    Coach Nick broke down every point Steph scored vs the questionable defense of the Pelicans last night. While Steph is capable of lighting up anybody at anytime, when poor defense is being played consistently, you're much more likely to see him go off for career highs, and this is what we got from Jrue Holiday and the Pelicans on Halloween.

                        0:37 to 1:08 yea there's gunna be a few other players becoming the best shooter of all-time and if you are glossing over curry's skill by saying there are a few other players in the league with the skill who don't have the "cohonas" to do it then that's just down right blasphemous; I hope you didn't actually mean to say that there are players in the league with his level of skill because he is probably the best shooter of all time and I say probably because in terms of clutch shooting u have to give to reggie Miller or Ray Allen but to say there are other players in the league who could do what he does is stupid.

                          If I was a coach I would stack the middle and let curry shoot from outside all he likes. Low percentage shots are what u want from your opp

                                    he has this "touch" on the bball that only a few has or maybe just him. and his bball IQ.. he plays in control and at pace. very unique player. pure shooter with pure skills.

Not everyone has a spanking new computer and high speed internet to watch your stuff that's dead set in HD. I've loved your stuff for years, learned tons and I want to continue watching. Thank you, Coach.

                                                I understand that you want to connect the video to your website so you can make money from ads and what not but can you at least make sure that the website has a decent video player? The video player on the website uses super low quality, has no option to turn the quality up, and then lags even though the video is buffered. I mean really i wouldn't mind watching it on your website if you didn't have a video player from the 80s

                                                      Grizzles lost by 50. Warriors' starters sat out the 4th. What's good?

                                                      Coach Nick, obviously it's early in the season and they haven't played against each other yet, but could it be, that the only guy in the league right now that can really contain Stephen Curry is Kawhi Leonard? I'm a Spurs fan so course I am biased, but from all I saw from last year's matchup and how Kawhi continued to pressure Curry early and often and poked the ball away from him numerous times, I think that is the only way of containing Curry and nobody does it better than Leonard.

                                                      Also based on that, do you think the Spurs are the only team having a chance of beating the Warriors in a 7-game-series?

                                                      Thanks for answering my questions if you can and have a good day!

                                                              Curry and Westbrook have been out of this world to start, Curry may be favored to repeat as MVP since Westbrook plays with Durant but I think I would take Warriors or Thunder to come out of the West if they keep up with 85% of this play. Sorry Spurs Aldridge and West were great pick ups, but you done screwed the way these pg are playing on theses stacked teams.

                                                                                      Loved the "cohones" part !! But it's not pronunciated with an "h", it's pronunciated with a "j", wich in spanish is a hard sound coming from the throat.

                                                                                      Anyway.... if Stephen Curry keeps playing like that, he's going to be MVP again, and it's hard for me to say because I am a Blake Griffin fan, but the skill level of this guy is out of this world.

Complaining takes a few minutes, clicking takes less than a second..

The whole point of the line is that people think the YOUTUBE CHANNEL is a "channel" and you're disproving it, right? Who would think that videos on your dedicated website are a "channel"? Why would you ever have to tell them that it's not a channel?
