Mike James Day

Thank god for Twolves Central otherwise I may have never found out about this:

Suffolk County, NY officially declared July 29th as "Mike James Day."

"Awesome, one of the top five things that has ever happened to me," James said. "The county dedicated a day to me for all the hard work and for not giving up. What I've come from and seen on the street - for me to overcome it and to know that the entire county acknowledges that, words can't describe how I feel. It's just amazing to know that my hard work and struggles are finally paying off."

No word yet on how the Timberwolves plan to mark this special occasion in Minneapolis.

Also worth checking out are the Mike James Basketball Experience and the Mike James Scholarship Foundation.
