Dime Drop: Westside Connection
Raiders corner Nnamdi Asomugha talks hoops.
Here’s one thing we can admit: We didn’t expect Sunday’s Raiders-Chiefs showdown to hold so much weight. Nor did others. When Oakland (4-4) takes on Kansas City (5-2) this weekend, the whole world will be watching what could be Week 9′s best battle. What we did know, though, or at least found out in SLAM 143, was that Raiders secondary Nnamdi Asomughaone—one of the NFL’s best cornerbacks—knows more than just football. Check our last issue’s Dime Drop, below, in which we spoke to the Raider about his basketball history and his love of hoops. (We know dude’s questionable for Sunday’s game, and hope he can give it a go. Get well soon, fam!)
