Denver Nuggets give Damion James training camp invite

Isn’t that nice? The Denver Nuggets are going to give Damion James a try despite his injury history. From NBC Sports:

Damion James broke his foot his rookie year with the Nets and sadly that has pretty much defined his career to this point. He never really got healthy with the NEts, he had to have a second surgery to replace a screw in his foot, and with this his game never really developed as it needed to. The Nets cut him loose after a couple of seasons, last season bringing him back on a 10-day contract at one point

The article goes on to say James won’t actually make the team but, he can make an NBA comeback. He play all of last season in the D-League so that’s a good sign. He was also a D-League all-star too. We can also talk about how he really needs to expend and improve his shooting game. He played PF in college but has a SF NBA body. But, he doesn’t have outside range. So yeah, he’s got a ways to go. But, if he works hard enough, I think somebody will sign him and take a chance.

I hate injuries that kill a career before it starts. That whole “what if” thing sucks.
