Washington, DC, December 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- NBA star point guard Mike James discusses his life on and off the court. He opens up about his family, career, and soon to be released memoirs. Mike and wife Angela also discuss balancing their family life with their busy schedules.
From the beginning Mike notes, “I love being a dad!” Mike and Angela are the proud parents of four daughters, Jadon, Amaya, Michal, and McKinley. With four energetic and talented girls, ages ranging from 1 to 9, there is never a dull moment, as seen on a 2008 episode of Supernanny. Angela says, “We decided to participate in Supernanny because Mike was leaving for the basketball season and it was the first time the family had been separated. I wanted to get some tips from an expert on the best way to handle this for the girls.”
Outside of the home, Mike and Angela both have their hands full. Mike’s memoirs Fight For Your Dreams will hit stores in early February and is a project that is near and dear to his heart. “It is an inspiring story about my life growing up in Amityville and the struggles and perseverance needed to accomplish my dreams of being the best I can be”. Mike adds “I am hoping to encourage young people everywhere that they can be anything they want in life with hard work and perseverance.” While Angela, who loves to cook, is currently working on a pilot for a cooking show set to air in the spring of 2010.
In the midst of their hectic lives, Mike and Angela demonstrate the importance of giving back to their daughters, through the Mike James Foundation. Mike started the foundation in 2005 with Angela’s assistance to provide opportunities for kids growing up in environments similar to Mike’s hometown of Amityville, NY. Mike says, “It's about getting these kids to believe they can be anything they want to be”.
