Jayson Tatum 14 Points Celtics Debut Full Highlights (10/17/2017)

So this morning I woke up and everything was normal. I had pop tarts for breakfast (Stephanie thinks my reliance on pre-packaged “easy foods” is funny and endearing) then sat down at my computer to peruse the NBA news of the day. Of course I skipped all the news about contracts because 1. I don’t…

DTB’s Top 100 Dunks of the 2016-17 NBA Season (2016-17 Season Dunkilation)

As Jennifer ran towards him after his successful dunk, Nick’s mind was a blur, and most of the myriad thoughts racing through his head were some variation on the idea that he had never, ever, in his entire life, kissed a girl.

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Playoffs (2016-17 Playoff Dunkilation)

“Where’s Nick anyway?” Jake asked the assembled group of friends who were sitting in the bleachers, waiting for the pep rally to start. “It’s like he doesn’t even want to see the cheerleaders bounce around and do flips.

Giannis Antetokounmpo All 194 Dunks Full Highlights (2016-17 Season Dunkilation)

“That was the best meal I’ve had in forever!” Rachel said happily as she finished up her plate of chicken Parmigiana. “Glad you liking it,” Giannis said humbly.

Kyle Korver All 162 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2016-17 Season Three-ilation)

I just can’t believe my luck sometimes. So last week I got to go to this thing in New York City, it was called the “YouTube Sports Highlight Summit”. Basically they just invited a bunch of YouTube highlight people to go to a fancy hotel in NYC and listen to speakers who are experts in…

Klay Thompson All 268 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2016-17 Season Three-ilation Part I)

Klay Thompson pulled his trenchcoat closer around his body, feeling conspicuous in his hiding spot underneath the Golden Gate bridge. Suddenly realizing that his greater-than-average height might give away his status as a basketball player, he hunched over to make himself appear shorter.

Manu Ginobili 15 Points/7 Assists/1 Final Game? Full Highlights (5/22/2017)

Manu Ginobili stared into the waters of the burbling marble fountain. In the rippling surface he could see a reflection of himself, but it was not a true reflection; no, it was an image of how he had looked when he had first entered the NBA, a decade and a half ago. His face was…

Thon Maker All 83 Field Goals Full Highlights (2016-17 Season Bucketilation)

Thon Maker, at this particular moment, was very thankful for the extremely dark tone of his skin. His trip to Perth was not a secret, but his middle-of-the-night excursion to the campus of his former high school, Aranmore Catholic College, was very secret indeed.

Jabari Parker All 92 Dunks Full Highlights (2016-17 Season Dunkilation)

Jabari Parker had his eyes closed, but he knew exactly where he was. The milky white glow pervading through his eyelids was a telltale sign. The fact that his knee felt no pain, despite its ligaments having been critically torn for a second time, was another indicator. He had returned to the so-called “Land of…
