Undrafted out of St. Mary's University, Texas, the 6'8" small forward signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA) during the 1990-91 season and in 37 games, averaged 8.1 points per game.
He played with six other teams throughout his career, and once in 1996-97 as a member of the Atlanta Hawks, hit a then-record tying seven three-pointers in a quarter. He also had a career in the Philippine Basketball Association.
On September 7, 2006, James was charged with two counts of the felony for selling a total of $750 in crack cocaine to an undercover police officer on August 30 and September 7. His six children (all under the age of 11) were present during his last deal. In May 2007, James, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was sentenced to serve five years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a charge of distribution of a controlled substance.
