Before joining the NBA, James was briefly a member of the Harlem Globetrotters. James guest starred with the Globetrotters on an episode of Scooby Doo. The episode took a notably dark turn when James ate all of the Scooby snacks and was mauled to death by Scooby Doo. James began his NBA career with the Sacramento Kings. He was thrown into the spot light after devouring Vlade Divac and taking his role as starting center. James was released by the Kings following the conclusion of the 1998-1999 season after it was discovered that he had eaten all of his team mates. The following year he signed with Seattle where he continued to disappoint. He was the most foul prone player in the league, often times fouling out of a game before entering. During the 2002-2003 season, James led the league in double cheeseburgers and apple turnovers. After scoring his first career points at the end of the 2004-2005 season, Knicks general manager Isiah Thomas signed Big Snacks to a 30 year, $500 million contract. His contract is notable for including food based incentives including free reign at the Krispy Kreme below Madison Square Garden in Penn Station. Considered a foolish move by many, James has fit in perfectly with Thomas' system of underachieving.

After Isiah Thomas was fired as head coach of the Knicks and promptly loaded into a rocket and fired into outer space, many began to question what type of role James would have on the Knicks. After mistaking teammate Nate Robinson for his afternoon snack, team management decided that they had no choice but to trade the troubled center. On February 19, 2009 the Knicks traded James to the Chicago Bulls for some irregular basketballs and a velvet bag filled with magic beans.

Smith has described him as "not just a bad basketball player but a bad human being as well."
