The Best Descriptions of Bucks Plays From the Media Stats Site

Over on the NBA's media stats site, you can watch video of every play of every game. (You can also now do that on the regular NBA.com/stats page.) On the right hand side of the screen, there is a description of each play. Most of the time it simply states the basics of what just happened. For example, take a look at this picture.

As you can see, it lists who made the shot, what kind of shot it was, and who had the assist. Nearly all the descriptions are as basic as this one. Occasionally, however, the writers of the descriptions get creative. I found a bunch of the best from different Bucks games throughout the year. Of course, this isn't an exhaustive list, but a sampling of some of the media stats site's best efforts.

John Henson: "points"

This one wins the award for laziest description ever. "Hey, I missed that. What did John Henson do?" "Oh he got points."

John Henson, Brandon Knight: "hi-five"

After John Henson got a dunk courtesy of Brandon Knight, the two buddies slapped five on the way back down the court. I like the restraint the descriptor used on this one. No need to get fancy, it was just a simple hi-five. Plus on this one, we get the bonus "woes" section, though it doesn’t say who suffered "woes." Probably safe to assume it was someone on the Celtics though.

Zaza Pachulia: "no look"

Easily the most #rare description you’ll see. If we were talking Pokémon, this would be Mewtwo levels of #rare. In fact, it’s so #rare that I included video (go here) because I thought you might not believe me.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: "funny"

I really don’t understand how this step back three by Giannis was funny, tbh. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Giannis Antetokounmpo: "cheatable"

This "cheatable" description came up a few times, but this one, a pretty finger roll by Giannis, was most appropriate. With how awesome he is, sometimes it really does feel like Giannis is cheating.

Hopefully you enjoy this hard hitting journalism.
