Retirement Announcement (…sort of)

https://youtu.be/RaecEPbhwwo When I started DownToBuck, the goal was simple: to make the highlight videos that nobody else was making. To shine a spotlight on the role-players and scrubs who play important roles on every roster. To show the world that these lesser-known players can be just as entertaining and dynamic as the high-paid stars whose…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2019-20 Season Full-ilation Part IV)

https://youtu.be/I-6zTvpvEp0 Part four. Year after year, this part is consistently my favorite out of all the parts. In five years you’ll be able to go back and watch this video and only be able to remember ten of the players. That is the true beauty of Part IV. Enjoy. — 0:08 My third-grade math tells…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2019-20 Season Full-ilation Part III)

https://youtu.be/g5XW6KJWb5E Part three of my NBA full-ilation and we’re still okay…kinda. The players shown in this part aren’t good, but they’re not terrible either. Many of them are the types of players that will get significant minutes for only small stretches of the season, to step in for teammates’ injuries or simply because the coaches…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2019-20 Season Full-ilation Part II)

https://youtu.be/fexptvAGt6A Part two of my NBA full-ilation is already chock-full of players who weren’t even considered to be average role-players by their respective fanbases. Can you believe there’s an entire TWO VIDEOS full of players who are worse than these guys? If you’re not feeling a tingling sensation in your “special zone”, you need to…

Every NBA Player’s First Field Goal This Season (2019-20 Season Full-ilation Part I)

https://youtu.be/WvP3f2WsEPU The 2020-21 NBA season bears down upon us with unexpected swiftness. The Finals finished nary a month ago, and here we are getting ready to start up again in just a few weeks? Where has the time gone? Does time mean anything anymore, or is it simply another one of mankind’s feeble mental constructions,…

DTB’s Top 100 Dunks of the 2019-20 NBA Season (2019-20 Season Dunkilation)

https://youtu.be/l3pvW0qY3oc One of the high points of every NBA season is the release of my “Top 100 Dunks” video. It’s the closest I ever get to making a video that broadly appeals to humanity at large (rather than the small subset of humanity that is enthusiastic about NBA role-players scoring pitiful amounts of points). Is…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Bubble (2019-20 Bubble Dunkilation)

https://youtu.be/lrSqR118SHQ The NBA Bubble (or, as I unsuccessfully attempted to dub it, “The Bubb”) was a true success no matter how you look at it. A champion was determined in a mutually agreed-upon fashion, and nobody caught COVID while doing it. Now the NBA’s Disney campus lies empty, its only occupants being the ghosts of…

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 17 Points/1 Championship Full Highlights (10/11/2020)

In the months that followed my hiring as “janitorial shift manager” at the NBA headquarters, I laid low and did my assigned work without complaint. During all those lonely evenings, where I supervised a crew of four janitors but also selflessly undertook any cleaning projects that were exceptionally distasteful or onerous, I engaged in discreet…

Duncan Robinson 26 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (10/9/2020)

Duncan Robinson has proven himself in these playoffs enough times that I think the time has come for another nickname reassignment ritual. I say that like the nickname reassignment ritual hasn’t already happened, but it totally has. I just performed it last night. For the ignoramuses out there, basically what I do for this ritual…

Tyler Herro 21 Points Full Highlights (10/6/2020)

Adam Silver, right at this very moment, is looking at printed-out reports of the TV ratings for the NBA Finals, shaking his head stoically before letting out a dramatic wail, flailing his arms everywhere like a toddler, knocking all the important paperwork off his desk, and beating his desk with his fists while screaming “WHY…
