Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-11-10

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-11-10All of his career, Wizards guard Mike James says he's had excellent communication with his coaches.

Until now.

James, a guard in the last year of his contract, started 50 games last season for the Wizards. However, this season he has appeared in just one, a blowout loss to Indianapolis.

"Even when he (coach Flip Saunders) came in, I'm pretty sure he spoke to certain players about what their role would be," James, making more than $6 million this season, said. "I haven't spoken to him twice. He hasn't said anything to me and it is clear that I wasn't in his plans from the beginning. I am at the point where I feel that it wouldn't have mattered what kind of condition I came into camp this season; I wasn't going to play.

"I don't think it's fair, no, not at all," James continued. "But I'm not the coach and I don't make the decisions. My problem, though, is that there is no conversation, no communication at all. Look at my record. I have never had as many DNP's (did not play) next to my name. At least since my rookie season. I'm a double-figures scorer, man. For my whole career. I have never been in a situation like this. Never."

In eight seasons since joining Miami as an undrafted rookie, James has averaged 10.5 points. He has started 263 for his career."

SUNS 102, WIZARDS 90: Phoenix's Steve Nash had 11 points, and his 17 assists were two more than the Wizards entire team posted as Washington dropped its fourth game in a row.

The Wizards, expected to have a formidable offense this season under new coach Flip Saunders, have failed to score more than 90 in their last four games. Gilbert Arenas and Andray Blatche both scored 20 in a losing effort.

Nash was one of four Phoenix players to finish with a double-double.
