Over the years, the Dime Family has worked closely with every top player in the NBA. All of them. And we often get asked who we like the most, who we dislike the most, who is the best to work with, and who is the most difficult to work with.

When he was setting college basketball on fire with his monster scoring performances at Texas, we approached him about being on our cover.
