I’m not sure if this was the first dunk James White had since the Dunk Contest debacle, but it sure feels like it. Good for him.
“I’ve always wanted everybody to see what I was capable of,” White said. “It’s a dream come true for me.” – James White
“We are excited to welcome James to the family. He is a natural progression in K1X’ rich tradition of partnerships with outstanding leapers, that also includes the legendary dunking crew “Team Flight Brothers”. Basketball fans word-wide are in for an eye-popping treat, should the NBA invite James to All-Star Weekend (February 17th, Houston). I am positive that our guy is the highest jumping athlete the NBA has ever seen. Let the best dunker dunk!”
- Chris Grosse (K1X C.E.O.)
The Nuggets were high on high-flying dunker James White, but he ultimately couldn’t get ahead of Joey Graham and couldn’t get on the court in the preseason, and so Denver waived White today.
White averaged 7.3 points per game in the preseason, but he didn’t play in recent games, not even in Denver’s Tuesday blowout against Minnesota.
It appears the Nuggets’ roster is now set with 13 players, heading into the season opener Oct. 28.
