Nani drops 20 and what about Mike James?

A nice little start for our numero 1 draft pick, the Nanny. Driving to the hoop, hitting NBA three's, getting to the line, not crashing the boards and playing spotty D.

But hey....he's 20 and it's summer league. But a nice start nonetheless. Not to mention he can dribble.

On another note, people are offering Mike James 3 year contracts in the 5 million range....are you kidding me? If he is seriously thinking of taking offers like that and Colangelo isn't even making a pitch I'm wildly confused. Why we have totally and completely abandoned the thought of keeping James baffles me. He shoots in crunch time, he's a great 3 point shooter and he's got energy. Does this not fit into our new 'running' and 'up tempo' style of game? Does he not work hard enough and bring leadership to the locker room?

The only reason I abandoned hope is i thought he'd be getting a 5-6 year contract in the 6.5 to 7 million dollar range. A three year deal in the 5 million range is an absolute steal for Mike James. Brutal if we don't even make an offer, and utterly and totally baffling.
