18 points. 7 assists. 6 rebounds. 4 steals. 2 blocks. What kind of basketball god could accumulate such amazing stats in a single game? LeBron? Yeah, he’s done it, but he’s surpassed godhood and ascended into the highest state of being so he doesn’t really count. He’s the only one so far this year, but you can add another name to the list.
Yeah, pretty messed up, isn’t it? Totally unexpected. I had already written him off this season. It seems like he’s been injured in one way or another since the beginning of time. And even when healthy he’s not exactly a great player. But he’s a good back-up point guard.
So good that he can manage to wring an assist out of the cadaverous husk that is Robert Sacre. It’s the most impressive thing in this video, honestly. That or the crazy release he has on his threes. The sidespin on those shots must be intense.
