Pascal Siakam 26 Points/1 Championship Full Highlights (6/13/2019)

My game six viewing experience was interesting to say the least. Most of the time I’m a solitary basketball watcher. I don’t go to bars or restaurants to watch the games because those places are loud and the TV’s are usually too far away. The few times I’ve been in one against my will while…

Meyers Leonard Career High 30 Points Full Highlights (5/20/2019)

Meyers Leonard opened his eyes from sleep, which was strange in the first place, because he didn’t remember having fallen asleep. He remembered the game ending, and thinking the season was over, and then…nothing. His last memory was of walking off the court. The second strange thing was that he was somewhere that definitely was…

Rudy Gobert All 306 Dunks Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Dunkilation Part II)

Rudy looked up from his reading as the doorbell rang, the tinkling melody causing a frown to appear on his face. Had he not instructed Remi to meet the guests at the gate? How had they made it all the way to the front door? It was no matter, Rudy supposed. The entire facade of…

Rudy Gobert All 306 Dunks Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Dunkilation Part I)

The lanky Frenchman reclined in comfort, surrounded by the peaceful sounds and enticing scents of his well-tended Victorian garden.

James Harden All 378 Three-Pointers Full Highlights (2018-19 Season Three-ilation Part I)

James Harden is notable for many things: his stepback three-pointer that looks like a travel. His ability to enrage opposing fanbases with uncanny foul-drawing ability. The fact that Sam Presti deemed his value in a trade to be equivalent to that of Kevin Martin. That funny commercial where he sang about taking his shirt off…
