MVP boon: East Oakland youth group gets a new Stephmobile

Stephen Curry was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Monday, and the award comes with a car, a KIA Sorento. The new car might not be as handy as the old van for some tasks, so would the EOYDC consider trading the Sorento for a van, or selling it? In my humble opinion, he wanted to align himself with an organization that fits best with his character and hard-work ethic. Other Warriors have worked with the Center — which promotes education, arts and wellness — including Harrison Barnes. Oaklanders Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Leon Powe, Brian Shaw, Damian Lillard and Lakers draftee...

Damian Lillard Will Seek Max-Level Extension

If the Blazers want to extend their point guard early it's going to cost them. Shams Charania of RealGM quotes unnamed sources claiming that Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard will not extend his contract this summer for anything less than a 5-year maximum extension.
