== == From what I've heard, assists are called dimes because it's like dropping a dime in the pay phone (back when it was 10 cents) to make a connection. The player who makes the pass to the other player who scores made the "connection" just like a phone call! I have heard that dropping dimes into a pay phone is very easy, like making an assist. There are many different stories for why an assist is called a dime.
