NBA Comparison: Charles Oakley

Strengths: Bigman with an intriguing combination of strength and agility to run the floor ... A bull in a China shop. He's a basketball version of a defensive takle, he's an immovable object in the paint, ideal for setting screens and playing physical basketball ... Appears to love contact, showing a willingness to give up his body and bang in the post ... Unlike many guys his size, James shows touch and a willingness to hustle, geting up and down the floor with good speed ... Plays light on his feet, allowing him to block shots and grab boards ... Plays with good energy and hits the boards hard ... Shows a soft touch and good shooting form, giving him promising potential offensive development ... Has legitimate center size at 6'10 with a likely 7-foot plus wingspan ...

Weaknesses: Still has a ways to go to become a complete basketball player ... More prospect than player, at this point. While he shows a good shooting stroke, he still has a long ways to go offensively. He should look to develop a consistent mid-range jump shot and develop consistent post moves ... Will need to prove that he can handle increased minutes without any conditioning issues ...

Notes: Impressed scouts at the 2012 Maui Invitational with his combination of size, strength, mobility and touch ... Was not a highly acclaimed recruit. Came into college ranked by recruiting gurus as as a top 60 high school senior in a weak class ...
