The Jam: Extras is a collection of Krucial Kuts that fall outside of our usual lines of classification. You’re listening to side one/track three: “When You’re Young”, in which we speak with Jeff Mann-Stock, who went to grade school with Stephen Curry and to high school with Jeremy Lin.
K. Are you from North Carolina, originally?
J. I was born in the Chicago area, and I lived there until I was four. Then I lived in Jacksonville, FL for about a year and a half after that, then I moved to Charlotte, NC. I lived there from Kindergarten until the end of second grade or the beginning of third grade. That’s when I went to school with Steph.
I moved to Palo Alto when I was about 12 or 13. I wound up going to Palo Alto High School and just happened to be in the same graduating class as Jeremy Lin.
