The Cavaliers have signed Dahntay Jones late the last couple seasons to serve as agitator.

He’s working off the clock.

Jones on Stephen Curry, via Mickstape:

People get mad at me, because I don’t declare him a top-10 player in the NBA, which is fine.
I’ve got him on the outside – like 11, 12.

Jones listed his top 10, the first three ordered and 4-10 not:

1. LeBron James

2. Kawhi Leonard

3. Kevin Durant


  • John Wall
  • Paul George
  • Russell Westbrook
  • James Harden
  • Chris Paul
  • Karl-Anthony Towns
  • Anthony Davis

Curry has finished sixth, first, first, sixth in MVP voting the last four years. But the Warriors guard isn’t a top-10 player?

Jones isn’t as dumb as this take makes him seem. He knows where his bread is buttered.
