Steph and Klay Thompson are tied for most 3s in a single postseason (96). Steph is also 3rd (80). 4th is only 65 (J R Smith).

Steph is 10th in career postseason 3s. With a trip to the finals he might move up as high as 2nd, but 3 thru 5 is more likely. 1 and 2 are Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

Steph is #111 in career playoff points. With a trip to the finals he probably passes 35 to 40 guys. 1 and 2 are MJ and Kareem, though Lebron has a chance to catch them this year.

Pretty good article in GQ. Pretty good in that it captures the humanity of Steph and his family. Maybe just a bit over the top. But if you can't be over the top about Steph Curry that does limit you as a feature writer.

Last night Steph passed Shawn Marion, Shawn Kemp, and Michael Finley to move into a tie with Dave DeBusschere for #107 in career playoff points.

With 23 more he will pass Rik Smits, Dick Barnette, Charles Oakley, Vince Carter, Jerome Kersey, and Adrian Dantley.

That did not resemble a playoff game last night.

Dick Barnett was a teammate of Bill Bradley's on the Knicks. In one of his autobiographies, Bradley worried about Barnett's future. He seemed to be a guy who only lived for today and had no long term plans.

Barnett played in the NBA until he was 37. After he retired, he went to graduate school at Fordham and earned a PhD. He became a Professor of Sports Management at St. John's University.

Barnett played for Tennessee A&I, now State, in college. His college teams won 3 NAIA championships. His college coach was John McLendon, who coached Sam Jones at NC College, now Central. Barnett and McLendon are in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

In '61, Barnett jumped from the NBA to the ABL. The ABL was another professional league that only lasted 1 1/2 years. After one year in the ABL, he returned to the NBA. John McLendon was his coach in the ABL. George Steinbrenner was the owner of their team, the Cleveland Pipers.

He played with Dave DeBusschere for several years, so it is logical the two would have similar playoff scoring totals.

Sam Jones is in the HOF too.

He used to be the greatest player from Wilmington.

He still is the greatest player from the Laurinburg Institute (narrowly over some other guy we know a little about)

Meadowlark Lemon might argue whether Sam Jones was better than he was.

Certainly not as famous.

Lemon is in the HOF. He isn't on the list of the NBA's top 50 players of all time. Sam Jones is.

Jones was born the year after Lemon. I bet they played each other at some time. Lemon went to Florida A&M. They may have played against each other in college. Makes me wonder.

I bet Lemon made more money than Jones, not that how much money he made determines who was better. He may have played for the Globetrotters voluntarily rather than in the NBA.

In the '50s and '60s, NBA players were poorly paid. Guys would retire rather than be traded to the opposite coast because their off season job was more lucrative. Lee Shaffer, who was traded for Wilt, is an example. Guys retired to go to medical/dental school.

When you say basketball players from Wilmington, Jordan, Jones, and Lemon stick out. Kenny Gattison was from there, too.

Sonny Jurgensen and Roman Gabriel went to the same high school there. Trot Nixon played QB at that school. Algie Crumpler, too. New Hanover High.

Comparisons of old timers reminded me of this:

Lebron has passed Kobe for 3rd all time in playoff scoring. He is less than 100 points behind Kareem. He is 317 points behind MJ. If they reach the finals he will probably catch MJ this year.

Steph passed all those people listed earlier. The Warriors might rest some people in game 4. The NBA rules should let them play some of the '75 team. Jamaal Wilkes, Jeff Mullins, and Charles Johnson probably have some game left.

Al Attles can coach.

Actually he didn't. Vince scored enough earlier in the day to put off the inevitable one more game.

Next up: Carter, Don Nelson, Michael Cooper, and Tayshaun Prince.
