Is Joel Berry entering Steph Curry territory?

Roy Williams Seeking Better Play

No. 5 North Carolina begins play in the 2016 Maui Invitational with its focus not on the loaded field, but rather on elevating its inconsistent play through the first 10 days of the season. “We’ve started off 4-0 and we haven’t played that well except for a couple of moments in certain games,” Roy Williams said during the event’s opening press conference on Sunday.

Old Man, Still Amazing: A Changed Vince Carter Still Making Big Plays in Memphis

Watch someone long enough, as Vince Carter is allowing us to watch him, and you see the same stuff, except from new perspectives. It was without trepidation that Carter ferociously rammed both ball and arm deep into that net in the 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Same sort of thing when he soared up and over 7'2" Frederic Weis in the Olympics mere months later. (Bleacher Report)
