And while he’ll never come close to matching Stephen Curry from deep, it might not matter much. James’ interior stats remain as staggering as Curry’s perimeter prowess. Consider this: In the 10-season span from 2008-09 through 2017-18, James has been the NBA’s leading scorer in the restricted area an incredible six times, including last season when he converted an astonishing 534 field goals in that critical zone. Not only was that the biggest number of LeBron’s career, but no player had scored so many buckets there since MVP-level Shaq put up 571 in 1999-00. Back then, everyone knew Shaq was the most dominant interior scorer on the planet. But for the past 10 years that title has belonged to James.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, they get the spotlight for being regarded as the best players on the projected best teams. Add James Harden to that mix. This head start, Curry believes, is vital. If a superstar doesn’t have a storyline to magnetize attention, he must hijack it with something incredible. Does that bother you that you aren’t in the conversation? “I don’t care,” he said, seamlessly executing a shoulder shrug, smirk and eye roll simultaneously. “I just know the narrative isn’t there so I would have to go above and beyond. So, it’s whatever. I’m blessed to have three rings. I’m good.”

If sidling is about reporting, it’s also about power. Wojnarowski’s walk-outs with Kobe tracked with his growth into the dominant NBA insider. Occasionally, reporters will flaunt a sidle in their copy. ESPN articles from a game site sometimes include the telltale phrase “told ESPN.com”—which roughly translates to, “told me while the rest of you suckers watched.” The NBA postseason is a mass sidle-off. After a Finals game, a half-dozen or more writers will fake-casually stake out the same players—a scene Adande compared to “jockeying sailboats at the start of a regatta.” “In big games people are paying attention to, it’s almost cringeworthy knowing I have a quote that’s in every other story,” said Thompson. To get something fresh, Thompson executes a pre-sidle. He grabs Curry or Kevin Durant after a game but before they walk into the media room to address the masses. When reporters are waiting for a Warriors player to show up at the podium, they’re often waiting for Thompson to run out of questions.
But when you talk to Jones, the idea of some monster coming out of him can be laughable. Probably because, when you talk to him, Jones is laughing. In a locker room that includes the ever-playful Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, who laughs enough to suggest his skeleton is a stilt of funny bones, you won’t find a more jovial spirit in the Warriors’ locker room than Jones. He laughs when something is funny. He laughs when he is nervous. He laughs to fill awkward spaces and uncertain responses.
Durant’s Golden State teammate and fellow perennial MVP contender is well-known as a rabid Carolina fan, having been raised in Charlotte while his father, Dell Curry, played for the Hornets. Thus, he found himself the object of Durant’s scorn, as did one of his signature-series Under Armour shoes, appropriately in a Panthers’ blue-and-black colorway. In a video posted to social media, Durant shows himself picking up the Curry show and saying, “Somebody get theses pieces of [expletive] outta here.” He then tosses the sneaker at his teammate, seated nearby, taunting him by saying, “How does that [expletive]-whipping taste?”
