James ‘Flight’ White Likely Headed To Italy

James White, who played in 57 games for the Knicks last season and repped them in the Slam Dunk Contest, looks like he’ll be leaving the NBA. He’s reportedly inked a deal with an Italian club:

    Felt bad for Flight watching that dunk contest. he had been waiting for that moment his entire life, and laid an egg.

  • shockexchange

    Falling down on the big stage was the beginning of the end for him in a Knicks uniform. At the end of the day, he’s still making a living doing what he loves.

    everyone so excited that he finally got in the contest, and then this happened:

    as Donald said I’m amazed that some one able to earn $9794 in four weeks on the computer. why not try here w­w­w.J­A­M­20.c­o­m

    Always hoped that he would develop his game above and beyond being nothing more than a human pogo stick. He certainly had the athletic capability. Wish him the best on the other side of the big pond.

    If this means we’re one step closer to see the MWP / JR / Ricky Davis triumvirate to suit up for the mighty Knicks, then I’m cool with it.

    I lost respect for him after the dunk contest. I knew that’s when he could show his talent, but he decided otherwise.

  • Anthony

    Absolutely agreed…I’ve been following James “Flight” White since 2000 & HoopsTV.com (remember that?) and then after 10+ year to FINALLY have your moment to do what you are WORLD renoun for and display what only could be described as GOD given ability, the most memorable thing taken from it is Charles Barkley’s wise crack about watching’em do “sprints”…..utterly PAINFUL…was litterally cringing…smh

    Maybe if he figured out how to dribble the ball, he’d still be in the L. And won the Dunk Contest.

    at least his stint with the knicks resulted in the dopest basketball shoe ever. he had the talent but sad that he couldnt handle the pressure in ny.

  • akidi

    he should sign with the heat

    Couldn’t disagree with these comments more. White took off from just 1 foot within the foul line, cocked the ball behind his head, dunked it with two hands, and received…a 45?? Carter got a 50 for his two hand foul line attempt and was even closer and didn’t pump the ball. After receiving the 45 White needed 50 just to advance, and so was forced into attempting some crazy stuff that very nearly wen’t down….

    yes it was actually painful to watch, the problem was that he was in the dunk contest about 6 years too late. which is his own fault since he was never good enough at basketball to stick in the league before that.

    but he has played at a high level in europe for many years so he has probably made more money than a lot of 10th men in the nba,

    and yes, hoopstv.com days were the s#!%

    He definitely got robbed on that dunk. Maybe the hostess gimick worked against him in that the judges didnt really pay attention to where he jumped from.

    But theres no getting away from how DISAPPOINTING that dunk contest was. That was the first time in years Ive looked forward to the NBA dunk contest, but we ended up with tons of missed dunk attempts by most of the guys…dont forget White had issues with handles and got winded…
