Dime Q&A: Steph Curry On Mark Jackson, 4-Pointers, Sleeved Jerseys & More

Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry (Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports)

The 6-3, 185-pound point guard of the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry, almost totally mirrors my own dimensions. I’m 6-3 and around 180 pounds (yes, I’m skinnier than Steph, or as one Dime reader once noted in the comments, I’m a “Napoleon Dynamite motherf***er.” Steph gets ID’d when he’s out at a restaurant or at the club; I’m five years older than he is, and I still get ID’d for cigarettes. Steph is an all-star and in the running for the No. 3 spot in MVP voting this season. I’m just a basketball blogger that gets winded every time I run some 5-on-5 (don’t smoke kids). We have a lot in common physically, which is what makes Stephen Curry’s NBA trajectory so much more remarkable. Read More »

Didn’t get your name called at the NBA Draft? There is still a chance to prove redemption. A lot of talented players failed to get drafted, partly due to the higher level of international talent pushing some college stars out of the second round. Read More »

Kevin Ware

It had been 19 years since Michigan had made the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament. But dabble in a little Trey Burke, and add in some copious amounts of the Kansas Jayhawks — who have a history of this sort of choking — and it all adds up to the best comeback of March Madness … After overtime, the final score read, 87-85, Michigan, but make no mistake: it wasn’t the Wolverines that won the game. It was their point guard. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Jay Williams Tells All

Jay Williams

Jay Williams

Watching Jay Williams address the completely enrapt New Hampton Prep basketball team late Sunday night at the Hoophall Classic, it was clear he was firmly in his element. Basketball has obviously always been a big part of Williams’ life, but you could make a case he’s never been quite as immersed as he is now.

As an ESPN college basketball analyst, Williams splits his time between calling games and working on studio shows, while also commentating for the network’s rapidly expanding interest in high school ball. The latter assignment gives him the opportunity to take part in one of his favorite pastimes: mentoring young athletes. There isn’t a player on any level that doesn’t have the utmost respect for the former No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and he commonly takes time to pull players aside and offer a few words of wisdom.

Why 6 High-Level Basketball Recruits Chose Small Colleges

Klay Thompson

A few weeks ago, Detroit dismantled St. John’s on national television. While this may have surprised a few people, it came as no surprise to hardcore basketball recruiting fans. Ray McCallum denied offers from the likes of Duke and Kansas to play for his father at Detroit. While it is unlikely that McCallum’s decision would have been for Detroit had his father not been the coach, his decision brought up an interesting question: should high-major recruits turn down big offers to play for lower-level schools?
