K.J. McDaniels 17 Points Full Highlights (11/21/2014)

Sam Hinkie smiled as KJ McDaniels walked into his office. “Hey, KJ, good to see you. I am almost done with my work. Please, take a seat.” The rookie looked around warily and the office of his GM. It was furnished as one might expect; a lavish desk with a throne-like chair to sit on,…

Chris Johnson 16 Points/4 Threes Full Highlights (11/9/2014)

I always assumed that Chris Johnson’s full first name was “Christopher”. That’s a fair assumption, right? Wrong. His name is actually spelled “Christapher”. From now on, I’m going to use his full name whenever I have to reference him (which is approximately once every never) so that I don’t cause confusion with either a.) the…

Alexey Shved 14 Points Full Highlights (11/9/2014)

I’m sorry. So, so sorry. These aren’t full highlights. Not even close. A layup and subsequent free throw are missing, through no fault of my own. A forgivable offense, right? “Oh DownToBuck, it’s okay, NBATV missed almost a whole 30 seconds of action, not your fault!”. And that may be true. But despite the problems…

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute 16 Points/2 Threes Full Highlights (11/7/2014)

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute has a special place in my heart, occupying space next to a dangerously-clogged artery and my memories of Sarah, the cute girl who lived across the street from me for one year in second grade. How has Luc gained access to this privileged part of my anatomy, you may ask….

Hollis Thompson Career High 21 Points Full Highlights (11/7/2014)

Hollis “All Holl Is Breaking Loose” Thompson: actually a good player, or just good relative to his teammates? These are the hard-hitting questions that DownToBuck is not afraid to ask! Unfortunately, DTB asks, but he doesn’t have answers. We’ll have to wait until Hollis gets to play on a different roster. Until then, the following…

Brandon Davies Career High 20 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2014)

The most notable thing to ever happen to Brandon Davies is when he got suspended from BYU for a large part of a season (including the NCAA tournament). Given my ingrained racial biases, I would have assumed that he stole some crab legs from a supermarket or smoked hella weed. Surely he would have to…

Brandon Davies 13 Points Full Highlights (11/3/2014)

Regarding players on the 76ers roster, the question you have to ask yourself is, “Would this player get any minutes on another team?” In most cases the answer is “Yes, but not very many.” In Brandon Davies’ case, I used to think the answer was “Absolutely not, no way” but I have revised my answer…

K.J. McDaniels 14 Points Full Highlights (11/3/2014)

I like what I have seen so far from K.J. McDaniels. That happens a lot to poor old DownToBuck; making highlights naturally leads to seeing more of the good and less of the bad than an average viewer. For all I know he was playing like total garbage during the rest of the game not…

K.J. McDaniels 12 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (10/31/2014)

Instead of a vitriolic description loaded with baseless assumptions and insults, like I usually write for players whom I know nothing about, I’m just going to come out and say it: I don’t know anything about K.J. McDaniels. His initials are alphabetically proximal to “KFC”, which gains him a few points in DTB’s book. And…

Nerlens Noel 14 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (10/31/2014)

Nerlens listened patiently to his teammate’s explanations, then frowned. “I dunno dude. That sounds like tanking to me.” Shaking his head, Tony Wroten tried to assuage Nerlens’ concerns. “It couldn’t be farther from tanking. We play hard every game, every possession. The only thing we do different from other teams is that we just shoot…
