Ever since we dropped Dime #65 with Aquille Carr on the cover, people have been telling us how much they love the issue. So before our next issue drops, we want to take you behind the scenes of our last cover shoot. We shot “The Crime Stopper” in his hometown of Baltimore, Md., and had the cameras there to capture what went down, documenting his story by talking to the people closest to him. Check it out and let us know what you think…
While most of the Dime crew was in D.C. and Boston for the Red Bull King of the Rock qualifiers, I had the chance to go to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame ring ceremony at Mohegan Sun. Former greats such as Rick Barry, Moses Malone, Calvin Murphy, George Gervin and Dr. J all came out to honor the newest members of the Hall and possibly hit up the Dennis Rodman after party. It’s a surreal feeling, being surrounded by greatness. Just the way these men carried themselves, you could tell. They weren’t obnoxious, self-satisfied or gratified. It was honorable and graceful. The way you’d teach your children to handle hundreds of star-struck on-lookers and swarming media. And then Dennis Rodman walked in. Read More »
Last week I spoke to All Day Basketball about their crazy trick shots and the future of their group. I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that trick shots aren’t that hard, so I figured I’d go out and try some out myself. Well, I was wrong. Check out the video below as we fail miserably. (I’m in the orange shirt.) More importantly, there’s a crucial NYC streetball lesson at the end.
Ever since we dropped Dime #64 with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on the cover, people have been telling us how much they like the issue. So before our next issue drops, we want to take you behind the scenes of our photo shoot with Wesley Matthews. We shot Wes at his crib outside Portland, and had the cameras there to capture what went down. Check it out and let us know what you think…
Ever since we dropped Dime #64 with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on the cover, people have been telling us how much they like the issue.

Ty Lawson has arrived. After shipping off Denver native Chauncey Billups to New York last February, the Nuggets saw a resurgence of both energy and speed to finish the season – ending as the fifth seed out West. At the helm of that spike was the 5-11 Lawson. He’s now resting comfortably in the Nuggets’ starting point guard slot and has taken the reigns of a suddenly refreshed squad. Read More »
While most of the NBA’s Lottery teams were busy selecting first-round talent in last week’s Draft, the Clippers found themselves on the outside looking in. Yeah, in a perfect Clippers’ world, Cleveland’s No. 1 selection of Kyrie Irving could have possibly been theirs – a piece lost in the Baron Davis-Mo Williams midseason swap – instead, they were left searching for new talent in the second round with a pair of selections.

If you have ever been in New York for the summer, then you know that the place to be seen on weekends is the Hamptons. So when AXE invited Dime to come hang with them and projected top-10 pick Kemba Walker at AXE Lounge in Southampton, we jumped at the chance. Watch Kemba talk about sneakers, music, his all-time favorite UConn players and more.

To celebrate his newly awarded Rookie of the Year hardware, Blake Griffin and Nike decided it was finally time the Clippers forward had his own late-night talk show – this is Hollywood after all. And along with help from comedian Andy Richter, they did just that last night at the Nike Vault in front of a very small, studio-sized crowd of onlookers. The set, props, theatrics and even sidekick host all helped to create a pretty awesome atmosphere for the first taping of The Blake Show. Luckily for us, we got to catch the show’s only performance and get up with both Griffin and Richter to hear how their first show all went down.
