Man, I Used to Love James Donaldson. Seattle Is Super Lucky.

One of our sister papers, the Seattle Weekly, has news today concerning my favoritest Dallas Maverick ever: James Donaldson. Turns out, the well-traveled baller with the bad knees -- who started with the Seattle SuperSonics before joining the Mavs in 1985 for a seven-season stint that included a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 1988 -- is making a run at the Seattle city council. Probably good timing, considering the former Mavs center is the closest thing the city'll get to an NBA player for a long while, as the Sonics bolt for Oklahoma City. I'm gonna spend the next seven minutes reliving 1988, after the jump. God, how I still hate, hate, hate the Los Angeles Lakers. --Robert Wilonsky
