1. A ten cent coin in the US that is the smallest coin available. But by weight it is interestingly the same proportion per cent as the quarter. A very nice coin that is often overlooked and dropped a lot

2. In basketball, an assist, and usually a skillful assist. A baller who gives out lots of dimes is a huge asset. See Chris Paul, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, and John Stockton as examples of great dime-distributors.

3. Very cool - 10 out of 10.
1. Woah dude, look at that dime on the ground... *kneeling down to pick it up* - AWESOME MAN it's from 1962 - a 90% silver dime man!

2. Chris Paul not only makes awesome shots under pressure, but his ability to rack up dimes is unbelievable.

3. Wow, I'm speechless. She's a dime.
