i really like this guy. he is a big strong center. he improved his conditioning so much since his senior year of high school to now. i dought he will enter the draft this year and probably not next year, but i think he will stay 3 or 4 years at carolina and be a really complete center. he is already showing signs of how much potential he has, and i think he has a lot. he has a decent jumper now and i think he will learn post moves when he is there and learn to be more physical. great long term potential.
He really moves bodies on the o-glass and is a powerful finisher. He's got a soft looking stroke as well. I don't think he'll need any more than 2 yrs at UNC. He's already a big physical presence who knows how to use his big frame. James isn't incredibly springy, but he's got the mass and body strength to at least be a good post defender.
he does have a nice shooting touch. high release on his shot and a strong body. if he can excelerate the developement of his post moves then wow. we are looking at a great center prospect.
It's hard to believe he has only been playing basketball for two years. Seems to have great natural instincts and a soft touch to go along with it. He is going to shoot up the draft boards.
Reminds many around Chapel Hill of Brendan Haywood
