Tim James: Former NBA player now with Army in Iraq

MIAMI (AP) - Vehicles broke down, problems flared up, and he simply fell behind.

Such things can happen on the front line of war in Iraq.

A former NBA player who often wondered about his true calling,
Tim James is now a U.S. Army soldier, stationed at Camp Speicher,
some 85 miles north of Baghdad.

It's a transformation that even many of the people closest to him never saw coming.

In layman's terms, he's part of the unit tasked with watching
and catching the bad guys before they plant bombs.
