Watch Melo Trimble's full interview with CSN's Chick Hernandez in the video player above, which will begin momentarily.
NBA MVP Stephen Curry sent a personalized video to Melo Trimble last year, inviting him to take part in his SC 30 Select Camp in the summer as a college counselor. There, he would both work on his own game and mentor the high school players in attendance.
He accepted and what has followed for both have been major improvements in their respective leagues. Trimble gives at least a little bit of the credit to Curry.
"It gave me more confidence from going to that camp," Trimble told CSN. "It gave me a lot of tools to use when I come back home as far as watching film and, you know, things to do in my workouts and just character.
"Steph Curry is a really good guy and I just learned from him everyone doesn't have to feel like they're on top of the world. You just be mellow and just chill, so that's what I really like about Steph and I kind of brought his character traits back here."
On the season, Trimble is averaging 14.5 points and 5.4 assists per game. He is one of 10 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given to the nation's best point guard.
