After scouring the photo wires for a little while, it turns out Thursday night's epic produced more compelling photos than Hasheem Thabeet resting his hands on his head. (I know, who would have thought it possible, right?) For example, Eric Devendorf jumping and screaming, two of Devendorf's skills that rival his basketball abilities.
Exhibit A: Jumping, screaming, quite possibly cackling at the misfortune of others:
Exhibit B: Hugging, glowering, screaming, quite possibly at the misfortune of others:
Here's Kemba Walker being assisted off the floor by a teammate. Kemba just looks tired, man. Kemba finds the hardwood peaceful. Let Kemba sleep.
Finally, this might be the most best photo from last night's action. It's certainly the most acrobatic, which is par for the course with Stanley Robinson:
If there's one unfortunate bit about Thursday night's epic, it's that the finish might obscure just how good Robinson was. Stanley went for 28 points and 14 rebounds, but more impressive than his numbers were the skills he used to acheive them. He was without question the most effortlessly athletic player in the game, and a sound grasp of fundamentals -- good footwork, a decent shot, a great feel for rebounding angles -- makes him a true force. He is UConn's Sam Young. By month's end, both could be famous.
