Cedi Osman 19 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (3/8/2020)

Turkish players in the NBA haven’t been doing so well recently: Furkan Korkmaz, after those back-to-back 30-point games in early February, has gone 30-of-84 from the field right when when the Sixers, hit hard by the injuries to Simmons and Embiid, could use some more scoring. Ersan Ilyasova has partially fallen out of the rotation…

Cedi Osman 20 Points Full Highlights (3/7/2020)

The stats don’t paint Cedi Osman as an impact player. In fact, they paint him as a negative-impact player. I don’t watch enough Cavaliers games to form my own opinions (nobody would willingly subject themselves to such inhumane torment), but I’m very good at putting blind faith in advanced stats when they match my preconceived…

Cedi Osman 19 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (2/22/2020)

Well, John Beilein is out in Cleveland. That’s a relief for me because I have never heard Beilein’s name pronounced out loud (presumably it was said during college basketball broadcasts back when he was coaching at Michigan, but I don’t watch college basketball), so internally, I was pronouncing it all sorts of weird ways. “Bay-lean”,…

Cedi Osman 18 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (1/25/2020)

After watching Cedi Osman lay the ball up rather than dunk it on a give-and-go play with Kevin Love, it occurred to me that I can’t remember ever seeing Osman dunk the ball. He gets a lot of layups, but never any dunks. Upon doing a YouTube search for “Cedi Osman Dunk”, some of the…

Cedi Osman 21 Points Full Highlights (1/14/2020)

I don’t know about you, but I personally don’t view Cedi Osman as the type of player who is so good that he should be sitting out the last quarter (or more) of a total blowout. He exited the game with 4 minutes left in the third and the Cavaliers down by 23 (they would’ve…

Cedi Osman 22 Points Full Highlights (1/4/2020)

Pictured: Cedi Osman desperately, but ultimately unsuccessfully, attempting to get one of the Cavaliers’ young guards to pass him the dang ball. Not pictured: Kevin Love stomping around the post-game locker room yelling obscenities and destroying furniture while Cedi Osman looks on sadly. It’s not Osman’s fault that the Cavaliers are so dysfunctional. From my…

Cedi Osman 18 Points Full Highlights (12/18/2019)

Using the precepts of advanced analytics, I have broken down the field goals that Cedi Osman made in this game into three categories. I will then use those categorized field goals to determine whether or not this video was worth making. 1 Jumpshot 1 Turnaround hook/floater 6 Layups (“LAME-ups”) 1 Free Throw Think about it….

Cedi Osman 20 Points Full Highlights (11/29/2019)

The much-coveted title of “Best Turkish NBA Player” is up for grabs right now. I look around the league, see some scattered Turks, and none of them are playing exceptionally well. Honestly, as it stands, Furkan Aldemir could make his long-awaited return to the league and take the title easily. By the way, I am…

Cedi Osman 21 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (3/18/2019)

I’m at the point right now where I think the Cavaliers broadcast is purposely showing corporate logos prominently during free-throw attempts. I mean, just look at that thumbnail. How is that not intentional? They’re blatantly using the likeness of Cedi Osman to help shill McDonald’s. The implication here is that NBA superstars such as Osman…

It was all very tasty while it was being consumed. Greasy, but tasty. Unfortunately, the large volume of food is having detrimental effects on…
