T.J. McConnell 13 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (11/16/2015)

It’s a little early in the season to be handing out accolades, but I feel this one has already been won. This year’s “Nate Wolters Award for Excellence in the Face of Being a Second Round Pick Forced Into a Bad Situation Because of Injuries” award goes to: T.J. McConnell! Following in the footsteps of…

Jahlil Okafor 19 Points Full Highlights (11/16/2015)

New candidate for worst nickname of the year: “Jah-man”. Actually, it’s still “The Bus Driver”, but when you’ve already got two of the horriblest monikers in the league attached to you before you’ve even played a month in the NBA, you know your commentary team sucks. Marc Zukoff must have been so dumbfounded by Alaa…

Jahlil Okafor 21 Points Full Highlights (11/14/2015)

I know it’s been mentioned a lot, especially before the draft, but man, Jahlil Okafor’s hands are BIG. He palms the ball like it’s a grapefruit. I hadn’t really noticed the effect in-game before, and now that I have, it’s just blowing my mind. Blowing my mind in much the same way as if Jahlil…

Christian Wood 15 Points Full Highlights (11/13/2015)

Another day, another random Sixers rookie doing basketball-y things on an NBA basketball court. Continuing in the proud tradition of Philadelphia scrubs like Drew Gordon, Larry Drew II, and Tim Frazier, Christian Wood at one point flashed enough potential that someone in the Sixers’ FO said “Screw it, this guy can jump and stuff!” Jump,…

Hollis Thompson 19 Points/5 Threes Full Highlights (11/11/2015)

Hollis “All Hollis Breaking Loose” Thompson has lowkey been a very good three-point shooter over his three-year career. He shot over 40% on deep balls in his first two seasons and looks poised to do it again this year. There are just a few things holding him back from breaking into the NBA fan’s collective…

Ish Smith 17 Points/12 Assists Full Highlights (11/10/2015)

MORE Ish Smith highlights? I thought with Jrue Holiday coming back that we wouldn’t see much more of this guy, hell, I thought that recent-signee Jimmer Fredette might take some of his minutes even. I guess not. The Pelicans need a back-up PG who isn’t just a small SG. So who cares if Ish pounds…

Isaiah Canaan 23 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (11/7/2015)

Once you come to grips with the fact that Isaiah Canaan is not a point guard and should never ever be played at that position ever (EVER!), you realize that he’s not that bad of a player. He’s like a slightly less swaggy Lou Williams. If you like guys like that, first of all I…

Nik Stauskas 18 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (11/7/2015)

Nik Stauskas has been putting up some nice scoring games (by his standards) lately, this is a way better stretch than anything he did with the Kings. The casual fan might gaze slack-jawed at the boxscores and determine “Sauce Castillo is a beast hurrrrr”. An enlightened fan (like me) Looking deeper at the advanced stats…

Nerlens Noel 18 Points Full Highlights (11/6/2015)

Nerlens Noel stood outside the bedroom. Inside, his lover was awaiting. He thought about all the advice that Luc Richard Mbah a Moute had given him, tried to recall it to the forefront of his mind, now, when he needed it the most. “Where are you, Luc?” Nerlens whispered in the dimmed hallway. But his…

Jahlil Okafor 18 Points Full Highlights (11/6/2015)

Jesus Christ. Starting around 45 seconds into this video is the worst sequence of commentary that I’ve heard so far this year, easily beating out Stephanie Ready’s stilted “Oh no he didn’t!” from the last Hornets game. What’s up with teams replacing their perfectly good commentators with semi-literate drooling mongoloids? I liked Malik Rose. Don’t…
