Wiki

Michael Lamont James (born June 23, 1975 in Amityville, New York) is an American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent.

The youngest of seven siblings, James's childhood was not without challenges. Crime, drugs, and violence troubled his neighborhood streets. Lack of social and economic opportunity made urban living grueling and difficult for James and his family. Undirected and uninspired, Mike found solace on the courts. More than recreation, basketball became his bloodline and a way to stay out of trouble. James's commitment and daily practice would soon payoff as he was invited to join the Amityville High School basketball squad. Unmatched and unbeatable, he performed extremely well. Despite his courtside accomplishments and extraordinary talent, no one believed Mike would ever play Division I basketball. Upon graduation, James proved every naysayer wrong when he earned a basketball scholarship to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

James had a college career at Duquesne University that saw him finish ranked third all-time in steals (201), fifth in assists (348) and 10th in points (1,411) at the school and included being named to the all Atlantic 10 Conference 1st team in his senior year. However, he was not drafted.
