James “Flight” White back to the big stage?

February 7, 2013

If I told you the best dunker in the NBA on average only plays like six minutes a game, would you believe me? If you didn’t, get ready to be awed. James “flight” White is arguably the best dunker on the planet and no one has heard of him. Why has no one heard of him if he is so good you ask? Well, he averages 1.8 points per game with the Knicks in his third season… He may not be the best player around, but he sure can throw it down.         Image

He has a chance to be right in the spotlight during the biggest dunk competition on the planet, the NBA All-star Dunk Contest. Personally, I have met the man back in the day at a University of Cincinnati basketball camp. It was NUTS to see him dunk from the court, it was like watching a Pogo-stick leap high into the air and just viciously throw the ball down. He was so exciting to watch in college because any opertunity he had to wow the crowd he made sure he did just that.

As a player who really is not blooming into an everyday player in the league, this is going to be the biggest “game” of his life. With 100,000 dollars on the line for the winner, the pressure is on. ESPN did a fantastic job telling me how it all started with a well written article. 

Lets face it this could be the best thing to ever happen to James. He has worked hard throughout his career and it has not really gone so well. This could be a huge bright spot in an otherwise uneventful start to his career.
