I've been seeing Mike James get harder hate on here than usual. Some put Mike James in the same category as Adam Morrison. Really?

Still couldnt beat the trio of Adam Morrison, Mike James, and Eddy Curry. I heard they wanted to team up. They might could convince the GOAT BS to come out of retirement.

just ridiculous. mike james was a better player than those 2 by far but nobody rreally knows that.

The dude scored 20 a game on a TS% of .583 and eFG% of .538 (47 FG% and 44% from 3 range on 5 three pointers a game for you traditional stat folks). His OTRG was 115. His 05-06 season was solid. He was a very good player that year yet he gets joked on like he is Scalabrine?

Here is to putting the myth of Mike James to rest. Lets honor his actual skill instead of mocking him. Who? Mikes James.

You take the best of Michael and mix in prime Lebron and you get MIKE JAMES.

He was solid for a year in Toronto, ran the pick and roll effectively. Def not as bad as alotta others in the league.

Mike James is serious business.

Mike James is that you?

11-24-2012, 05:54 PM
People make him out to be much worse than he actually is. But he's still pretty bad.

Terrible idea for a thread especially since there is only one year to justify him being anything more than at best an average player.

His PER was over the league averge of 15 only 3 times in his career (his "prime"). He only had 4 years where his defensive rating was better than his offensive rating. He was on a new team nearly every year. He was a 10PT 3AST player.The "myth" of Mike James is that one good year and that is why his name comes up in this played out "GOAT" joke.
