Gary Trent Jr. 22 Points Full Highlights (8/8/2020)

I’m not an expert on the psychological aspects of basketball since the things that are going through NBA player’s heads are so far removed from the things that are going through my head when I’m playing a game of basketball. I’m mostly thinking about how to get open for a midrange jumper (even though everybody…

Gary Trent Jr. 27 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (8/6/2020)

We need a nickname or term for all these players who are suddenly SHOWING OUT in the bubble. And the term has to involve the word “bubble” in some way. Something like “Bubble Breakouts”, but I want it to be more creative than that. Who do I have to pay to generate creative ideas for…

Gary Trent Jr. is in that intermediate stage of hair growth where the hair is long enough to be tied back, but not ALL of it is long enough to be tied back. So he’s got the ponytail going on in the back but then he’s got some insect antennae sticking out the front because…

Gary Trent Jr. is cool and all, but I’ve been told by about a million different Blazers fans that Anfernee Simons is their young stud of the future, and he didn’t even play in this game. What the heck, Blazers fans? Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating about the “million” part. Maybe there are a million…

Terry Stotts is looking like a BIG dumb-dumb for not realizing what he had in Gary Trent early in the season. This guy is looking like a perfectly competent scorer at the NBA level and a decent complement to Damian Lillard (anybody can be a decent complement to him as long as you can catch…

Gary Trent: adequate Rodney Hood replacement? Absolutely! Gary Trent: adequate Jusuf Nurkic replacement? Definitely not. Gary Trent: adequate Damian Lillard replacement: No. Gary Trent: adequate Mike & Mike replacement (the ‘Zers former commentary duo)? Throw him in the booth and find out. As you can see, Gary Trent is doing a fine job in the…

Gary Trent 22 Points Full Highlights (2/9/2020)

I may have underestimated Gary Trent when I repeatedly compared him to Tony Snell. One commentators suggestion of a different comparison, Wes Matthews, might be more appropriate at this point. The defense, the three-pointers (no bow-and-arrow celebration though), the low usage which combines nicely with the Chuck Bros of Lillard and McCollum…it matches up way…

The end of this game was controversial. I don’t want to think about it too much because I don’t want to feel sad. I won’t even describe the controversial moment in words just so no Blazers fans have to explicitly relive it while they read this description. Instead, I’ll focus on some happy things that…

The more I think about it, the more conclusively I conclude that my previous comparison of Gary Trent to Tony Snell is basically the most accurate and genius comparison ever made by an NBA journalist. Ever. Just look at how accurate it is: -Both of them are good, but low-volume three-point shooters -Both of them…

Gary Trent seems to be following in the nigh-unfollowable footsteps of the late great Tony Snell (who is neither late nor great, but it sounds cool so I’m leaving it) when it comes to filling up the boxscore with stats, or, should I say, filling the boxscore up with zeros. In this game, Trent had…
