Video: Steph Curry Picks Winners Of NBA Jam Style Tournament

Stephen Curry

There’s no better basketball video game than NBA Jam. The 2-on-2 arcade classic of the 1990s is now one of the most popular cell phone apps among hoops junkies, proving that the game’s unique flair for style, announcing, and general game-play knows no generational bounds. What would be even better than playing NBA Jam, though? A real-life knockout tournament in the game’s vein featuring the league’s best tandems. Read More »

Team USA Roster, Rotation Might Be Taking Shape (UPDATE)

Team USA

The withdrawals of presumptive Team USA locks Kevin Love and Blake Griffin from the 2014 FIBA World Cup were one thing. Coach Mike Krzyzewski has always preferred to utilize a nominal, athletic power forward in the Carmelo Anthony mold as opposed to more traditional big men alongside a true center, which is why the absences of Paul George and Kevin Durant loom so large. USA Basketball’s best available options to play that crucial role are gone, and the country’s most logical if less optimal replacements – Love and Griffin – never came. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Stephen Curry On Scalabrine’s Comments & Paul George’s Injury

Stephen Curry

It was hard for us not to ask Stephen Curry to pose back-to-back and see if maybe we had a fraction of an inch on him. We’re 6-3, but Steph seemed slightly shorter, even though his ropey arms, made taut with coiled muscles, made our reluctance to work out more obvious as our morning with him wore on. Perhaps that’s also why he was so easy to talk with, even after he’d gone through the paces a few times before chatting with Dime during a DEGREE Men event earlier this week. Read More »

Video: Stephen Curry Tries To Teach Us To Shoot

Stephen Curry

When Stephen Curry gets open beyond the three-point arc, time seems to stand still for a second and you can almost feel the collective intake of breath among Golden State’s fans at Oracle Arena. The persistent chatter from even the most bawdy court-side spectators abruptly cuts off as everyone prepares to watch poetry in motion. That’s what Steph’s shooting does for basketball fans. So you can imagine how excited we got when Degree MEN invited us to a special training session with Curry at Basketball City on Pier 36 resting beside the East River in New York City. Read More »

Stephen Curry Admits He Thinks About Playing In Hometown Charlotte

Steph Curry

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry won’t be a free agent until the summer of 2017. That’s three years from now. Discussion surrounding Curry should be limited to his chances of navigating the Warriors through a historically difficult Western Conference and how he’ll fare for Team USA during the FIBA World Cup later this month. But subjects can help dictate the news cycle, and Curry’s recent admission that he has “always had thoughts” about playing in his hometown of Charlotte is such an example. Read More »

Stephen Curry Says He’s A Better Offensive Player Than LeBron James

Stephen Curry, Chris Bosh

During a radio interview with Dan Patrick, Dubs PG Stephen Curry was asked to field an NFL team of NBA players. We did something similar with soccer last week, and Steph would have put LeBron James at the tight end position while he named himself quarterback. Then Patrick asked him if he was a better offensive player than LeBron James. Steph had never heard the question before, but he said he was. Read More »

Brian Scalabrine Says Mark Jackson Didn’t Challenge His Players Enough

Brian Scalabrine, Andre Iguodala

Last season, Michael Jordan clone Brian Scalabrine famously spent the second half of the season coaching Golden State’s D-League team, the Santa Cruz Warriors, after being demoted from a lead assistant by then-coach Mark Jackson. Last week, Scals went on Doug Gottlieb‘s radio show for CBS Sports and talked about his difference of opinion when it came to the coaching philosophy of Jackson, who was terminated after leading the Dubs to the playoffs in two consecutive seasons including a No. 6 seed last year.
