Getting a chance to play in the NBA is such a precious and rare experience that you can’t fault a guy for taking it any way he can get it.
Mike James, 36, is the perfect example.
James is a veteran guard who has bounced around to various NBA teams, D-League squads and one Turkish club. On Wednesday, the Chicago Bulls called him up to play in their game versus the Washington Wizards. Problem was, James ended up being such a late arrival that the equipment managers didn’t have a chance to stitch his name onto the back of the jersey.
Did he create a fuss about it? Nope.
James played a grand total of 40 seconds in the eventual win.
Don't be surprised if you start seeing jerseys with no names on the back popping up all over the world now.
