Damion James Reappears After Long Summer, Gets Props, Court Time

Damion James, who we haven't heard from in a while, got some attention this weekend.  Last year's rookie, whose injuries kept him out of 57 games, played alongside his Texas teammate and friend Kevin Durant at Chris Paul's benefit game.

Then, HoopsWorld named him one of five players they think will have a "breakout" season (whenever it starts).  Jason Fleming noted that in the nine games he started last year, "he averaged 23.1 minutes, 6.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.3 steals, and shot 59% from the field."

As for the CP3 benefit, where (we think) he scored 7 points, SLAM noted only his presence, saying James' main role was "offering a breather to 'Melo, KD and Co only when they asked." Hey, he played.
