Jake Layman 17 Points Full Highlights (2/13/2019)

True NBA fans will note the similarities this game by Jake Layman has to Layman’s NBA debut, which was a 17-point explosion against the Warriors. That game was played in garbage time, with Layman getting a bunch of buckets against whatever scrubs inhabited the Warriors’ bench back then. This time around, it was Layman turning…

Jake Layman 17 Points/4 Blocks Full Highlights (2/11/2019)

There are a lot of candidates for the MIP Improved Player award this season, but one name that I haven’t heard yet in the convo: Jake Layman. His raw stats might not be as impressive at first glance as some of these other dudes, but that’s a matter of looking at things the wrong way….

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (2/7/2019)

When you talk about the Portland Trailblazers, everybody immediately thinks of their two-man guard core of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. It makes sense to consider them the core members of the team given that they score the most points. But what if the two-man core is actually Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic, and McCollum…

Jake Layman Career High 25 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (2/5/2019)

Another highlight video ruined by “Players Only baby!”. Not to make you sad or anything, but imagine how good this video would’ve been with Lamar Hurd exclaiming “Fear the Turtle!” as Jake “Matchup Nightmare” Layman scored bucket after bucket. He probably would’ve made some puns involving cuts and back-doors and combinations thereof. Instead, we got…

Meyers Leonard 16 Points Full Highlights (1/30/2019)

Meyers Leonard is currently playing his seventh season for the Blazers. That’s a long time to play for just onte team these days, especially as a role player, and especially especially as a role player who doesn’t even appear in every game. His contract is bad but not completely atrocious for his level of production…

Maurice Harkless 16 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2019)

Maurice Harkless: most irrelevant starter in the league? His per-game statline of 6-4-1-1-1 doesn’t exactly excite, unless you’re a big fan of players who, if given way more minutes (like two full games worth), might be a threat to get a 5×5 (Harkless: ask Jusuf Nurkic for some tips!). I guess he’s a decent enough…

Seth Curry 22 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2019)

Just call me Nostrabuckus. Two days ago, I penned the following words on a different Seth Curry highlight video: “Is it too late to get people into the three-point contest? […] If there is still a chance to do so, I humbly submit Seth Curry for consideration. […] I don’t know if Steph is going…

Seth Curry 17 Points Full Highlights (1/24/2019)

Is it too late to get people into the three-point contest? Did they already announce the roster for that when I wasn’t paying attention? If there is still a chance to do so, I humbly submit Seth Curry for consideration. He’s shooting 48% on three-pointers this season, and while his volume of shots looks low,…

Jake Layman 20 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (1/24/2019)

I’ve mentioned it before, but it bears repeating now that the situation has grown extremely dire: while it’s great that Jake “Timberjake” Layman is emerging as a good basketball player after two years of complete, total, bottom-of-the-barrel scrubdom, it’s not so great that his minutes directly come at the expense of Nik Stauskas’ minutes. Stauskas…

Jusuf Nurkic 22 Points Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Fan voting for the NBA All-Star game has ended. You have no more chances to try and get your second-favorite Bosnian sportsperson (after Edin Dzeko) into the NBA’s premiere showcase of talent. If you want, I can show you the secret backdoor I made into the NBA’s voting systems (I’m still casting thousands of votes…
