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…

Tyler Herro Career High 37 Points Full Highlights (9/23/2020)

In the darkness of the uncomfortably warm, intolerably humid Florida night, beside one of the resort complex’s many outdoor swimming pools, a tall man reclined on a pool chair. The sunglasses he wore on his face were superfluous, given the general dimness of the moonlight, and the fact that he was fully clothed made it…

Duncan Robinson 18 Points Full Highlights (9/17/2020)

Gazing contemplatively at the dark sky of the Florida night, Duncan Robinson ambled along a winding path that took him underneath palm trees and past sweet-smelling flower beds. He wasn’t paying attention to where his feet were taking him; all his thoughts were focused on the game that they had just won. He knew his…

Luguentz Dort Career High 30 Points Full Highlights (9/2/2020)

Through bleary eyes, Luguentz Dort gazed at the hazy silver sky above him. His mind felt at peace, somehow, like a great burden had been lifted from it. His body, however…that was a different story. Why was he so uncomfortable? He rolled to his side, thinking that he had simply wound up lying on a…

Myles Turner 22 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (8/24/2020)

You know what would be the saddest thing ever? If Myles Turner befriended a family of ducks while in Orlando and now he has to leave really quickly (because eliminated teams have to be out of the bubble within 24 hours), but now he’s running around the entire bubble looking for the ducks so he…

Terance Mann Career High 25 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (8/14/2020)

Terance Mann was shooting around several hours before the game. There were a few NBA staff members milling around, but no players. That was for the best. Terance didn’t want to be disturbed. He did a few dribble moves before pulling into a midrange jumpshot. Swish. Just like the last ten. But he wondered if…

Amir Coffey Career High 21 Points Full Highlights (8/14/2020)

Amir Coffey walked into the locker room after the Clippers’ victory in their final regular-season game. The mood was jubilant, even though many of the players on the roster hadn’t even played in the game; there was much clapping of backs and exchanging of fist-bumps all around. Many jokes were told about how the Clippers’…

Tyler Herro 30 Points Full Highlights (8/12/2020)

Tyler Herro, half-asleep, rolled over restlessly. Why was his bed so uncomfortable all of a sudden? He would have to leave a note for housekeeping to get him a new mattress. He squeezed his eyes shut, wanting to go back to sleep; after all, he had slept in enough airport terminals to be accustomed to…

Austin Rivers Career High 41 Points Full Highlights (8/9/2020)

“Dear Diary, When I found out that we would all be playing basketball in Orlando for a long time, without ever having to leave, I was really really excited. Orlando is my favorite place in the whole world because of the theme parks and fun rides and the Disney characters walking around everywhere! When I…

Bogdan Bogdanovic Career High 35 Points Full Highlights (8/6/2020)

“It was nice of you to invite me on your little fishing trip,” Boban Marjanovic said as he cast out his line. A floppy hat was perched on his head and his legs dangled off the side of the boat as he reclined in his chair. Bogdan Bogdanovic, the organizer of the expedition which saw…
