NBA veteran Dahntay Jones is known for pushing the boundaries between playing tough physical defense and being a cheap-shot artist.
Jones was assigned to the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA Developmental League during the 2016 NBA D-League Showcase in Santa Cruz. Watch him send the Lakers’ Los Angeles D-Fenders assignee Ryan Kelly to the floor after pulling the chair.
Nick Van Exel spent 13 seasons in the NBA handling the rock and breaking ankles. The former All-Star is now calling plays from the sideline as head coach for the Texas Legends in the NBA Developmental League.
Van Exel spoke with RunTheTriangle.comb exclusively at the 2016 NBA D-League Showcase about his transition to coaching, the 1995 Lakers vs. Celtics playoffs series, and how he knew Kobe Bryant would be the next Michael Jordan from what he saw in practice.
