Mike James On The Drug Policy

Chad Hartman/KFAN talked to Mike James yesterday, mostly about the NBA drug policy. James started out by saying that rules are rules and people should abide by them. Then he got fired up and almost defensive, suggesting that the media and anyone else involved with the sport should also be required to get tested.

Hartman asked if he thought the policy was agressive enough and James responded that it was a little rough. His argument was that when it's time to be tested, the player may not be able to go to the bathroom because he may have already gone. James said that the player's focus should be on preparing for the game, but with a drug test looming, the focus turns to whether or not the player will be able to go to the bathroom.
