JaKarr Sampson 16 Points Full Highlights (2/22/2015)

JaKarr Sampson looks quite a bit like LeBron James, especially in the construction of his facial bones. I have expounded at length on this very topic in a previous description. What I have learned since then, however, is that JaKarr and LeBron are actually from the same city, that they went to the same high…

Tim Frazier 13 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (2/20/2015)

Having impaled the body of the lead NBA copyright enforcer, I have no time for celebration. I must find where Dawk Ins is being detained. I dial his number, not bothering to find another phone. The NBA already knows about me. Just as I had hoped, the call is answered, and a gruff voice gloats,…

Nerlens Noel 12 Points/9 Blocks Full Highlights (2/20/2015)

The circular room is dimly light by candles adorning the walls. Enthroned on the raised dais in the center of the hall is a dark man adorned in brilliant red robes. Around him, kneeling in reverence, are various black-cloaked figures, gazing at their soon-to-be leader. From the main entrance comes a man. He, too, is…

Hollis Thompson 18 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2015)

Hollis “Alcohollis” Thompson was in a prolonged slumpy-wumpy for the whole first half of the season. After a promising rookie campaign where he alone managed to emerge from the stinking tar pits of the 76ers organization, his shooting regressed and his role was diminished in favor of other players. DownToBuck decrees: Thompson’s long nightmare of…

Robert Covington 22 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2015)

Robert Covington: the only good offensive player on the 76ers? You might be able to argue Michael Carter-Williams. Other than him, there is no one else who can actually put the orange into the actual bucket. Philadelphia’s roster constructions looks worse for not having Embiid and Saric this year, but it is still horrible. Covington…

Hollis Thompson Career High 23 Points Full Highlights (2/3/2015)

Hollis “Hlay” Thompson was one of the success stories for the Philadelphia 76ers last leason. Success being defined as “not absolutely horrible all the time”. He shot the three well, and I, at least, saw shades of Wes Matthews. It’s not like I saw MJ or Kobe in him or anything, but it’s something. Sadly,…

Jerami Grant 18 Points Full Highlights (2/2/2015)

Jerami Grant sat on the bench as he watched his teammates take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. He liked the playing time he was receiving lately, but sometimes it was just better to relax a bit on the sideline and appreciate the game for what it was. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute subbed out. Walking over…

Nerlens Noel 14 Points/”6 Blocks” Full Highlights (1/30/2015)

The boxscore for this game says that Nerlens Noel had six blocks. The tape tells a different story, with two of those blocks being quite clearly accomplished by Mbah a Moute and MCW respectively. I understand, scorekeepers. When a shot gets rejected and Nerlens is in the vicinity, it’s only natural to automatically give the…

JaKarr Sampson 13 Points Full Highlights (1/28/2015)

The locker room was a jubilant place after a blowout win over the Pistons. There was much laughter as the assorted Sixers discussed their plans for the evening. However, to the side, JaKarr Sampson sat silently, looking down at his lap. “Hey rook, what’s bugging you?” asked Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, noticing that the…

K.J. McDaniels 14 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/23/2015)

KJ McDaniels made his way to the back of the team plane, where Luc Mbah a Moute sat in a row by himself, reading an ebook. He took a seat next to his teammate, and then looked at him expectantly. Luc had noticed KJ’s approach, and determined that it was not his own responsibility to…
