theory” Cousins. I wish I could say that the reason for that is because Nikola Mirotic has stepped and directly replaced, stat-for-stat, all of Cousins’ production. Wouldn’t that be the sweetest thing ever? Mirotic has definitely…

Nikola Mirotic 21 Points Full Highlights (2/12/2018)

You people are going to have to give some compelling arguments if you want to see highlights of Emeka Okafor scoring 8. That fact that he took 4 years off of NBA basketball is not reason enough, nor is the fact that he is old as heck now (I swear I thought he was older…

Nikola Mirotic 21 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (2/10/2018)

21 points, 16 rebounds, 5 blocks. That’s more of an “Anthony Davis” statline than a “Nikola Mirotic” statline, but we’re living in crazy world where nothing makes since anymore, and Mirotic now plays a traditional power forward role instead of the “chuck threes like a shooting guard” role he played in Chicago. As usual, I’m…
