Tim James IS a Soldier

Former University of Miami basketball star Tim James has voluntarily answered the call. The UM Hall of Fame inductee is currently serving in the army over in Iraq. SPC James was a first round draft pick of the Miami Heat and played also for the Hornets and 76ers. Additionally he spent a few seasons playing overseas. James decided not to tell his fellow soldiers or his commanding officer that he was a former NBA star, preferring to remain just one of the members of the team protecting our country and the people of Iraq. This is a story that makes every fan of the U and sports fans in general proud. The story is a great read by Dan Le Batard.
