The concession stand was mostly empty after the game. It was staffed by one lone employee who watched sullenly as equally-sullen Rockets fans streamed out of the arena.

Kelly Oubre Career High 26 Points Full Highlights (1/12/2019)

“Uh, Kelly, what are you doing out here?

Luka Doncic 29 Points/12 Assists Full Highlights (1/11/2019)

“Come find me, Luka,” Dirk Nowitzki whispered into Luka Doncic’s ear as Luka patiently answered questions from the flock of reporters that surrounded his locker. “After these guys leave.” Luka subtly nodded to let Dirk know he understood, and as Dirk retreated to his own locker to answer comparatively fewer questions, Luka wondered what Dirk…

Jeremy Lin 20 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (1/8/2019)

I knock on the unmarked door, my arm trembling. Whether it trembles from trepidation or excitement, I can’t quite tell. The door remains closed for so long that I wonder if I have gotten the address wrong. However, after a nerve-wracking wait, the door opens a sliver and a pair of eyes peeks out. “Password?”…
