Nemanja Bjelica 17 Points Full Highlights (12/4/2019)

I consider this video to be the initial trial run of my new much-anticipated subscription program, DownToBuck+ (read as “DownToBuck Plus”). DownToBuck+ provides all the same great scrublights as regular DownToBuck, but with more (hence the plus). What that means for the average viewer is that videos which would normally show only made field goals…

Richaun Holmes Career High 28 Points Full Highlights (12/4/2019)

I have said in the past that Richaun Holmes was giving me vibes of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Reminder: my vibe-receptors are very finely tuned and never give me erroneous readings when it comes to NBA players. Those Giannis-vibes that I received from Holmes while he was in Philly were some of the most legit vibes I…

Richaun Holmes 20 Points Full Highlights (12/2/2019)

After Dewayne Dedmon had a good game somewhat recently, I thought to myself, “This is it. Dedmon is finally going to start playing well again and chip away at the minutes that Richaun Holmes has earned for himself.” Sometimes my thoughts are those of a fool, and this time was one of those times. How…

Nemanja Bjelica 18 Points Full Highlights (12/2/2019)

I knew that Nemanja Bjelica had been an old rookie by NBA standards, having spent his early career dominating Europe rather than getting marginalized by ignorant coaches here in the States, but I didn’t realize that he’s currently 31 years old. That’s old! Given the average trajectory of NBA players, he’s either currently near the…

Dewayne Dedmon 18 Points Full Highlights (11/27/2019)

Dewayne “Judge Dedd” Dedmon has been the subject of much scorn and consternation from Kings fans, and the terms “scorn” and “consternation” are actually understating their feelings significantly. Judging by their meanspirited nicknames of “Dudman” and “Deadman” for this guy, it’s clear that they really, really don’t like him. It’s a time-honored Kings tradition: the…

Bogdan Bogdanovic 21 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2019)

Bogdan Bogdanovic’s minutes have barely changed in the three years he’s been in the league: 2017-18: 27.9 MPG 2018-19: 27.8 MPG 2019-20: 27.7 MPG I don’t know what to make of this. Does his body just shut down when he gets near the 28 minute mark? Because if I was an alien from another planet,…

Justin James 14 Points Full Highlights (11/22/2019)

It’s too bad that Justin “The Most Worthy Heir To The ‘James’ Throne Since Mike James Just Randomly Disappeared From The NBA After Randomly Appearing” James’ most impressive play this game was an attempted posterization of DeAndre Jordan that only resulted in two missed free throws. In a major departure from established protocol, I actually…

Cory Joseph 6 Points/14 Assists Full Highlights (11/19/2019)

This is the most assists Cory Joseph has ever gotten in an NBA game. You can look at all 540 of his other games, but you will find not one that has as many or more assists than this. That is my way of saying: watch this video. Without delay. Joseph had 8 assists before…

Richaun Holmes 20 Points Full Highlights (11/20/2019)

Other players for the Kings are stepping up now, such that Richaun Holmes is no longer the clear-cut best player on the team. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted, the “Tear it down and build around Rich Holmie Chaun” era of Kings basketball. Or, if you don’t like that title for the era,…

Nemanja Bjelica 17 Points Full Highlights (11/19/2019)

I enjoyed the conviction with which Kings commentator Grant Napear said “Ball game!” following Nemanja Bjelica’s three-pointer with around 2 minutes left to put the Kings up 12. I also enjoyed the slightly more subdued “Woo!” from Doug Christie. The conviction was misplaced, however, as there ended up being a lot more basketball played. The…
