Games By James

Well, a feel a little bit better about the T-Wolves for next year, after today's signing of free agent point guard Mike James to a four-year deal.

True, I'm conscious of John Hollinger's recent discovery that the teams who signed 20 of the last 35 free agent contracts of more than $15 million per year would likely give away the player if they could. And I know NBA players practically always play well in their free agent year (as James did) before sulking and sucking post-contract. And yes, I am aware that the Wolves are still stuck with Marko Jaric for four more years, and Mark Blount for three more, and their starting center is still Eddie "The Masturbating Bear" Griffin.

But they didn't trade Garnett. And a backcourt of James and Randy Foye makes me feel much better than the mediocrities the Wolves trotted out last year.
