Random Wax: 2019-2020 Donruss Basketball

2019-2020 Donruss Basketball:  Not sure who watched any of the NBA2K Player's Tournament this weekend but it was fun.  It doesn't equate quite as well as the iRacing NASCAR does weekly but I do like hearing the players talk.  They aren't on the court and are talking only to the other player so conversations can be all over the place but it is fun.  Some players talk more that others so it can be quite a bit different game to game.  Kevin Durant was pretty talkative but was ousted in the first round.  Back to this pack and Zion Williamson.  Always a win this year when you can pull this dude.
Lots of yellow...and lots of excellent players.  Can't wait to see these guys on the court again assuming we might.  I've heard they've considered quarantining all 16 playoff teams in Las Vegas and playing in empty arenas.  I could get behind that.  Everyone involved would be quarantined and checked.  Not saying this should start tomorrow but after some time it could be doable.   
That Jae Crowder is a green holo parallel.  The Great X-Pectations insert doesn't do it for me.  Seems like the colors could be a bit better.  It has an 80's vibe but I'm not feeling it.  Nice Embiid card.  
 Plenty more star power in this pack and we finish this pack off with Kevin Durant.  Brooklyn will be even more fun to watch with him on the court next season.  Basketball cards are a hard find nowadays but if I come across any of these I'd definitely pick up more given the opportunity

30 – Total Cards
5 – Rated Rookie
1 – Franchise Features
1 – Great X-Pectations
1 – Green Holo Parallel


  1. Cool you pulled a Zion. I watched the 2K tourney a bit. I actually thought Durant was the most boring of all the players.

    1. I didn't think the guy he was talking to was very talkative. Didn't say much back. Some were definitely better than others. no doubt.

  2. Super jealous. I totally want to add a Zion rookie card to my collection at some point... but based on what I heard they're selling for... I may have missed my shot.

    1. I've been pretty lucky with grabbing him in packs. Of course now those packs are all gone. Don't lose hope though!
