Is James Donaldson Running for Mayor?

After declaring his interest in running for city council quite some time ago, the towering ex-Sonic has made it clear that he's exploring a run for mayor. So today we asked Donaldson if he'd decided which office to run for yet. His reply: "I know in my mind the decision is made, but I'm not ready to commit just yet."

Interpret that quote however you may. Our best guess: Mayor Nickels will have a seven-foot-tall opponent very soon. And lest you buy into the "dumb jock" notion that good ballers don't make good pols, remember these names: Bill Bradley, Arne Duncan, Kevin Johnson, and Dave Bing. Johnson, in particular, could be a boilerplate for Donaldson, as the former Sacramento King and Phoenix Sun point guard, a political novice and an underdog in the earlygoing, knocked off a two-term incumbent to win this past November.
