Jonathan Isaac 16 Points Full Highlights (11/18/2018)

Is this the year that the Magic finally crawl their way out of the mud pit that they’ve been inhabiting the past few years and end up with a winning record? We have been fooled before. They have made previous runs like this only to collapse under the weight of their own suckitude. I have…

Nikola Vucevic 28 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (11/18/2018)

Nikola Vucevic shifted nervously on his feet. “You sure you’ve got the plan?” The scantily-clad escort that he had hired for the occasion continued looking annoyed. “Yeah, I’ve got it. You do realize, however, that getting punched in the face falls significantly outside the range of services I typically offer to my clients.” Now it…

Aaron Gordon 31 Points Full Highlights (11/18/2018)

In the first quarter of the first quarter of tonight’s game against the Knicks, we were treated to the SLAGgiest SLAG that ever SLAGged. In case you’re not familiar with my acronyms, I’m talking about Summer League Aaron Gordon, the phenomenon of Aaron Gordon performing like he did in all those Summer Leagues that he…

D.J. Augustin 22 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (11/17/2018)

D.J. Augustin opened his eyes and knew immediately that something was wrong. His surroundings were completely unfamiliar, and a man wearing a mask and robe was standing above him. His form was illuminated dimly by flickering candles which ringed the stone dais upon which D.J. lay. “You were not supposed to awaken,” the man said…

Nikola Vucevic 36 Points Full Highlights (11/17/2018)

One thing I have learned over the years, is that you can’t make people care about players they don’t want to care about. You just can’t do it. People with way more clout in the NBA sphere than I have can’t do it. No one can. There is simply nothing anyone can do to drive…

Nikola Vucevic 30 Points Full HIghlights (11/14/2018)

I have only the vaguest memories of Nikola Vucevic’s short tenure in Philadelphia. So vague that I’m not entirely sure I didn’t just make them up, or that they were artificially implanted in my mind by aliens. That was the year before I started making highlights, and I wasn’t as all-around in my NBA fandom…

Terrence Ross 21 Points Full Highlights (11/12/2018)

I was getting the feeling that this season’s version of Terrence Ross is the most aggressive he’s ever been, and it turns out that, as usual, my gut feeling was correct. The stats bear it out: Ross’ shot-taking rate is higher this season than it’s ever been by a considerable margin. I don’t know if…

Mo Bamba 15 Points/2 Blocks Full Highlights (11/11/2018)

I think the goal for Mo Bamba’s career should be to excel so well at one particular skill (dunking, blocking shots, shooting hook shots, hitting threes, etc.) that one could unironically describe his single-minded focus as him having the “Bamba Mentality”. The unironic part is important. I could say that Bamba has the Bamba Mentality…

Terrence Ross 22 Points Full Highlights (11/11/2018)

The Magic would be a whole lot better if they still had Andrew Nicholson, just saying. I was on the hype train for that guy for the whole time he was in the league, and even though it may be empty except for me at this point, I’m riding this thing until the track terminates…

Mo Bamba 15 Points Full Highlights (11/9/2018)

It’s jumper time for Mo Bamba. I lost track of how many he made tonight. It’s gotta be less than 8, but not too much less. He was, dare I say, OWNING the ‘Zards with it. Dwight Howard, eat your heart out. You wish your shooting stroke was as smooth as Bamba’s. This single performance…
