Nik Stauskas 15 Points Full Highlights (3/3/2015)

From now on, I will write my descriptions expecting that the player displayed will read them. Nik Stauskas is a really rad dude. He’s Canadian, which accentuates his radness, creating another rad facet on the already rad gemstone of his life. I think he’s a good basketball player, unfairly maligned in the media merely for…

Andre Miller 12 Points/10 Assists Full Highlights (3/1/2015)

Andre Miller should be HOFer. Straight up. Try to debate me on this point. You will lose. Don’t even try bringing up his scoring averages. Basketball is a team game, and a player who makes his teammates better by his presence does not himself need to chuck the ball like a maniac. The curators of…

Ray McCallum 20 Points Full Highlights (2/27/2015)

I am vindicated. Once upon a time, I had the temerity to call Ray McCallum a “scrub”. This was last season, his rookie year, and he was playing poorly. He eventually had some decent games for the Kings that season, and under threat of unsubscriptions I recanted my proclamation. But as when Galileo denied his…

Ben McLemore 18 Points/2 Dunks Full Highlights (2/3/2015)

“It’s his dubstep!” Rudy Gay had screamed. “He’s always tricking people into listening to it and it sucks!” Ben McLemore was occupying his usual place in the corner of the dungeon. His captor had relented and allowed the captives to be fed the most meager of rations; however, Ben’s moldy bread remained untouched. He could…

Darren Collison 23 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/31/2015)

This must be a trend, because it’s the second time I’ve noticed it: when Kings players go off on their former teams, the Kings commentators love talking about it. Last time, it was Derrick Williams; this time, it’s actually justified, as Darren Collison did really have a good game and is overall having a good…

Quincy Miller 13 Points Full Highlights (1/23/2015)

I’m sure there are a lot of good things about Quincy Miller. Blah blah length blah blah athleticism blah blah shooting blah blah blah. However, there’s one thing that forever taints him in my view. He shoots his free throws too fast. Usually a player has a whole ritual that he goes through before he…

Nik Stauskas 11 Points Full Highlights (1/23/2015)

The way the Kings’ commentators were going on about Nik Stauskas’ confidence, I have to think that he’s currently in a pretty bad mental state. His recent DNP’s and the trade rumors swirling like a tempest around him can’t help. It also doesn’t help that every time he makes a shot they say something like…

Jason Thompson 23 Points/22 Rebounds Full Highlights (1/17/2015)

Is Jason Thompson the worst player to get a 20-20 game in this millennium? When you converse with Kings fans all they can do is repeat over and over anecdotes of J-Thomp’s awfulness. He’s scoring at an improbably low rate for a guy who isn’t utterly offensively handicapped. He still gets to start because of…

Nik Stauskas 13 Points Full Highlights (1/9/2015)

I admit I had my posterior firmly planted on the Nik Stauskas hype train leading up to the draft. I was led astray by home videos of him shooting threes in the rain, by deviously constructed highlight packages, by the general overexpectations for rookies, and by the collective hivemind of a bunch of dudes on…

Derrick Williams 17 Points Full Highlights (1/1/2015)

Were the hype levels for Derrick Williams ever anywhere near the hype levels that Wiggins and Parker are getting this year? He was drafted four years ago and I don’t really remember. If he was hyped to that level, there would still be people who are excited him even today, but that doesn’t seem to…
