High Flight… James White With the likes of Ronnie Brewer, JR Smith and Iman Shumpert at the shooting guard position the Knicks seem to be pretty set at that position. Especially after watching the first two preseason games, it seems as if Mike Woodson will not hesitate to use Kidd at the two guard with either Pablo or Raymond running the show. So where does this leave high flying James White? That remains to be seen, especially after White didn’t seem to show much in his first action as a Knick Friday night against the Celtics. White hasn’t exactly had a story book road to the NBA and is a roster spot on this 2012-2013 Knicks roster a guarantee? White started off his college career in 2001 as a Florida Gator and experienced marginal success averaging 6.1 points per game. He frequently would amaze fans with put back dunks and fast break throw downs, but didn’t seem to fit in with other players on the team and in Billy Donovan’s system. However, after his freshman year he transferred to the University of Cincinnati where he had much greater success after sitting out a year. He averaged 16.3 points and 5.1 rebounds. While moving into the starting lineup at Cinci he also lettered in track and field, competing in the high jump and triple jump. White was drafted in the 2006 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers 31st overall, but was traded on draft night to the Pacers. He was cut by the Pacers without making the team that year but was signed to a two year contract by the San Antonio Spurs. He was assigned to the D-League soon after signing with the Spurs. After playing a few games during the year with the Spurs, White left the NBA and went to play in the Turkish League with Fenerbahce. While playing in Turkey, White won the Turkish dunk contest in 2008. In 2009 White played in the Russian Super League team, than an Italian team Dinamo Sassari and then finally signing a one year deal with Scavolini Peraro, before signing a 1-year 1.4 million dollar deal with the Knicks this past offseason. After a long journey across Europe, the D-League and college campuses has James White found a home at the World’s Most Famous Arena? It has yet to be seen if he can continue to work and find his niche with this Knicks team, one who is still looking to find its own identity. Whether James finds a roll with this team or not one thing is for sure, High Flight James White can definitely help bring back the NBA slam dunk title to New York.
