it's true - but then can anyone ever see BC drafting Hoffa... we are talking about a guy who drafted Shawn Marion, steve nash and Amare Stoudamire.aizn said:it's funny how, wen babcock was around if he didnt sign mike james, we'd all be bashing him
now that BC is here, we'd rather he not sign him. lol. i guess he's got the 'credibility' factor attached to his name
LOL. So true!!!Slasher said:I agree with you charlz.
From the comments I have seen from James, from which I am not impressed by, and the recent move to sign Barret as well as Colangelo's comments, I don't see James coming back.
However, where most fans might be upset, if James is really anything like he's been sounding off for the past few weeks, then I don't want him to be a part of this franchise at all.
Is it just me or has James been sounding a lot like Rafer for the past few weeks?

It wasn't MJ's rant (he was on the show) about how he wants to be one of the top stars in the nba (yes, he said that). It was Jack Armstrong saying that if MJ opts out of his deal he will NOT be a Bird exemption player for the Raps.
That means we have to sign him from our available cap space. We can't go over the cap to sign him like we did MoP. So, assuming we sign a starting C we won't have enough cap room to give MJ more than 3 mill or so. Which means he is gone.
MJ also said the BCol has not even talked to him since he took over. Very weird.
We had old man Embry saying that signing MJ was a priority and now BCol doesn't even talk to the guy.
Bosh has hardly talked To BCol either.
I hope it is. Business can be done in the summer. Right now Bryan should have his hands full scouting both draftees and other NBA players he might like to bring in.Benis007 said:Hope this isn't true.
JuniorNoboa said:I am sure BC would not mind James as a role player, combo guard in the 8 man rotation. Is $4.5M that unreasonable for a good bench player?
For Eddie House Money. 900k. Even Raja Bell was a 4.25 mill in the 1st year. James is not looking for that.speedythief said:^ But that's not to say he isn't the kind of scoring guard Colangelo likes, re: Eddie House.
Probably, but there are other priorities.NOODLESTYLE said:isn't Toronto interested in signing Peja Stojakovic?
